I stayed for one day, at Scindia guest house. Had very comfortable stay. Location very suitable for visiting all important ghat and temples. Service very good, but don't expect too much (e.g. tea / coffee maker in room, approach to ghat unclean - dogs / cows and their poops blocking the road) Off course this is out of control of guest house management. One you enter guest house, it's all nice, homely atmosphere.

We recently had a great experience staying at Scindhia Guest House. The room was clean, the staff was quick to take care of any issues It is a family owned business. They can provide all your meals upon request. They served delicious vegan and vegetarian meals. Our room had a great view of the ganges. One thing you need to know is that there is no access for a car. Walking and/or climbing about 60 steps is necessary. The hotel staff can help carry your baggage. The hotel has boats which you can use for additional charges. Overall, we had a great experience.

It is as many say simple but clean and good food. Best chapati so far :) When were her Varanadi was cold so needed to sleep with clothes on, no heating in the room. It is a bit tough to get up the hotel, high steps

I last stayed at the Scindhia 15 years ago and, just like then, can give it a rave review. The set up, furnishings etc are fairly basic, but everything else is absolutely exceptional; location, views, food, variety of tours, security and ESPECIALLY the staff/service. The owner/manager speaks perfect English and is tireless in his pursuit of customer satisfaction, and his support crew are honest, faithful and hard working. If you’re not in need of frills, and you’re happy to be based North of the centre but still in the thick of the action, this is ABSOLUTELY a great option and unlikely to disappoint.
