The Great River is not exactly what you might expect however it is amazing and impressive. The ghats are stone steps which are covered when the river is in flood. Our highlight was the 5pm trip on the river to see the ceremony at 6pm. Take the offer of the boat at 5. The service was great and they allowed...

I travelled with a group of friends to Varanasi and we stayed for four nights at the Suryauday. The location is fantastic. You can sit on the balcony and watch the life of the Ganges river. There are people bathing and washing their clothes. The water buffalo come for a swim in the mornings right in front of the hotel....

I had a wonderful stay at Suryauday Haveli. The staff went out of their way to make me feel at home. The room was very well kept. The rooftop terrace of the building is a charming place to see the constant activity along the riverfront. Despite being right on the riverfront within the lanes of the old city of Varanasi,...

Our guide took us through back alleyways to this amazing place. It overlooks the Ganges River and we watched the locals wash clothes and use the river for their baths. t Buffalo wandered into the river amongst the many boats you can hire as you would a gondolier in Venice!

I can't understand the review that says this is in a "painful location". The alternative is to be in a big tourist hotel on the outskirts of Varanasi and be bussed in and out each day. If you want to see the ghats and life besides the Ganges this is the hotel to be in. The level of service was...

Very welcoming and attentive staff. We enjoyed our stay here , having a room facing onto the river was the icing on the cake. The food and entertainment were great too. Probably the highlight of our trip to India.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. 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. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
