“Great, quiet guesthouse with lovely staff!”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

We stayed two nights here in one of the front rooms, with a nice little balcony looking out to the river. They staff were really helpful and offer a free breakfast (chai and toast) and free internet. There's also a nice communal area looking out to the river, which makes the guesthouse feel nice and open. They also helped us organized fair-priced boat rides and to decipher our train tickets!

Assi ghat is a much quieter location and it was great to be tucked away in this lovely guesthouse! Definitely recommend!!

Good sized rooms which are clean with hot water and large bathrooms.
This hotel has lovely, warm, friendly communal areas where you can meet and chat to other travellers, including some nice balcony terraces where you can sit in the morning sunshine and enjoy the views of Assi Ghat.
The breakfast is good with plenty of variety and the staff are humerous, friendly and helpful.

I think the location of this place is absolutely perfect; a little further out from the loud and noisy (and dirty) ghats you can count on this hotel as a place to escape after a long day in Varanasi. Its an easy 15 minute walk to the main action with plenty to see, photograph and observe allong the way!
All in all I felt this was a well-run hotel, taken care of and lovely to see ladies cooking and cleaning - for some reason this seems to be a rare thing in India... hotels are majority run and maintained by men only!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a balcony so you can people-watch the ghat below...

The location is amazing, the staff always have smiles on their faces. The cook ensures love goes into every meal. The rooms are basic, but excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Rooms on the top floor might be quieter than the main floor.

The guesthouse offers a great river view and the rooms are ok. We (2 girls) stayed there for 3 nights and felt safe in this hotel. We had a shared balcony, but the staff seems to attentively put "matching" guests in the neighbouring room (at first a couple and then 2 other girls). The staff is also what earned Sahi River View the fourth star: One very reliable guy organised everything from boattrip to private driver to Bodh Gaya for us. Good value for money!

What else can i say..this is the perfect place to stay! If you would like an early morning or evening trip on he river,walk downstream until you come to the first water treatment plant(a red tower beside the river,a few minutes from Assi Ghat) ask for Shri,he is the best,a most knowledgeable and helpful boatman! avoiding the expensive boats upstream!!

Room Tip: lalways look,before you book!
