I enjoyed a really pleasant 2-night stay at Suryauday Haveli in March. I found Varanasi to be quite mental (though that is part of the appeal), and this hotel was a really welcome refuge from the chaos of the city. It isn't cheap, but Varanasi is low on boutique options, and this seems like the best option on the ghats...

Varanasi is the second oldest city in India. A pilgrimage city for Hindus where people want to travel to and rest in peace at the very end, the belief being that when one passes by the holy water of the River Ganges, the soul is released from the body and reaches heaven upon cremation. We stayed at Suryauday Haveli, a...

A great experience in a very charming Haveli, positioned right on the banks of the Ganges, so we could look out our windows and see a ghat right in front of us and the daily rituals of the locals and those pilgrims who had come to bathe in and pay homage to the Ganges. The haveli is a short walk...

My mother and I stayed in this hotel (long due review) during a very much expected trip to India and it just made our stay...

Perhaps the best hotel option in Varanasi! Located perfectly right on the ghats, the hotel is well located to explore the city. The rooms are comfortable and clean. However, the best part about the hotel is the staff! They are knowledgable and happy to help you plan your time in the city. They work tirelessly to make sure that you...

We stayed here for two days for our trip to Varanasi, Holi day and the following day. The position of the Havelli is right on the Ghats on the bank of the Ganges, I don't think you could get a better position. It does mean there is a small walk, 5-10 mins, to access it from the road but they...

Varanasi is all about life, and death, centred along the Ganges. Something going on all along the Ghats. Washing, bathing, ceremonies and cremations. The Suryauday is right there where everything all goes on. They even have their own boat to get you closer to the action without the jostle of the crowds on the Ghats. The position of the Haveli...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
