Hotel Haifa
Ranked #34 of 80 Hotels in Varanasi
Reviewed August 26, 2010

As a single woman travelling, I felt very safe and comfortable at this small hotel. My room was very clean and the staff were helpful, efficient and friendly. I was able to book all excursions from the hotel at a fair price. The restaurant served a wide selection of very good food. I would recomment staying at Hotel Haifa if you are planning on visiting Varanasi.

I stayed in Hotel Haifa in August of 2010. They're service and accommodations were great. The staff was consistently helpful and approachable, even after unexpected changes in my travel plans. I highly recommend Hotel Haifa for those staying in Varanasi near Assi ghat.

Stayed in Varanasi with two friends. The staff bent over backwards to help us. We enjoed the food at the restaurant and would definitely stay here again!

As a journalist/photographer I must say this middle class hotel is a good place to stay for a couple of day's. They building an extension to the hotel and will be ready this summer. It's a pity that it's not mentioned anymore in the planet guide. Food is simple but fine and not expensive. They do their best to make you feel comfortable. Varanasi is a dirty place so you need a clean hotel to get some rest.

We ended up staying here a lot longer than we had expected because my wife injured her ankle, and we came away with a good impression.

The staff was generally very courteous (they suggested moving us to a room on the first floor so my wife wouldn't have far to walk), and provided good room service. The furniture in the room was pretty worn around the edges, but it was clean. There don't seem to be a lot of places in India with central heating, but they provided us with a small space heater that served the purpose well (in January, heat will be a big issue).

The restaurant was okay. Not a great place for atmosphere, but the food was alright (they also make some pretty good Middle-Eastern food).

I think this would be a good choice if you're looking for inexpensive but decent accommodation.

If you are venturing to Varanasi and want to stay in the best local hotel, Hotel Haifa is the place to be. With a kind and accommodating staff, safe clean food, a money exchanger in the hotel and access to the internet this is the best you can get while in a safe area and only a very short walk to the Ganga. Hotel Haifa is wonderful!

I stayed at Hotel Haifa thanks to a recommendation from a friend who spends extended periods in Benares. As another reviewer mentions, it was indeed difficult to make a booking (no response to my e-mail for several days)--but once I arrived, I was very pleasantly surprised from start to finish. Rooms were very clean, and desk staff incredibly helpful and friendly; the travel desk is helpful and there is free wireless internet. When the heater proved inadequate, they went out of their way to rustle up a better one. The food in the restaurant was quite decent and very reasonably priced (though takes a very long time to come). This is not a luxury hotel (hot water was fitful in my room), but for $25/night it was superb value in an excellent and relaxing part of town. Highly recommended!
