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.

It's basic but it's clean. The biggest reason to book this guest house is the view. If you can afford it, spend a little more money to get a room with a balcony. If you can't, you can still see the river from their dining area.

At Scindia Guesthouse you are on top of it and you still have peace and distance. From your balcony you look out on the Scindia Ghat and the adjacent Manikarnika Ghat - the most important place for Hindu cremations - and through the door on the Ganges side you are directly in the hectic ghats. You cannot wish for a nicer place to be in this extreme, intriguing city. The rooms and restaurant are basic but adequate, the people are extremely friendly and helpful and the food is well prepared and hygienic. A great location as a base to explore the unlikely world of Varansi. And after a few days you’ll even find the way to the guesthouse in the labyrinth of alleyways ...
