“This hotel would be one choice in Varanasi”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

I stayed this hotel for one night in Mar. 2012. This hotel is about one year old and I was not planning to stay at this hotel(actually I wanted to stay at another hotel which I usually stay, but the hotel was full). Anyway, by chance I found this hotel.
The facility was new and the room was well maintained. Hot shower was available for 24 hours.
At first, I wanted to stay at the cheapest room(I think it costed about 300 rps) but they showed me very small and bad room(common bathroom) for me, so I decided not to choose it.

So, I recommend you not to choose the room only from the room fare.
This hotel locates nearby main gaat and it will be easy for you to look around there.
Overall, I think this hotel would be the one choice during your stay in Varanasi.

Room Tip: You should check the several rooms before you decide.

I stayed there in March 2012 and I would definetly recommend it.
Mr Lalu, the owner, is very accomodating and welcoming.
Food on the rooftop is delicious, service a little slow but who cares! you are in India to enjoy more than likely so just relax :-)
The staff is great and ready to help with any special request.
The best thing about this guesthouse is that part of their profit goes to a school that helps poor kids that otherwise would not have access to education.
If you happen to have some clothes or school material that you want to donate I'm sure the kids will love it!!!

I do not consider Rudra guest house an valuable accomodation for western travellers at all, because the cleaness standard is very very poor, mainly in the rooms (sheets and pillows) and in the restaurant; moreover rooms are too simple, that is without any forniture except one bed and one chair, and no mirror in the bathroom.
The centralised heating system doesn't exist, and they don't offer a portable one.
The staff agree with unscrupulous travels agencies that sells Rudra accomodations ten times more expensives than the regular fares: this is what happens to us.

the hotel supports a ngo for helping poor children in varanasi (food, education) with a share of their profits. so far so good. but immediatly after checking in a fat small guy (he introduced himself as owner, i found out later he is the manager) takes you to his silk shop to sell you his goods (not for him, is only for the children....) and afterwards to a fortune teller (he do not want to make pressure on you, i declined his 3 offers for horoscop, then he came up with how much i want to spend, also for 1.000 rupees he has something, handreading, also everything only for the children....). who wants to belive will believe. at least the two children working there were not at school during my stay...room was small without a window, ver hot!

I have stayed at Rudra twice now and have found the rooms to be clean and spacious with good facilities. The hotel is linked to the Learn for Life NGO school for children and money from the guest house and bakery go towards running the school also. The staff are friendly and helpful and Lalu (the owner) will assist in many ways for guests of the hotel. The hotel has a roof top restaurant with great views across Varanasi. The food is good quality and served from the adjoining kitchen. Rudra is a very good hotel set near to the Ganga only 1 minute walk and I would recommend staying here.
