We are a young couple and stayed at Ganpati for 6 nights (as a side note, 3 nights in Varanasi is plenty). My partner and I loved Ganpati. Peaceful, clean and lots of different areas to hang out and relax in- a sanctuary from the often chaotic nature of the city. This guesthouse overlooks the ghats and is close to...

This is a guest house and not a luxury hotel. That said it offers almost anything an upscale hotel offers including free WiFi in a modest setting. Its views are anything but modest as it overlooks the Ganges river and is situated at the very edge of a ghat. The rooftop restaurant has excellent service. We only had breakfast but...

I recently stayed there with my family for 4 nights and overall it was a pleasant stay. The property is on the ghat so very accessible to Ganga. It's very well maintained and feels like a boutique/niche property (lots of photo opps). The only reason I am rating this "very good" and not "excellent" is because the staff is selectively...

Clean rooms. Close to Ganges. Close to temple and in the heart of old city. However, not accessible by taxi, so be prepared to walk 15 min in narrow gullies to reach the hotel. You need a guide to help you find the place if you are a first timer. Go for a higher category room for a comfortable stay....

Had a good breakfast here. Pancackes and toast are tasty and good, and so are the juices. Would recommend going by the restaurant. Location is great, the place looks good, and the roof top view is stunning.

Enjoyed my 1st time at the Ganpati Guesthouse and it sure won't be my last. Was pleasantly surprised by the little things that made my stay enjoyable (favorite incense, net covered windows, rustic decor of rooms, quick laundry service, etc.) Friendly staff and management; helpful and prompt. Look forward to revisit.

I had a great stay at Ganpati Guest House and would recommend this place to everyone staying in Varanasi. Perfect location next to the Ganges, friendly staff and nice clean rooms. There is a great rooftop with restaurant overlooking the river and the little courtyard is just wonderful. Look no further, this is where you want to stay.

Ganpati Guest House is perhaps the best choice for the Varanasi experience. It is ideally located close to the old city, right on the Ganges bank, with a spectacular onto the main ghats.

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
