Reviewed 29 April 2012

It's not great. But it's the best thing you can get on Assi Ghat for that price.
The Crew in the hotel are very helpful and nice and that whats make it vary welcoming place.
Anyway. I liked it!

Comfortable, although small rooms. Great view from the balconies and rooftop restaurant. Excellent location on the Assi Ghat. Rooftop restaurant pleasant but the food needs some improvement. Nice staff.

The hotel is situated at Assi ghat, one of my favourite places in Benares. The location is great and the view from the roof top, overlooking the whole city and the Ganges, is stunning. Rooms are ok, average Indian standard, with some roms with really good standard and others with lower.
The food served at the hotel is not good. Go outside the hotel for all meals.
The hotel has WiFi but it's jus accassabel from the hotel reception area and it closes at 10pm. This is quite strange. Would be great if the WiFi would be able to access from your own room and 24 hours.
Hotel Temple on Ganges is a good hotel for your Varanasi visit. I will definitly return.

We spent a few days here recovering from traveller's diarrhea and the room service was prompt and a good menu to choose from. The view of the Ganges from the room and the balcony helped to entertain us. The only disappointment was the bathroom, very small for 3 people using it a lot. Great location for a long walk along the ghats and several good cafes and bookshops close by. Cow yard opposite the entrance made for a very smelly welcome. Internet connection was a bit problematic on the hotel's 2 computers.

Room Tip: There is a building in-between the hotel and the Ganges that could block your view.
