I think that staying in uma house was the best experience in my trip to India. I really learned a lot about Indian culture, food, Hinduism. I had the fortune to meet a little kid there who was my guide in Varanasi. Staying here show me that the best way to learn and enjoy a place is having a real...

Thanks lonely planet! 3 members of this family managing 3 rooms will do everything to make your stay impossible. As soon as you have registered they will stop to be polite with you. They will try to come inside your room for one reason or another, just to check what you are doing. Each door, made of wood, has a...

Uma guesthouse is a nice place to stay in Varanasi, well situated, very clean and in a beautiful indian house. Bolu is adorable and always helpful! We forgot our keys in our room and he made all his time free to find a solution, and he did solve the problem.

We stayed at Uma Guesthouse for three days in September 2014. It is located close to the Ghats including Main Ghat and Burning Ghat. The building is typical for Varanasi's old town and has a very nice rooftop, from where you can enjoy the view on Ghanga, see children flying kites, watch monkeys or have an interesting conversation with Kaki...

Uma Guest house is tucked away in the winding streets of Varanasi - very close to the Ghats. This place is full of character, basic but clean rooms and very friendly host who can help organise trips etc. We would recommend!

Excellent stay for 3 days in February. Bholu the manager was extremely courteous. Rooms were well kept , and the biggest advantage was hot water availability 24/7. They went out of their way to cater to every whim and fancy of mine. Accidentally rated the swimming pool and everything as five stars, there is no swimming pool, its more like...

The people running the guesthouse are extremely friendly and willing to help, nice to share the space with them. Our room was big and clean. Really basic and common bathroom (no sink) but hot water and peace and silence at the top floor of the crowded maze of Varanasi. And you'll really enjoy that quiet after a day spent in...
