Monu Family Paying Guest House
Ranked #12 of 224 Speciality Lodging in Varanasi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 21 April 2012

A little hard to find in the alleyways of the old city so Monu came to the main road to meet us himself. Good email and phone information including arranging a station pick-up.
Room was brightly painted and clean - hot water was there when we wanted it, and advice was given freely and helpfully, including arranging an early morning boat tour. Would recommend - great value and location for the ghats and plenty of good eateries nearby.

Room Tip: We had a large en-suite room with a HUGE double bed - recommend it.

We agree with all the positive reviews about this place. We really enjoyed our stay at Monu's Guesthouse. The place looks really cool with all the different coloured painted walls. Our room was basic but clean and a really good size - very good value for money. It was great that a good padlock was provided for our room and as there is always someone in the reception/ground floor you do feel that your belongings are very safe. The location was perfect - just a few minutes to the ghat and river. Also, Monu was incredibly helpful and had great advice - we needed to find a cheap hostel to leave our bags for the day in Agra and Monu was able to help us out.I would say to get Monu to arrange transfer as the place would be very hard to find.

This is a very nice family run place very close to the Ghats. The family were very nice and always happy to answer questions, it was clean, there was always hot water and we had the biggest double bed I have ever seen! The only negative about this place was that it was a bit noisy at times, but I guess you have to expect that if you want to be near the Ghats. We did stay in some places nicer than this during our trip to India, but all of them were more expensive. Considering the price was only 700 Rs. for a double room this was probably the best value for money we found in 6 weeks of travelling round India.

Location: Monu Guest House seemingly locates at the central point of Varanasi, very near from Golden Temple (5 min walk), Ganga Fuji Restaurant (2 min walk), Dasaswamedh Ghat (15 min walk). For first timers, pick-up service is highly recommended.

Room: Austerely-equipped yet clean and quiet room. 24/7 hot water and free wifi count.

Service: Laundry, desk help, luggage left and toilet use for late departure (I left at 11.30 pm whilst having checked out at noon) make me come back again next time.

Value: It was very kind and warm of Monu Family. Also, their being helpful and informative gave me a super content home-stay in Varanasi.

Room Tip: First floor rooms are much better than roof top ones!!!

We stayed here for three nights. Rooms are clean and with hot water. It locates at old Varanasi near Golden Temple. It's hard for first comer to find in the lane.
