I LOVED this guest house. It has everything you could want; clean rooms, fantastic views of the Ganga, great food, excellent value, and perhaps most importantly, warm, friendly helpful staff.
if you're going to Varanasi, stay here.

I stayed in this guesthouse for three days and two nights in Feb 2014. The moment I entered into guest house I got a positive vibe. I was lucky to have a ghat facing room. Location is just wonderful with very beautiful and clear view of river Ganga. Walking distance to main Ghat where Ganga Aarti is performed every night and to Kashi Vishwanath Temple (Main Temple). Polite and courteous staff who are happy to go out of way to assist you in any way.

I have been welcomed every time I returned from my daily excursion. Mr Mehrotra (Owner) is simply awesome.

Serene ambience, good food, roof top restaurant, neat and clean rooms and list goes on and on. I would highly recommend this place if you are looking for a safe and friendly environment.

I think i established a bond with this place and its people during my very short visrt. It's true what they say "a home away from home".

This small, but very centrally located lodge, run by Manu and his four boys, was one of the great surprises that Varanasi has to offer. We ran into the place while looking for some other accommodation in the same area, but eventually decided to stay here for 3 nights. Everytime we entered, Manu welcomed us 'back home'. The positive points of the Sunrise Lodge is it's nice location, good (separate from the room) HOT shower, and the great restaurant on the balcony of the building. The kitchen is run by four young boys, cooking and serving all the food. Sitting outside, looking down on the river Ganges is an experience on its own. The rooms might be on par with other places in the vicinity, Sunrise lodge had just that extra bit of athmosphere to offer. It's location is right next to the bigger 'Burning Ghat' in the city and to go either left or right for a walk alongside the river is absoutely worth it. If you walk away from the river, there is some interesting places nearby, like the Yoga training centre, brown bread bakery and the Ganga Fuji home restaurant. Overall, we had a great stay in Varanasi!

I was very lucky to find this place, after looking around for a few days. It's next to Alka and Gampati, but managed by its owner, Manu, who welcomes you every time you come in and shares good knowledge on the history and secrets of Varanasi, if you are kind with him. The restaurant offers excellent food at a fair price. Palak Paneer is delicious. I highly recommend this place, specially if u are planing a long stay. The atmosphere gathers very nice travelers also.
