Just go to ganapati if you do not want to have you computer/charger destroyed by their shoddy electricity (works fine at ganapati next to this hotel). The manager takes no responsibility for anything and is quite rude. --- my computer with a perfect converter which has worked for months all over even sketchier electrically challenged areas was blown out destroying my charger and computer with it. Since the manager takes absolutely no responsibility and there is no warning please be careful!
Unlike the hotel right next door- they actually charge you for Internet which actually makes this very low quality hotel (comparatively) more expensive than the nice one next door...something to consider.
For a women alone - there are always random men sitting in the entrance staring at you as you enter or leave- something to understand before if that makes u uncomfortable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Hotel Alka, a synonym for customer-oriented services from years, believes in providing an adorable environment to its guests, where not only they find peace in dwelling but also experience a the highest degree of dedication from the staff. And what more can one ask for? Hotel Alka is located right in the core of Varanasi, a place where even holiness is re-defined. Its evidently a must visit place for all in life. Varanasi (the ancient Kashi or the medieval Banaras) is one of the oldest cities of the world and is considered to be favourite, of even the almighty. Varanasi's prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually unrivalled. Mark Twain, the celebrated English author , who was enthralled by the legend and sanctity of Banaras, once wrote : "Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together." ... more less
