Varanasi is chaotic, but once in this hotel there is calm. We had a lovely room which overlooked the river and a lovely enclosed veranda where we had breakfast each morning.
The room was a good size and the bed very comfortable, but I think it was the worst shower we had in India. No great problem. This hotel is not for anyone with mobility difficulties. One has to climb virtually a ladder to get to reception from the street and there are no lifts in the hotel. This is not a criticism of the hotel but something people need to be aware of when thinking about staying here. There is a lovely terrace and the owner is a keen gardener. The were many dahlias in pots when we stayed and this was a beautiful sight after a day walking around Varanasi.
We didn't eat evening meals at the hotel preferring to go to local restaurants which were much more reasonably priced. It is a strictly vegetarian hotel and no alcohol. If that worries you you need to go to another hotel. I dont think there is a better hotel that close to the Ganges.
Was a lovely peaceful stay in a chaotic city.More
