Great food here...as if in an indian household. The chef here is very talented with traditional north indian dishes. While in Varanasi we had almost every meal here and we were always pleased. And great room service so we could eat in our room and enjoy the view.

We chose this hotel based on numerous positive reviews on Trip Advisor and realized that relying on Trip Advisor can be misleading. The whole hotel building and rooms I found particularly creepy, with all numerous of small plastic dolls and other old plastic decorations - very uncozy! The owner tried to appear welcoming but all he cared about is to...

This hotel is a bit of a mixed bag. On the upside, the staff are excellent and very attentive. There was one member in particular who went out of his way to help us. He went out on several occasions to get toiletries and medicine. I was very impressed with his thoughtfulness and dedication. The hotel itself is ok, if...

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...

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...
