Wonderful original spaces, with well decorated and clean rooms. The A/C and fan were a little noisy, but this is India. The bathroom always had hot water with plenty of water pressure. The internal courtyard is a nice common area where you can relax and met other travelers. Staff at reception desk were always ready with honest advice. Restaurant is...

Bathroom a little cramped, but it had plenty of hot water and ok water pressure. Restaurant food is just ok, but it has a great view and the staff is pretty friendly. Gotta...

This was an amazing experience, right above the ghats of the Ganges River, the most holy city in India. For the balcony outside our room we could see so much happening, then we walked down the steps onto the ghat for an experience we have never had before. The Guest house is very old but very clean and well appointed...

Our rooms with Balcony and side river view are 2500-3500 rupees, but the rooms are very small and the restaurant is just in front of our rooms so Late night and early morning are very noisy. The best of Ganpati GH is location, just in the middle of all attraction places.

We had a non AC , non TV room (in March) and it was good value, the overhead fan perfectly adequate. Only issue was that our room had a thin wooden shared wall and we could hear everything from next door. Restaurant is good and has lovely view of river. If you are arriving for the first time you must...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
