“Texan in Varanasi, India”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 July 2012

Namaste! If you are looking for a comfortable place to stay and at a great price, then you MUST stay at the Rahul Guest House In Varanasi. It is always clean and the family which owns the business will treat you like one of their own. The view of the Ganges is wonderful and it is great to view as you enjoy your coffee each morning or your Indian tea in the evening. I was sad when I had to leave, but I will be back for my room at the Rahul Guest House.

For a budget hotel, this is a very good place. The staff are very friendly and helpful and really do go out of their way to be nice to you. The rooms are nice and clean. The view from the rooftop is brilliant. Also, the ghats are just a stone's throw away from the place. My only problem was that the restaurant, while being hygienic, wasn't varied enough in its offerings. i would definitely stay here in the future and would recommend the place wholeheartedly.

Room Tip: Choose the deluxe rooms...the standard rooms don't have air conditioning and you don't get a...

Rahul Guesthouse is a wonderfully situated place in Varanasi, far away from the city's chaos but right on the Ganga river. From the rooms and the terrace you can enjoy a stunning view of the Ganga. The staff is very friendly and helpful and the house is nice. The rooms are not so clean (especially mattresses) but for Varanasi's standards it's ok. The food is excellent and extremely varied. The cook is a great guy. Moreover, you can enjoy your meals from the beautiful house's terrace. To go to the city center you need to take a rickshaw, but you might prefer to be at a distance from Varanasi's very crowded main streets.

Room Tip: If you choose to stay at Rahul guesthouse, you should absolutely try the food.

Clean and friendly family-run guesthouse in quiet neighbourhood, walking distance from Assi Ghat.. One of the best we stayed in India.We had a deluxe room, which was great. Big, clean and nicely decorated. No topsheet on the bed though, only a (very soft) blanket. Nice riverview from rooftop restaurant and good food. Owner and his family are very friendly and helpfull. You can book sunrise and sunset boattrips at the guesthouse, which are highly recommended.
