I frequent this hotel several times a year and have grown to love it. It is one of the best options along the river, and is clean and comfortable by most standards. It is the quietest hotel I've stayed in in Varanasi (if you stay away from the entrance/lobby area), and the staff is courteous and quickly attends to any requests. The beds are slightly more comfortable than other places I've stayed, but you should expect a typical Indian bed. They recently started accepting credit cards, which has made payment much easier. The food in the hotel is ok, but it is not the best breakfast you can find in Varanasi. The convenient location in Assi Ghat is desirable. Overall, I've come to appreciate this hotel within the context of the ghats and Varanasi. While over-priced, It is reliable and consistent, and I will stay here again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Palace on Ganges is a new, immaculately clean hotel with 22 rooms, each named for -- and said to be decorated in the style of -- a different region of India. Our rooms were good-sized and well appointed (cable TV sets, non-alcholic mini-bar, tables and chairs). The staff is friendly and attentive. Food is vegetarian and well prepared. The big advantage is Palce on Ganges's location. It is at Asi Ghat, And while it's "on the Ganges," a small road and a large where you can get the cab easily from just out of the hotel. Views of the Ganges from the balcony -- and rooms facing the river (on supplement charges) -- are far less good than those from, among others hotels. Disadvantages: not all rooms face the river. ... more less
