Great location, near one of the oldest and busiest crematories in Varanasi.The rooms are very comfortable and clean. Water supply is not a problem. The hotel manager is fabulous and warm and helpful and great! So the rest of the staff. Don´t miss the home-made food! Second time there, and would happily go back !

Varanasi can be a rough place, so finding a good hotel/guest house is important. The best 2 things about Scindhia are the owner and the location. First off, Kush, the owner was fantastic. Very welcoming with a ton of useful information and ready to help out with anything we might have needed, big or small. Honestly, that made a big...

Most of the rooms at Scindhia Guest House look out over the Ganges, and it is close to the main burning ghat. The rooms are clean, with TV, AC and fridge, hot water in the bathroom and a balcony, at a price. There are also simpler rooms. Kush, the manager, and Asish, his assistant, are both very helpful, which takes...

There are lots of hotels claiming to have ghat view but most only have partial view or only one or two rooms. Scindhia has several rooms right on the ghat with a fantastic view. The room is a decent size, super clean and while not luxurious, perfectly adequate (fridge, ac, warm water, tv, clean linens, etc.). The restaurant is somewhat...

Kush is a lovely host and does everything to help. We had booked three nights here which turned in to two as we had to leave early, which we advised upon checkin but unfortunately we had no offers of getting the third night refunded which was disappointing. We organised a boat trip for two of us which cost 1000 rupees...

It was our first trip to Varanasi. We found the manager Kush and the staff very helpful with ready suggestions about what to visit and where to eat. They do not push any advise on you, just suggest. The room we occupied was rather small and congested but i'd give anything for the unobstructed view of the river that we...

Kush and dad (Mr Bharman) run the establishment with efficiency and pride. Rooms are spacious and the balcony over the Ganges River is such a bonus. Kush is an expert on Varanasi. Dinner at Scindhia is a must - varied menu and excellent food. Don't be fooled by the outside impressions. Close to everything that needs to be seen and...

This is the perfect location, steps away from the Ganges river, next to Manikarnika Ghat and a 10 minute walk from Dashashwamedh Ghat. This is a family run hotel, the manager is very nice and helpful and is always making sure you are happy and you have what you need. We organized the sunrise/sunset Ganges boat ride through him and...
