Eden Halt was our perfect guesthouse in Varanasi and India. With great central location, it's close to the main ghats and everything we needed, but in a quiet place, Raja Ghat. Everytime we arrived from an intense day, the peaceful house with Ganga view instantly cleared our minds. The best part was our host - now friend - Sanjay and...

If you are looking for luxury accommodation then look elsewhere but if you want to stay in cozy place ran by friendly Indian family than that is the place to go! Location is also good as it takes just few minutes to get to Dasaswamedh ghat. All in all great place to stay while you are in Kashi!

Eden Halt is a lovely, small 4-room guesthouse tucked away above the Ganga at Phandey Ghat. Sanjay and his brothers who run the guesthouse are amazing - full of information about Varanasi and always down for a good conversation. Sanjay even gives very detailed and remarkable astrology readings if you ask nicely : ) Definitely a quiet spot that attracts...

The rooms may just be a simple bed , simple bathroom but the owners more than make up for it with their warming embrace and endless advice and guidance to see the full magnificence of varanasi. Set along the ganges itself with a roof top for excellent veiwing of daily life along the ghats.it being a moment walk from bengali...

What a place...!!! With only 4 rooms, it makes the atmosphere intimite. Great view over the Ganga and the gates, just in the middle of them. Deepening in my own quest, I was guided by the staff and fellow travelers. Staying 3 weeks is a long time for me, but the city, the Ganga and hostel life provided me with...

I did not actually stay in the guest house, we stayed elsewhere but a friend suggested I should go and meet Sanjay the owner and Mike that became almost a permanent resident there. We did, and it was a pure pleasure and extremely interesting. Mike gave us one of the morning a lovely, soft Hata yoga class. He has an...

Not to mention the Perfect location at the best ghat, the big rooms, one of the best showers in India, Wifi, and the wonderful heartwarming...

My brother and I came across this place by chance after a break down in communication with our rickshaw driver but we are so glad we ended up here. Sanjay is the host at this guest house and he is a Varanasi local. Whether you want to discuss the tenets of Hinduism or if you have any questions about the...

Sanjay, the owner, is an expert in Vedic Astrology, and will more than happily prepare your Birth Chart, then sit and discuss it with you in length. This is free of charge (it is his passion), but you are welcome to give donation. So, to anybody interested in this kind of thing, I more then highly recommend the experience. I...
