the views from the room are great, you are overlooking the burning bodies, so watching that part of the culture was very interesting. The monkeys visiting you was all a part of it too. Shared book to read for my travels was nice as well....More

Super-Deluxe rooms have TV, Refrigerator and intercom too.Internet is available on demand.The Roof top (river view) restaurant offers sumptuous refreshments cooked under strict supervision in very hygienic conditions.Pick-up service on request is available from the railhead as well as the airport (Payable).Medical aid is available on call.As a policy matter, Scindhia Guest House does not allow consumption of Narcotic Drugs / intoxicants of any kind and nature within the property.

About 1km walk through the historic narrow lanes ! If you inform hotel, they will send their person to pickup your luggage and guide you.

Dear Pranab. There are no parkingfacilities. And you can not drive all the way because the roads are too narrow. My suggestion is not to take your vehicle, take the train! The rooms with balcony all faces the Ganges.
