this place is ehh - the rooms are a bit dingy and the food is average at best. several of the outlets didn't work and the power was out daily for many of the daytime hours. the location is good at assi ghat and the service is friendly. for the same price, though, you can find somewhere much nicer. nice view from the roof and cheap in-room massages.

Just now I have returned from Varanasi and I stayed there with my parents. We got a room on the ground floor, so was not able to see any nearby view from room. There was no balcony attached but the view from rooftop was good.Room was clean, however they didn't have the service to clean the room / toilet and changing bed sheets on daily basis which was bit awful. Over all, an average place to Stay in Varanasi.

We paid 1000 rupees for a double room with an extra bed in. Our room was on the roof, which is lovely and you get a great view over the Ganges, but the rooms up there seem smaller so it was very cramped for three of us - the downstairs rooms would have been better to fit an extra bed in. Plus we struggled to get any water pressure at all, out of the taps or the shower so maybe the downstairs rooms would be better for this too. The location was great on Assi Ghat, a quiet little getaway compared to the rest of the city, with still enough around to entertain you. Staff were helpful and polite, but we were surprised to read good reviews about the food - we tried a few of the Indian dishes as well as the porridge for breakfast and it was all terrible! Would recommend to stay, but eat elsewhere!

Hotel Temple On Ganges
Hotel is ideally situated in asi gat. We arrived at the hotel for 14 nights.
The hotel is very clean and managed by a charming family, the family is known that it is very straight with the guests
Delicious vegan food. Various rooms in size but all very clean, air-con, TV, plenty of hot water and a good view of River Ganga from the balcony.
We have been upgraded to a wonderful room, no extra charge, and we felt that we were not in the hotel but in the family house
Strongly recommending this hotel, enjoy every minute, and prices are really fair and cheap.


המלון נקי מאד ומנוהל על ידי משפחה מקסימה ולבבית, ידועה בכך שהיא ישרה מאד ולא מרמה את האורחים.
האוכל במלון טעים וטבעוני. החדרים שונים בגודלם אבל כולם נקיים מאד, יש גם מזגן, טלוויזיה, ומים חמים בשפע.
אותנו שידרגו לחדר מעולה, ללא תוספת תשלום, והרגשנו שאנחנו לא במלון אלא בבית המשפחה.
ממליצה בחום, תיהנו מכל רגע, והמחירים ממש הוגנים וזולים.

The room was clean & basic providing a good view of River Ganga from the balcony. The staff was very courteous & were very prompt in providing the requirements. The food was super and was made on request out of the menu.
Overall it provides a quiet atmosphere for relaxation.

The only negative point is the power problem, which is common to the city.

Room Tip: Ask for rooms on upper floors facing the river.

As last year I stayed at the hotel for a month while studying Hindi.

The room was simple but clean and the staff and owners were very encouraging of the attempt to speak Hindi.

If you are looking for something flash this is not for you. But if you want to stay with friendly people in an excellent location at Assi and close to BHU this is an excellent choice. And the views of the Ganges are enchanting.

Put it on your list.

Room Tip: Swimming pool and fitness centre are not terrible, just not there. If you want something just tel...
