We booked for 3 days for my family but extented our stay for 3 weeks. Owner Vikasji is a very good person who has very high human values. I fell sick and he was very considerate and helpful to get me the right Doctor, he guided us to many hidden temples of Kashi. Food is tasty and you will feel at home. Room tariff is very reasonable. I will highly recommend this hotel for everyone.

Very peaceful staying and good accommodation according to price. Ganga view is available from there. Staff and owner are very helpful and cooperative. But bathroom is small. They have their own restaurant in the basement .Foods are very tasty.

My first impression about this place was awesome because the owner Mr. Vikas was himself waiting for us at the Godowliya circle to receive. While entering the lodge after criss crossing through the famous micro lanes of Varanasi I read their welcome note that said "our lodge is small, but hearts are big". After spending 4 nights there I have experienced the true meaning of it. Location was spectacular, right on the Meer ghat, with clear view of the mighty Ganges from room ( I stayed in room 1) and all the other ghats are walkable by the bank of the river. I have stayed in a 5 star hotel in my previous visit in 2009 - away from all the hustle bustle. But this time I wanted a simple stay on the ghats with the real feeling of this 5000 years old city. Sun Rise lodge is ideal for backpackers and budget travellers. I used to roam around the ghats, taken bath (& holy dip) in the Ganges just below the lodge, enjoyed the Ganga Aarti prayers every evening, would sit in the open balcony for hours. Mr. Vikas & his team helped us in every aspect from sight- seeing plans to holy darshan of lord Viswanath temple. Their in-house restaurant provided delicious vegetable meals. I have brought back such a fulfilling & enriching experince that I will remain forever in memory. Will visit again.
