This is a very nice little hotel. It is a little hidden in a side corner, but that makes it also very quite and nevertheless it is very close to the main gath. The rooms were simple but clean. The bathroom was also very clean in "Western Style" and with a shower with warm water (if asked for it a few minutes in advance).
The staff was very friendly and helpful. Especially in Balla you find a very reliable and trustworthy guide for Varanasi. He knows every temple and explains everything in a very good english. He even arranged a private tour through the silk quater for us. If you come to Varanasi I would highly recommend asking for Balla as a guide.
There is also an old brown bread bakery which belongs to the hotel. There you get you breakfast made out of freshly baked bread in european style. They also offer very good and cheap indian food. And 25% of the money you pay goes to charity. In the summer time you can also enjoy your breakfast on the roof top terrace which has a very nice view of Varanasi.
We highly recommend staying in this hotel when coming to Varanasi!
