100% value is there. Hospitality, services , cleanliness et are excellent. Though they lack somewhat in food variety but that may be due to local culture and taste. Rest view was nice from hotel and rest we all know that varanasi is itself a diversed place.

The hotel is located in the city area and approx 3 km from the famous vishwanath temple and some ghats. Very nice and luxurious ambience. Spacious lawns, good swimming pool and above all the very comfortable rooms. If meal are not included in tariff, you may choose to eat outside cos food is too costly here. Overall great stay
