“VERY NOISY”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 November 2011

This place could be pretty good with good prices, if you have ear plugs.

Thanks to great acoustics of the guesthouse and the street near it, there were many things which didn't let me to sleep during the week I stayed here: construction works near the guesthouse (at nights!), the staff watching TV at 2AM, the staff jabbering at reception for whole night, etc

This place came recommended by the tourist desk at the Varanasi train station. We paid 200 rupees for one of the cheaper rooms without windows. The shower is hot, no bedbugs, great big fan that keeps the room cool--- you really can't complain! We've eaten at the restaurant several times and enjoyed it alot.The staff are super great. There is a free tour everyday that we took. They do take you to a silk factory at the end but it is the one mentioned in all the guides as being one of the best, and there was absolutely zero pressure to buy anything at all. I would certainly recommend this place to anyone on a budget.

I learned of Mishra via backpackers grapevine. Came highly recommended. As a lone traveller I stayed in single room with balcony over front entrance alley. The room was a "bit rough" but inexpensive, and I stayed about 5 nights. Roof top restaurant served good food at good prices. Met one man in restaurant (he wasn't staying there) but had been to all the rooftop restaurants around and told me we had the best views of Ganga. Suresh (guide)is a lovely, friendly man who could not have been more helpful whether you take the tour or not. He is an asset to Mishra! If you meet him please say hello from Rhonda (Australia). Also take the time to chat with Lakshmi and her young daughter Bhoomi, lovely young lady with "bead shop" on red and green steps ghat.

Mishra is a nice hotel near the burning ghat in Varanasi. The rooms are basic and clean. I paid R300 and had a little balcony with a nice view of the Ganges.

I would certainly recommend this place to travellers. The rooms are nice and the staff are very helpful. The main guy at reception speaks great English and is ready with advice about places to go and how best to get there. I took a walking tour with a guide he suggested. Although his English was patchy, he took me to lots of unusual temples and helped me to find my way around the little alleys, you pay what you wish, I was happy to pay R150 for the two hour tour, more would be appropriate if there were more people.

Once you have found the main street, it is easy to orientate yourself around Varanasi (the river was high, so ghats were not an option) and the way to Mishra is signposted regularly.

A nice hotel, with reasonable food and helpful staff.

We stayed here three nights and loved it. There's a great view of the Ganges from the rooftop restaurant and the rooms are clean.

We definitely recommend using the local guide provided by the guesthouse. He's a nice elderly man who speaks great English and provides interesting information on the ghats and temples.
