Hotel is in a small alley and the staff are very rude. They did not give one extra pillow for us and when asked they said they dont have. Food is boring and what ever food you order it will taste the same and the masala is constant. Food is cooked in a small hut on the terrace, unclean environment...

Located very near to the Assi ghat, the hotel remains accessible by car (which is convenient if you have some luggage…) and although there's no parking space on site, there's a parking (INR 50 / 3h unfortunately) not far. This is useful if, for example, you travel through different cities with the same car / driver through your journey. The...

Ganesha is a very good place to stay. Even better if you're travelling with a partner to share the (already very good) room price. 1.) The Building & Employees Hotel Ganesha is a 4-5 storied building without any special architecture. It has a spacious lobby and is very clean inside. The hallways and stairs are lighted warmly, the doors look...

i saw a lot of mixed reviews about this hotel... Some good and some bad... I booked becuase it was cheap and in a good location. I was VERY happy with the hotel and staff. It is safe and short walk to assi ghat. I think the bad reviews must have been from other local businesses as they are untrue....

Came highly recommended on TripAdvisor so thought we'd check it out. As expected was a good experience. Cheap and convenient pickup from the airport arranged by the hostel, good location, clean rooms with hot water, helpful staff and 2 minutes walk from Assi Ghat. Best of all would have to be the tour guide Ajay, who went out of his...

Really nice place, staff helpful. Ajay, the guide, was such a god. Old Varanasi is such a maze! If you're taken to the cremation ghat, be aware that your 'guide' at the ghat will ask you to buy wood for the poor and then make you feel bad when you don't hand over 1000's of rupees. Don't give them anything,...
