“Why stay way out here in an institutional building”
Reviewed 10 March 2012

Not sure what this building was before it was a hotel, but it is very cold. Also do not stay way out here. Be on the ghats.

In Feb 2012 I and my wife stayed at this lovely hotel and I can say that the hotel is a very
plesant place to stay. the hotel staff is great and the facilities very cosy. the restaurant is
very inviting for its delicious food and people. the rooms are comfortable..
we loved this hotel and we definetily recommend it for everyone who happens to go to
the wonderful city of Varanasi. We also want to mention about our guide Mr. Pintu, who
was very helpful and friendly, providing us very unforgatable trips to the locations of varanasi
where one can not miss at all.

Room Tip: the rooms are great

Although not close to the ghats it was a good choice. Staff was very friendly and food was good. I hired three tours with them at reasonable prices, two of them were great but on the third one the cab driver was more interested in taking me to shops than to the sights; it got to a point when I refused to get off the cab and asked to be taken back to the hotee. On the other hand, my guide Pintu was very kind and friendly

Very good place to stay in Varanasi. Nice clean big rooms, pleasant stuff, good food. Local guide Jamtu can show remarkable sites of the city. Don't miss the ethnic evening with great musicians and a classical dance. Recommend it for 100%!

Cheap hotel, but expensive when compared to guest house rooms available elsewhere in town...

Pros:
Quiet location
Clean modern room with flat screen tv
Friendly staff/owner
Their restaurant serves great food
They arranged a taxi pick up from the train station, free of charge :)

Cons:
Far from the gats and other attractions. I had to take a rick-shaw everyday to get to get there.
