A good choice right on the ghats A good choice right on the ghats

by Gnurr on February 11, 2017

Most of the rooms at Scindhia Guest House look out over the Ganges, and it is close to the main burning ghat. The rooms are clean, with TV, AC and fridge, hot water in the bathroom and a balcony, at a price. There are also simpler rooms. Kush, the manager, and Asish, his assistant, are both very helpful, which takes some of the stress out of travelling in India. On the way in, the cab dropped us off and porters took us through the winding streets to the hotel (15 mins walk), and on the way out we asked them to take us to a taxi at Raj Ghat by boat (30 mins of manly rowing) - a nice conclusion to the stay. The food at the hotel is good too, if you are too tired to venture further afield. Definitely recommended.

Great stay, excellent service! Great stay, excellent service!

There are lots of hotels claiming to have ghat view but most only have partial view or only one or two rooms. Scindhia has several rooms right on the ghat with a fantastic view. The room is a decent size, super clean and while not luxurious, perfectly adequate (fridge, ac, warm water, tv, clean linens, etc.). The restaurant is somewhat barren but the food makes up for it. Some of the tastiest food we had here. However, what makes Scindhia stand out is the management of Kush. We arrived on the last flight to Varanasi and by the time we came out of the airport, all taxis were gone. As if on call, Kush called to ask if we had arrived and needed a taxi. Within 5 minutes a taxi arrived. When we arrived in town, two porters were waiting to carry the luggage to the hotel (the hotel can only be reached by foot for about 10 minutes). Despite our late arrival, Kush arranged for a delicious meal. All through our stay Kush was very polite, very helpful, never pushy and always ready to have a chat about something interesting. All in all this hotel, and especially the service, exceeded our expectations. Many 5 stars could learn something of the level of service provided here.

Kush is a lovely host and does everything to help. We had booked three nights here which turned in to two as we had to leave early, which we advised upon checkin but unfortunately we had no offers of getting the third night refunded which was disappointing. We organised a boat trip for two of us which cost 1000 rupees which I thought was expensive at first but it was quite a long way to row boat and I later read that is the government recommended rate. We had dinner in our room from the schindia restaurant and it was pretty good. We found the hotel pretty well using google maps, but then once you see the building it is still hard to find the way to the front door. We just had to ask someone as you need to go up some very obscure steps to get to the front door. You can only find this entrance by approaching from the water. I would recommend that the guesthouse send to their guests some very specific details on finding the front door as I imagine many people can't. The room was very basic, which was fine, it was also very cold at night unfortunately despite getting extra rugs. The views from the balcony were very good. I think the price however was not good value given how basic the hotel is, even though the view and location is very good. Also half the hotel has been demolished giving the building a very decrepit look that does not fill you with structural confidence given the location on the steep banks of the Ganges.

The most perfect guesthouse!! The most perfect guesthouse!!

The management under Kush where lovely. So helpful and friendly! thank you! Clean rooms and the balcony overlooking Ganges- perfect location! You eat breakfast and other meals with the view over Ganges. Really good food! I really recommend this place!

It was our first trip to Varanasi. We found the manager Kush and the staff very helpful with ready suggestions about what to visit and where to eat. They do not push any advise on you, just suggest. The room we occupied was rather small and congested but i'd give anything for the unobstructed view of the river that we had! The negative is that the access to the guest house is by foot only through a maze of narrow streets. One morning we did not want the hotel fare but we could not go out to eat due to a heavy downpour. Kush made arrangements to get us typical Benaras breakfast and had it sent to our room.
