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."

It’s always pleasure to stay there. Visiting Varanasi means stay at Alka for us. Specially the view of Ganga from the doom is fabulous, While entering hotel, it’s narrow lane, but when you reach the view of Ganga and Ganga Ghat will amaze you for sure..

The hotel is remotely located. The rooms are small. They typically make single bed rooms as double bed rooms by adding a pillow. The AC machine was drippig with water. The hotel manager was reluctant to hear, let alone help. I went with my wife and I had to shift to another better hotel the next day.

Poor location. You have to walk with your luggage till the hotel as the hotel is far off from the point where vehicles can go. Water dripping from AC machines. Very poor service from hotel management.

I had booked a double bed AC room for my parents last week. They provided a single bed room and added two pillows to make it double bed. I had paid for a double bed room by the way. The AC was dripping with water and the water from the ac was falling on the TV below. It can cause electric shock. We raised these issues but the hotel manager did not pay any attention. We had to shift to another hotel the next day. The location is also remote and you have to walk a long stretch because vehicles do not go beyond a point.

This hotel is located right on meer ghat and there are some rooms with a balcony and view. Staff is friendly and highly responsive. The restaurant attached serves good food. Vehicles cannot reach this hotel so one needs to walk for about 500 mts from the main road. The manager will usually send someone over to pick up the luggage. This is place is highly recommended if you would like to stay by the Ghats and walk around the old city. May not be suitable for families with small children as there is a significant amount of walking to do.
