Varanasi is Indian culture in the raw so it was nice to escape to Hotel Ganges View beside Assi Ghat. We had a comfortable upstairs room with access to large public balcony with views over the Ganges. Lovely vegetarian dinners served as a buffet, all guests dining at the same time. You can easily get a boat in front on the Ghat.
There is so much going for this hotel, its location, the charming authentic decor, the lovely terraces filled with pot plants but a few things would make it so much better. Firstly cleanliness, our bathroom was never properly cleaned and the bed linen could have been better. There seemed to be a large number of male staff mostly hanging around not doing very much who could have been doing a better job of cleaning the rooms. Secondly some comfortable chairs to enjoy the pretty terraces from would have been welcome. The only outdoor chairs were uncomfortable bistro style chairs, nothing to relax on, bad news if you wanted to chill and read. The third thing would be more difficult to fix but our room opened into a lobby so no fresh air, only a window into an enclosed sitting area. Every time I opened the windows of said sitting area one of the many boys came and shut it again! Despite everything this is essentially a hotel of great charm and feels like a private house which it is really ( the owner lives on the premises), if only the linen was better and the rooms cleaner and there was some comfortable seating outside. The food was good and the dining staff very helpful.
Delightful, characterful, ideally located, warm/welcoming guest house, enriched by fine art, amazing flowers, great views and lovely outside nooks and crannies to watch and read. Would've been an easy straight 5 stars with hot water for showers.
Great old building with beautiful and fascinating rooms. Lots of indoor and outdoor public areas to sit and read or take in the view of Assi Ghat and the Ganges beyond. The staff were very warm and helpful. Our rooms were clean, large and charming.
At first we thought "Gange view" .. It might be like all other hotel where only few rooms have a view and we will have the worse view ever but no. When you open your door you have a nice view and the gange and nice little terrasses on every floor of the hotel. The hotel staff was nice. The breakfast is good and the dinner was amazing! The hotel is located next to the ghats and it takes about 30 mins to walk to the main market where they do the Arati celebration (prayer) that last 45 mins. Boat rides at sunrise are also available next to hotel.
