Our stay at the Ganpati was nothing short of five stars. The hotel was in the absolute perfect location with a beautiful view overlooking the Ganges river, a helpful and friendly staff, and a great rooftop restaurant happy to serve (the waiter/ guy running the show was absolutely fantastic!). The rooms are beautiful and very comfortable. What truly made our...

I stayed at the Ganpati for 3 nights - and cannot recommend this guesthouse highly enough. Rooms are spotless - and well looked after during your stay. The rooftop restaurant overlooks the Ganges - and serves delicious, affordable food. The location is AMAZING - Ganpati has its own, private steps leading to the Ganges, in the heart of the Old...

We spent two nights at the Ganpati and we were very satisfied with the accomodation. The room was really clean, with fascinating decorations and attention to details (as in all the house), the bathroom was small but functional and we enjoyed of a beautiful view on the Ganges and the Ghats from the balcony. The staff at the reception was...

This is absolutely the best hotel in Varanasi. I've seen all the rest on the river and this is the nicest [though there's a new one that is super luxury, it's 10 times the cost of Ganpati]. Ganpati is super clean, the staff are very nice, the restaurant food is delicious, the views are the best in town, Meer Ghat...

It has a good location, it is a little expensive but it is nice to have a window to the Ganges. We have to say that at 11 all doors are close and in the reception floor there are already all the staff sleeping. It will be not possible even get a bottle of water.

This is a well placed hotel, several rooms have views of the river. The rooms are small and crowded but very clean. The staff were very helpful and very honest.

The Ganpati Guest House is located in the centre of Varanasi, at the very brink on the Ganges, you can't get much closer to the river. Very good rooms, nice and tidy, comfortable beds, roof fan and air-conditioned, wifi (though it was a bit slow when we were there, in the whole house), we had a balcony overlooking the river,...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
