If your priority in Varanasi is having a 24 hr view of the beaitiful Ganges and the vast expanse of the Varanasi Ghats, then this hotel should be your destination. You have to book rooms with a view, while booking and then enjoy the fantastic views , sitting in your room. The approach through the lanes of Bangali Tola can be confusing and tiring, the rooms may not be spic and span, but if u are in Varanasi to click a lot , this hotel should be ideal for you. The access to Rana Mahal Ghat is very fast and in no time you can reach the Dashashwamedh Ghat by walking, if you wanna watch the Ganga Arati and other activities. The service is Good and the staff is good. Food is also nice.Be a liitle alert from.the monkeys, though!
We liked this guest house.The room was basic but clean, equipped with a fridge ( which we appreciated in the hot climate of Varanasi) and, above all, with a balcony overlooking the Gange. This guesthouse, very close to Dashaswamedh Ghat, was the right choice to make the most of our two days in Varanasi, as all the interesting spots were at walking distance . The staff was kind and very helpful. The rooftop restaurant with a view on the Gange , in a nearby hotel of the same owner, served delicious food and great and varied breakfasts. We were there during Diwali and it was an awesome experience we will never forget. It was quite troublesome to book from Italy, they asked to be paid in advance but I had problems as my bank didn’t allow me to move money to the Indian account they gave me. In the end they accepted that we paid at check in.…
Set in the perfect location on the Ghats of the Ganges. This hotel provides excellent service great food and a warm welcome. The rooms are clean and well kept the beds extremely comfortable. But best of all is the unrestricted view of the Ganges. The staff are warm and welcoming and nothing is too much trouble for them. We were sorry to leave but would stay there again when we return.
Great view of the ganges , great location near the most famous ghats and places, rooms are kind of small but its okay, food is okay too. Good for its price , i recommend it as its a practical place to stay in.
This was next to the Ghats which was really beautiful . The guest house is well maintained , rooms were large and clean . Though dont expect any ameneties here . there was a balcony overlooking the ghats and river . Bathroom was basic . Overall our experience was wonderful .

I spent one night at Ajay Guest House. The room was small and pricey for what you get but it was very clean and everything worked. The view of the Ganges from the balcony is lovely, and the staff are very friendly and helpful. There is a rooftop restaurant although I didn't eat there. The location is fantastic, right near Darshashwamedh Ghat.
on the ghats of Varanasi, its not practical to expect a plush drive in ..since galleys run the length and breadth of the water front. How ever, tugging your luggage along through the galleys to this place , your grumpiness vanishes in a whisk, when we feast eyes on the grand Ganga view from your balcony.. But not all rooms have such privileges, and so you need to confirm the Balcony , the Aircondiioner (Which sometimes stalls) and the Power , which goes off in intervals. How ever, they do run the Generator during long spells of power outages , in the night. Added to this is the history that goes behind, that this was constructed by Erstwhile Raja Rana Jagat Singh of Udaipur Palace in late 1500's. The negatives : Cramped Toilet Commode space, Narrow Bathroom, Below average Furnishing, Bed linen…
We chose the place as it was right on the Ghats, very close to Dasaswamedhghat and right next to Darbhanga Ghat. There is a roof top restaurant serving good food with a fabulous view of the Ganges. I wish it could be a bit more clean.
This was my second visit to this guest house. This time we got the heritage room for three nights. I really enjoyed my stay in this room. This room is suitable for two people but we were three and somehow we just managed with an extra matress. The view of Ganga from our room was fabulous. One needs to walk a bit to get to this guest house. There is no road spacious eough to take any rikshaw or car to this hotel. But that is old of Varanasi. Bad thing about this guest house is the restaurant. Staffs at the restaurant are not efficient. One has to wait a long time fort food. Other staffs were great and helpful. I will definitely come back to this guest house.
