Worst and most unprofessional hotel. We checked in late at night 10.30PM IST manager mr Sharma allocated the room to someone else and was really quick to accommodate us in another shady hotel close by. Other than location nothing else its very steep stairs we need to climb to reach. After 20days of follow up they shared email with cleartrip for our cancellation done by them and then we received refund.

“Great location ” The location is awesome. Just the bank of river ganga. How every it's a pain to reach at the property. From main road you have to walk almost 1 km. And the lane is very narrow. Walking is the only option to reach from main road. Staffs behaviour is just awesome.. very co operative.

I can't address anything about this hotel except that they canceled our reservations one day before arrival due to ability to make more money. There was a big festival going so place was flooded with people. Had to scramble to find something else. Ended up far away from where we wanted. Has been looking at loss of train and airfare.

Varanasi is very special to me and my wife as it is a spiritual place and Hotel Sita is that point from where we start our spiritual journey. Here we feel undisturbed, safe and homely. Mr. Sourav the owner of this hotel is a very nice person and all staffs are very well mannered and helpful . We are staying in this hotel since 2014. Last year I sent two thousand rupees as advance for room booking but couldn't go to Varanasi as my elder sister died but when I reminded them they gladfully checked it and adjusted the total money without any hesitation. Here stands the faith which is rare today. Mr. Rakesh Singh who is in Sita next to Mr. Sourav is an outstanding person and guide with immense knowledge about Varanasi and it's outskirts. We are friends now.

The location is amazing, the staff make a great effort to solve anything and everything. Like many hotels in Varanasi some rooms are outdated but are spacious. The restaurant has a great view of Mother Ganges 🙏 they will ask beforehand what would you like for breakfast. Lovely people.

Honesty is Best wrote a review Mar 2023

DO NOT TRUST THE GUIDES AFFILIATED WITH THIS HOTEL!!! His name is Jai Maa Kali Vishnu. He is a scam artist. He works with local vendors and will pretend to be your friend only to use the information he receives to coax you into the shark hands of his partners. Pooja Silk Handicraft is the main one. They sell fake silk and will charge you American retail prices. The hotel is not as pretty as it appears in the photo. The rooms had rats. It is overall filthy and there are hotels along the Ganga who offer better quality accommodations and for a better price. You will lose money staying here. The only saving grace of the hotel was the rooftop restaurant but you can find that at other hotels. Just don't do it. You'll be sad that you did and glad that you took my advice. This ruined what was supposed to be a special occasion for me and my family. We met another foreigner (American guy) who had a bad experience where the hotel gave his passport information to the vendor and they forged a fake invoice. Please close this hotel down and all of the scam artists who are connected to it because they are ruining the power of this holy city with their greed. My stomach turns as I write this because I must remember how awful it was for all of us.

Had a very good stay in Sita. Amazing view. Right in chousatti ghat. The manager Pandey Ji is helpful and arranged pickup from main road to carry luggage as hotel is not accessible by car. They have a restaurant on terrace with good view as well.
