Decent enough hotel very close to the River Ganges. Good location for activities on the river - boat rides and the evening shows on the bank. Rooms quite small but ok, very limited hanging for clothes so good that rooms not cleaned during a short stay. Breakfast to order was good. Evening meal good food just very quiet so no atmosphere. Roof top handy for peaceful time in the sun.

Very good hotel next to Assi Ghat where you can relax and stay well. A parking is available and also a rooftop and a restaurant. Very clean, they cleab all the hotel several times a day. Room is good and the bed is comfy, bath has hot and cold water and there are a Fan, the A/C and a fridge. The young owner is very kind and helpful, they took our luggage and give us a chai the day of the departure as our flight was late, leaving us having a rest in the restaurant room.

Recommended by a friend Location : close to a cleanest ghat Easy access to ghat Cleanliness: excellent Rooms : river view was amazing albeit low tide Hot water 24/ 7 , working air con that I had to turn it off as it cools quickly , small fridge and kettle in the room were real perks Food did not cause any stomach upset Staff : All from front office to room service , facilities men were polite , pleasant and personable. Some of them more importantly converse in English which was a surprise. Cons _ Food timings are a bit inconvenient as stats at 0800 AM and 2000 hours. Definitely would like to return back and recommend to friends and family

I am informed the booking was cancelled since it was overbooked and they had some inventory issues. It did create lot of inconvience since I need to find another hotel - I had booked due the mahashivratri week and hence other hotels are now expensive.

****HIGHLY NOT RECOMMEND **** I travelled many spots in India…But this hotel was most worst experience in till my life. 1.Too much irresponsible Owner and staffs. 2.Most unsafe property. 3.Too much misbehaving with guest by Owner and staffs. My Car was damaged in hotel parking spot.and staffs arranged the escape for the guilty person.after 1day when I saw my car was damage they told me they don’t have any knowledge about this matter.But when I demanded CCTV footage then I saw hotel staffs are present on the spot and arrange the escape. When I called the owner he was too much rude and he tried to break my phone when I was live in Facebook.and started misbehaving with me and my family. *so I suggest everyone to Ban this type of hotels*

I have stayed at Temple every time I visit Kashi (which is yearly) for over two decades. And I never been disappointed. Location and atmosphere is great, management/staff and service are excellent and rooms are very clean and nice. The roof terrace with great view over MaGanga, where you can eat as well as do your yoga if you're so inclined, is a great bonus. All in all: if you're looking for a great and reasonably priced place to stay in Varanasi, you can't do better than Hotel Temple on Ganges next to Assi Ghat. .

I had a wonderful experience staying in the Hotel 'The Temple on Ganges' visiting Benaras in January with friends. Very friendly and helpful staffs made our stay comfortable and smooth. The hotel offers a very convenient location, only 3 minutes walking to Assi Ghat. It also offers a roof top dining area with a nice view of The Ganges. Definitely I will recommend the hotel to my friends. Thanks to Mr. Pandey and also to his team for making my stay memorable in Varanasi🙏

The hotel's name should be Slum on Ganges. In spite of 3 months of advance booking they double booked my river view room and gave it to some white skin foreigner. I don't think it was a mistake but a deliberate act to make money. We paid almost 5500 per night for their so-called deluxe river view room, but we were highly disappointed with the room and facilities. It wasn't even a 1 star hotel experience. PLEASE SEE PICTURES TO SEE HOW HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE WE HAD 1. First of all the rooms are not river view. It's an obstructed view of the river and full view of drainage gutters. 2. Because of the gutter there are heaps of mosquitos and flies in the room. We also spotted spiders in our bedsheet and had to request them to change the bedsheet. 3. TV wasn't working at all in the deluxe room and management was acting as if they were not aware of the issue. My kids were disappointed as there was no entertainment for them. 4. WiFi is a joke. No connectivity in the room at all. Even if you connect it will take ages even to open Google. 5. If you want hot water then wake up early as we had to take a cold water bath in January winter simply because there was no hot water at 8 AM. 6. The hotel manager had a really bad attitude and DID NOT address any of the said issues properly. OVERALL I WOULD NEVER RECOMMEND ANYONE TO BOOK IN THIS HOTEL ESPECIALLY THEIR SO-CALLED OVERPRICED RIVERVIEW DELUXE ROOM. IT'S A COMPLETE WASTE OF MONEY AND VACATION SPOILER. OWNER DIDN'T SEEM TO CARE MUCH AND OFFERED A VERY NOMINAL COMPENSATION FOR ALL THE INCONVENIENCES. THAT'S NOTHING COMPARED TO HORRIBLE EXPERIENCE.
