This hotel is the worst we have EVER stayed at in the world. Charged $200 for 2 rooms. Dirty bed Linen, wires in bathroom just hanging beside toilet. Huge tile revealing a very large hole at the side of bath. No towels in both rooms and when they were taken up the staff just stood with there hand out for money! No fly screen on window so a sheer drop to ground. The other room my kids were so cold in the morning and when we looked the vent in the bathroom went straight outside so therefore the cold air was coming in. No phone or internet available until 10am in the morning. Staff very un helpful. Breakfast was yuk. When we were waiting for taxi outside loads of beggers at the gates. This is not a hotel and how they are allowed to operate is beyond me. Hard to say if this hotel is half built or half falling down.

We just returned after a 2 day stay in this hotel, and the rooms were not ready, the cupboards and electricity were un-done. The telephone connections from room to reception were not available and most of all there was no hot water in this cold winter. Though they claim it is bed and breakfast, the food laid out in the buffet is inadequate for the number of people they host. Therefore the guests are hand picked and served. The attention was to high ranking officials of the Indian Government who were occupying the hotel and the rest of the guests were left to serve them selves. Even tea coffee was not served at the table for us the lesser mortals while the fortunate ones got 2 and 3 cups. This hotel is manged by the minor staff who sleep on the couches at night. The repairs to rooms are ongoing and hence the carpets are caked with dust. Total experience was a nightmare. We finally took a bath with buckets of hot water demanded and served after about 10 trips to the reception, since the telephones are just ornaments.

Room Tip: As of now, we did not see any good rooms, coz the VIP guests and their kids are allowed to play on t...

The hotel was OK with clean rooms though the air conditioning was very noisy and was interlinked with the fan. So Air con on with fan or air con off no fan..

The food was the worst of our trip which encorported stays in nine hotels. The restaraunt smelled musky probably due to the water damaged ceilings.

Although there were five resaraunts adviertised there was only one open though you could get food in the rooftop bar. The Internet was not available during our stay, though we were constntly assured that it would be available soon, maybe an hour..!!

The staff were friendly enough especially Sanjeet in the rooftop bar.

This place was booked & paid for through our tour package, & for the price paid it definitely wasn't worth it. They gave us the worst room in the entire building (#108), which has no window & felt like we were staying in a cave. The room is at the end of a hallway & there was evidence of the door being forced open many times from the hallway. There was also no safe in the room.

The biggest problem with this property is that we had to call the front desk & ask them to turn on the AC in our room every time we wanted it on. Without it, the room was very muggy even with the ceiling fan going. The AC would only stay on for an hour or so, then it would turn off. I woke up sweaty several times during the night & had to call again & again for the AC to be turned back on. And, by the morning, it was only blowing air, not cool air. Very annoying for the price paid. The shower was rarely warm, but it did actually work.

The location of this hotel is not good if you want to truly experience Varanasi. It will cost roughly 150 rupees to get to the Ghats. It is also not possible to walk to any restaurants nearby, which means you have to endure cheap, tasteless food at this hotel. The breakfast buffet (which was included in the price of our room) was leftover food from dinner. Cold french fries, mixed vegetables, & not even an Indian breakfast offering. We chose to eat elsewhere.

The WiFi is not free. They charge 60 rupees per hour & it is only available in the lobby. I do not recommend this hotel at all.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else

This hotel is overestimated, 4000 roupies!!! for a dirty room, the personnel is unfriendly rude and helpless, A travel agency in Delhi (FORVOL) book this hotel for us and of course FORVOL must pay half the price and charge us full price.
The only good thing, this hotel is well located in a good area of Varanasi (cantonment)
Avoid Forvol travel agency in Delhi and India hotel in varanasi.

Room Tip: avoid this place
