This is my third visit to Benaras (Varanasi) and second time staying at hotel Temple on Ganges. For it is a second home in Benaras and Mr Madan Mohan Pandey made it a very comfortable for us. This time we stayed in one of the best rooms in the hotel which is the top floor, giving us access to the common terrace and also a private terrace. The rooms are tastefully decorated and were warm as we went during the winters. Every morning the terrace gave us an uninterrupted view of the Ganges and some parts of the Assi ghats. The location of the hotel is the best, 1 min away from the Assi Ghat and there are a few kitschy quirky cafes nearby other than the hotel. The rooms were cleaned every alternate day and the staff was available at all times and extremely warm and helpful. Thank you

Dev Deepawali done well thanks to the Hotel Temple guys!! Great location just about 5 mins walking distance from Assi Ghat where one can watch the morning n evening aarti. That it was Dev Deepawali was a bonus with two boatrides in the evening n morning. The hotel driver who accompanied us all over was a treasure who gave us local tips and tales on Varanasi which were truly delightful. The room service is a tad slow but when you see that the hotel is well-maintained and clean, one is okay to give it that leeway. Plus the family who runs it are always present to ensure their guests are comfortable. Their terrace sit-out cum restaurant is a good idea for a dinner as it offers a fantastic view of the entire city.

This was our second visit to Temple on the Ganges. The last one was six years back. Temple on the Ganges continues to be a great hotel, with an excellent location. Assi ghat is probably the best ghat to start and end a ghat journey in varanasi. The hotel is beautifully situated, while not exactly on the ghat, it is right next to it and within walking distance. It has ample parking space. The rooms have been renovated lately and are in excellent condition. Very good soft beds, good lilen, nice clean and spacious washrooms. Tastefully decorated. The staff is very helpful, and courteous. All your travel needs/ advice would be met by the staff. The one thing, which could probably improve is the food, the food is okay, but not too great. But Assi ghat has excellent

Few hotels so near the river, with sufficient car-parking. The hotel is about 100 meters away from the river, and you get a decent view of the river and the crowds of Assi ghat. Top floor rooms with a common balcony are the best (facing the river/ghat). So, if traveling by car, then highly recommended. Also lots of eating places, traditional as well as river-side cafes within walking distance. Overall good and polite staff (they goofed-up on by billing, but in general ok).

Very homely and a hospitable stay. Nice and mystical place of banaras where tradition and culture has got interwoven in the daily lives of people. The hotel serves excellent and freshly made food with rooms that overlook ganga and allows one time to contemplate and absorb its energy.
