I paid a bit more than normal for a Ganges view and am glad I did. My room had two floor to ceiling screened windows which allowed for some shaded relaxing during the heat of the day. Rooftop restaurant was good for breakfast but there are much better authentic Indian options in the area for lunch and dinner. Service was extremely slow as well, patience is a virtue here. The rest of the staff were informative and helpful when prompted, but I could never tell if they were unfriendly or if this was just how they were. Nothing bad really, just never really got to know them like in other hotels in India. I recommend arranging your boat trips through the hotel as it actually is the market price and my boat guy was excellent. A bit on the pricey side but you are paying for the location which is prime.
