We loved this hotel! It oozes charm and friendliness. It's ideally situated for a walk along the Ghats or a walk around local shops and back streets. The area around it was clean and felt very safe, The room we had was full of artefacts with stained glass window and looked out onto the beautiful terrace, which we were glad...

You can stand on the steps of the hotel and see the Ganges, what more can you ask for? The hotel is friendly, welcoming and safe. We were two females travelling alone and we felt 100% safe here. Our room was clean and furnished beautifully as was the rest of the hotel. We ate breakfasts and evening meals here during...

This is apparently an old palace made up of several floors and an assortment of rooms. It is located very close to the Ganges river with river views partially obstructed by trees and other buildings. It is an interesting building with patios on several levels. Our bedroom was situated high up in the building looking out towards the river and...

Had two nights this week at the Ganges View and really enjoyed the experience. Older style guest house with loads of character that provided an enjoyable stay. Staff were good, food was enjoyable, rooms were really comfortable. Would happily come again.

We stopped here while walking on the ghats and were greeted by the very friendly owner, Prince Shashank ji, who invited us to the flower terrace where we could see the Ganges on a beautiful evening. Then he had coffee sent for us, and it was literally the best I have ever had. Delicious and just the right temperature. It...

This hotel is an excellent option when visiting Varanasi. Staff is friendly, even if sometimes they look overwhelmed. The hotel is on the Assi Ghat, located well outside the very busy ones near main Ghat. The rooms are nice, all having a small veranda facing the Ganges. However the rooms are outdated and the bed are not so comfortable. The...

We absolutely loved this hotel. It is a heritage building that overlooks the Ganges. The room was lovely with comfortable beds. The bathroom was fine although the hand basin taps were 'interesting'. The food at lunchtime and dinner time was absolutely delicious. I recommend the Lime and Soda too, a good thirst quencher. The staff are delightful, very helpful and...

Obviously stars don't mean the same in India - or at least in Varanasi - as they do elsewhere. This hotel doesn't even come close to what we imagined based on its star rating and on its Lonely Planet review. I can't for the life of me fathom what the reviewer was thinking when he wrote so enthusiastically about this...
