“Prime location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2012

Varanasi must rate amongst one of the dirtiest cities of India, but it is certainly the most spiritual (IMO!) and enjoyable places to visit. A 'must do' on anyone's trip of the subcontinent

This hotel is just a few minutes walk from the Ghats. You can spend hours wandering and people watching, bathing, cremating bodies or just playing cricket (that's the Indians, not me, bar the first!)

The hotel's location is the best thing but the rooms are clean and the service is fine. Recommended

This was one of the first very comfortable places I stayed at in India, especially considering the price. The only downside (but it still isn't too big) is the decent walk from the main ghats, but even that isn't too big a deal. The food in particular was great and it was also in a good location with lots happening and plenty of other interesting shops and travelers. The lassi's are also brilliant! Stay here if you can, also a wonderful city.

If you're looking for a hotel in Varanasi that is economical and located close to the Ghats then Haifa is one of the best in town. 2 minutes walking distance to Assi Ghat from where you can hop on a boat to the Ganges, if you want to get to the market the hotel is conviniently located where you can get tuk-tuks. The hotel has a great restaurant that serves decent falafal and other Indian cuisines (all veg). It does have almost everything that a traveller needs - money exchange, internet, restaurant, travel desk and good staff.

Room Tip: Most of the rooms are consistent in quality and size. If you have a bigger budget, then the hotel ca...

Stayed here with an Intrepid tour group. I believe this hotel must be like several of the others we stayed in and is supported largely by Intrepid. Its in a great location for walking to the ghats. Its also easy to quickly grab a cycle rickshaw to head further into town for shopping the markets. No ambiance in the restaurant, but the food was decent. (highly recommend the babaganoush). It has another one of the bathrooms that are not my favorite...one where the shower head is just in the middle of the bathroom, so everything gets wet. This is a decent place to stay when not planning to spend much time in the room. (laundry service hotel did was Poor...crunchy clothing with same mild dirt spots on them from when they went in)

This hotel was recommended to us by a volunteer who has been in Varanasi for almost one year. It is a 2 minute walk from Assi Ghat and has a great restaurant attached but also is surrounded by an abundance of eating options (if you're looking for local, international or healthy options).

The rooms are good for the rates they charge, however what made our stay memorable was the staff. Lovey Jones works the front desk and is an amazingly kind man who been great to us - he even surprised my wife with a bday present while we were here! Also, Biju, who works in the travel office has been awesome as well! He has taken care of anything and everything we needed, in the hotel, restaurant and of course with travel as well - he even got us on a train that was sold out everywhere else we checked! I can't say enough of about these 2 but because of them I definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a place in Varanasi!

Room Tip: ask for a corner room
