chandra p wrote a review 25 Jan
We stayed at Stay Banaras between Jan 21-25, 2023. It was like an oasis amidst the hustle and bustle of the streets of Banaras. The location was convenient. The approach to this small boutique hotel is non-descript, which makes the property seem almost magical when you get into it. The room we stayed was compact, but with all the amenities, including piping hot water on tap, Fridge, heating kettle, and TV. The room overlooked a garden and café, very tastefully set up with comfortable tables and chairs under a canopy of old trees, and pebbled flooring. The beauty of the outdoors was magnified by the unobtrusive presence of a beautiful cat and her two kittens that made the atmosphere something that no fancy big hotel can provide. The hotel has other wonderful qualities. Perhaps the best part was the hospitality, responsiveness and efficiency of the hotel staff, led by the one-of-a -kind Rohit Tiwari. He was always accessible, and helped us in innumerable ways, from suggesting places to see, arranging our trips to the ghats and tickets for the Kashi Vishwanath darshan, and ideas for bargaining for best prices in the markets. The buffet breakfast has a wide range of food for different tastes, including Italian pastas, south and north Indian breakfast items (like semiya upma, idli, uthappam, kachori, alu parathas, puris) in addition to the usual fare of eggs and cornflakes and sandwiches. The quality was great too, as was the efficiency of the restaurant staff led by Ms. Mitali and Rahul. The room cleaning staff (Kush and Ramashree) were prompt and efficient, as was the food room service team including Anil. The one aspect that could be improved is to sound-proof the rooms better, and discourage hotel guests from talking too loudly in corridors and common areas. That said, we will unhesitatingly recommend Stay Banaras to anyone who visits Banaras.

I have stayed in many places all over India and Stay Banaras is by the far the best. From the moment I arrived I felt welcomed as a guest. Those who have travelled India will know how tiring it can be navigating your day here. Stay Banaras was a retreat from it all. No request was too big, the staff are all friendly, the breakfast and restaurant food can’t be faulted, the rooms clean, overall a home away from home. Location wise, it may be away from the Ghats, but it’s nice to escape the hustle and bustle, with the added bonus that taxis and tuk tuks can take you straight to the front door.

Our stay here was truly amazing! Rohit , Mitali , security guard, restaurant staff gave an excellent service throughout our stay here for a week. I would highly recommend this place which is comfortable, friendly, welcoming, completely safe. The breakfast was delicious and the restaurant food was excellent! We loved the mater paneer , garlic Nan , pizza, noodles and so much more. Thank you to all of the staff at Stay Banaras for helping us plan our holiday and we covered Varanasi, Prayagraj, Gaya and Bodh Gaya. Such a memorable experience. Jyoti and Dakshesh Rajdev wishes to thank everyone for going out of their way to make our stay memorable, enjoyable and special. Great customer service and experience.

The hotel is a very nice experience. Rooms are simple but clean. All amenities are as described - hot water, WiFi etc. They provided electric room heaters for winter. Staff was very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant was the highlight - great food, great ambiance, great staff. Location is good. Not exactly close to ghats but way to get around.

It was a mesmerising stay, exactly how you should feel in Banaras that is such an holy place, stay banaras, as the name suggests makes you feel you’re in banaras. I can’t describe the feeling, but can try. The feeling is of that comfort zone you won’t find anywhere else in the world, feeling you’re blessed, enjoying the best delicacies, feeling the holiness and blissfulness in the air itself. It’s magical. Stay Banaras really takes care of their guests in such a way that they feel homely and special at the same time. Loved the ambience, the food and no match for this vibe!
