This is one of the best places in Varanasi for its location, the Ganga view from some of the rooms, the phantastic roof top terrace - and, if he happens to be around - for its kind owner, Saurabhji, who will do his absolute best to make your stay memorable ! If you are interested, ask him to arrange for...

We stayed 1 week there. The location is excellent, right on the Chausatthi Ghat with our room (301) facing east with view on the Ganges and sunrise. Views from rooftop restaurant are great, so is the food. In close proximity there are plenty of restaurants and market street not further than 10 minutes walking away through what looks like medieval...

This isnt a flashy hotel but its a great location, right on the ghats, metres away from where all the magic of Varanasi takes place and its best feature is its rooftop view over the Ganges river. It was a bit tricky to find it through the backlanes which can be a cobweb maze so went via the ghats, easier...

The Sita Guest House is situated right on the Ganges River. The entrance to the guest house is on the steps of Chausatti Ghat facing the river. The balconies and the terrace restaurant overlook the river and ghats with a superb view up and down the river. It is in the heart of Varanasi and only minutes walk away from...

Great location. Also, Ragesh the hotel guide, does fantastic walking tours around Varanasi. His knowledge is excellent. I would love to build him a web site. If you're reading this, please email me at ivor.yonder@blueyonder.co.uk and I will build one as promised.

We stayed at Sita Guest House for 5 days this March. We reached the hotel by 5:00a.m in the morning and received a warm welcome. The location is excellent. It is right on the steps of Chausatti Ghats. The Dasashwamedh Ghats are just a 5 mins walk. One should not miss the evening aarti of that place. They have a...

This hotel is literally on the banks of the Ganges. It's an ideal location especially since it makes seeing the end of day ritual or Arti so easy because it's just a 5 min walk away! Since it is by the river though it is a bit difficult to access, no cars can get to it so it's about a...

I was so stupid to book 5 nights in advance (agode). But if you do not like the place they refuse to do a refund. I booked a budgetroom (INR 800) but the room is far to expensive for what they offer: nothing. Sheets and towels are clean, bed is good but room, bathroom are really very bad maintained and...

Very conveniently located on the ghats, steps away from the Dharbanga ghat. The hotel is simple, little run down, pictures from it on TA are not accurate!!! Was ok for 2 nights and the employees are helpful! We loved the rooftop terrace for breakfast and sundowner!

Very central location in Varanasi, easy to jump in a boat for a beautiful sunrise or sunset tour on Ganga. Dasaswamedh Ghat and the evening Aarti ritual is just a couple of minutes walk. The upper terrace and restaurant offer great views. The staff were very helpful, efficient and friendly. The room and hotel in general could have been cleaner.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This is considered an embodiment of the divine. Sita Guest House is ideally located on the Chausatti Ghat near the Ranaghat. This is only three minutes walk from the main ghat, far enough from burning ghat to avoid smokey smell. Sita Guest House is also within walking distance of the major tourist walking streets. This is a very peaceful place. There are no motor vehicles. You can only hear the sound pilgrims coming to bathe in the Holy Ganga. Life continues as it has for many centuries. Most rooms have a view of the Holy Ganga. Rooms are newly renovated and very clean. Location Situated in the heart of the ancient Chausatthi Ghat of Varanasi. Walking distance from Dasaswamedh Road. 20 minutes from Railway Station/Bus Stop, Airline Offices, 45 minutes from Varanasi Airport. Sita Guest House comes to you with facilities that help you relax and enjoy during your visit to Varanasi. (The City of Ghatt's).BANARAS ... more   less
