Hotel staff is friendly, breakfast and dinner is delicious, variety is more than enough. Rooms are big and clean. There are two elevator. There was a wedding party during our stay, which was a little bit noisy, but ended at around 01:00 AM. You can easily discover Varanasi from here. The whole neighborhood is pretty clean, it is not so much crowded as in the center.
As usual, there is no free internet at this level of the hotel stars.

This probably used to be a very good hotel. But in very past times.
It is situated in a very nice location, in Cantonment, which is some kind of a military area in Varanasi. The whole neighborhood is pretty clean, it is not so much crowded, both, with people, cars and everything else what is common in India. It is very safe to walk outside, almost no one will bother you, etc. Outside the hotel is a close by shopping mall with good food court. It is 5 min walk from the hotel.

However, the hotel needs to be renovated asap, in order to benefit from this location.

The rooms are spacious, but worn out, the floors, walls, old furniture etc.
The bathroom is totally malfunctioning with flush systems, old taps. Everything seems very much exploited and at the end of it's lifetime. The elevators are old.
Adding to this bad image is no free WiFi anywhere!! Instead, the highest rates for it of all the hotels visited on our trip.
The breakfast and the pool are OK.

Stayed at this place when we visited varanasi for an official trip, Hotel ideal tower is aptly named as its ideal for short business trips and vacations.. The hotel has an excellent location in the Cantt area of the city and all near visiting locations.. The staff is very courteous and are prompt in their effort..
The restaurant serves an excellent breakfast and has an extensive Ala-carte menu too.. The hotel boasts of a clean pool and a well maintained bar.. Would definitely visit the place again..

Room Tip: Corner suites are larger

this hotel is a good option for Varanasi. However, it may not full guests expectations. We had booked a junior suite. The hotel is located 2km outside the city center, which, in my opinion, it was a positive fact given the traffic and noise in the center. The reception guy told us, while coming with us to the room, "oh madame, this room is big, very big". Actually it was a big room but perfectly to be classified as a 2 stars European hotel. there were three windows, one of which with no glass but one side of a box; the second one led to a terrase, but you could not get into the terrase... you could only see it. Imagine how clean it was. The third one offered fantastic views to a courtyard with a goat and an old black bathtube. Despite the surroundings, the stay was normal, quite clean and comfortable. The bathroom was from the 80's, blue bath and toilet, it needed an urgent renovation. Nonetheless, it was clean.
The outdoor swimming pool was dirty, totally dirty, green water. Breakfast was ok but for lunch or dinner, I would recommend to go to Hotel Surya (main entrance, then left, and the first on the left, walk 50 meters) which offers a fabolous restaurant.

Stayed in this hotel from 13-15 Nov 2013 for a personal visit. The rooms are clean, well arranged and decorated. Provision for sunlight is also in the architect design.The property is well located and away from busy roads but very nearby to the visiting locations. Room service is good and so are the staff to serve you any moment. Time schedule is also followed. Resteurant have good buffet breakfast variety and very tasty grilled food for dinner . A visit to pool and massage parlour is refreshing. Best return for money in city like Varanasi.

Room Tip: Rooms on east side give good morning sun.

While we packed our bags and set afoot the train for a 10 hour journey from Delhi to Varanasi, our hearts ached and hoped that we find a place which would help us reminiscence the luxury of a more hospitality-oriented city. Gods be favouring, we were blessed!

The hotel was recommended by a friend of a friend who had heard about the place from another friend. The long chain was expected to distort the quality of the review, but when you hear that 'the place is just fantastic' from three connections down the line, it has got to be worth it.

On the outset, let me compliment the management committee - The hotel was being renovated (rather upgraded to its sister establishment next door); and the two days I stayed at here, I couldn’t even hear a distant hammer strike. It was superb - the way they handle the extra work - not an anomaly in sight. The only time I did come to know about it was when I ran into the owner in the lobby. Kudos!

The hotel entrance is good - hoisted and clear enough to avoid traffic and bottlenecks, and by my understanding, they have the biggest parking space outside on the strip - amongst the other bigger industry names.

The lobby is welcoming - with neat upholstery lining the furniture, it gives you that crisp and welcoming look that always pleases the eyes. With the reception fully equipped and well placed, the bell desk in reach and the elevators dotting the lobby's corner, the entrance is a welcome change from the chaos of the city. Trust me, you will miss the serenity once you are outside!

The rooms are just great! For the price they come at, they are well in place for all the luxuries you will be looking at - I spent a day each in a regular and a suite(reserve the suite for special occasions or head of joint families), and they were bang on the mark. Though being on opposite sides of the hotel, both of them had an amazing share of sunlight during the day. Another check in my list.

Room service is one of the most promising factors of this establishment. Dedicated, humble and prompt - they actually cater to the experience you would want out of a Hotel of such standing. Food – MY most prized requirement – was outstanding. Trust me when I say that you will have to look around for a while (if you are lucky) to find better food. There is a shopping mall a stone’s throw away, but I seriously didn’t bother to get out of my room. Ample space, fresh linen, upright service and exquisite sunlight was enough for me to walk out only for my field trips.

Highly satisfied with the place, I had to see what more these guys had to offer – and I stepped next door to Rivatas. Despite the price tag, I couldn’t resist but transfer my luggage there for the remaining one day – perhaps an experience best to be put up on the other hotel’s page.

I recommend a stay at the Ideal Tower - and perhaps a split to Rivatas if you fancy. But as a standalone unite too - A fantastic experience and my regards to the management and staff alike.

Room Tip: All rooms have a good share of sunlight, If travelling with parents\in joint families, do make sure...
