Hotel Temple on Ganges

Reviewed 2 June 2017

Hotel locality was good and had no problem in spotting. Allotted room was clean and service was good. Hotel staff was caring and provided good service. Hotel was very close to the bank so it has nice view of river Ganges. There is no lift facility which is needed especially for my mother who had problem walking stairs. Otherwise overall stay was very good

Room Tip: Peaceful and has good view

Respected guest,
Thanks for your review.
We are glad and your review expression says you are satisfied with our hospitality.
Sure we wish to serve you and your family in your next visit to Varanasi.
About the elevator we are trying to put one as it is not easy since the hotel is located in heritage zone and no alteration is allowed by authorities.
Wards regards

I live in Toronto, Canada. I went to Varanasi during the last week of May 2017 and stayed at Hotel Temple on Ganges. The hotel is well located in the centre of the town. I felt homely and the staff were courteous and hospitable. They would provide us hot coffee and breakfast early in the morning from their small kitchen, which is served fresh. Drinking water was also good as they have an RO Unit and I didnt have to spend on buying water bottles everytime. There are autos 24/7 for easy transport to the temple and to various ghats. The hotel is not crowded and rooms are spacious with good AC, wifi facilities and room service. For anyone visiting Kasi for piligrimage, I recommend this hotel if they want to have a pleasant home like stay.

Room Tip: Best View of Ganges, well ventillated and free from noise

The hotel is very near to Assi Ghat and from the roof top,one can have a clear view of River Ganges.Since we were on a road trip,so car parking was very needed which should be safe.This hotel has suffient parking space in front.

Stayed: April 2017, travelled with friends

Two months ago, I spent four days in Varanasi. I chose this hotel because of the location. It was a major part of the experience as it took me 2-4 minutes from the room to the river so I could enjoy the prayers and ceremonies from sunset to the evening.

'Hotel Temple on Ganges'- We felt a little dissatisfied in the beginning, considering the prices upon visiting the most rooms, that certainly felt a little high that we later realized was because of the usual high demands throughout the year but the time of our visit (last week of April, 2017) was quite hot in and around the city and the ghats and hence the low traffic of visitors helped us bargain successfully. And there it started, the assimilation of the Ganges view over the balcony, and the city otherwise.

Coming to the technical parts, the Hotel Temple on Ganges has a character in terms of- 1). The overall ambiance as the hotel like the most in Varanasi are extension of the residential properties, clearly giving an edge to the overall feeling, simple yet quite clean and airy from most sides, in most rooms, 2). The Hotel Staff is all ears to you, really patient and genuinely concerned about the overall quality (gratification guaranteed with their overall behavior at the time of checkout, 3). Food quality was really good, homely with satisfactory prices overall, 4). Rooms, as we said earlier too are fresh, airy and of quite good quality interiors apart from a few that have aged yet are comfortable to stay as they come with a lesser price as well, 5). Best part is that it is hardly half a minute of walk away from the 'Assi Ghat' where you hire the boats to visits all or most Ghats via river specially the Marvelous Aarti performed every evening by a group of priests at the Dashashwamedh ghat.

Do not get overwhelmed just by the review but experience it yourself as the city of Banaras as suggested by many and the most that it is best experienced by foot or in Rickshaw and the Ghats in boat(s) right in the middle of Holy Ganges, so consider it again a personal experience as more than the technical aspects mentioned above it is the excellent, peaceful location of the Hotel that made the day in Varanasi a treat for the eyes sitting there till late night in the balcony of the rooms facing the Ganges at their top floor.

Room Tip: Deluxe (River facing) Rooms at their Top Floor

A must recommended Hotel for Family & stags both. I visited Varanasi in February with Family & stayed in Hotel Temple on Ganges due to its proximity to Assi Ghat. I took Ganga facing room for view of River..
I must say, we enjoyed our stay in this Hotel. Staff was very friendly & cooperative.
Food quality was good & comparable to quality restaurants.

A must visit for those looking for peace, tranquility with all amenities.

Respected guest,
Thanks for your review.
We are located on Assi ghat but accessible with all vehicles.
Located a little side from main road makes our place peaceful and tranquil.
Those who have been to Varanasi many a times do not need room with view but certainly those coming for the first time have charm for river view from the rooms.
We have the rooms with city view and river view and the deluxe room with river view are higher in tariff than city view as direct view of Ganges is there.
We once again thank for the chance you gave us to serve you.

Warm regards

I had chosen the Assi Ghat area, as it is the only ghat accessible by car. The hotel had sent a taxi that was waiting for us at the airport, this had not been not the case in several of the cities visited.
The room on the third floor was quite a climb and rather small but the kindness of the personnel made the sojourn pleasurable. The hotel manager was most helpful with his recommendations and in securing boat, car, auto-rickshaw, etc. for our daily outings, all reasonably priced. We had requested a private family Puja, it was organized for us on the property. We also enjoyed long chats with the owner.

When in Varanasi, I will be revisiting.
