5 of us had to find a place on the fly in the middle of our trip in India. We were lucky to find this gem of a guest house. It is located in the heart of old Varanasi with views overlooking the Ganges.
Mintu - the owner and manager was terrific. He was kind, helpful and accommodating...easily arranging boats to cruise the Ganga for the evening and at dawn. When someone in our party asked about an authentic Hindu dance show, he arranged for us to see one that evening!
Since this part of Varanasi is essentially a maze and one can easily get lost, Mintu assigned a young man, Sunnu, to be our guide. He took us to ATM's, tailor shops, restaurants, the traditional dance show...anywhere we needed to go. Sunnu was so patient - trying to accommodate the needs of 5 Americans. This was an unexpected but greatly appreciated & wonderful service provided to us.
Three of us shared a triple room which was spacious and had terrific views of the Ganges. It was quiet and allowed a restful sleep. The private marble-lined bathroom was VERY clean. Breakfast was served on a rooftop terrace where we could enjoy watching monkeys at play or the slow process of life on the Ganges. The menu had a nice selection to choose from. Since they don't serve lunch or dinner, we were referred next door to the Lotus Garden - a wonderful spot for lounging the afternoon away. It is run by a German woman so it is very clean and has a wonderful selection of light foods...and we ate the fresh salads without any ill effects to follow!
We were there at the end of November. The triple room was about 50USD per night. For that price, this was an unbeatable value - as the cleanliness and comfortable beds were MUCH appreciated, not to mention the wonderful hospitality and service. Thank you, Mintu!
