I was quite surprised when i entered my room and opened the curtain, i had a view on some arico unit. So avoid having a room on the first floor, ask for 2nd or higher floor. quite clean and spacious rooms.

Stayed at this hotel as part of a group tour. The hotel is located opposite the railway station which is helpful if coming off a long journey, but located quite far away from the main attractions. The hotel itself is relatively modern, with a clean and spacious room. The negatives however far outweigh the positives. The staff were uninterested and...

Walking into the cool reception after a long hot train ride is a great welcome to this hotel. Excellent Thai spa on 6th floor and the ground floor restaurant is excellent. It has a good variety of different foods: American, British, Chinese, Italian and Indian too. Somnath and Rajiv are particularly helpful. Rooms are very clean and good value for...

The hotel was clean, bathroom also clean, towels and sheets in good conditions. As said in other reviews the hot water is temperamental but being so hot in India it was nice. After the chaos that is Varanasi, this hotel was fairly nice, good food also.

Arrived at Varanasi train station after a rather scary 14 hour journey. The hotel is literally opposite the station across a busy noisy road. They have obviously spent money on reception rather than the rooms, as my room was grotty. The bathroom was old, dirty and just nasty, we also had to ask for towels as we were only provided...

I stayed here as part of a tour for 2 nights. The reception desk and all staff members working there were not only completely incompetent but also extremely rude and dismissive of their customers. Every hotel enquiry or issue was treated as your problem not theirs and often you were completely ignored when standing in front of the 3+ staff...

Good location, nice customer service, medium range hotel. The restaurant is good for any meal you want, we ate there frequently. The front desk is accommodating. Laundry service is available and is inexpensive. Rooms are comfortable and hot water is on request.

Hotel City Inn was what I would call a very basic establishment. Clean (but dingy) room, functioning air conditioning. Showers were cold and the bathroom flooded easily. The breakfast buffet was a few steps up from abysmal but the a la carte menu was fantastic -- we ordered a delicious meal to our room at 8pm (fresh garlic butter naan,...
