I visited Banaras/Varanasi after 14 years. The purpose was to explore 5 ancient Hindu Sites who lost their heritage from 1193 CE onwards due to invasion from the Central Asia and Middle East. I have wrote separately (Posted all photos taken during visit) on TripAdvisor under existing title...Bindu Madhav Mandir....there is grand Masjid built on the original spot during regime of Mughal Emperor Aurangzeb. The room with allied facilities observed to be excellent. The front-desk arranged for an auto-rickshaw and Muslim Guide by the name Aftab Ahmed Ansari who was familiar with these 5 ancient sites and navigating in crowded narrow lanes of the City. My trip is memorable!!!
the hotel is a part of a palace built by a king from Nepal. It has a heritage touch in it and is very well maintained. The rooms are quite good if not great but th services make up for it. Do try the food which is very good.
A lovely heritage hotel in former royal palace with pretty gardens and pool. A peaceful place to stay away from the busy-ness of central Varanasi. Our room with balcony overlooked the garden and all the flowers on display and was spacious, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast buffet had a good range of items and eggs cooked to order. In the evening we ate at the restaurant which had a wide ranging menu. The food was excellent and good value too. The staff were helpful and courteous.
We were recommended this restaurant by our guide, is was situated right next door to our Hotel which made it easy to find. The property is very old style with a large lawn in the middle, the restaurant overlooks this and the food and service were outstanding
The streets in the centre of Varanasi are so crazy busy it is well worth staying out of the centre a little bit. As soon as you step through the gates of this hotel it is so tranquil.
The grounds are beautiful with pretty flowers and all very clean. We ate in the restaurant for both breakfast and evening meal. Lots of choice and all very tasty. The staff are extremely attentive and full of smiles. A special mention to Krishna.
We had a luxury room with balcony which had a king size bed and an extra bed for our son. It was a lovely room, very clean with a pretty view onto the gardens.
At only 200 rupees to the centre in a tuk tuk it is definitely worth coming to this hotel for relaxing down time after your sightseeing
