Ganpati Guest House
Ranked #2 of 79 Hotels in Varanasi
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 19 November 2011

We stayed 3 nights at Ganpati Guesthouse which is nicely located at all the major ghats, the nightly ceremony and markets. We were pleased with the room we had #6 which offered privacy. We enjoyed the food, especially the special Thali and the staff at Ganpati are all very friendly and provide very good service. Ganpati is definitely the place to stay in Varanasi. One nice thing to keep in contact is the free wifi and computer at the reception.

Room Tip: We had room 6 which we liked because it offered privacy

We stayed 2 nights at a room with Ganga view. The sunrise is amazing, but be prepared that it can be really noisy. The only setback was that since the last year the room prices doubled. The restaurant has a nice view but service and food is not the strong side of Ganpati. Ask for pickup, its not easy to find!

We (2 'oldies') stayed at Ganpati for 4nights; the staff were helpful, courteous and smiling; our room was very clean; the meals are good; the guesthouse location is excellent and the view from the terrace is outstanding.
Unfortunately our room had no balcony/view or window and we had the smells and noise that emanate from the lane, so we would recommend trying to get a room that opens onto the river.
We arrived by private car/driver and hadnt prearranged a guide to walk us thru the myriad of lanes that lead to Ganpatti (no vehicle access); there are plenty of touts that are only too keen to help out but it might relieve stress levels if a guide is arranged; trying to find Ganpati by oneself can be very daunting.
Wandering around the lanes was interesting and fun altho be prepared for crowded lanes that are very smelly and noisy and where touts continually barage tourists. Don't be put off tho....Varanasi is an amazing experience and we would recommend a stay at Ganpatti.

I came here under the suggestion of a couple I met. They told me that Ganpati was a great place and so I decided to come here and they were right. I was able to get a room almost immediately without a reservation. Everything about this place is great!!!

It has a great location, so the rooms have a nice view over the Ganges. But even if you have an inside room (wich are also very nice as they face to a beatiful and peaceful courtyard) there is a great terrace in the top where you can also enjoy the views, while having a nice meal or a drink. The staff is very friendly, the place is quiet and the rooms are very clean, so you can feel at home after a hard day walking around varanasi.

We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
