I have stayed in this guesthouse many times. It is excellent as it has beautiful views of the Ganges and the staff are the most helpful you could have.....no exaggeration! The rooms are simple but comfortable and the food very good. Showers are hot. Assi Ghat is a relaxing area of Varanasi to stay in and Sahi River View is...

Taxi from airport dropped us around corner and finding the place was a bit difficult as it was up an alley, under part of the building, up some rather daunting stairs - but once inside it was fine - charming chap on desk - nice clean but basic room - beds and bedding great - bathroom clean - verrandah outside...

Sahi River View felt like a calm oasis in an exciting city. Clean and comfortable with an attentive staff. Several sitting areas provided good nooks to sit and read or relax after exploring city. Great location for walking (or boating) anywhere. Only drawback was morning yoga on the Ghat, amplified for the whole neighborhood to hear. I would recommend this...

This place is well-located right off Assi Ghat, but the otherwise basic accommodations are too expensive at 900 rupees per night. We could justify the cost somewhat upon staff assurances that breakfast was included -- unfortunately, not until the bill arrived did staff specify that "complimentary breakfast" refers to just plain toast and jam, not the bulk of the items...

A little expensive but very helpful staff, clean rooms, and fantastic location. Very close to Assi Ghat. Staff are very attentive. I'd recommend it. We had an enjoyable stay. The rooms had lots of windows which I like.

Located next to assi ghat, in a very quite place. The rooms are clean and the owners are very nice. Will assist at everything. They have rooms with Ac although it's not a must. The Ac is very loud so you can't sleep with it anyway.

This is really one of the best guest houses in India. I've been to the south of India in 2011 for 2 months and there were only a few guest houses like this. I think the owner is one of the most honest Indian people I've learned to know.

Stayed there 12 years ago. Came back for 3 nights. What a let down! Place is run down and neglected. Staff unhelpful and lazy. Location is good. But not worth the price. And free breakfast?? Stale toast and butter thrown at you at your table. Service is deplorable. For what they charge they should clean the place up and maybe...

Fantastic place to stay, all staff super friendly and helpful with everything, always ready to help. They accommodated us when we wanted to change rooms and their food was really good. Especially recommend the aloo paratha which is tasty, filling and also cheap. The cook also showed me how to make this simple dish when asked! Both the guys at...

I stayed here for two nights last week. As a single female traveller I was a little unsure of the best place to stay, but fell very luck in finding the Sahi Guest House. Excellent position with views to the river. Clean, comfortable and good food. I would recommend this place to other single travellers - and travellers in general....
