There is one TripClues Travel agent who booked our hotel Lara about four months back. We were all senior Citizens and there was Five Couples of same age of friends. Through Bank Transfer , we booked Lara Hotel Five Deluxe Rooms. An advance was Paid for Rs.10000/- to TRip Clues and they sent Confirmed reservation of Five Deluxe rooms on and from 25/11/2022 for three days. Just two days prior to our visit on 25/11/2022, person acting as a representative of Lara Hotel phoned me and said, Lara Hotel will not be able to provide rooms as those rooms are already occupied. We the Sr citizens were surprised as to, last moment they are saying that the rooms will not be available although the rooms were booked in July'22 for 25 Nov'22. We had to take lot of troubles to find a suitable hotel in Varanasi. However, when asked for refund of Rs.10000/. They said by next day I will receive the refund. Reaching Varanasi, I contacted the travel agent over phone M/S TripClues Pvt Ltd, they said Refund is being processed and I shall get the refund by next day. We have returned back from Varanasi spending four days in another hotel, the refund has not yet come. Till today being 2/12/22 the refund has not come and now we felt they collected Rs.10000/- in a fraudulent manner. I have called at least 100 times to the representative of tripclues, every time they were not picking up the calls. Once or twice they picked up the call , and said my refund will be released today. That today has never come. My suggestion to the prospective travellers to Varanasi , please do not fall prey in any trap of Lara Hotel. I came to know this way Lara Hotel is earning money in fraudulent manner by appointing one fraud Travel Agent TripClue Private Limited

We booked directly 3 Super Deluxe Classis rooms from their website. Check-in was smooth as was provided rooms within 30min. There are some rooms with twin beds, book and confirm with them otherwise they can allocate the twin bed rooms. Provided with 1L bottle every day. Rooms were clean but very small compared the room category. Very less space left after the furniture and the luggage. Lift was working fine. AC was working but leaking in some rooms. Washroom was clean but have drainage problem. Provided with basic tea and toilet kits.. Free Wifi is available in common space. Room service was good. Overall the rooms need maintenance to be at par with the cost. The best part of the hotel is the location. If someone wants to stay near the busy Godowliya market then it is a good place. Restaurant food was not that good with the price they are charging. Better to eat in Kesari restaurant just opposite to it. Overall a okiesh kind of stay. Renovation needed for the rooms. For the time being can be avoided.

This is our third visit to the hotel. Location is wonderful. Homely behaviour of the staff. Noiseless rooms and very close to Vishwanath Temple and Añnapurna Temple. Situated in Godowlia very close to Dashaswamedh Ghat

Once a year we make a family visit to Varanasi, each one of us with different agenda. Ladies go for pilgrimage & shopping. I enjoy Samosa, Jalebi, Lassi & Rabri near Vishwnath Dwar on Dashwasmed Road. I also enjoy wide range of Vegetarian delight of Kesri Ruchikar Byanjan Restaurant on Dashwasmed Road. Sometimes I join the family upto Vishwanath Temple too. As we all know walking is the most reliable mode of transport in Varanasi (because of lowest per capita road space) - Hotel La-Ra India on Godowlia Chowk suits us best for doing all these activities on foot. Even boating from Dashwasmed Ghat is also walking 400m distance from the hotel. Varanasi never sleeps. At any hour of the day we can go out or walk in to Hotel La-Ra India after rudrabhishek or shopping, or boating or lunch / dinner. Thus I consider Hotel La-Ra India as my second home in Varanasi and Manager Mr. Sharma (more popularly Sharmaji) is our local guardian. He knows Varanasi like his palm and a very helpful person by nature. For any guidance we always consult him & found him to be most accurate so far. Even for finding the best time to visit Varanasi we consult him & then plan. In fact Hotel La-Ra India & Sharmaji are integral part of our second home in varanasi. Anybody anxious about sleep quality on Dashwasmed Road must carry earplug. Religious activity goes on round the clock in this area.

I have visited Hotel Lara India in the month of October 2013 at stayed there from October 17th to October 24th. Its a bit late to post my review at tripadvisor. But I think I should share my experience. The hotel is centrally located at Godowalia Crossing and Viswanath Mandir is only 2-3 minutes by walk. Before going there I have heard that it is difficult to reach there by auto. But it is not at all a problem. Due to to traffic restriction auto goes up to Benyabag and then one have to take rickshaw to go to Godowalia. We have stayed in a A.C room so can't tell about non A.C room but A.C rooms are clean, not very specious but moderate. The Hotel staffs are helpful, attentive, and for my young toddler even they manage to get boiled water for drinking. Bathrooms are clean with hot and cold water. The rooms have power backup in case of power failure. It has Aroma restaurant which is fully vegetarian. Though it is costly but if one can afford then the foods are good, tasty and the restaurant is extremely clean. Here also the staffs are very polite and cooperative. So overall it is very good place to stay at Varanasi for family tour.

Stayed here for four nights during Oct.14 to Oct. 18. We booked three rooms online, Deluxe, Super Deluxe and a Suite. Immediately after entering the hotel we had a bitter experience. The three-bedded Super Deluxe room was a two-bedded one and later they arranged a very ordinary camp bed to cope for the third one. Even we came to know that the hot water in the bathroom was not for 24 hours but only in the morning from 4 a.m. to 9 a.m. The manager at the reception, Mr. Sharma was very uncivilized in his behaviour. He even dared to say that he did not care if we write negative reviews about the hotel. Such attitude is very unprofessional as every customer should be important for the hotel staff. After the initial hiccup we stayed comfortably. Worth mentioning is the name of the floor in-charge Mr Singh who was very helpful and friendly. He even found out the lost wallet from the Deluxe room rendering utmort effort. The hotel rooms are small and with scopes of improvement everywhere. The hotel boys are smiling and helpful. The major pros is the location which is on the Dashashwamedh road at a stone's throw from Vishwanath temple and ghats.

The Hotel is located just near the Godwalia Chowk, a stone throw distance from the Kashi Viswanath temple and Dasaswamedh Ghat, the two main attractions of Kashi. The hotel rooms are clean even though a bit small. The Hotel authority take more care on upkeep of the rooms especially the AC machines. The food served in the restaurant were really tasty.

It is almost on godolia Chowk 600mtrs from dashashumeth ghat 400mtrs from Kashi vishwanath temple. Point to note that it is walking distance from Chowk and only 2 wheeler or cycle rickshaw can be used to reach between 9am to 9pm. Decently clean . Only issue we faced is that we were only given 4 tea sachets because it was a four beddedd room and they do not give more defeating the whole idea of providing a tea kettle in the room. Please carry them with you. We had booked suite room since the size mentioned was nice and it was of the size but the space was taken away with another double bed. We did not have opportunity to taste their food so cannot connect.

I have stayed at room no. 208 from 18th Jan'19 to 20th Jan'19 in a delux AC room though AC is not required in the month of January. Only cons is the size of the room is small but all other aspects are on pros side. The room has all the essential requirements even with a coffee maker. The housekeeping is outstanding as good as the room service. The behaviour of the staffs are excellent. The have a veg resturent with very good quality testy food though price is a little bit high compared to other food destination at Varanasi. Only one thing they need improvement is the lighting in the room is insufficient. You can't read in that light.
