“A SO PEACEFUL PLACE IN THE HEART OF THE OLD TOWN”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

A so peaceful place in the heart of the old town.
The staff is so kind and so professional in the pure indian tradition hospitality.
Ideal room to be quiet and near of the sacred Ganges.
The breakfast on the terrace is really imposing with its rare view
on the Ghats. Internet connexion is easy too.
So nice to meet this guest house with Ganpati as main indian God and his
Infinite Blessing...
Best regard from France

What to say about "Ganpati Guest House" its a place of God leaves there, with all positive environments, cleanliness, and the River Ganga which really indicates that the The Ganpati Guest House is not only the Guest House, but a place where you can leave like as you leave in your home, same positiveness, entertainment, enthusiastic,. In a Huge Place like Varanasi which is also known as the holy place of lord Shiva, and the most desirable name of Ganpati Guest House is stand for the same... I really love to visit this place Varanasi and the most I will visit this Guest House.

I had the room N°8 on the patio. Very clean, well-arranged. The patio for sure hasn't sunlight, so the room is dark. But, I spent all my time on the top roof terrasse or on the second floor balcony. Great! the emplacement on the ghat is perfect!!!!!!! Beautiful view. Close to main places. Nice people, very good atmosphere in the guesthouse. And, a music school just close so I took lessons with a wonderful teacher ! I strongly recommande the place.

Room Tip: Rooms with shared balcony.

Clean guesthouse and very helpful personnel. Recommended for any type of travelers. Quite unusual for such type hotels in India. A la carte breakfast lets you choose a number of dishes from the pre-determined set.
However, there is a lot of noise from the outside.

We stayed here for a couple of nights and it was a winner of a guesthouse in a prime location. They picked us up from our overnight train from Kolkata and took us by autorickshaw to the guesthouse (you have to walk the last bit through the old town as no cars etc). We had a lovely double room on the front overlooking the Ganges - a really incredible view with a long balcony where you could sit and watch the world go by. The room was clean, the shower nice and hot.
The restaurant is on a lovely roof terrace overlooking the river and ghats and the food is some of the best we've had so far - the vegetable pakora amazing!

Room Tip: Try and get one overlooking the river.

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
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
