I am really confused as to why anyone would think this is a good hotel. After reading all of the positive reviews on tripadvisor I booked a three night stay for my friend and I at Rashmi Guest House. Varanasi was the last stop on our Indian excursion and I must say... the worst part of the trip. The city...

After the most stressful taxi ride from the train station (where we were taken to another hotel of a similar name) we arrived at the Rashmi Guest house for our 3 nights stay. You cant get a rickshaw or car to the entrance of the hotel as the streets are so narrow so you'll have either carry your bags the...

Small,clean rooms and tiled bathrooms with hot water. AC not always working and opening windows was not an option as the noise and smell made this impossible. Roof top views were OK but food was mediocre at best. WiFi only at the computer area- not throughout the hotel as advertised. The staff was mostly helpful and friendly but beware of...

We stayed for two nights: in a small room with one bed (due to a booking error) and another room with two twins (which was much better). For both rooms: No view of the river, but we didn't come to hang out in the room! The rooms and bathrooms were clean, and the staff are great and helpful. The place...

I stayed three night in mid-Oct. The airport pick-up I had requested and paid for did not arrive so I was left to fend for myself. Taxi car from the airport to the edge of the Old City, then a cycle-rickshaw, then a walk. It's next to impossible to navigate though the old city to find this place so I...

Walk the ghats, see the sunrise, experience the evening fire ceremony, take a boat, explore old Varanasi - the location of the Rashmi Guest House can't be beat for location. You can do all of this just by stumbling out the front door and down a few steps. And the Guest House staff is very friendly. The pickup/drop off from...

With stayed in Rashmi Guest House for two nights. The rooms are small but clean. The shower worked perfectly, with hot water!
