The hotel is in a good location, away from the crowded and rather squalid ghats area, with nice gardens. The alfresco poolside dinner was a bonus. But the lobby and lounges are anything but restful, with very large tour groups constantly booking in and out; a breakdown in their card system when we were checking out brought chaos. Also the air conditioning refused to take the temperature any lower than 75F at night, even though it was probably cooller than that outside.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Exuding colonial charm but with all the mod-cons. this hotel is the flagship of the Clarks Group of Hotels, one of the oldest hotel groups in India. Within proximity of the hotel guests can visit the Old British Cantonment Area, the old city, Vishwanath Temple, and of course the Ghats of the Ganges, and Sarnath-the site of Buddha's first sermon. A must do when in this holy city is a boat ride in the Ganges either at sunset or sunrise. The restaurants on-site offer ample choices from North Indian to international dishes and even popular street food dishes. After a long day exploring Varanasi on foot and in rickshaws, a quick dip at the hotel pool is sure to be refreshing. An excellent hotel, Clarks is a popular choice for guests visiting this North Indian city. ... more less
