Walk the ghats, see the sunrise, experience the evening fire ceremony, take a boat, explore old Varanasi - the location of the Rashmi Guest House can't be beat for location. You can do all of this just by stumbling out the front door and down a few steps. And the Guest House staff is very friendly. The pickup/drop off from...

With stayed in Rashmi Guest House for two nights. The rooms are small but clean. The shower worked perfectly, with hot water! The best part of the hotel is its location on one of the ghats and about 100 metres walk from the main ghat. The view from the rooftop restaurant is superb. The food itself is ok but not...

Had a pleasant stay in the guesthouse, nothing special and nothing horrifically wrong. The free pick up and drop off as well as the rooftop restaurant are definitely bonuses. The place is all very clean and has a brilliant location, right in the old town and on the waterfront. The room was very small and the air con switched itself...

Pappu was indeed a great guide and general all round 'fixer'. I think Varanasi would have been very overwhelming for myself and my daughter without his help. He was certainly very knowledgeable and took us to parts of the city that we would not have seen otherwise and we had a very positive experience of this great city as a...

We stayed at the Rashmi Guest House during our time in Varanasi. It was a truly great hotel with a very fine restaurant. We were fortunate to have a room with a breathtaking view of the Ganges. We accepted the services of Pappu, an independent guide, with exceptional knowledge of Varanasi. He helped us make the most of our 3...

As a single traveler with the opportunity for a one-week stay in Varanasi, I checked into Rashmi Guest House, and I was not disappointed. The moment I walked through the door, I was warmly presented with every hospitality a traveler could want.
