There are 3 things one would expect to find in an excellent hotel. Good bed, good shower and very good, strong breakfast coffee. In Rivatas water pressure in the shower was very poor and coffee was terrible.

Had a wonderful stay at Rivatas. Nice room neat and clean. Spacious rooms with all basic amenities. Service is a bit slow, but staff were courteous and friendly. Lighting in the room is also bit low. Breakfast spread is decent. Restaurant service is also slow. Thank you team Rivatas for making our stay comfortable.

I visited Varanasi on July 2016 with my foreign friends. I loved the place. Awesome place to stay. People are gentle and humble. Great ambiance. Good food but paid WiFi which was a minus. Rest everything was great!!
