This place has a lot going for it, with lovely rooms, great communal dining (when we were there we were joined one night by an American SE Asian academic and another by the editor of a leading Mumbai newspaper) delicious vegetarian food and nice places to sit and relax. It feels more like a smart home not a hotel -...

Good location, at the river with a nice terrace to rest and digest impressions from Varanasi. The hotel has a good atmosphere with colonial style furniture, nice dining room, and good rooms. Rooms at the upper levels is preferred, and they have a nice "lounge" outside so you can sit and overlook the river and city. Dining at the hotel...

Filled with art and beautiful details combined with a great location makes this the best choice for a visit to Varanasi. Maybe not the best option for families though since the rooms are quite small and spread out. The hotel is located just above the ghats leading down to the river and you can reach the main ghats with either...

This hotel screams "budget". I thought the staff were downright disinterested, and there seemed to be little attempt to keep the entrance clean. The reception area is just a small desk, and seems unwelcoming. The location is nice, right on the Assi Ghat, although perhaps a bit unsafe at night. Our room was adequate. It is fun to meet the...

The location of this hotel is top, right at the river, with a lovely terrace allowing to relax after your sightseeing. We also liked the flowers all around the place, and the neat and nicely decorated rooms. All was perfectly clean also. I was surprised to find Varanasi (at least along the Ganges), a rather quiet and relaxed city, for...

We liked this hotel for its relaxed and friendly atmosphere but its jewel is the location and the terrace area which has great views over the Ganges and local life . Bit of a bugger if you drink or eat meat as this is a vegetarian hotel and all the hotels along the Ganges are not allowed to sell alcohol....

I wasn't sure what to expect since this was not my 1st choice to stay at in Varanasi. But I was pleasantly surprised and in retrospect quite pleased. I arrived on a delayed flight so it was at night when I was driven to the hotel and which took a very long time due to some of the worst traffic...

We spent a wonderful three days at this hotel. Not only is it in great location, on the river and direct access to the ghats, it is in a delightful setting. The hotel is an old style building with large verandahs full of blooming flowers, where you can sit outside and watch wedding parties go by with great fanfare. The...

Located steps from Assi ghat, at the less busy southern end of the ghats, this hotel offered convenience along with tranquility. With beautifully painted rooms and a flowering veranda the hotel is close to the action, but still peaceful. The food was delicious, and the stuffed tomatoes they served one night changed our lives!
