#9 of 325 in Varanasi
We are a cosy homestay nestled in the heart of the chaos and divinity of ​Varanasi. The Granny's Inn is run by two loving grannies - Aruna and Asha​. They make delicious home cooked food with the help of their man Friday - Kashi. The homestay is being guided by Cinnamon Stays - the No. 1 Bed & Breakfast of Gurgaon & amongst the top 25 B&B's in India ranked on Tripadvisor. Location Just 10 min brisk walk from the Kashi Vishwanath temple & Dashashwamedh Ghat. Banks, ATMs, sari factories, street food are all within walking distance from our homestay. 30min from the station and about 45min from the airport. Rooms 6 creatively furnished rooms, all with en suite bathrooms, with AC and non AC options. The rooms are well lit and ventilated, have hand painted mirrors and paintings that add life to the homestay. Each room is named after the women in the family who are the reason behind the Granny's Inn Additional Facilities · Pick-up and ​d​rop from the airport and ​railway ​station - additional charges · ​Local ​guides​ for sightseeing & shopping ​ A few things to remember · No ​n​on​-​vegetarian food​ or alcohol ​is ​served/ allowed at the Granny's Inn. · The wi-fi ​internet often goes patchy · We are ​a ​homestay and not a hotel or a run-of-the-mill guesthouse​. ​Please expect the warmth of a home, good food, local tips but​ not the facilities of a hotel

We, three friends decided to visit the mystic holy city Varanasi. Though we generally stay in business hotels, this time we decided to do a little different by choosing homestay. Based on the reviews in TripAdvisor, we chose Granny’s Inn. After the trip I can surely say it was one of the best decision. The entire property is neat and clean. The room allocated to us is of right size for 3 persons and washroom is also appropriate. Also a special mention about the food. Initially we only thought of having the breakfast which was included in the package but ended up having all the major meals during our stay. Food here is simply home cooked food with amazing taste. Kashi who takes care of kitchen is always eager to prepare and treat you according to your palate. This review will

Visited Banaras during November 16-19 and stayed in Granny's Inn. The place is simple and clean, located on main Luxa road opposite PDR mall. Most tourist places of Banaras such as Kashi Vishwanath temple, Dashaswamedh Ghat, etc are walking distance from here. Many simple restaurants and famous chat house are also nearby. In Granny's provide simple breakfast. On request, they can provide lunch and dinners too. All Veg. We enjoyed our stay.

Granny’s inn is a perfect place to stay whether you’re a solo female, a family of four or a couple looking for an affordable, clean, safe and pleasant stay. In the heart of Varanasi and a short walk from the river ganges, Granny’s inn is all you need to make your stay in Varanasi simple and enjoyable. The staff are humble and kind, cooking wonderful meals for breakfast and dinner and the rooms and lobby are decorated with beautiful artwork. Just a few minutes away is one of the best lassi shops I’ve ever been to: blue lassi. You must check it out during your stay. 10/10 for the grannies! Thank you again 🙏🙏

My wife and I visited The Granny's inn during Kumbh Mela this year and stayed 3 nights. This place is located very near to the Dashashwamedh Ghat and the Vishwanath mandir and very close to all the shopping areas. During our stay, though we could not meet the Granny's, Mayur their manager helped us in all possible ways- arranging a boat, a taxi, a rickshaw, suggesting great places to eat, shop and also directing us to the temples and ashrams of our interest along the ghats! The boat ride with Shyam and the taxi to Prayagraj with Virender was memorable and highly recommended. We will definitely visit the place again. All our friend who have stayed at the inn on our recommendation have had only good things to say. Thank you Mayur for making our stay comfortable, hassle free
