The rooftop view overlooking the lake and the city is one of the better in Varanasi. The restaurant is alright with good live music in the evening. However, the rooms are extremely basic and unclean, reception staff come across as rude and very unhelpful. Cheap enough, but still overpriced for what you get

The place needs work. The rooms I was shown were over priced and horrible. I found a much nicer and cheaper guest house around the corner, Sankatha. The place could be good with effort but it's dull and depressing. I am unsure how it made it into the lonely planet

Actually I chose this hotel only for the view. It was one of the worst I´ve stayed during my trip around India. Rooms are unclean, walls dirty, the towers must be at least 5 years of using. Front desk dark and staff not prepared to give the guest the minimal information about the complicated streets of Varanasi. On the first...

I wouldn't recommend it at all. I had to change my room because a window was broken and mosquitoes were all over the room (you must think there a lot because is close to Ganges), the staff is a bit rude sometimes and they insist in taking you to the gifts stores that the hotel owner has. And, most important,...

A great budget guest house with Wifi, on the banks of the Ganges, in the heart of bustling Varanasi with amazing views & incredibly friendly, helpful staff. Can't thank Prakash (manager) and Manoj enough for going the extra mile to make sure our stay was an excellent one.

Good location near lalita ghat, affordable prices, decent rooms, pretty good restaurant upstairs with a great view. Rough and ready but the price is average and it's nowhere near as bad as some we saw in Varanasi! Does have wifi and occasionally hot water. Definitely fine as a base to explore. Has Sitar player at night on the roof and...

We stayed here after our first two options were unavailable or too pricey. It's location down a few dark alleyways is daunting at first, but it's in the heart of Old Varanasi City and very close to the burning ghat. If the craziness of Varanasi becomes too much, the hotel's rooftop restaurant is the perfect place to escape, with an...

Followed instruction from the Lonely Planet guide (should be taken out). The staff are helpful when they want to get money out of you by taking you to shops and earning commission rates but not so much when your bed is broken so your having to sleep on the floor or when you want them to phone you a taxi...

It's a good option for budget traveling. The room rates are very affordable. The rooms are clean but can be a bit noisy in the morning. We stayed in a room next to the stairs. This might be a reason for the noise when people walks up and down. However, we didn't have problem to fall asleep at night. When...

This is a budget guest house in the middle of Varanasi. It can be quite noisy as the building is not very good isolated, and is located in the chaotic streets. It was a OK stay compared to the price we payed, I think around 1250rupees for a double room per night. The bed is quite good actually, and the...
