Location of the hotel is Nadesar which is a very well connected location to all parts of Varanasi. Apart from this everything was good - special mention...

We had a very comfortable stay at the Gateway as we toured the Ganges River and the cremation sites along the river. The welcome buffet was good and Indian food is pretty hot and spicy. I learned that if you order a Lassie, a blend of yogurt, water, spices and fruit, it offsets your burning mouth. I prefer plain style,...

We had a great stay at the hotel. The food was tasty and the staff at the restaurant was very courteous. The reception staff was equally great and arranged transport vehicles very easily at any time of the day/night. Especially when we wanted to go for the early morning Ganga Aarti. Thank You !!

Forget the international buffet restaurant. Head straight for the Indian Restaurant in the Hotel. The food is excellent as was the service. The hotel is an oasis amidst the hubbub of the city. It is clearly geared to the tourist market and we had an enjoyable stay for 2 nights as part of a larger tour if northern India.
