Hotel Ganges View
Ranked #10 of 217 Varanasi B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 February 2012

Beautiful room, terrace with postcard view of the Ganges, gracious, friendly staff and an ideal location (right on Assi Ghat - not too hectic but plenty of atmostphere) - I highly recommend the Hotel Ganges View. Walk along the river and then get lost in the old city (crowded, dusty, disorienting) and then, exhausted, have an oasis of peace to return to. Note: some reviews say this place is overpriced. I know I couldn't afford such a beautiful room in the states or Europe so I considered it a pretty good deal.

Hotel Ganges view is overpriced and whilst it is right on Assi Ghat I found it to be too far away from the main action of the other ghats. The rooms are spacious and very clean however I found the staff not that friendly especially when I asked for a taxi to the airport and they didn't book it until I was ready to leave and thus I almost missed my flight. When the car finally arrived the manager didn't even say "goodbye" or "thankyou"

Despite being a beautiful hotel in a good location carrying a wonderful air of charm and character of Varanasi, most of our group got sick during the stay there and we observed many other guests sick all with the same symptoms of dysentery or vomiting. I took a look in the kitchen to find out how such an upmarket place could allow this and saw a very old and not sufficient water filter for the drinking water and the plates being washed in the hotels water which is simply well water. I tried to raise this with the owner informing so many guests had gotten sick during the stay and he denied it vehemently stating they must have eaten elsewhere, though some of our party had only eaten at the hotel. So please take care of food and water at this hotel and please complain about this if you see guests vomiting on the stairs (as we did) or with serious dysentery as it must change. The well needs to be tested and a RO filter MUST be installed this kind of standard for the prices they charge is disgraceful. This all said Varanasi and the Ganges are as pollluted as ever so it is critical to take extra care you stay in a place you will not get sick.

The Ganges View is more than a delight. It has. It has been in the same family for three generations and the owner Shashank, has enormous sensitivity. An example: I saw him placing tiny flowers into the earring holes of a bronze female bust. The whole house is beautifully furnished and decorated and the ambience and food are beyond reproach. Staying here is an experience not to be missed.

One of my favorite places to stay, the Hotel Ganges View is perfectly located in Assi Ghat. Shashankji runs a fabulous property and the staff is absolutely wonderful. It is a charming place and the food is absolutely wonderful. As a vintage hotel, it doesn't have many modern amenities, which is ok given the atmosphere. Unfortunately, it's popularity has driven prices up in recent years and it can sometimes be difficult to get a room, but it's worth trying. A wonderful oasis in a sometimes chaotic place.
