“Very Comfortable Stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2013

My family had a very pleasant stay at Hotel Varuna from 22nd sep to 27th sep 2013. The check in was quick as we had prior bookings. The front desk was very polite, professional and accomdative. The complimentary wifi was much appreciated.
full marks for the quality of rooms they provide.

The location of the property is apprx 2.5 kms from Dashashwamedh ghat, but is not a concern.You can get an auto or rikhshaw just outside the hotel or at the corner of the road. The food is tasty and served quickly. The mini bar is equipped with chocolates, chips and aerated drinks. Overall a very comfortable stay at the hotel and we had a great holiday, and definitely i would suggest Hotel Varuna to my family / friends who would visit Varanasi.

Room Tip: Superior Rooms are Great..!!

I visited Varanasi two weeks back for 3 days and we chose to stay at Hotel Varuna .Our experience at this hotel was great. I would rate this hotel no less than 5. Their service, staff behavior, room quality , everything deserves an applause.
They upgraded superior room booking to Varuna Luxury Suite room for free of charge.
I would recommend this place for those who are looking for very good hotel in affordable budget.

We tried Varuna after mixed reviews on Trip Advisor. I am sorry to say, the experience was very very poor.

- for starters the rooms are nowhere as they show on their pictures. there are 2 rooms that are very good for which they charge a premium. for rest of the rooms the overall quality of furnishings and the bathrooms is bad!

- also the bathrooms on majority of the rooms are not connected to a shaft, and the rooms dont have a window; making the living expereince very humid and stuffy. it is managable with an AC, however during the power cuts in Varanasi their ACs dont run as the generators are not designed to carry the AC load.

- Service is very poor. vereything is over priced for Banaras standadards, and when one complains, the message is take it or leave it.

The hotel Symbolises the UP filth in mind and body. stay on your own peril. I suggest a cheaper hotel that atleast has windows and an open attitude to go with them.

Bad service .. bad behavior .... way far from ghat ... we were a group of 18 people and can't even provide food for all of us even though ordered before 2-3 hours. I stayed in different types of hotels in thought out India and abroad but never experienced such service in my life. Will never ever stay in this hotel in my life and already told all my friends and relatives about this pathetic hotel. BTW they serve tea for Rs.65 now imagine what all other prices are in the menu.

We stayed here 3 nights..and It was the best and amazing option we could have in this Price Range.Because before coming in Varanasi I had checked its rating and reviews and also was recommended by a friend..And It was more then our expectation....

They provided a good breakfast..which is enough with nice, Clean & AC Room...Power is a Big problem in Varanasi. But they Provided AC Backup which we didn't find in other hotel of this range before choosing Hotel Varuna

Amazing FOOD,Free Wi-Fi, Wonderful garden, Superb helpful Staff..Nice Location..Just 15-20 min by rickshaw for main river...We are so happy that we found such a Excellent Service in our low Budget... :))

.In short :You Get...what you pay for"...VALUE FOR MONEY...RECOMMENDED!!!!

Room Tip: Room with Garden View is great!

I went to Varanasi in the month of July last year and, was recommended Hotel Varuna for a nice, peaceful stay. Yes, the hotel was up to my expectations. The service was fast and appreciable. The staff was helpful and polite at every instant. Rooms were satisfactory, you get what you pay for. The best thing about the Hotel is its location, its quite near to the Railway Station and also has a nearby market. The overall experience was satisfatory. I would surely recommend this to others and, would love to visit there again. Cheers!
