Our group spent five days in Varanasi in January. This was a great home base for adventures on the ghats and around the city. Staff were super helpful and attended to all of our needs. Breakfast on the rooftop terrace was a wonderful way to start each day. The overall highlight was tour guide Vivek, who works with this hotel....

The best thing about this hotel is that it is located right on the river. It has a terrace up stairs that provides great views of the Ganges. We arrived during a time when the demonitisation was a problem and we had no cash, only cards. I phoned the owner beforehand ans was reassured it would be ok to get...

We family of 4 stayed in last week of January 2017. Had chosen this place after reading fine reviews on Trip Advisor. But I was little wary since all reviews were of foreigners and such establishments can make local tourists feel unwelcome. However happy to say that nothing of sort happened. We were treated very well by Tandonjee and his...

Shiva Ganges View was a wonderful home during our 5 nights in Varanasi. The guesthouse is located on the river midway between the collection of ghats. This makes it a wonderful location to enjoy much of the activity you visit the city for. This also puts you on the primary route for people moving along the river, making it convenient...

This place was beautiful, and it's location was absolutely spot on. We travelled India mostly low budget but decided to splurge a bit here and it was well worth it. Very helpful staff. Really beautiful rooftop views, just beautiful. The balcony was great. Only recommendation would be to maybe not do the yoga supplied by the guesthouse, just a bit...

I felt welcome and right at home. Room was palatial and clean. Had a side room with view of Ganges. Spent a lot time on the upstairs balcony. Food was cooked by Pappu and always very tasty and spicy to my needs. A family run establishment who can organise drivers, boats and tours. Yes you will pay a little more...

Loved Shiva Ganges View and definately will be back, hope soon! The location is perfect, the room was clean, beautiful and super romantic, the view is wonderful, the staff and service are excellent and the food glorious. Very nice rooftop. I loved that we were received with a city map and explanations.

The family run hotel offers good service, large light bedrooms, nice bathroom facilities and a good quieter spot along the river. THe owner is very kind and there for all demands, airport pick ups, tours etc and his mother oversees the efficiency of the running of the hotel. Make sure you get a river fronted room as high as possible.

Owner and staff are really friendly but we stayed in a room on ground Floor and aparently anyone can just burn a log next to your window and have a great chat for Horus. Since the ventilation holes in the rooms are always open it get's really uncomfortable to breath in your room. Choose a room on the upper floor...
