Very nice and clean room with a great Banarasi host. Conviniently located within 10 mins access to assi ghat and also very reasonably priced. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for cheap and clean accommodation in Varanasi.

I highly recommend the stay in this guest house. The room was clean, there were hot water whenever I needed, and the staff was very nice and helpful. The guest house has rooftop with a very nice view, and is located very close to Assi Ghat.

I stayed in this very new and clean accommodation for two nights and can nothing but recommend this place! The stuff is friendly and helpful, the rooms have good standards and are cheap, the common area invites to relax and the view to the Ganga from the rooftop is great! If you don't mind to walk around half an hour...

Very kind and accommodating staff. Affordable and beautiful view of the ghat. Off of the main road so much more quiet. The staff took very good care of us and even arranged our transportation to the airport for us at a good price.

The Bliss hostel was recommended by a Varanasi native, so we trusted this. Sure enough, we were really happy with the cleanliness and super nice staff. They have a few types of room accommodations for private or shared rooms. I am traveling back through Varanasi tomorrow and already booked a room with them again.

The people are fast to filling requests, and fixing anything that requires maintenence. They have a nice area to chill upstairs and also have pretty clean bathrooms, with hot showers! The people are easy to work with, and very friendly. Good place for a good price. Great for backpackers!

Clean, basic rooms/dorms with clean shared bathroom and constant very hot water at a very reasonable price. We had to move here during Dev Diwali, after a mix up with our previous hotel booking, when it seemed with a million visitors to the city there was not a room to be had anywhere. Rupal is most welcoming and seems genuinely...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
More than just a place to sleep...a place to rest your soul! No hotel, however grand, gives you the feel of home like this lovely heart of holy city bed and breakfast does. Centrally located in Varanasi city, our guest house is nearby ganga quiet, peaceful and secure environment. Basic amenities. Staying with the family will give you a unique local experience with the charm, warmth & intimacy of a private family guest house. One of our guests said that "the family is everything at Holy City Guest House has a touch of 'home' to it; offering elegant, affordable accommodation & warm hospitality with a quiet, relaxing and un-intruding atmosphere. Our constant endeavor is to make your stay in Varanasi, whether for tourism or business, as comfortable and memorable as possible. We wouldn't want it any other way; I think people who are looking for a more local experience, which is cheap and where you can enjoy home cooked meals may enjoy this stay. ... more   less
