Stayed 2 nights. Clean room, comfy bed. Within walking distance to the Ghats (about 15 min longer if you get distracted by the amazing culture 😀) tuk tuk a little quicker at around 100Rp, rickshaw same time 30 Rp.

This hotel is old older but very clean and comfortable. The staff are really helpful, the rooms are clean, beds are comfortable and it's only a 5 minute cyclo ride down to the Ghats. Very happy with this place. It had a restaurant which serves great food.

We enjoyed every bit of our stay at Dolphin. They offered us the parking space too and that was really convenient. We were happy with the reception and service quality. Rooms were clean and hot water available.

Unfortunately we had a bad experience at hotel dolphin, we had people trying to enter out to room on numerous occasions both in the night and day. Staff were unable to address our concerns appropriately. Also very far from the ghats- I recommend to stay near assi ghat.

The room is very small and bit dark (if the walls were painted on white would be better), the toilets very average but the staffs are super friendly and helpfull. The hotel hás a nice view to Ganges River and easy to get around in Varanasi. The food is always fresh!!! Good price, worth value for accomodation.
