From the moment we walked into the hotel we were relaxed by the smell of vetiver or lemongrass scent. Just this little detail made me thankful to be at the hotel. Varanasi is a bustling city with lots of unpleasant smells. Brijrama is in the heart of the action. You can walk to the sunset aarti easily.

We arranged pick up from the airport through the hotel. When we arrived we could not find the driver. We called the hotel and they said he was there. We had to walk around until we finally saw him. The Brijrama sign he was holding had our name on it but it was hardly visible as was the Brijrama name. Having found our driver, we proceeded on about a 40 min. drive to where the boat would pick us up. The boat was very comfortable and it was from here where we got our first glimpse of Benares.

The staff at the hotel is very friendly and attentive. There are 2 restaurants to choose from. They have Indian and western options. The fancy restaurant has molecular cuisine. No alcohol is served in the hotel. In the evening there is a cultural dance show with live music.

Our room was clean. Bed was comfortable. Since it was chilly, they put hot water bottles in our bed at night. We had complimentary water, cookies, almonds, pistachios, chocolates and soft drinks. They also gave us a complimentary 15 min foot massage.

FYI: all hotels and restaurants on the riverbed are vegetarian and serve no alcohol.

After participating in the Ganga Arthi on the banks of Dashaswamedh Ghats, we went to Brijrama Palace for dinner. This place is adjacent to this ghat. Beautiful ambience, good food and polite staff. Remember to make a reservation. Most of the time it gets filled up. We also got lucky to see a kathak performance, which was organized for an international tourist group.

A perfect place for visiting Varanasi; the location, property, food and most importantly the staff, everything made out stay truly memorable. We were very well looked after the moment we stepped into Brijrama's office at the Varanasi airport on our arrival. Breakfast was the treat, staff recommended and served local dishes to try. Highly recommend it.

Varanasi, the spiritual capital of India on the banks of the river mother Ganga has been the ultimate destination of every ruler of India from times immemorial, to leave a landmark of their own. The Brijrama Palace is one such. An expensive hotel to stay and restaurants to dine and an experience to cherish.

Varanasi is a wild city and this is the perfect home base for anyone that comes here. It is located right in the center of everything and you can just on the balcony and watch the Ganges river all day/night long. This is one of the most gorgeous buildings I have also ever been inside of! The staff were all very helpful and professional. I couldn’t imagine returning to to Varanasi and not staying at the Brijrama Palace. This place is a must!
