Good place to stay in the centre of Varanasi, on the edge of the Silk district. This is a family run Hotel will give you an experience of Varanasi Arts, Young Culture and spiritual History (ask for Sanjay's Tuk-Tuk tour of the temples or the river trips).

This hotel is very different from any conventional hotels I have stayed in. The décor and ambience are unique. The restaurant is fabulous and is probably the best cafe for youngsters in Varanasi. The rooms are bright and spacious. Centrally located.
