It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli, other nearest pickup point is Agarwal radio also known as Shivala crossings which is approx 200 meters walk only. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk).

Good hospitality. The location is excellent. The staff is very polite and accommodative especially for kids. Food is delicious. 2 days stay was worth spent. Hosts Krishna Gopal Pandey and Uday ji are worth mentioning.

Everything was good. A bit overpriced but location was good. They spoiled it on checkout. They asked me to check my baggage for a missing hand towel. Don't they understand that if someone pays a whooping sum of approx 10000 for 17 hours stay, it's not for a hand towel. My wife was asked to go to the room again and check if she had misplaced it somewhere. My whole trip was spoiled due to this and I had no answers to my wife why I chose this property. Disastrous behaviour. It's day 4 today and i can't get over that incident.

This is a spectacular place to stay. Right adjacent to Shivala ghat. The hotel staff were very courteous, my room had great views of the ganga, food was delicious and i had a fantastic visit. Please dont miss out on the boat ride with Sanjay. Had a ride across the river while Sanjay explained the religious and cultural significance of Kashi. Ganga aarati was the highlight of the boat ride.

I highly recommend the Suryauday Haveli hotel, directly on the Ghat, in Varanasi. The atmosphere is very calm, one feels beautiful connections to something larger, divine. I also thank the GM and Brahma Kumar very much for their helpfulness and professionalism.

My family and I had a great stay at the Amritara Suryauday Haveli. The food was delicious and the staff was very friendly. This hotel is within walking distance of many of the cities' ghats. The Ganga River guide, Sanjay, is amazing. He is very knowledgeable about the area and explained its history very well. I highly recommend him!

Tucked away in Shivala Ghat, this property has been fully restored with modern amenities while keeping the integrity of the heritage designs and decor. The balcony and terrace offer great views of the ghats as well as the city. The kitchen turns out delicious meals - being a meat eater I was apprehensive of the “only vegetarian” menu, but I did not miss the meat. One must try the Maharaja Thali! And last, but not the least - the staff! The hospitality team is fantastic…..polite, well turned out and eager to be of service. Had a fantastic stay, and if I am ever back in this neck of the woods, I would not consider any other hotel!

With a stunning view of the Ganges from the hotel, a food that mesmerises your taste buds (do try their paneer butter masala), and a super cordial staff (esp Krishna Gopal Pandey), Amritara Suryouday Haveli is a must stay at the oldest living city in the world - Varanasi!
