We got the room with ac & no balcony. But there is no need for it, considering that their terrace is very nice, and has an excellent view of the ganges.
Everything was clean, comfortable beds & Good service.
Getting there is a little tricky at first since u have to walk, but if u ask around everyone will guide u and there are signs on the streets
Ps. their vegetarian restaurant is very good!
