A hotel imitated star hotel but star current missing. Restaurant offer food but with lot of spices and little to offer in variety. Maintainance poor, hospitality poor. May be a budget hotel but over experience not so good.

On arriving I was impressed. This quickly changed. Mosquitoes in the foyer were off putting. The rooms were clean and adequate. House keeping staff were great and accomodating. Take care not to get laundry done on a Sunday as that incurs a 25% surcharge. My issues were the breakfast buffet was very poor, in both quality and selection the fresh...

An old hotel and once upon a time pride of Varanasi is facing stiff competition from new properties around. Probably they have to change with time to match other good hotels. Quality overall is declining and though hotel is still favorite with foreign tourists it may not be there in coming future.

Bathroom was clean and toiletries were...

This hotel is one of the older hotels in Varanasi on the Mall Road. The rooms facing the road is pretty noisy. So ask for rooms facing away from the room. Our window wasn't properly latching as well. The interior decor of the hotel is tasteful and they have interesting pics of old royalty from across India. Food was ok...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Exuding colonial charm but with all the mod-cons. this hotel is the flagship of the Clarks Group of Hotels, one of the oldest hotel groups in India. Within proximity of the hotel guests can visit the Old British Cantonment Area, the old city, Vishwanath Temple, and of course the Ghats of the Ganges, and Sarnath-the site of Buddha's first sermon. A must do when in this holy city is a boat ride in the Ganges either at sunset or sunrise. The restaurants on-site offer ample choices from North Indian to international dishes and even popular street food dishes. After a long day exploring Varanasi on foot and in rickshaws, a quick dip at the hotel pool is sure to be refreshing. An excellent hotel, Clarks is a popular choice for guests visiting this North Indian city. ... more   less
