I fell in love with the family that run this place, from Bose and his wife who own it to the backbone taking care of you, it is certainly somewhere I recommend staying. They also have a roof top restaurant with some of the best food I've had in Varanasi, especially the veg burger... full power! Thank you for an...

I found Sandhya guest house run by Bose and his wife a very welcoming Hotel..especially as we arrived at a horrendous hour in the morning! Good sized clean rooms..Hot shower, and I mean hot! I needed one and I wasn't disappointed..when you climb to the top of the stairs you'll find a terrace overlooking the city with a view of...

This is my place to stay while in Varanasi, I always come back to them. The family that owns the Sandhya is very caring and the staff is always helpful. They can even book tickets (train, bus, plan) for you if you ask them to. Its located in Shivala in the southern part of Varanasi, so the noisy part of...

I very much enjoyed my stay at Sandhya. I stayed with two other lads in a room with a fan and wifi for 200 rupees each which I though was very reasonable. There are hot water showers, a very good rooftop resaraunt and the wifi works everywhere. The Japanese food is also very good as the owner's (Bose) wife is...

Sandhya Guest house was a very pleasant place to stay in Varanasi- it's only a few minute walk from the Ganges River. The owners are SO nice, from Japan and India/England, with adorable and fun kids. The restuarant on top has a great view and delicious food. The manager downstairs was ok- although he lied about the common story "the...

This guest house is located near the southern gahts which is a bit quieter than the northern gahts. I paid 400rs. for a small fan room which I thought was a fair price. Delicious and cheap roof top restaurant. Walking distance to every popular sight. Clean enough rooms. The owner is kind and can help you with any travel questions....

We booked a room from Agra (first time we'd pre booked a room on our trip). The price seemed decent and the location was quite good. When we arrived though we were greeted by a rude, nosey manager who would not let it be that we had not booked a train ticket for the next city. The room was quite...

This inn was a mixed package. The owner and his wife were friendly and helpful. The food in their restaurant was delicious, and there's a great view of the city from the roof. The room was not as clean or well maintained as I wanted. The airconditioner would give out and stop working periodically, and the bathroom needed a thorough...

We spent 4 nights in this hostel. Wich is run by it's owner and his family, they were really friendly and the staff as well. The roof top restaurant serves good food with fair prices.
