Conveniently located 5 minutes walk from the Ganges river and 10 minutes from the main ghat. Our clean and comfortable guesthouse offers an oasis from the hustle and bustle of the city. Relax on the rooftop, in one More of our lounge areas, or in the cafe after a busy day of sightseeing. Our guesthouse offers you a home away from home. Less
