antique facility renovated inside, they welcome you with a present, and have small boat service during the day to take you to and out of the hotel in case you need it, you have to contact the hotel to let them know what time are you arriving then somebody will be waiting for you at the small port, we arrange our transportation from and to the airport with the hotel to avoid any miscomunication, so when the driver pick us up at the airport he contacted the hotel and they sent the boat to the port to wait for us, you'll have first hand view of the river, and really can feel what is to be in Varanassi, being here changed my life

2/10 Poor

Overrated and filthy
I booked this hotel since it's the only hotel with 4 and 1/2 stars near to Ganges River. First of all, hotel is in the worst area to get to. I found out after they provide boat service to the hotel but it's in the area nobody knows how to get to by tuk tuk. I had to drag my luggage through cow dung and spit infested streets for 20 min in 102 degree heat to get to. When I arrive, the staff told me i could arrange the boat but not apologetic at all. Also the hotel is in filthy condition. Sheets are dirty. It's in the Ganges river where it's polluted 100 times more than Indian Government level and they don't spray Mosquitoes or clean the window. Every corner is sketchy. Breakfast is the worst food, fruit juices are from can or water down. It needs to strip away the 4 and 1/2 stars to like 3 max. Hotel is also near the cremation area, so don't be surprise you run into dead bodies ready to be burn on your morning walk. The worst and I regretted so much booking this hotel.

8/10 Very good

Beautiful hotel on the ghats . Approachable only by walk or by boat call the hotel and ask for a boat on the day of the check in ... or you will end up lugging your bags thru the narrow lanes and steps !! Pick up at rajghat is the best option . If you want to enjoy the Ganges, this is the place to be . It’s about 15 mts from the Kashi viswanath temple ... quite some steps to climb before you reach the narrow lanes and the main road Elderly people may find it tough , but this is the hotel you want to be to enjoy the Ganges

8/10 Very good

Beautiful hotel on the Ghat. You need to walk thru the narrow lanes of Varanasi to reach here . Ask for a boat pick up when you check in as it will be difficult to walk thru the lanes with your bags - Ram ghat is the closest ghat. Call the hotel and ask for the boat pick up at rajghaat The temple is 15 mts walk with quite a lot of steps to climb . So if you have elederly people with you , you may want consider the same The hotel staff is very friendly and open to accommodate any of your requirements . They provide boat for the Ganga arti and rides on the Ganges . The nearest hotel/eating joint is also 15 mts Walk . It’s a great property to stay when in Varanasi
