The place is confortable, it's true, the family is really nice, from the grandpa to the charming niece. After sleeping in several guest houses all over India, I must say this one had peculiar features that I appreciated: the white... More

The Host, Mr Misraji was very helpful, walking us down to Assi Ghat, a 5 min walk, and assisting with airport pick up and delivery right to door. He was very helpful arranging onward travels and...

The owner and his wife are a very friendly and decent couple. The place is clean and secure, in a good neighbourhood. Staying there is pleasant, they are very fair and helpful. It basically feels like spending a weekend at your grandparents house.

The guest house is very nice with good rooms and views of the river ganga. Very hospitable owners with requests and friendly area. Being next to assi ghat it's a good location to take a day to walk up the river visiting all the small ghats finally reaching the main ghat and temple.

The very kind owner picked us up from the main road because no cars can go there and it was dark. We had a nice chat and he showed us our room. Spacious, clean and seems recently remodeled. He gave us a room upgrade for free, which was really generous! He even offered to make us free breakfast. He also... More
