We would definitely recommend staying at Sandhya, for the warm and welcoming service. Gopal, one of the managers, gave us a detailed map of Varanasi and explained thoroughly about the sites, prices and generally helped us find our way in the city. He took us on a tour to see the cremation ceremonies on the Ganges, which was a very...

The rooms range from basic to luxurious (as do the prices), my partner and I stayed in a beautifully spacious room (picture attached) costing 1000 rupees per night,...

I fell in love with the family that run this place, from Bose and his wife who own it to the backbone taking care of you, it is certainly somewhere I recommend staying. They also have a roof top restaurant with some of the best food I've had in Varanasi, especially the veg burger... full power! Thank you for an...
