on the ghats of Varanasi, its not practical to expect a plush drive in ..since galleys run the length and breadth of the water front. How ever, tugging your luggage along through the galleys to this place , your grumpiness vanishes in a whisk, when we feast eyes on the grand Ganga view from your balcony.. But not all rooms...

We chose the place as it was right on the Ghats, very close to Dasaswamedhghat and right next to Darbhanga Ghat. There is a roof top restaurant serving good food with a fabulous view of the Ganges. I wish it could be a bit more clean.

The place is great as far as the view is concerned. The hotel staff are very polite and well mannered and are helpful. Felt safe throughout! If you get up at the crack of dawn, or even late at night. the sight of the flowing Ganges is very soothing. The food however, is not great. You have decent choices nearby,... More

I rang and booked 3 nights over the phone requesting an aircon room with nice river views. Based on my conversation and the photos on their website I didn't expect an upmarket room however I did expect my room to have curtains, be clean and have basics like toilet paper. The room was dirty and with no curtains at all... More

I went to Benaras, along with my parents, at the end of June, just before the onset of monsoons.
