A nice and quiet place in the midst of the Varanasi buzz. The perfect place to come back to after a day of experiencing India. The rooms are really comfortable and the staff is putting in a lot of effort to make it that relaxing place it is, every day. A very good choice to chill and relax for a...

What an amazing place to stay! Not all rooms are equal and had we not had such a fantastic view from our room, I am sure the stay would not have been the same. However, to wake up and be able to see the sunrise above the Ganges from our bed was just amazing. The restaurant was great value and...

The Ganpati Guest House is clean, cozy and a wonderful place to take rest after walking around the crowded alleys of Varanasi. We stayed in the Rs. 2500/night room. It had a balcony with a view on the Ganga. I loved the decor and the hot shower was simply amazing. I'd highly recommend staying here while in Varanasi.

This has been the nicest hotel ive stayed in so far. I stayed in room 1 and 5 and both were beautifully decorated. The location is fantastic. Be prepared to get lost in the lanes, but this is part of the Varanasi experience. The water is hot, staff are friendly, WiFi has great signal and plenty of warm fluffy blankets....

Ganpati guest House keeps improving services along the years. Location is amazing, People is nice and helpful overall, especially at the roof top restaurant. Bedrooms are ok, comfortable and clean, although noisy: you hear conversations, cough, everything in the next rooms. That is a downside, especially if your neighbours are not caring and respectful. Water is hot so you can...

This was a great place to stay. Our room had a balcony on the side of the hotel looking out onto the Ganges. Located directly on the steps to the Ganges. Although it was inaccessible to vehicles the staff were great - carrying our bags for the 10 minute walk through town. The roof top restaurant had great service, the...

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
