This place is a good pick if you don't want to be in the centre of Varanasi. You will need to take a tuk tuk to the ghats or other sites in the city.
The rooms are good. There's a small tv, ac, possibility to make coffee or tea, good beds with nice and clean blankets. The bathroomfloor is a bit slippery, watch out. The cleaningstaff can be a bit anoying, probably for a tip, but they're doing a good job.
We arrived at 5am, our room was booked from that evening, but in stead of waiting until noon, we could already check in and catch some sleep.
There's a nice green field with grass between the rooms and diningroom/swimmingpool, good for for example yoga. Breakfast is good, there are enough Western and Indian things to pick, it changes everyday.
The pool is geat and clean. There's a lot of staff, most of the time just being lazy, at least they're not staring at you while swimming. There's a place with shadow, but the pool is during the day in the bright sun. There are not enough beds to put your stuff and rest.
Dinner is excellent, but a bit expensive. I'd rcommend the mexican food, I really enjoyed it.
