If you are coming to expirience banaras,then things of being at luxury is out of the list. You can get help from hotel guys. Being near to the burning ghats,make you expirience the Place more better.

This was not a good place to stay longer than max one night. We spent 5 nights. The hotel is right next to the burning ghat. That might be interesting for couple of days but if you're staying longer it might be a little bit too much. Smelling burning bodies 24/7 is not than much fun. But that wasn't even...

No rooms anywhere when arrived in Varanasi late at night. I remembered that the Sonmony had been recommended to us by another traveler so we made our way to Harischandra Ghat, one of the burning ghats. We checked into room #22 and the night watchman was kind enough to give us a couple of towels and sheets. Not the cleanest...

Hey all, Was here in Jan of 2011. Picked this hotel out from a hostel site and a video someone took of their boat tour on the Ganges as they passed by the waterfront hotel. This hotel is relatively new by the oldest living city in the world's standards (1980's i think). It is the best location, hirishchandra ghat is...

I had a bad experience here, we didnt get any sheets and the manager really didn't care. I felt ripped off despite the room only being 800 rp per night. It did have good views over the oldest(not biggest) burning ghat. The bathroom was also awful, the sink wasn't plumbed in. And no water came out of the shower. I...

I wouldn't recommend this place.  For starters, they expect payment up front for the duration of your stay which is a bit dubious. Secondly they wanted to take a copy of our passports which we didn't agree to.  Worst of all there were no sheets to sleep under - with the excuse that the laundry hadn't come back. A hotel...

I stayed here because it was cheap for aircon and having a balcony with Ganges view. I did not realise how close to the crematoriums it was. If you stay here, make sure that you don't get room 37, or any rooms along that wall as that is the side alley of crematoriums outside. This ghat is a 24/7 crematorium...
