A Palace on the River, Rashmi Guest House
Ranked #27 of 87 Hotels in Varanasi
Reviewed October 26, 2013

We stayed there in May 2011 and were delighted. The guest house is central in Varanasi, on the Ghats. We had a quite big room with view over the river (Ganga)... with a mouse that ate our biscuits ;-) The roof restaurant is very nice, service as well. Just very hot due to the sun if you sit on the terrace.

Overall a very good experience... if you are not afraid of mice!

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room with view on the Ganga, an unforgettable experience!

My stay with Rashmi was very good. The size of the room, though is a bit cramped, was good for two people. The quality of room severice was very good.

The most I liked about the guest house is the veiw from their roof top restaurant which provides an exceptional view of River Ganga.

We stayed two nights in this hotel. Our room was tiny. The bathroom is awful specially the toilet. The good thing of this hotel is the location. The restaurant is on top of the building and offers good views to Ganges. Breakfast is a bit poor. Be careful with the stairs on the main entrance specially when it has rained, they become very slippery.

In February, 2013 my wife and I stayed for four days as part of Craig Bell's group Tour to Varanasi and the Kumbh Mela in Allahbad. The staff was warm and inviting, understood English well, and was responsive to our every need!! This is one good place to stay when you are tired and need to have some comfort and quiet!! The room was comfortable and the hot water shower worked very well.
It is right on the Ganges River, and it affords a beautiful view,especially from the
Rooftop, where you can eat in comfort. It is like being in a little oasis on the River!

Room Tip: Rooms tend to be a little small, and larger ones are more expensive, but if you don't need a lo...

I had an excellent late-lunch there with great food and perfect service. The waiter-staff was so welcoming and pleasurably served us. It is located at the feet of the Ganges and has one of the best views.

stayed here several times. Yes, rooms are small, electricity can be unreliable, there R a lot of stairs and the location is not extremely quiet but this is the standard for all accommodations along the Ganges and in the old city of Varanasi. Having said this, Rashmi provides excellent service and value for your money all things considered. You won't do better than this. The staff are extremely helpful and the food in the restaurant is very good, hygienic and service is good. If you visit Varanasi give this place a try.
