Reviewed 16 March 2012 via mobile

The Radisson was a comfortable and simple  place to stay. Staff was friendly, food was ok. Overall, a good option with no thrills. 

Stayed March 2012

This is a nice choice in Varanasi of the top of the line hotels. It's clean and the staff works very hard to make sure all of your needs will be met. The "Great Kebab Factory" Restaurant was really delicious. You order the meat or the veg option and then watch as the food arrives, and then eat until you are stuffed! We couldn't decide between the two so the staff delivered us a combo of meat and veg! The spa was also outstanding! Sign up for Arun's reflexology treatments and your feet and legs will be rejuvinated like never before!

Aside from the guest rooms looking a little tired (and it wouldn't take much to spruce them up) we enjoyed our stay here. The hotel staff were very helpful and looked after us well. The restaurant service was a bit on the slow side but we enjoyed the kebab restaurant (located on another floor) for dinner. Free wi fi which was a bonus.

We stayed here on a whim after arriving in Varanassi with no booking at night [stupid idea] and the staff at the reception were helpful if not a little suspicious as to why we didn't book in advance. After explaining to them i'd checked if there were reservations online they left us for nearly 35-40 minutes whilst they went and attended to "the more wealthy guests" of the hotel and left us sitting waiting whilst they fussed about around a few tables.
Rooms were pretty good sized and clean, but the view was of a big derelict building which i can't complain about as i was glad of somewhere to stay,and whatever type of creature that was stuck to the outside of our window [on the 5th floor], to this day i can't identify.
Hotel stands out like a sore thumb from the surrounding area and looks strange from a distance,but the staff and doormen were beyond helpful and really went out of there way to do everything they could for us.
The pool was in need of some tlc, but the food and drink selection was amazing and very well priced considering the standard.
Considering some other peoples stories of places they had stayed in Varanassi, i was happy with this hotel and if there again i would more than likely stay again.

Stayed at this hotel for less than 24 hours. Easy check in, friendly staff. Little bit of a cramped lobby. SLOWWWW elevators. Had a room on the business lounge floor--the employee there seemed confused and not helpful (also accusatory when I tried to go and get some coffee.
Rooms were okay-bathrooms nice and large but shower pressure a little off (although shower head looked amazing). Internet wi-fi free but went in and out. Needed help with a few things in room and service was quick and prompt.
Breakfast was included and was okay-mix of Indian and Western food. Breakfast employees weren't the most friendly and there was a really cold draft in room. A few shops on second floor-jewelry, etc.
There's a silk market right next door-didn't get much time to explore but there's a lot there.
Not that close to the Ganges, but easily accessible through taxi/rickshaw.
Overall, decent place to stay for quick overnight in Varanasi.

We stayed one night on tour of India. This is a tired hotel in need of some help. The beds were very firm and furnishings were old. The safe was not attached to anything. The hotel was clean and staff helpful. The buffet breakfast was average. Free WIFI.

Stayed here for three nights in January 2012. The hotel is in a quiet location far from the traffic madness that is Varanasi. We were upgraded to their suite which was wonderful with a beautiful view of this city. The manager is a gracious host to his hotel and the whole staff is wonderful and caring. Breakfast Buffet is good with a large variety of Indian foods. We arranged all our tours and transportation through the hotel and it worked out very well.

Room Tip: Don't get a room overlooking the street.
