Monu's family guesthouse is in a great location in the market. Him and his family are very helpful and friendly. Worthwile getting a guide to help find your way around the market - we spent time with Ravi - his personal knowledge of the town was great.

Staying at Monu's place is like staying with a friend - you feel comfortable, relaxed and happy to be home!

I stayed a 4 nights. Good located and not to hard to find. The rooms on the last floor are the better ones. Nice family atmosphere. I had a good time there. Wifi is available and coping with the local struggles ( power failures, numerous festivities... ) this was my base camp.

Visiting Varanasi was an amazing experience thanks to our guide Monu. He is a very friendly, enthusiastic person, who really loves his city and made us fall in love with it too. We got to know the city through his wonderful stories. He knew a lot and comes across as a very intelligent and symphatic person. Monu is born and...

Very clean and very nice place. The rooms are big and there are only four rooms. Guests are coming from all over the world. Owner is very friendly and helpful if you have questions or need things to organize. Unfortunately, the shower wasn't really working, the jet of water was very low. That is why I only give 4 points...

Monu has a small and cosy place with only few rooms. Great location, only 4-5 mins away from the river. We booked a double room with fan and the bed was huge! Since we went during winter season, no need for AC. It was already cold and the thick blanket helps. The bathroom was clean and got hot shower. Monu...

Monu has a small guesthouse with four rooms on a typical narrow Varanasi alley . The location is perfect: right beside burning ghat and main ghat. This is a guesthouse and not a hotel and the price is accordingly cheap. Do not expect a lobby, a bell boy and a receptionist. Here you can enjoy living in the middle of...
