It's basic but it's clean. The biggest reason to book this guest house is the view. If you can afford it, spend a little more money to get a room with a balcony. If you can't, you can still see the river from their dining area.

the views from the room are great, you are overlooking the burning bodies, so watching that part of the culture was very interesting. The monkeys visiting you was all a part of it too. Shared book to read for my travels was nice as well. this is a basic place, but the location and views is what sets it apart. It is worth the climb.

The property is not reachable by car. It is close to the burning Ghat. The manager appears to be very helpful but when you ask for something - like can we get a packed breakfast because we leave early- he was not keen to assist. BUT We did get a packed toasted sandwich with hardboiled eggs on the day of departure .Breakfast each morning- .No fruit and weak coffee with egg and toast- it is complimentary... so I guess I should not mention it... but rather pack your oats so easy. The boat trips the hotel arrange was Rs 150 per person- which was good price- you pay cash. You have to give your key in at reception and ASK them to clean your room daily- they do not do it if you do not ASK. So
No kettle in the room and no coffee or tea. It might be because the hotel was quote empty that the service levels were down. But I will not stay here again.

It was a nice experience staying at this place that has homely atmosphere and warm staff .
Like a view from atop mountain it smoothens all the troubles a guest has to undergo climbing 55 steps from the ghat to it's reception and then another 50 plus steps to the room depending which floor one is staying .
Food is simple view from it's restaurant excellent .
Downside , high tariff and not even a complimentary water bottle for the guests .
Oasis amongst chaos .
Wifi good .

Dear Pranab. There are no parkingfacilities. And you can not drive all the way because the roads are too narrow. My suggestion is not to take your vehicle, take the train! The rooms with balcony all faces the Ganges.
