“best place if you want to be near the Ganga”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 April 2013

This is a modest place, with some leaky faucets, the linen is clean and the khichdi was passable, but it is within a reasonable distance of the ghats and the Ganga. Also just outside the hotel, you could get a great matka of hot milk or lassi with the cream on top.
Varanasi is a fascinating city, and this place is very strategically placed for an insight into the core of the city

We stayed at this hotel during a tour of India in Feb 2013. Our room was disgusting, there were cock roaches in the reception and the staff were terrible. The bathroom was so dirty we were scared to use. We were meant to stay 2 night but after 6hrs we decided to cut our losses and move on! The corridors stank of something very unsavory and the breakfast room was never cleaned. I would not recommend a stay here ever, it was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in bar none in my whole life! Avoid at all costs!!

I booked this hotel from Cleartrip.com. Finally through ratings i found that the hotel is not good to take your family. Hence, i cancelled my reservation. I booked another hotel through phone call only. These people did not returned a single penny and said that this is not in our policy. If you book and cancel within 3 days, no money will be refunded. I was shocked to know that i will not be refunded any amount. I lost my Rs.1800 . I will not recommend anyone to book this hotel online through cleartrip. At these places you can easily get rooms and these cheaters make fool through online bookings.

First up, if you're looking to book here- find somewhere else.

My friend and I arrived after a long train trip and we were greeted by arrogant and cocky staff. When we were shown to our room, they couldn't even open the door at first and then forgot to give us the key. Room was filthy; hadn't been cleaned and the bed sheets were stained and there was pubic hair on them! Bathroom was gross too. Also, the walls were stained and grotty-looking. We pretty much didn't want to touch anything.

The corridors STANK and when we complained we got a better room but we actually ended up finding a 3-star hotel and having a lovely, relaxing night there instead. We were lucky!

Oh, and one more thing- in our second room we had monkeys banging on the windows when we tried to dry our hair after cold showers.

Bad hotel. You may want to look for something better in Varanasi.
This hotel needs refurbishing ASAP: tiles, beds, wallpaper, electricity, air conditioning (very loud)... should be renewed.
Coffee was served in polystyrene (or plastic) cups. To most eatable on the breakfast 'buffet' were the peanuts. Toast smelled as it survived 2 monsoons.

Room Tip: the rooms outside this hotel are better.

We stayed here for 1 night in December 2011, but not by choice - the place we originally booked did not have our reservation and was full, so our local tour guide brought us here. It was New Years Eve, so we were grateful to have had a place to stay at all. But if we had a choice, we wouldn't stay here and would recommend travelers to look elsewhere. The rooms were large, but very dirty, even by Varanasi standards -- yellow sheets, stinky blankets, stained towels, etc. The staff had uniformly sour faces and were not helpful at all.

And this incident actually happened, I kid you not: when we went to the 2nd floor for breakfast the next morning, the restaurant/cafe was a mess and we were told that there was no breakfast that day, even though we had paid for a buffet breakfast. They couldn't give us an explanation. Later, I overheard the manager give an explanation to another guest -- he said that the staff partied all night and got too drunk on New Years Eve, and none of them showed up in the morning, so they weren't able to serve breakfast that day. That about summarizes this hotel right there...

If you somehow end up at this hotel, here's a tip: there's a decent food court across the street, in the cinema/mall complex. Eat there, not at the hotel.
