What strikes you about this hotel is its people .. ever smiling, ever indulging and trying their best to make your stay as comfortable as possible. Though the front office never replies to mails it was quite a different experience to meet them in person. The receptionists were cordial and the process of check in and check out were easy....

This Taj hotel is my favourite for several reasons. We were upgraded immediately, a female member of staff remembered us from a visit 5 years ago and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The hotel also organised transport for us which was half the price that Cox and Kings quoted. The breakfast buffet is the best I have ever...

When we went to Varanasi we stay in this hotel. We fell good stay here. the rooms are spacious and cleanly maintained. But one thing is it is far from temple and Ganga ghats. Other than that everything is good.

This Taj has good hospitality while welcoming guests.It take 1.5 hour from airport to reach this place and it is nearest proximity to railway station.For every dine seating it costs minimum 2000 INR (30$) for two people.Swimming pool is under renovation so can't be accessed till jan 25th 2017.

Disappointed in this hotel as all of the other Taj hotels that we have stayed in in India have been wonderful, some even spectacular. The hotel reception area and restaurant here are nice and the food is excellent, but the room are very tired and the hallways smell musty. The linens are dingy, the flooring is pergo, the bathroom old...

The hotel is 2 1/2 km or so from the Ghats. Given the usally poor state of congestion on the roads in the area, this distance actually translates into travel time of 30 mins or so between the hotel and the Ghats which makes popping back to the hotel and using its facilities during the day impractical. The hotel is...

It is a friendly hotel with great staff. It is not the luxury of the Taj hotels in Dehli but the food is good and like all service we found in India -- amazing. There are nice gardens to walk around right next to the busy streets filled with people and cattle.
