It is quite a pretty place, located at abbout 30 minute taxi ride from Ganges, where you can see ritual bathing and cremations taking place, if you are in for this kind of sightseeing. The staff were friendly and helpful and efficient - nothing to complain about in this department. I liked my room a lot - it was spacious...

The Hotel Ideal Tower is a larger, but older, five story hotel. It is located on a busy street about a 30 min. drive from the river. There are limited facilities in the hotel such as a pool, spa, banquet room, and one shop, and there are also limited facilities in the area around the hotel. The rooms are in...

I was really nervous about staying at this hotel after reading the Trip Advisor reviews. Yes, it is a little dated and noisy, and not up to the standard of some of the other hotels we stayed in - but we have also stayed in worse.Honestly we couldn't find too much to complain about. Staff were helpful and friendly -...

The room I stayed in was clean but the floor lobby and lifts were anything but, with moldy stained carpets and rickety lifts. The room was quite spacious for the amount but was very basic as can be expected. Didn't have any food except for the breakfast buffet which was just ho-hum. Worth staying only for the location in my...

Our room was awful! The air was so stale and moldy/musty that we actually forced the windows open just to get some "fresh" air (which is saying a lot, because the air in Varanasi was anything but "fresh")! The shower/bathtub had black mold on the walls. We tried turning on the air conditioner hoping that it would dry out the...

Nothing more to say about the hotel. Varanasi IS worth the trip.

If this hotel shows up on your travel agent's list of choices, do yourself a favor and choose a different hotel. The hotel was obviously built and furnished on the smallest budget possible, judging by their choices of furniture, sprigs of plastic flowers hanging in the hallways, strange room layouts, thin walls and especially the mold and mildew which permeates...

ugly lobby full of dusty plastic flowers, cheap fluorescent lighting and overwhelming smell of mold. The room was no better even though we got a superior room. More plastic plants, shabby amenities, and dingy towels. We needed twin beds but got a king sized bed, and when we requested a change, the man at reception was extremely rude and unhelpful....

We had landed in Delhi and came straight to Varanasi. We had arranged a pick up from the airport (flight delayed, but pick up there) and we came straight to the hotel, where our room was available (around 1pm). Rooms were comfortable, slightly out dated, but overall generally well maintained and cleanish, though not spotless. However, it was fine -...

For India and Varanasi conditions, this hotel is doable. I recommend shower shoes as I was very glad I packed some when we got here. The listing advertises and rants about the importance of wireless internet access in this day and age, but there is only a business centre, absolutely no wifi, which was unfortunate since our phone provider allows...
