I am a huge fan of the Taj hotels.. The Taj Mahal in Delhi on Mansingh road is awesome! This taj hotel- not so much.. When we arrived in Varanasi there were several extenuating circumstances that hindered our arrival to their hotel.. No car was sent to meet us at the airport... And Prime minister Modi and the Japanese Prime...

Having stayed in another Gateway Hotel (in Agra), this came out very much second best. The hotel is set in huge and attractive grounds. The welcome was warm, including a bead necklace and a fruit drink. Bedroom was comfortable but let down by the well worm fitments in the bathroom. There are two lifts, but during our stay only one...

This is in between a budget property and a luxury property. It is managed by the Taj group, rooms are comfortable and equipped with all facilities. The ambience of the hotel is wonderful - it is a remodeled palatial property. The service is a bit slow but the food is mainly vegetarian and very good.

It was a pleasant stay. Try the Banarasi Thali to get the desi flavour :) It is far from the central attractions of Varanasi - Vishwanath temple and the the Ghats of Ganga. [1hr drive during peak hours and around 30 mins otherwise ].

If you have to stay in Varanasi (a truly interesting, amazing and filthy city), then make sure you have an escape at the end of the day. I chose this hotel after staying on the Ghats for 5 days. The Taj is the only place for me from now on. There is just something wonderful about coming "home" to a...
