“Clean and new”
Reviewed February 26, 2013

Hotel Central is a very small Hotel but clean and new. The road side rooms are noisy and our stay in February coincided with the kumbh mela and the rates were a little too high for the size of the Hotel.
Neverthe less it was a nice small and new place that was neat and clean.

Mixed feelings here.
The rooms are quite basic and unfortunately not too clean (don't even think of unpacking your bags and using the wardrobe), although the design seems to show that the owners did try to create something quite comfortable (ceiling lighting, flat screen TVs). The bed was ok-ish when it comes to comfort, but the uncovered blanket and the pillow that came coming out of the case leave too much room for imagination (were they ever washed?). Also, the hotel is located right next to a noisy street, but then again - noise is a constant problem in India, anyway. And if you take a room on the quieter side of the building, you'll be ok.
On a positive note, the staff are quite friendly and nice. and the owner (or a manager? not sure of his role) was interested in hearing our feedback so that he could make improvements in the future, which is always a good thing to see. Decent breakfast, hot water - so not too bad, overall.

Room Tip: Try to get a room at the back or make sure you have earplugs with you.

This is a newly-build hotel (since the summer of 2012), so I can understand why there were some bad reviews during the opening period when facility and service were not quite ready yet. But I write this positive review because those flaws do not exist anomore during my stay (Jan, 2013).

The staffs here, including managers, reception people, house-keeping, room-sevice, restaurant staffs are all polite and will respond to your need. They don't play tricks here as you would experience in many hotels in Varanasi (like half forcing you to do this or that sightseeing package and shop in silk factory, etc.)

I really don't think you need to stay nearby Ganges unless you have to stay in budget hotel with view of that river or walk around Ganges bank all the time. It is convinient enough to just take a taxi or rikshaw (auto or bike) to the Ganges, as well as to Sarnath, railway station, airport, or any other place of interests in Varanasi. Moreover, there is a nice mall, with McDonauld, Damino Pizza, Coffee Day Cafe and a contemporary Cinema included, just 3 mins walk from the hotel. That mall is a place where you can have clean fast food and nice coffee away from the dusty streets and air-polluted city, which is actually a nice treat you can hardly get in Varanasi (unless you will stay in fancy hotels).

The room in this hotel is cozy, comfortanble, and feels contemporary and clean. Hot shower and in-room free wifi works well most of time. Food is nice. You feel safe in this hotel because it is located in a safe area, Sigra, in the middle of everwhere.

Taxi service is nice. The driver i got was a slow driver. Very safe and polite. They charge fair taxi fee. If you are taumitized by all kinds of tricks of lifting up prices, then maybe you would ease your mind in this hotel.

If you are not going to stay in expensive fancy 4-5 star hotels in Cantonment area or budget hotels in Ganges side, and if you just want to stay in a clean and reliable hotel in a safe area where you can get nice food and coffee or movie theater....then I think I will not understand why you dont want to come to try this mid- priced nice option.

Room Tip: Dont choose rooms of the main car road side if you want to sleep longer.

Enjoyed My Short Stay here. New Property, Clean Room, Modern Bathroom, Very Comfortable Bed & Very Good Air Conditioning (Silent) , As the name "Central Residency" suggests itself, located in the Center of Varanasi, Safe and just 50 meters from a Shopping Mall IP, having, McDonald & Domino and Cinema Hall. Did some Shopping for Silk in Mughal District as Varanasi is famous for its Silk (again within 200 meters) Railway Station is just 1 Km away. Friendly but Learning staff ;)

New Property And New Management, Few little glitches in smooth running, But rectified instantly on complain.

Room Tip: No Elevator .. Rooms at the back side are more quieter

I ended up in this hotel by chance. It was too hot to bear in the G/H's without A/C:-) A good friend recommended this new hotel to me. I simply loved it! It is practically new! The rooms are immaculate. The bed sheets crisp and white. The bathroom a joy! Location is simply heaven with the mall being in spitting distance. The staff is really helpful and courteous and the food in the restaurant is very tasty. As the hotel has recently started operating fully I feel it deserves to be re-evaluated. This is a great mid-range option in Varanasi.
