Hotel Alka, a synonym for customer-oriented services from years, believes in providing an adorable environment to its guests, where not only they find peace in dwelling but also experience a the highest degree of dedication from the staff. And what more can one ask for? Hotel Alka is located right in the core of Varanasi, a place where even holiness is re-defined. Its evidently a must visit place for all in life. Varanasi (the ancient Kashi or the medieval Banaras) is one of the oldest cities of the world and is considered to be favourite, of even the almighty. Varanasi's prominence in Hindu mythology is virtually unrivalled. Mark Twain, the celebrated English author , who was enthralled by the legend and sanctity of Banaras, once wrote : "Banaras is older than history, older than tradition, older even than legend and looks twice as old as all of them put together."

Varanasi is full of character, colours and sound! Well, you won’t find that in Alca hotel...the character, I mean! It states it’s 3*hotel but in my opinion it’s more of a hostel...our room was never cleaned, towels and bedding lost its white long time ago and needs replacing!

We stayed at Alka from Dec 27 to 30 of 2018. After looking at some of the reviews here, I was not sure about my choice. The reviews are always as mixed. But when we reached Alka, we were satisfied with our choice. The highlight of the hotel is the view of the river and the
