This Homestay is managed by an Indian family and those who like to stay with a family and share the culture and taste freshly made home cooked vegetarian food would like it here very much.A traditional Indian house built in 1936, with complete teakwood work and antique hand carving workmanship on the doors, windows, decorations and furniture. Lots of open space for natural sunlight and air, and a beautiful small garden. Beautiful seat in garden in the front.

Very Clean and tidy. Calm residential location. No traffic or sounds, noise and dust neither. Secured place. Room Service available in minutes. Staff and the owners are kind, courteous and dignified. Breakfast and food is very hygiene, served with respect and dedication. Purified Water is free. Perhaps 0.25 kms for shopping. Medical shop is at the end of the Street. Spencer Super Market, Reliance Digital, Bata Show room etc are near by. Hardly a km from the Nandi Statue of Viswanath Mandir. Riksha wala takes Rs.40 to drop nearby Mandir/Dasashwamedh Ghat. Ideal for couples, friends and families. I like to stay here in my future trips.

This homestay is a very cosy place. We had a wonderful experience staying here. Mr Harish, his son and the staff here are very courteous. His wife is a fabulous cook. The morning breakfast spread is a real treat to await for. The beautiful decor in his dining area and the home cooked tasty food will certainly make one visit the place again. Location wise also no reason to complain. A small garden within the premises adds to it's beauty and provides space to relax after a tiring day sight seeing.

We were a group of 8 members with 2 above 75 years.Accomodated at the 3 bhk serviced apartment. The flat is very well maintained and has fully functioning kitchen.We were welcomed with amazing hospitality of Harish ji, there was no issues with early check in and late check out. The staffs were also helpful and last but not the least, one must have the food provided by the homestay. The food is prepared by Harishji's wife, it is a absolute bliss for a stumptuos meal.

We stayed at this Homestay from Nov1/22 to Nov6/22 We were vwry happy with thefood , clealiness and general hospitality of Mr Harish ji and his wife. The food was prepared by Mrs Harish and it was just like home. We occupied the two groundfloor rooms which were spacious and comfortable. Three of the four in our group were between the age of 73 & 80. Though the dining room was on the first floor they arranged to serve the food in the room for one of us who had difficulty in going to the dining room. When our return flight was scheduled to early morning Harishji arranged for a transport at 4.30 AM. I reccomend this plaqce to the " Value for money"traveller

My mother, 72 Y, stayed here in September 2022. She was travelling solo. The hosts, Mr. Harish and her wife Malika, were very helpful and the atmosphere of the property was clean and homely. During her stay, my mother had an accident at Assi Ghat. Mr. Harish and Malika had administered first aid, helped her in every possible way till she boarded her train to Kolkata. This is an unusual gesture we are not accustomed with. I am really grateful to them for their help and support.

Four of us stayed at the Homestay for two nights. Everything was excellent regarding our stay: the hospitality, the cleanliness, the location and the comfort. The food served at the Homestay is delicious. You can count on Mr Harish for anything you need! For instance, I needed to buy some medicines - he gave me a ride to the pharmacy!

One of the most homely and comfortable homestay experience in Varanasi. Location is convenient to the ghats and markets around and still the area is peaceful without any traffic or crowd noise. Highly recommended for families. Their food is amazing and owner is also extremely helpful with all the guests needs even outside of stay requirements.
