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.

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.

Really good location and friendly staff, however for those looking for luxury you eill be disappointed basic clean accommodation definitely no frills. Restaurant offered great views of the Ganges and the Varanasi riverside scenery good was good basic Indian fare. Don't forget to bring your own soap.

Very homely and middle class Very homely and middle class

by Dyuti S on February 1, 2017

Food was quite nice, rooms were decent,the lights were on the lower end, the cleanliness was fair enough with frequent visits by the monkeys who left no chance to pee in the surroundings. Location was good,facing the river,but one has to walk for some 15-20 mins away from the main road to get back here. And the ally is quite narrow with frequent bumps by the famous banarasi oxens

Our Home in Varanasi Our Home in Varanasi

This was our second visit. And we were not disappointed. We were highly impressed the first time, and this time that impression remained exactly the same. In fact, we saw some improvements. We had a different room, another King Room, in a different section. This one was a round room under one of the domes that you can see on the Rana Mahal Ghat and you can literally see the Ganga lying on your bed. This room afforded us 180 degree views and you could see a grand panorama, and magnificent views of the sunrise. The staff were equally friendly and helpful, always courteous and did not object to our whims. The wifi worked better this time and the restaurant - which has been given a makeover - was much more efficient. I am quite sure I will visit Varansi again just to meet the friends I have made here.

Pros and cons... Pros and cons...

by Uncle_Gareth on January 23, 2017

Having spent four nights here recently, I'd summarise its pros and cons as follows: Pros - Right on the Ganges. The rooms at the front had an unrivalled view. Right in the heart of the old city. Full of goings-on. Staff were generally helpful, and our airport pick-up and drop-off were pretty reasonable. Wifi worked well. The restaurant was not bad, although not cheap. Cons - Right on the Ganges. At night, the barking dogs kept us awake. Right in the heart of the old city. Loads of cow dung and hardly any tourist facilities like restaurants. Staff didn't reply to emails and texts, so I had to ring them to arrange our pick-up, and they clearly think that tourists can only get around by taxi. Wifi wasn't accessible in the rooms at the front. The restaurant and terrace didn't really have much of a view. In summary, if you want to stay right on the ghats, and you are a sound sleeper, then this is a fairly good choice.
