IS from Varanasi, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 3/5 Service Quality: 4/5 Dining Quality: 4/5 Cleanliness: 3/5

On arrival from the railway station to the hotel the staff was very helpful (otherwise we would have lost in the endless narrow lanes old city of Benaras.)The approach to the hotel is through narrow and not kept clean lanes of old Benaras.One has to go on foot from the main road (approx half a km.). But the hotel staff was very helpful in carrying our luggage from the road head to the hotel. The location of the hotel is ideal for a pilgrimage visit to Varanasi since it is located just on the banks of holy river Ganga and all the important Ghats are very near to the hotel.The rooms were reasonable. However basic necessities such as bucket and mug in the bathroom, door foot mats were missing and provided on demand. House keeping left much to be desired as it was not regular. Fittings in the rooms were not standard that is in one room there was no TV but fridge was provided, whereas in another room no fridge but tv was provided (here no remote control was given hence the tv was useless.)Hence the room rates appeared to be on the higher side considering the quality of rooms. Food was good and reasonable. Service was good. The best part of the stay was provision of local guide by the hotel. The boy was very courteous, punctual and helpful. Overall the stay was good and fruitful. Recommended for stay if one is going on pilgrimage.

ABHINABA from Varanasi, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 3/5 Service Quality: 2/5 Dining Quality: 1/5 Cleanliness: 2/5

The only good thing for the Hotel was its location right on the Rana Mahal Ghat on Ganges itself,which you'll reach through small bye lanes from the Daswasamedh Ghat. All major temples and ghats are very much accessible through the bye-lanes of Varanasi. Its an old palace of Rana of Udaipur which he built for stay at Varanasi which has been converted though unfortunately the rooms are not palatial, quite small. The staff was friendly but service was painfully slow. The Front Desk guy gave some nice tips on sight seeing. It was a Non A/C Double Room There was neither a mirror nor a telephone in the room so you can imagine the rest. The cook had fled hence there was nothing available to eat other than tea. If one wants to have a frugal stay for a day in Varansi on the banks of Ganges then its OK.

Krishna from Varanasi, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 5/5 Dining Quality: 3/5 Cleanliness: 4/5

The location of thew room,esp room no.507 is fantastic.The view of the Ganga is unbeatble.The staff are polite and helpful.Acess is by traversing thru the gullies and you should like the feel of olld Kashinagri rather than the modern Banras.Acess to all facilities is there.Restaurant need improvement but they will go the extra mile to accomodate your request.Very safe.Crowd is excellent and no drugs are allowed.Excellent for asafe stay while experining the Ganga and the Ghats at close quarters.

Raju from Varanasi, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 5/5 Service Quality: 5/5 Dining Quality: 3/5 Cleanliness: 5/5

Great Place to stay right on the Banks of Ganga. Fortunately got the river view room as requested and it was just awesome. Clean rooms and great service. Dining options were OK.

Subhro from Varanasi, India recommends this hotel Posted:  Room Quality: 4/5 Service Quality: 5/5 Dining Quality: 5/5 Cleanliness: 5/5

We felt that we are in Home and did not feel any trouble during stay.The Room is specious and toilet is wide and clean with running Hot & Cold Water. Sufficient Toilet papers,soaps and towels and changed as and when necessary. Foods are of good quality and easily digestible and less spicy. The stuff members are really very co-operative and well behaved. They even allowed me to use their computers and internet for booking my Train Ticket. The only drawback is one cupboard is necessary in the Hotel room in order to keep clothings.The view of Varanasi from Hotel Balcony is very nice. So I would definitely recommend this Hotel if any one wants to visit Varanasi.

Average. Average.

by raki_j on January 3, 2018

Starting with the pros: - cannot beat the location. Very central and right by Ma Ganga. - excellent staff - hot water Cons: - the room itself was average. We paid for a maharaja river view room with balcony, which was the best room available, but were disappointed with the outcome. The room was like a shoe box, with no windows. There is a tiny door to duck through which takes you out to a small balcony which is totally enclosed in glass. This wasnt what we had had hoped for when booking a balcony room on the Ganges. The room was dark at all times. Also, the cleanliness was not up to scratch. The linen and towels were old and dirty and in desperate need of replacing. This was the most expensive room on our entire month long trip to india and unfortunately the worst in terms of comfort and cleanliness. I find it hard to recommend this place, although its not my first visit to Varanasi and I know that other places here are in similar condition.

Interesting hotel! Interesting hotel!

by Robert W on January 2, 2018

If you want old fashioned India, this is the place for you. I booked a heritage room so that I was overlooking the Ganges. The room itself probably should have had a preservation order slapped on it but to be fair it was reasonably comfortable. The shower or spray(!) did have hot water which is a plus. The building is interesting and complex but eventually one finds the way round. To get to it, you have a 10 minute walk down narrow alleyways whilst your luggage is carried by a bearer. If you have trouble walking then this is not the place for you as the steps down to the Ghats are VERY steep. The Sunrise restaurant not only serves beer but also very edible food. Of course, Varanasi is unmissable.

Location,view and service of this hotel is good.Only negative side is you have to walk through narrow dirty lanes for about 10 minutes to reach this hotel from main road.All the staffs are very helpful

Low cost with high service Low cost with high service

by kingsukchatterjee on December 17, 2017

Booked for my parents in the month of December, took the backside rooms expecting cold in the Ganges side rooms. And the backside rooms turns out to be as good as other rooms , so you are not missing anything. Pros: free breakfast, prime location right above the ghat, very good service (gave free room service to my parents considering their age) , in-house restaurant, boiled food available for foreigners, trip and guide booking right inside with absolutely no pressure to buy. Cons: location makes you walk about half a mile from the nearest transport(rickshaw, auto, taxi whatever) . This could be an issue for older pple . But if you are visiting Benares (Varanasi) then shouldnt avoid walking, walking gives you real feel of the old city, also hotel staffs will cary your luggage to and fro which is a great help
