I had visited varanasi for the first time and was having a very good expectations about this hotel, since it is nearer to the famous ghats. It was bad experience from the room service and food point of view. Room was decent but i dint liked the service. Whenever i called up, there was always a late response.

the reception staff are not very friendly and did not like when we asked to change our room to a more quiet one. When finally agreed to change the room instead of a double bed we got two single beds (they said they do not have any other rooms available). No problem, we just pushed the beds together. The loby...

This hotel gives the least of Services to its Guests. The staff is very rude and misbehaving. The rates are also very high. Food is okay but look in Restaurant is very unpleasant. The FnB Manager is the most unruly person that I have ever met. Totally unrecommended.

We stayed here for two nights. Greeted as we entered hotel staff extremely nice. Food in restutant was good. Wifi is only in the lobby. From about 2 til 4 there was a lot of noise above us so difficult to take a nap. I thinkable they were moving tables to prepare for a party.

As a lot of people have suggested, the entry and foyer of the Hotel are quite impressive and the rooms are a bit of a let down, but it is what it is, a 3 Star Hotel charging 3 Star prices. We experienced much worse in other areas throughout India. Beds were a bit hard (for my wife) and there... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and our fist impressions when seeing the lobby were amazing. However, the room were only ok as the bathrooms were a bit tired.

A good location and hotel is in good standard.Food is tasty and has different choices. But do not change foreign currency in this place. The rates are very low and add service charge also. The guy at the reception tries to keep money for him too. The restaurant staff is not that friendly to customers.

We reached here late night, after our holy dip at the Maha Kumbh, first of all we asked them to give us the higher category of rooms, there was a marginal difference, so we opted for the better room, on reaching our room, we saw it was really small, n cramped, and were wondering if this was the higher room...
