“Good hotel but far from city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 April 2013

Nice hotel with the facilities and food was very tasty. but its time consuming to travel for the city and the other places to visit. Rooms were in good quality and and the staff also very helpful and friendly.

Large rooms, clean all throughout, prompt and efficient service. Friendly staff.
Food and beverage is very expensive though - being the only eating joint within a few kilometres - I believe this is a bit of a monopolistic situation.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2012

At our 2 night stay here, we felt like we were staying in the hotel from the Shining by Stephen King haha.
it's quite creepy, I don't know if its a combination of the lighting, the aged design and the porters and staff that linger and stare, but we felt rather uncomfortable during our stay here.
i had to fight the porters off from carrying my bag, they kept trying to pull it out of my hands, this is another place where staff are desperate to try and squeeze as many tips as they can from you. It's very annoying and uncomfortable as they always hang around.
the service in the restaurant downstairs was quite poor, often taking ages to bring even simple meals or breakfast options and the food itself was average.
the elevator was broken which was annoying as we were on the 4th floor.
the rooms are very big but the ceiling fan was not working and the airconditioner was quite far away from our beds so it was a bit more difficult to cool the room down.
Beds were comfy and room service was good. Wifi was okay, though I'd always suggest to stay on a lower floor.
bath and shower in the bathroom, shower was good and reliable at least!
big mirror and dressing table in the room along with a seating area next to the air conditioner. also a large warddrobe available.
there was no view whatsoever from the window as airconditioner took up most of the space.

We thought this place was terrific. It has fantastic air conditioning, big rooms, folks who really want to help you out, good service, clean rooms, warm shower... The restaurant below has fantastic food and good (but slow as usual) service. We had stuffed tandori potatoes that were to die for. The place is a little out of the action, but it's nice if you're feeling pressured. Internet place across the street. I don't know what the other folks are complaining about. The car drove right up to the front and we walked in on clean marble. Fancy-- a little too fancy for me, so I felt pretty good.

This place is in the middle of nowhere, it isn't even IN Varanasi, the rooms were filthy and had literally 100's of moth balls to try to disguise the odor that was akin to a male urinal toilet on an Indian train. My room had NO hot water and NO heat. It was freezing being that the windows won't shut either. The flooring has no rugs or cover so it was unbelievably cold in the room. The sheets and bedding were filthy. The "white" towels were brown so even if there WAS hot water, who would want to shower like that? Mind you, I am a seasoned traveler, this was not my first trip to India and I didn't expect the Ritz Carlton but this was worse than a flea bag hostel. Do yourself a favor and find a place with a better rating that you can trust.
