Stayed here for three days on tour of India and it was an excellent base for exploring this strange but very special city. We were here at festival time and the city was very busy, but you can get a tuk-tuk outside the hotel to take you as near as possible to the river.
Hotel room and facilities are really comfortable, maybe a little outdated but not complaining at all. Meals are good too, with plenty of choice for all tastes.
What really upset me was that a member of staff tried to 'diddle' me when I changed money in the hotel. I was given no receipt and when I checked the rupees I had received it was less than I expected. I went back and the extra was handed over with a shrug and no comment. I expect they thought that I was a stupid foreign tourist who would not check. The duty manager was sitting nearby and didn't say a word, so maybe it was an accepted scam.
So this soured the stay here for me. I liked the hotel, so if your stay there, check everything, and demand a receipt if you change money!
