At Rudra rooms are clean and confortable, only noisy guest will disturb your rest. Staff is very helpful Location is one of the best: narrow and quiet street just a couple of minutes from... More

My friend and I stayed here for 4 nights in a double, non-AC room for 800 rupees per night. Our first night, the room was pretty toasty (outdoor temperatures were in the low 100sF during the day for all of that week), so we asked to be moved to a room with windows and this was done with no hesitation...

I stayed with my boyfriend for three nights. Nice place, good and helpfull staff. Location close to the main ghat and main bazaar road. Internet was sometimes working in our room (2nd floor) after asking manager to fix it. Not hot water at this time, but that's India!

This place suited our needs well. Was a hectic journey to Varanasi, so a hot shower and easy friendly staff was very refreshing. Located right where you want to be. Accessible to everything in old town, and near the ghats. Eat at Brown Bread Bakery and Lotus Lounge near by. Namaste!!

I stayed in this hotel with my family in February 2013. The rooms were quite clean, spacious, colorful with small windows (it's difficult to expect more in India for this price), with WI-FI access. The managers sent a driver who met us at the airport, then we had to walk a little through typical Indian street with our luggage (manager... More

We stayed at Rudra's for 2 nights and had an excellent time! We were welcomed into the family home and looked after extremely well. We stayed in a large air conditioned room with a hot shower and it was very clean. It is also about 100 metres from the ghats. The best part of Rudra's however was the way we... More

Me and my friend from Norway arrived Varanasi at late night. A lot of people offered us a guest house to stay in, we were lucky that we met the guys from Rudra guest house. Clean beds, clean bathroom and good wifi. This guest house is around 1 year old, so its not that expensive. And the reception will always... More

Really enjoyed our time at Rudra Guest House. The staff were very helpful and friendly. It was also nice to have hot water for a change. The location was quiet, away from the hectic everyday life of Varanasi. My friend lost her passport and Balla (a music teacher at a sister guesthouse) helped her to get it back. Also 25%... More

“Definitely ask for an AC room and, if possible, to stay upstairs with the family. You'll be greeted with a cup of chai made by Ati, and have anything you need.”
