Puja Guest House
Ranked #94 of 235 Speciality Lodging in Varanasi
Reviewed 13 April 2013 via mobile

I stayed 2 nights at Puja Guesthouse in a small room for 300 INR. The shower was a little funky, but normal for India. The room was clean, the fan was quiet. All hotels in India have all-male staff, and apart from the normal excessive staring at a single female traveler, the guys here were very respectful, helpful with booking onward travel. The veg thali in the rooftop restaurant is excellent, so is the view. They let me stay in the lobby until 10pm before a late night train up towards Nepal. The entrance is hard to find, and the alley out front is covered in garbage, cow manure and mice, but everywhere in Varanasi is like that. This was a good value for Varanasi.

The guest house is located in central position, and the view from the restaurant located in the top floor is the best position in Varanasi! The workers are kind, in the reastaurant you can find a small travel agency and the man that work there is very helpfull ans professional. The rooms...the best are in the top floor but the rooms located in the first floor are very noisy especially during the night, so bring with you some ear plugs, they are not so big and and not the most clean that i haved seen. So the price (500 rupies per person!) was for me a little to expansive compared at other guest indian houses where the rooms was bigger and much more clean!

On the top floor and the patio above that you have a great view of the river. A short walk and you can be at a burning ghat. Traveling alone I found the narrow passage ways confusing but colorful. A guide was a good investment . The guest house had hot showers and the wifi worked sometimes. Management was polite. My room with a window had no outside view, at times there was noise. For the price and location - a good deal.

The guest house is located near the buring God place. It is probably one of the tallest buildings in this area. So you can have a decent view of the river. The restaurant on the top floor is nice. Apart from the above, nothing is okay, to be honet. There is some bad smell in the room. The blankets are smelly and dirty. I felt itchy after using it. It seems like the blankets were not washed for ages. Oh and the shower room, the water is not powerful. If you are looking for an enjoyable stay, avoid this house!

my wife and i checked in at Puja Hotel and it was the noistest hotel to stay at. At any point of the day the staff have absolutely no regard for guests in terms relaxation or noise levels for that matter. The day we checked in the manager had a huge and loud argument with one of his friends that it echoed through the hotel for everyone to hear. My wife asked then to keep quiet where she was waived a hand at and got dismissed, leaving me to intervein where i had lost my temper with the staff. Even during the middle of the night is also not a good time to sleep as the staff have a loud conversation on everynight.

Not sure how these guys ended up on these wedsites?????

Room Tip: Not a peacefull hotel to stay at.
