I don't like to post bad reviews but feel obliged. On the positive side rooms are quiet good and spacious however Tv is not working to well nor the fridge. It misses on the extra things that hotels supposedly should be offering of this standard. Breakfast is limited and served in a dirty room. No towels or water bottles in...

Nice place to stay as rooms are big and bathrooms are very big. Lobby and restaurants are good. People are friendly and helpful. Hotel do not provide free Wi Fi which was surprising. Centrally located.

I usually stay at Taj Ganges when in Varanasi. Well, it would be unfair to compare a local owned and operated hotel like Rivatas to a chain like Taj. Over all I feel it's a good option after Taj, Radisson and maybe Ramada. I would like to state that the upholstry of the main lobby and the restaurant badly needs...

This hotel is poorly constructed. I was able to hear all the noises of the bedroom besides me (the toilet, the shower, etc) and the car honking of the street felt worse than when you are driving. The materials of the walls are very thin and the windows are not soundproof. It is a shame because is a great hotel...

This was a nicely decorated hotel in Varanasi. The room was clean and comfortable and the staff was very friendly. It's a bit far from the tourist spots (you can't walk) but not too bad of a drive. The rooms were very well insulated (from noise) as well. There was a wedding next door and across the street... but we...

We stayed two nights at the Rivatas Hotel and can only give it an average rating. Location is quite a way from The Ganges, Old town and other attractions. Our room was large enough and adequate, but our travelling companions room smelled of mould or mothballs or something otherwise foul. Breakfast was OK, if you can stand the hordes of...

The rooms are pleasantly spacious with a separate dining and sitting area. The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable with decent WiFi for a reasonable charge. The workout room, near the pool was shared with the adjoining hotel, consisted of one treadmill, one elliptical, one rowing machine but none of these 3 pieces of equipment were operational. The breakfast buffet...
