Hotel Ok International
Ranked #71 of 80 Hotels in Varanasi
Reviewed 5 January 2012

We stayed here for 1 night in December 2011, but not by choice - the place we originally booked did not have our reservation and was full, so our local tour guide brought us here. It was New Years Eve, so we were grateful to have had a place to stay at all. But if we had a choice, we wouldn't stay here and would recommend travelers to look elsewhere. The rooms were large, but very dirty, even by Varanasi standards -- yellow sheets, stinky blankets, stained towels, etc. The staff had uniformly sour faces and were not helpful at all.

And this incident actually happened, I kid you not: when we went to the 2nd floor for breakfast the next morning, the restaurant/cafe was a mess and we were told that there was no breakfast that day, even though we had paid for a buffet breakfast. They couldn't give us an explanation. Later, I overheard the manager give an explanation to another guest -- he said that the staff partied all night and got too drunk on New Years Eve, and none of them showed up in the morning, so they weren't able to serve breakfast that day. That about summarizes this hotel right there...

If you somehow end up at this hotel, here's a tip: there's a decent food court across the street, in the cinema/mall complex. Eat there, not at the hotel.

The pics of the hotel, as posted on net, are very good. But when u go there u'll come to see the truth.
We reached there on 22th Nov 2011. We had booking made through a travel agent for complete buddhist package, but totally disappointed to see the room. The bed-sheets were terible and stinking. When we asked for changing them, the changed ones were also the same. We order a cup of tea and got it after 1 & 1/2 Hrs, and that too after 4 to 5 reminders. This is the only hotel for which, we made complaint to our travel agent.
Anyhow Food of the hotel was very tasty.

A local friend booked this hotel for us. The reception service was terrible and so were the rooms. The fridge was dirty, awful bathroom, complimentary breakfast was cold and lame. The building has 7 floors but 4 are closed off. Dirty hallways. Rooms are 2500 Rs, but luckily we were able to pay the original price quoted to our friend of 1400 Rs.

I was in charge of arranging travel for a group of friends and found this hotel on-line which appeared to be quite good. Well looks can be deceiving!! Firstly they advertise a roof top restaurant, garden and swimming pool. When we arrived I asked about these and was told the pool is closed for maintenance. I thought I would walk up and have a look anyway. IT DOESN'T EVEN EXIST!!. The rooftop is just like any other in India, being prepared for more rooms. There doesn't appear to ever have been a pool there. The first floor restaurant was terrible. The breakfast which was included could not be eaten so we ordered from the menu. It took almost 30 minutes for canned juice to arrive at the table and food was up to an hour. We had to keep continually asking the waiters for things thinking they had forgotten about our orders. Waiters uniforms were dirty, tablecloths were dirty, and waiters would deliver glasses (empty) with their fingers inside them. TV reception was very poor in all the rooms in our group. Furnishings were in general in poor condition, there were curtain tracks hanging at 45 degrees.in both the restaurant and our room. Location to the ghats was reasonable in that it was about a 20 minute walk along a direct route to Dasaswamadeh ghat. Not good value for money.

Room Tip: Look elsewhere
