We stayed at the Rashmi Guest House from 25-27 February and had a wonderful stay. The staff led by Faizan, a taxi was dispatched to collect us from the airport. The view is worth it over the Ganges and across to the far bank and sand bar with a myriad of stalls, camel rides etc to see. Meals were easily available at the Dolphin restaurant directly in front of the hotel with a good range of veg and non veg meals and drinks. Arriving in Varanasi late afternoon to discover we were metres from the Dashashwamedh Ghat the evening Aarti ceremony (the ritual of putting Mother Ganga to sleep), we wandered down the steps of the Ghat and felt this is India. Then meandered our way down to the ceremony and were engulfed by the Hindu religious culture. We offered our prayers to our family by laying flowers and candles on Mother Ganga.. The next day after our tour we were able to hire a boat and the oarsman was very adept at this job, he rowed us up to the Manikarnika Ghat (Burning Ghat), then down the river past several Ghats and meandered our way back to our starting point. It was a special feeling floating along on Mother Ganga, even though there were literally hundreds of boats on the river you did not feel confined at all. We concluded our day again watching the evening Aarti ceremony and having a much better understanding of the ritual that evening. Varanasi you really need more than one day of adventuring to see what she has to offer. Thank You so much to Faizan Ahmad +91 77060 64203

It is worth getting the hotel to pick you up from the airport. There are no vehicles allowed the last 800m to the Ganges. The taxi driver phones ahead and someone from the hotel will come and carry your bags through the chaos. We recommend you pay extra to get the top room 302 which had great views. You have breakfast in The Dolphin Restaurant in front of the hotel. You can have anything you want from the menu which is cooked fresh to order. Most of the time we had lunch and dinner at the Dolphin as the food was so good. The Dolphin will also serves beer, 500 rupees, even though it is not on the menu. There are very few hotels with views of the ganges. We recommend this hotel, even with the hassle of getting there, rather than staying at a hotel away from the river. Once there you can walk up and down the river safely.
