We are doing backpacking for some month in Asia, have seen a lot of hostels/Hotels in India. Enough for a couple of days to see the most of Varanasi. Nice restaurant on the rooftop with a good view over ganges and the ghats.

Rahul Guest House is a decent place, but nothing great to boast about. The room we were staying is facing the river. The location is OK and and is a calm place as it is in a so called residential place. But is 4 Km away from the Vishwanthji temple and the main town and every time you end up...

My friends and I stayed for a few days in November. We were welcomed late at night by the manager and staff who helped us with our luggage and settled us in our rooms. We were all impressed with our rooms, some of which looked over the river. The rooms are all comfortable and nicely designed, the hot water showers...

This hotel is off the main stretch in Varanasi. It's next to the Ganges but very far down river. It means you are away from the crazy busy city. Although it takes half an hour from train station I thought it was worth it. It was peaceful, quiet and family run. Reception were helpful and gave us the best boat...

I had the chance to stay here during off-season. They gave me a very good rate. The room was nice, very nice for Indian standard. Service was friendly. It just takessome time for delivery. In offseason they dont seem to have all ingredients in the kitchen. That is alright

We were not overly impressed with our stay at Rahul's Guest House nor greatly disappointed either. The room was a bit grungy with an AC that didn't work and a few too many spiders. However, the facilities were generally clean, we slept well enough even during Holi, and the rooftop restaurant food was good, the staff were very gracious, and...

A place you would instantly feel at home...small ...well managed....basic..clean...tasteful... whatever minimum decor done does not clash with your aesthetic senses...dishes offered are basic but tasty and almost like home cooked food....but the real high points are its location, which is bang on the Ganges with the terrace cafe giving a clear view of the river and the crescent river...

The best thing of this hotel is the restaurant! The chef Joy and the waiter manage the restaurant as 5 star! They are the best!!! The room is overrated comparate with cleaness and facilities. The roof top is not available on the evening cause of many insects. The sink doesn't flush but nobody come to fix it.

Location is fantastic and the family owners and kitchen staff are very courteous and attentive to your needs. Rooms and the bathroom needs updating and could do with new and modern furniture. Food was ok, nothing much to comment. Hope to see some updating and improvements to attract foreign tourists.

This guesthouse has all the conditions to be one of the best in India ! !BUT - dear family who owns it: you really ; really need to shape up!!!: The view from the roof top is breath taking; but service in restaurant is almost non existing- the menu card is so dirty that you hardly want to open it;...
