The highlight of this new hotel in the cantonment area, thankfully outside the chaos of the main part of town, is the amazing food in the main restaurant. We found the overall hotel service very good, as well, and so are the prices. The hotel has cut a few corners with construction, all seemingly cosmetic (acoustical tile in the luxe bathrooms seem like a mistake, and our TV was hung crooked). The feel is very modern and stylish, if a tad spare. The staff couldn't do enough to help and offered many times to assist with tour arrangements. When we arrived almost at sundown, not with a group, the team whisked about to arrange for us to make the ghat evening ceremony on the Ganges. The hotel truly seems like a wonderful addition to the Varanasi scene in a town not to be missed.
