My husband I chose this hotel based on tripadvisor reviews and it was a good decision. Why we liked this place? 1. Location - on Assi Ghat which was very clean, safe to walk around at night and with good eating options. The morning aarti also takes place on this Ghat. 2. Decor - Classy, very tastefully done up place... More

This hotel is quite a joy. It's set in a classic mansion in a great location on the Assi Ghat which is quite a happening spot along the Ganges. In some ways it resembles a home. It's not fancy and the rooms are pretty basic, but the artwork is awesome and each room is a work of art. The common... More

We paid 4000 RS a night for a beautifully designed room that was mediocre in every other sense. The hotel is designed impeccably with somewhat colonial imagery, tapestries and statues. Everything was very clean and tasteful. Room - designed beautifully and spacious, with lots of decorative furniture. There was no natural lighting, which was quite a shame. We couldn't get... More

Please note I am reviewing Hotel Ganges View, not Holy Ganges View. This is a beautiful hotel, very tastefully decorated with fine Indian art works. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and clean, also tastefully decorated with art works, and the bathroom has plenty of hot water. The dining room was also beautiful and served a delicious buffet.

Stayed here one night with my son (29) more of a backpackers style place. 102 degrees out and no amities. Four walls, three towels, two beds, one bar of soap. That's it. If that's for you, have at it. We left for something far better nearby.
