Perfect location for a great view of Ganga! Easy access to the ghats and one can get down at the hotel on way from the rafting directly. The stay is pleasant and comfortable for family and group stay.

i only stayed one night but service by hotel manager was very good, he helped me with issues not relating to hotel. Large selection of breakfast items available. Quiet location, little away from main noisy centre and only 5-10 minute walk to it.

Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Good location, not too far from ram jhula, the first bridge. Across the river from Parmath niketan where the most popular aarti happens. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and has a great view of the river. They also have a spa conveniently located at the hotel so that you can get a massage...
