Note: I'm am American tourist who previously traveled India quite a bit. I stayed at Hotel Varuna on a solo trip for 3 days / 2 nights.
I stayed in a Deluxe room with a balcony, which was more space than I needed. I had no trouble sleeping at night (with ear plugs). The beds were 9/10 by India standards and 7/10 by American standards - they exceeded my expectations.
The hotel is located near the center of the city, but not close to the center of tourism (the ghats). However, it's only a short auto-rickshaw ride away.
Sanjeev has a great sense of humor and was willing to do whatever possible to make my stay easier. The whole staff was exceedingly helpful - key for inexperienced India visitors.
Great food selection, very tasty, reasonably priced. Convenience of good food in a hotel after a long day was incredible.
There were moments when I would have preferred a closer location, but the price, service, and accommodations made Hotel Varuna a great place to spend my time in Varanasi. I'd recommend the property, esp if the rates are a good deal.
