Sahi River View Guesthouse
Ranked #14 of 220 Varanasi B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 January 2017

I have stayed in this guesthouse many times. It is excellent as it has beautiful views of the Ganges and the staff are the most helpful you could have.....no exaggeration! The rooms are simple but comfortable and the food very good. Showers are hot. Assi Ghat is a relaxing area of Varanasi to stay in and Sahi River View is a very sheltering place.

Room Tip: Balcony rooms give you the Ganges view although there are verandahs if you do not have one

Taxi from airport dropped us around corner and finding the place was a bit difficult as it was up an alley, under part of the building, up some rather daunting stairs - but once inside it was fine - charming chap on desk - nice clean but basic room - beds and bedding great - bathroom clean - verrandah outside our room with 3 tables and chairs for eating complimentary breakfast overlooking the River Ganges. Really nice place - very easy to get to Ghats and into the streets to find eating places etc.

Room Tip: Room with view overlooking Ganges

Sahi River View felt like a calm oasis in an exciting city. Clean and comfortable with an attentive staff. Several sitting areas provided good nooks to sit and read or relax after exploring city. Great location for walking (or boating) anywhere. Only drawback was morning yoga on the Ghat, amplified for the whole neighborhood to hear. I would recommend this Guesthouse!

This place is well-located right off Assi Ghat, but the otherwise basic accommodations are too expensive at 900 rupees per night. We could justify the cost somewhat upon staff assurances that breakfast was included -- unfortunately, not until the bill arrived did staff specify that "complimentary breakfast" refers to just plain toast and jam, not the bulk of the items on the breakfast menu. The advertised "hot shower" is also an overstatement, seeing how there is no showerhead in the bathroom, only a bucket. Yes, the water is hot -- sometimes too hot even -- but the lack of working temperature controls means you won't be able to adjust the temperature. Wifi is included, though the signal is hit-and-miss, and each time the signal drops you have to enter a complicated password to get back online. Agreed with the other reviews that staff is very nice, but still nobody has been by to clean our room, even after five days, and this place would do with a serious tidying up. Next time we visit Varanasi, we'll look for a place with a more realistic pricing structure. We don't mind paying more for good value, but Sahi River View left my fiance and I with the feeling that we'd just been ripped off.

A little expensive but very helpful staff, clean rooms, and fantastic location. Very close to Assi Ghat. Staff are very attentive. I'd recommend it. We had an enjoyable stay. The rooms had lots of windows which I like.
