We stayed one week in Sahi River View Guesthouse, and we had a lovely stay. The breakfast is very good, the staff friendly, and the rooftop terrace is magnificent. Don't be scared off by the dodgy entrance - this is the best choice in Varanasi. Thank you so much for the stay!

Massive thank you from all of the writers in Wales who stayed with you two weeks ago. You made our stay in Varanasi something really quite special. Amazing food, wonderful people and we all agreed we felt as welcome as family! My favourite part of the whole trip, I would certainly recommend and definitely return one day. Diolch and dhanyaavad!

We felt completely safe and clean at sahi river, with absolutely no compromise. Perfect location near Assi Ghat. Prices include a simple breakfast (toast, banana, jam and Marmelade, chai) on the beautiful rooftop, on request a boat tour at down or sunset can be organized too.

The staff are nice. The location is good. The bed and bath were acceptable. We arrived early in the morning (having reserved and paid for the previous night) and the staff were quite willing to simply let us in to our room and deal with the paperwork later. (They wanted to go back to sleep too.) Being right by the...

I have stayed in this guesthouse many times. It is excellent as it has beautiful views of the Ganges and the staff are the most helpful you could have.....no exaggeration! The rooms are simple but comfortable and the food very good. Showers are hot. Assi Ghat is a relaxing area of Varanasi to stay in and Sahi River View is...

Taxi from airport dropped us around corner and finding the place was a bit difficult as it was up an alley, under part of the building, up some rather daunting stairs - but once inside it was fine - charming chap on desk - nice clean but basic room - beds and bedding great - bathroom clean - verrandah outside...

Sahi River View felt like a calm oasis in an exciting city. Clean and comfortable with an attentive staff. Several sitting areas provided good nooks to sit and read or relax after exploring city. Great location for walking (or boating) anywhere. Only drawback was morning yoga on the Ghat, amplified for the whole neighborhood to hear. I would recommend this...

This place is well-located right off Assi Ghat, but the otherwise basic accommodations are too expensive at 900 rupees per night. We could justify the cost somewhat upon staff assurances that breakfast was included -- unfortunately, not until the bill arrived did staff specify that "complimentary breakfast" refers to just plain toast and jam, not the bulk of the items...

A little expensive but very helpful staff, clean rooms, and fantastic location. Very close to Assi Ghat. Staff are very attentive. I'd recommend it. We had an enjoyable stay. The rooms had lots of windows which I like.

Located next to assi ghat, in a very quite place. The rooms are clean and the owners are very nice. Will assist at everything. They have rooms with Ac although it's not a must. The Ac is very loud so you can't sleep with it anyway.
