Very enjoyable stay at the Shiva Ganges View Hotel. Booked the Superior Deluxe room with air-conditioning and were not disappointed. Our room came with a lovely balcony where you could eat meals overlooking the Ganges, watching the monkeys spring across the trees. Vivek, the in-house tour guide took us on a fun-filled tour, starting with the Sunrise boat trip which... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 1 night stay at the Shiva Ganges – it is one of the best maintained buildings on the Varanasi waterfront, and the owners/hosts should rightfully be proud of it – you will find oodles of character here – and paying a bit extra for a room with view to the Ganges was well worth it. But... More

Great room with view over the Ganges... excellent food if you want to stay in, also a short walk to restaurants, coffee shops and street food if you want to go out. Walk out the front door and down the steps to the local ghat. Helpful staff and guide made everything easy even in the middle of the demonetization situation

A wonderful place to stay near the Manassorvar Ghat. Colonial period building, stylishly decorated. Clean and comfortable, and with good air conditioning. The food is excellent and fresh. The owner made us feel most welcome on our Honeymoon, but the best feature of our stay was the guide, Vivek. He showed us parts of Varanasi that we would not have... More

We had an amazing stay at Shiva Ganges View . We stayed 3 days around Diwali. Such a warm welcome from Tendon Jee and his team! The service was really great, and the rooms beautiful. In the evening Pradeep gave us a very nice relaxing and energising massage. The guide that was recommended to us by the guest house, Vivek,... More

Stayed for three days on October. Very helpful and friendly people. Great view. Close to the ghats. Our train was late to depart for Varanasi and they called and followed up, otherwise we would not have been aware. Good inhouse food too. Would recommend.

Only stopped off for some tea and porridge but it was incredibly peaceful and the view was fantastic. The banana porridge was also good. The staff are very friendly and they even gave us a big rod to ward off monkeys. I thought they were joking until one hopped over the balcony. Who knew monkeys could climb.

If you're looking for a place that is centrally located in Benaras , you have probably not come to live in Benaras. If you want to live in Benaras, wake up and go down the steps of Manasarovar Ghaat and take a dip in the Ganga before lunch, this is your place. If you want to use a boat to... More

The staff really tried its best to make our stay as enjoyable as possible. We stayed in two different rooms (one for our first 2 nights and a second one for the last 2 nights) and they were nice. The food was good. The tour guide was very kind, however it was difficult to understand his english.
