    The hotel ALKA is on prime spot for watching the activities on the river. The staff are welcoming and helpful. They provided us with all we needed. I would recommend ALKA to anyone wanting to stay in old Varanasi.

    Great location and friendly staff. If you want to get everything in one place, come and stay here. Nagyszerű elhelyezkedés és barátságos személyzet. Itt megkapsz mindent egy helyen, és pont a legizgalmasabb helyen töltheted az éjszakát. Megéri az árát.
