Its a decent hotel, the breakfast menu can be better, a very limited selection of items. What works here is the travel desk, the person working Rajesh is a superb guy,he patiently listens to what you want to see and then gives you a personal guide to work with your schedule and

Arrived at the hotel in the early morning of 15 February 2015 without booking. But Gyanendra in the reception was very helpful. In fact, he provided me access to the hotel wi-fi so that I can book a room from the hotel itself. After staying for two days, I will check out

Hello: we are two adults and plan to visit Varanasi in November this year and according to most of the good reviews except some bad reviews, were thinking of staying at this hotel. What is the Buffet breakfast time and what is included in the breakfast? (any western dishes like eggs to order, waffles, toast, butter, jam, muffins, pastries, fresh fruits, fresh fruit juices, etc) and indian dishes like: paratha and some type of curry or dosa or poori etc? we are just worried about HOT WATER ISSUE in the bathroom? Does hot water comes 24 hours in bathroom? Are all your rooms refurbished/renovated? we are planning to stay at one of your premium room. Is there a bed side night lamp, tea/coffee maker in the room, free bottle waters in the room? (how many free bottle waters are given per day per room?) Is there an A/C in the room? Is there a safe in the room? How about FREE WIFI in the room? Do you have generator in case if the power goes off? It would be great to get your kind answers to our queries. Guests who have stayed at this hotel and also hotel staffs/management can please reply us? How much is the charge to pick us from the airport ? (pick up/drop off) Can we have Nayla Kadir's e mail address so we can write more details to her personally please? Thanks a million once again. with best regards from: LALANIS P.S. Do you have buffet dinner or a la carte menu? Is your food at breakfast and dinner spicy? ( we like mild taste) Is there a SAFE in the room? Thanks!

They are very nice and accommodating. As long as you let them know at the front desk there shouldn't be any problems.

I traveled earlier this year (March 2017). Had an evening flight to Delhi from Varanasi. We took the hotel vehicles to the airport. It took us around 40 min. But I’d keep an hour just to be safe. Hope that helps!

"Don’t get a room on the top floor; I believe they have the worst facilities."
"Consider this as a homely hotel with limited amenities. People are friendly and that makes up for rest. Rooms are decent where we stayed"
"Premium room with balcony was well worth the cost."
"Just ask the staff"
"check out the rooftop lounge!"
US$ 46 - US$ 96 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
