“a cheap sleep next to Manikarnika Ghat”
Reviewed 3 February 2012

Great place to stay: cheap filling food served on the roof, clean/spacious rooms, great location - next to Manikarnika Ghat and helpful staff. No complaints to note although rooms would benefit from furniture/accessories!

Room Tip: phone/email the owners for free pick up... otherwise will take a while to find the place first time!

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
We welcome you to a quiet, comfortable, homely atmosphere, and hope you enjoy your stay with us. This budget accommodation in Varanasi offers fine facilities. 21 rooms all with attached bath, some with air condition. We are at the main heart of the city, absolute bank of the River Ganges, so any place and every spot is easily reachable. 'MANIKARNIKA GHAT' is famous for Burning Ghat, where Hindus burn body after death. At last but not least our services are exclusively traditional. We believe our guest as God in disguise. Situated in the heart of the ancient Varanasi close to the Golden Temple and Burning Ghat. Walking distance from Main Ghat and Main Market. 30 minutes from railway station/bus stop, airline offices, 1 hour from Varanasi Airport. If you desire to spend less for a comfortable stay, still live in privacy, style, luxury and elegance, with very simple but very comfortable and immaculately clean rooms, with/without attached baths/showers, running hot and cold water, western style toilets then this is it!! We have a little sitting arrangement for our guests where they come sit, share their stories, plan for the next day, drink and dine and have a whole lot of fun together. ... more   less
