Filled with art and beautiful details combined with a great location makes this the best choice for a visit to Varanasi. Maybe not the best option for families though since the rooms are quite small and spread out. The hotel is located just above the ghats leading down to the river and you can reach the main ghats with either...

This hotel screams "budget". I thought the staff were downright disinterested, and there seemed to be little attempt to keep the entrance clean. The reception area is just a small desk, and seems unwelcoming. The location is nice, right on the Assi Ghat, although perhaps a bit unsafe at night. Our room was adequate. It is fun to meet the...

The location of this hotel is top, right at the river, with a lovely terrace allowing to relax after your sightseeing. We also liked the flowers all around the place, and the neat and nicely decorated rooms. All was perfectly clean also. I was surprised to find Varanasi (at least along the Ganges), a rather quiet and relaxed city, for...

We liked this hotel for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere but its jewel is the location and the terrace area which has great views over the Ganges and local life . Bit of a bugger if you drink or eat meat as this is a vegetarian hotel and all the hotels along the Ganges are not allowed to sell alcohol....

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was not my 1st choice to stay at in Varanasi. But I was pleasantly surprised and in retrospect quite pleased. I arrived on a delayed flight so it was at night when I was driven to the hotel and which took a very long time due to some of the worst traffic...

We spent a wonderful three days at this hotel. Not only is it in great location, on the river and direct access to the ghats, it is in a delightful setting. The hotel is an old style building with large verandahs full of blooming flowers, where you can sit outside and watch wedding parties go by with great fanfare. The...

Located steps from Assi ghat, at the less busy southern end of the ghats, this hotel offered convenience along with tranquility. With beautifully painted rooms and a flowering veranda the hotel is close to the action, but still peaceful. The food was delicious, and the stuffed tomatoes they served one night changed our lives!

This hotel is in a great location just on the edge of the main hustle and bustle of Varanasi on the Assi Ghat overlooking the Ganges. Our early arrival was met with a somewhat less than effusive welcome but we did have the option of choosing the room we wanted for our stay. Although not large it was characterful and...

An atmospheric and lovely hotel. Nice room, not overly big, but fine Very high bed: You would not want to fall out of it. Wonderful cuisine, the best we ate in India in a long time -- maybe ever! Only two negative points: (1) The room we had was on the terrace (Room 14), so we had to keep the...
