After a two week trip through India, Varanasi was our last stop and we really appreciated a bit of Western luxury and food. The hotel is modern in build and feel and a real contrast to the many magnificent Palace-type hotels we stayed in in Rajasthan. It is not a 5 star hotel, probably 4, but the staff were polite and helpful, the rooms and general appearance clean, and the main restaurant serves a good value buffet every day. In between excursions we sat by the nice pool area - nothing special but then you do not go to Varanasi for the swimming pools. In any event it was January and the pool was not heated and really too cold to swim. Definitely worth a stay but not if you are looking for character and charm.
