Taj is one of the best choice for me & my family & they always live upto our standards. But this time I found that though the staff was helpful but I didn't like the rooms as they smelt of damp. But again it's relative.

This hotel is best for its location, staff and services. It was my first visit with my family in Varanasi and when i reached here after long drive of 5 hrs, it was great sight (full of greenery) at the entrance of this hotel which made us relaxed by seeing these natural beauty.

I would highly recommend The Gateway for anyone going to Varanasi. It is clean, safe, comfortable and very well located.

The property is huge with lush green gardens and a pool. Alas, being on a official trip, I did not get enough time to enjoy all the facilities. I believe at the price, its a steal for a taj property.

This hotel lives upto the Taj brand name. Though the rooms are old,they are comfortable. Service in the restaurant GAD is good. The waiters and captain are very attentive.They make you feel very comfortable. The breakfast options are decent. Dinner buffet is wholesome. Being a piligrimage town they serve a lot of veg dishes. This hotel is highly recommended.
