We stayed in Varanasi for 3 nights in this hotel. Nothing to say about the staffs, very kind, offering services you need, and they even provided us an early breakfast because we were leaving the city early in the morning. About the hotel itself, it doesn't worth the price I think. Although it is clean, the day we arrived, a...

Perfectly located a stones throw from the ghats and with amazing views of beautiful ma Ganga. All the staff were polite and helpful. The rooms were lovely and had very efficient air con, which was so welcome after a day in 44 degrees! We would definitely recommend eating in the hotel, the kitchen was very clean and the food absolutely...

Ideally situated between Assi Ghat and Dashashwamedh Ghat. Transport to and from the airport was arranged without any problems by staff. Card was accepted for accommodation cost but taxis and extras had to be paid in cash. I had a great room on the top floor (not roof) with a huge balcony overlooking the Ganges. It was a wonderful place...

My friend and I stayed at the hotel in March 2017, and we had an amazing time. We were greeted by staff from the train station and although the train was hours late we were greeted with a smile and taken to the hotel through the many narrow alley ways. On arrival we had a wonderful cold drink, a meal...

We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the Shiva Ganges View Guest House. The owner, Mr. Tandonji greeted us when we arrived and welcomed us to his home. The refrigerator in our room was filled with cold soft drinks and water. Our room had a beautiful view of the Ganges. The Shiva Ganges guesthouse is very clean and we...

사장님과 직원분들의 너무나도 따듯한 배려에 기억에 남을 바라나시 여행을 하고 갑니다. Your happiness is the most important. 라고 이야기 해주시는 사장님과 아침/저녁으로 환하게 인사해주시는 스텝분들 때문에 따듯한 배려를 선물 받고 갑니다. 강가강이 훤히 보이는 Roof top 에서의 아침식사와 루프탑룸에서의 편안함은 저희 부부에게는 잊지 못할 추억이 될 것 같습니다. 바라나시에서의 좋은 추억을 만들 수 있게 해주신 호텔에 감사합니다 ^^

Great location, good spacious rooms with private balcony and well-priced. There is a rooftop terrace where dinner or drink and snacks can be had. Food is satisfying if not exceptional. This should be a hotel that I want to say we would visit again but I wouldn't. The reason is simply the owner. On check-in he was dismissive on our...

We arrived in Varanasi after the train journey from hell - 27 hours travelling - and we were still met at the station, although Shyam, sent to meet us, had waited all night for our late train that finally limped in 5 hours behind the (several times revised) scheduled time. The great virtue of the Shiva Ganges View is the...

First booking contact with Tanden by mail shiva_gangesview@yahoo.com gained an immediate polite response. A taxi was waiting for us for 2hrs due to delayed landing at night , transporting us to the hotel . We were warmly welcomed by the owner at 11pm with a big smile and a ginger lemon tea to our room. The room itself is well...

“Rooms with windows to the street can be noisy. The street seems to be a gathering place after dark. 1st floor is cheapest.”
