A Very good hotel. Very hospitable staff. Very big place in the center of the varanasi. The ghats are a small rickshaw ride away. Great food as well. Good free wireless Internet. The signal was good in the room as well. Neat and clean bathrooms.

Hotel Varuna has a very beautiful decor. Rooms are spacious and well made. The garden is a nice place to relax and read a book. The hospitality of the staff are no less than five star standards. A good place to stay in Varanasi

We stayed in hotel Varuna for 3 nights. The hotel is great. We booked through their website, executive room. When we came there, we saw, that the executive room is not for us, so we decided to pay more and get a superior room, but then they ve upgraded us to a suite room free of charge. Thank you for that. The room was great, big, with LCD TV, good WIFI, lots of windows. Mr Rajiv Tripathi was very, very helpfull and very nice and always there :). He speaks very good english and solves every problem you have. They always called a riksha for us, so we payed the fair price to the gaths. We ate breakfast and dinner at the hotel (room service) and the food was great. The family, which owns the hotel is very sweet, they showed us the plans for a new restaurant in 3rd floor and as we saw, it will be great.
This was our 3rd trip to Varanasi and it was the best hotel so far. (Before we stayed near Ganges, which was a good location, but bad hotels). So next time, when we visit, we will stay at Varuna and we will recommend this hotel to all our friends, who travel around.

Room Tip: Superior room with the balcony is nice, and the suite room is the best - very huge.

Hotel varuna is one of the better hotels that I have stayed in. I loved the decor of the Lounge Cafe which has very interesting Varanasi photographs on display. The food was good and was served in the Lounge Cafe which is their primary restaurant. I was told a new restaurant is opening on the third floor this month. The rooms were nice cosy as well. The hotel staff were very helpful. I had a good stay.

The Hotel has been recently renovated & that is the only plus in the property. There is no restaurant which limits the choices & the quality is also affected. Though the Menu Card shows many items but availability is limited.

We were a group of friends from thailand and we stayed in hotel varuna in varanasi. The rooms were big and bright and the bed was comfortable. There was a balcony facing a beautiful garden. The hotel staff were very curteous. The hotel location is very good and it is thus very easily approachable. Its is in the center of the city. All major attractions of varanasi are at almost equal distances. Transport is readily available to the ghats and temples and it is very cheap as well. The best thing is that the area in which the hotel is located is pretty clean compared to the rest of the city.

Varanasi is ugly and dirty almost everywhere, so this modern hotel is kind of an oasis. I was given a studio room (because I made the mistake of booking with a crooked Delhi tourist office) which had no ventilation, only an interior window onto the lobby! I suppose other rooms are better. The staff was helpful and "westernized" as if they understood western needs and tried to cater to them, unlike many other hotels in India. Location is not great if you want to see the Ganges, because you are half way accross town, but it's a short rickshaw ride away.
