“My holy trip to Varanasi”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Hotel Ideal tower is ideally located at Varanasi away from the busy streets. Very courteous staff in the reception, rooms are very clean and the food awesome. I will definitely recommend this hotel for others and its services are more then a five star hotel.

Our first room at the ideal towers was musty and felt damp, not so good. Fortunately, the hotel moved us to a better room and things improved. Our room was well appointed with modern furniture, a flat screen tv and a view of the pipe running up the wall outside our window. The staff went over board to make our stay pleasant although some of the wait staff barely understood our English. The showers had ample hot water, the room clean and the pool was unheated. Unheated swimming pools are very typical for an Indian Hotel. If you were interested, there is a small shopping center just a short walk to the right of the hotel, up the hill, with a Pizza Hut and McDonalds. Just remember, you're in India and McD does not serve beef. We ate at the Pizza Hut and the food was delicious. Although this hotel worked out just fine, it would not be my first choice if we come this way again. It's not that it was bad, it just wasn't that interesting for a revisit.

Some hospitality business owners believe that a good property is sufficient to keep customers happy. This hotel owners also have similar thoughts. The property is in a great location next to some good world leading brands in the industry. has a great foyer and large rooms but all this is lost in the mind of the guest like me because of bad service. The problem is the people they have employed, they believe that customers will take care of themselves. I was surprised that on entering the breakfast room the first statement is not a "greeting" but "what is your room number", until asked for water was not even served to the people on the table. In the evening the service guys in the restaurant vanish and the customer has to fend for them selves. I am sure this could be rectified if they want too. This is Ok for tourists who come to see the temples and that is why people don't believe in service I suppose. My earlier visit to this city was different when I stayed at TAJ Gateway the service was great

I stayed in this hotel to attend a conference on 16th August. The arrangements of the conference, the quality of food was excellent. The only issue was the electronic safe lock which is not user friendly. The room was nice, big & very comfortable. The buffet breakfast & live egg / pasta trolley were the highlights. Thankyou Mr Manager.

This is a comfortable average hotel. The location is OK - with a small shopping mall up the road, and cash machines at the bottom of the road. The area seemed safe enough. The staff were friendly enough and the breakfast was good.

It is quite a pretty place, located at abbout 30 minute taxi ride from Ganges, where you can see ritual bathing and cremations taking place, if you are in for this kind of sightseeing.
The staff were friendly and helpful and efficient - nothing to complain about in this department.
I liked my room a lot - it was spacious and clean, the lobby was also very comfortable.

One of the things I liked most was the absolute lack of any type of insects, which I appreciated with all my heart.

There are shops around and there are many opportunities for hiring a taxi and going where your heart takes you.

I can recommend this place with clear conscience. But if you are in for an unforgettable experience IN the hotel, that's not gonna happen.
