“Best rest house in Varanasi.”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

The service and attention I´ve got during my stay there in Keshe Guest house was excellent. I couldnt imagine such a confort and security for so small money. The relation between the price and the quality of my room is the best ever in India. It´s a bit away of the most noisy streets in Varanasi so it makes possible to rest a bit cause some of the most busy guesthouses there in Benares, are too noisy by day and even very early in the morning.

It is very good to find a clean guest house in a city like varanasi. It was not so easy to find in that city. A lot of facility in that guest house : free wifi, air condition, hot shower...
We hope to come back next year.

Ashwani opened up his home to us at this fantastic little guest house, he treated us as honored guests. The room was great, wifi excellent and the location (despite being 2 km from the main Ghats and 2 mins walk from Assi Ghat) was great. His further recommendations of Cozy Corner (just about the corner!) and Open Hand were excellent. The Marsala Chai was also the best I have had in India! All in all a great place to stay

It is a beautiful family. They are nice, honest and not only give good information but also if you have any problem they do their best to help you.
It is a clean a very new place, you can see they try to maintain it, not that common here in India.
Room are wide and comfortable. Hot Shower and wi-fi.
It is very near to Assi Ghat.
I hope my next time they have inaugurated the restaurant and Ashwini, the owner, delight us with his food! :)

The best of this guesthouse is the excellent treatment that the owner, Ashwini, gives to the guests. He makes you feel at home at all times. He is kind and helpful and willing to chat.
The guesthouse is comfortable and clean. I liked the location, in a quite are for being in Varanasi. I would recommend it to any traveller.
My best wishes for Ashwini and his family,

Kesher Paying Guest House, located in the Assi Ghat area, was a relatively quiet, and overall lovely place to stay. Ashwini, the owner, is a gentle, honest man and retired lawyer with a nice family who lives on the ground floor. He was very helpful with any questions we had and even let us use his refrigerator to store our left-over food that we cooked. My wife and I stayed for one week on the 1st floor in a very comfortable big non-ac room with screened and curtained windows. We had to share a bathroom with the guests staying in the room adjacent to our room, but the cost of living there was right in our budget, so we didn't mind too much. There, we also a shared kitchen where we were able to cook some of our meals. We payed a little extra for the use of the kitchen, gas and filtered water, but it was totally worth it and within our budget of 10$ per day. We payed 300 rupees for our stay in late September, just before the start of the high tourist season. There is roof access, decorated with many plants, where you can hang your clothes to dry, and a distant view of the Ganges.

Assi Ghat, the location of the guest house, was perfect for my wife and I. We were able to take a boat ride from the Assi Ghat to the main burning ghat, Manikarnika, and back, just as the lonely planet suggests. It is also close to Aum cafe and Vaartika, which are also mentioned in the lonely planet. The guest house is a 12 minute bicycle ride costing 40 rupees or a long 35 minute walk to the old city. This was good for us because we preferred to be outside of the busy, noisy, crowded city. I was a bit ill and needed a break from the loud, hard, in-your-face India. Staying in Assi Ghat at Kesher felt like a softer and less densely populated, watered-down version of Varanasi. We also had wifi which worked most of the time. And when it wasn't working, Ashwini had it fixed right away.

Overall, we had a wonderful time and would definitely recommend this place to everyone staying in Varanasi.
