The hotel is nothing exciting but we found it clean and the restaurant team were very warm and friendly. TV did not work in our room but was 'fixed' several times by room staff. Small shopping mall a short walk to the right of the hotel as you are leaving the front door.

Just inside the door to the left, before you get to reception, is a shop with 2 guys who were very warm, helpful and a real pleasure to do business with. The shop although small has alot of interesting items for sale and very good prices; so good that it was hardly worth bartering!

The two guys would have to be the nicest 'hotel shop' staff that we met in our 4 weeks in India - oh how I wish I could get back there someday; they treated us like friends :-)

We booked and paid for two "deluxe" room for two nights after seeing that this received higher ratings than the Gateway/Taj and other more well known properties. But this is not a "4-star" hotel. We arrived to find both our rooms with dirty sheets (dirt and hairs in the bed) and urine on the toilet seats. My wife had to go to the store and purchase cleaning products before she was willing to sleep there.

The AC blew air, but not cold air. Thankfully it was winter and we didn't need it too much.

Service was OK and people were friendly, as they are in most of India.

Varanasi is a tougher destination due to the age, grit, and grime of the city. Our visit was much more "in your face" and crowded than in other places we visited in our 3 weeks in India. A cool, clean, quiet hotel would have been wonderful, but we did not get this with the Ideal. At US$65 it wasn't cheap and next time we'd look elsewhere (e.g. Gateway, Radisson, etc.) even if their reviews are not as good, the overall quality of the property is in another league.

Even though we'd paid for two nights we were disgusted enough after the first night that we caught an early flight and flew to Delhi to avoid another dismal night there.

Its ideally located. JHV Mall is walking distance from this hote. I had stayed for about 4 days, the stay wasn't that pleasurable, but the rooms were really great, the ambience of the hotel is not that extra ordinary, that should be told off. But he cooperation of the hotel people towards the guest was appreciable. River Varuna flows back side of this hotel so in evening time one can go on the bank of river and pass his time there. I will like to stay in this hotel again.

This a nice place to stay, count on its location or its service.
I was there for a party and enjoyed every bit of it. Our party was organised in a big hall inside the hotel, where DJ was also set up. Magnificient paintings were put up on the walls.
The hall had beautiful lighting arrangements which made the party lively. We enjoyed the place a lot and i would certainly add a positive reference for the place.

Stayed: March 2008
