Located in the Cantonment area, the Surya Kaiser Palace is accessible to the airport and railway station, as well as the Buddhist holy site Saranath and numerous Hindu temples on the holy river Ganga. Surya sits on a historical site of an ancient Nepali king's palace built in 1818, named Kesar Castle. Newly restored, this palace is for you to enjoy. A fine dining multi-cuisine restaurant, a unique cafe and juice bar, full service bar, banquet halls, and a swimming pool are all available. Each hotel room has a balcony with a view of the palace and the gardens, where you can dine facing this beautiful building. Surprisingly affordable hotel accommodations will delight and pamper you. Four unique levels of rooms allow you to decide which accommodation suits you best. Each room package has a complimentary breakfast buffet served daily and 24-hour room service. All guests may have full use of the pool, and access to the spa. At Surya Kaiser Palace it is our desire to provide a paradise where guests can relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy their stay.

Had a great stay at Hotel Surya on night of Diwali and after. Lovely garden setting and a special Diwali dinner and fireworks. Sincere,helpful and attentive staff. Speedy room service, clean and lots of hot water for after a busy day in Varanase.

A very well designed building, with a touch of heritage and serenity. Pleasant place to spend a couple days in an otherwise busy and noisy city. Simple, elegant and tastefully done interiors and very comfortable rooms.
