Ganpati is a wonderful place, very well situated near one of the most important ghats. I stayed in a room with a balcony from where every-evening ceremony could be seen in the distance. It is centrally located and very difficult to find in the maze of streets and alleys but I have booked pick up from the railway station and...

Varanasi is a beautiful place. We Stayed 4 nights in Ganapati Guest House and I feel it is the good location to stay. The hotel is safe and secured , Ganga and Kashi Biswanath temple is very near. All the staff were very cordial and helpful.

When booking a trip to Varanasi, I was concerned about two things: location and hygiene. Ganpati was successful in both regards. It is located directly on the Ganga and is just a short walk to one of the most active burning ghats. The staff was friendly and helpful in providing directions and advice and the rooms themselves were very, very...

This was my 4th visit to this most sacred and fascinating place, and on this visit I was accompanied by my 2 year old daughter and my stepson- who was gifted in celebrating his 25th at Ganpati- an event he is unlikely to ever forget!!

Our stay was OK - it provided the bare necessities - it is a guesthouse after all. The place is hard to find especially if you, like us, prefer to roam the streets, it can be quite difficult to find your way back. Our strategy was to just head towards the river and walk along the banks to find it....

We had a great time at this lovely multi level hotel. The staff were wonderful particularily Mr. Nagendra Dubey (at the front desk) who provided us with extensive information on all aspects of Varanasi, travel planning and the Hindu traditions. He is truly a fountain of information and enthusiasm. The food was very good and the view from the roof...

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
