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...

We always try to stay in havelis or other heritage properties when travelling in India and we weren't disappointed with Sauryaday Haveli. It's in a great position right on the ghats so easy to walk out along the ghats or into the old town. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the food was good and plenty of it, and...

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...

Marvellous! Positive: very attentive staff, always willing to please. A bit short-handed at breakfast and they ran out of bananas BUT sent out for some from nearby stalls. How good is that?? Fantastic view of Ganges - of course you must ask for that. Strange low horizontal oblong windows but you can lie in bed and see the Ganges! Safe,...

The place to stay in Varanasi - but be prepared for lengthy uneven walk from road if you have limited mobility. Worth it though because you are right on the Ganges. See people bathing, washing clothes. Scrubbing water buffalo.

We had a wonderful stay in this beautiful Haveli in Varanasi. Location is excellent, at the banks of river Ganga and at the heart of the holy city Varanasi. Take the chance and step outside before sunrise, you will see ceremonies in small and bigger temples around. Staff was so nice and friendly. When I had a cold, they prepared...

Excellent rooms, spaecially if you can get a full view of the river otherwise be sure to use the roof space. Food was unusual in many ways specially taste. The Maharaja plate is very special.. The only problem is access but this is compensated by the steps leading directly to the wharf.

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
