Ganpati was a great surprise. The hotel is very well located and the room was simple but clean, with air conditioning and hot water in the bathroom. The hotel staff was very nice and the restaurant was also very good (with a incredible view of the Ganga river). I highly recommend it.

Get room 12 or 13. Paid around $120 AUD/n. It has a huge balcony facing the mighty Ganga. Amazing. A room with a view like this back in Sydney would be a whopping price. Really worth that little splurge. Don't eat here though it was quite tragic. Staff are polite and they have boat services in the early AM or...

Lots of good things going for this place: great riverside location, lovely views from the the rooftop restaurant which happens to also have an extensive menu and great food, good service (pickup person at the chaotic train station showed up even though the train was nine hours late arriving!), lovely and tastefully decorated room with superb view of the Ganges...

We stayed 3 nights and the service was great and the staff were always responsive to our requests. We had a beautiful room with a corner balcony to enjoy the view of the river and the activities of the people on the walkway and the river. The dinning on the roof top had a nice atmosphere. The food was good...

We stayed at the guest house in early December. The staff were extremely helpful, very kind and gave excellent service. Our room was very comfortable and brightly furnished. The bathroom was small but had a great shower and it was very clean and plenty of hot water! The balcony was big enough to sit out on and gives wonderful views...

Great service at this hotel. The location is perfect for exploring the city, and the food at the hotel restaurant is so good we ate there all 3 nights of our stay. Rooms are on the small side but they are clean and beds are comfortable. I'd definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 5 nights in the 'Ganpati home' end of the hotel. It's down a little alleyway from the main building. The room itself was spacious, with a balcony area with a bathroom off that. The hotel is right on the Ganges with excellent views of the bustling waterway from the rooftop restaurant. The decor was very nice with...

We stayed at the Ganpati Guest House for a few days in Christmas and our choice was very good. They have one of the best locations in Varanasi, just at the Ganges riverside, between Dasaswamedh Ghat and Manikarnika Ghat. You are in the core where everything happens in the City of Light. People at Reception were very kind and helpful,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
