While my office booked the hotel , I was not happy as the name didn`t carry any Big Label .
But to my surprise , the Room , Food , Breakfast and service was Fantastic.

It was beyond my expectation to get such a nice clean room , with almost all the facilities a good Label of hotel can provide in a City like Varanasi.

The morning breakfast was decent , on top i requested for something out of the Buffet Spread , and it was served to me with a smile.

Great Luxury for the price we pay.

I suggest the Hotel to keep the good service on .. Keep up the good work.

Room Tip: Prefer the room on the south side was peaceful , any ways this hotel is away from the Hustle bustle...

We requested an airport pickup and the driver is very friendly and helpful, airport to hotel is roughly 30-45 minute drive. Upon arrival at the hotel, checking in was a breeze and we were upgraded to a suite. The room itself is very huge and modern, however the amenities in the bathroom are not quite complete, you still have to ask for toothbrush, slippers and shaving kit. Wifi is also not free but it's really cheap. The staff also asked us if we need a tour around Varanasi which is very nice of them.

We also had dinner at their restaurant downstairs and the quality of the food is quite good especially the food we ordered was chinese food. We also had breakfast in their restaurant and it was quite basic and quality of food is not that good; muffins are really tough and the milk is already solidifying a bit. The only problem we had was when we needed to have something printed which we sent to the hotel email as advised but when we were about to get it, the staff said he didn't receive any email.

Overall, we had a great stay and I highly recommend this hotel in Varanasi.

Nice hotel, room was very clean, breakfast ok, evening meal nice. Staff excellent. Unfortunately the pool was not available for our 9 year old while were there which we were disappointed about but the hotel arranged for us to use the pool next door so we were really happy! Yes I would stay here again

I was on a short trip to BHU stayed in this hotel. Good hospitality shown by Mr. Sadiq and his team at the front desk. Rooms are above average clean, Good Air-conditioning, Spacious. The restaurant has good quality food though i thought the menu could have had more variety. Reasonably priced for this quality. Slightly away from main CBD area but neverthless i had good stay

I had an excellent stay in the hotel the service was very good. The rooms are very clean. Due to heavy VIP movement, the rooms were fully booked on May 6 to 8. However I was pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to Deluxe Suite. My thanks to Mr. Sadiq and his Team on the Front office. Well mannered staff, with pleasing persons at the desk.

Food was good, but i would have preferred some south Indian food too.

However i was completely at home otherwise. I strongly recommend this Hotel for the care they take for the guests. excellent Hospitality

Room Tip: Please book at least 1 to 2 months in advance as there is usually good demand for the rooms

Excellent stay and service is very good .It is good as this is a non smoking hotel.Kumar Ujwal is very helpful in guiding everything.Lakan singh and Jitender were very professional at breakfast and very helpful in completing the breakfast.Taxi is very costly when u book with this hotel.we can't believe the outside driver and it may be a safety issue,hence we booked through hotel only.

I request the hotel management to focus light on he taxi rates as they are very high when compared to taxi suppliers in Varanasi.This needs to be corrected if possible to them.

All the staff very polite and professional.AC is very powerfull and real.Breakfast has number of variety and really tasty.

Stayed at this hotel in April and I was not particularly impressed by the cleaning standard especially the bathroom. The room was comfortable. The hotel and restaurant staff were helpful and professional at all times.
