like we never left the ghats

view. cant find 3 good things
If you want to feel like you never left the ghats this is a good place to stay. We could not even sit down for dinner without the staff trying to sell us a tour or book trains and transport through them. Initially they lied to us and said that the train we wanted to take was sold out and they had the only remaining tickets. A few hours later after we had got them from the train station no dramas and without paying their hefty comission. We also checked out to another hotel as this was way too expensive for the quality of the room. After they had found this out, the hostility that we felt when checking out was horrible. I very rarely take the time to write reviews but I would not stay at this hotel

Beautiful river views at this friendly guest house

The staff. The view from room. The location
very comfortable, clean and spacious suite room with river views, air con and TV. Bit of a walk down narrow streets to get to it but always some one willing to help you find it and carry your bags. The restaurant is very basic and we only had drinks. You will need your own toiletries and towels. The laundry service is very good and very cheap! We had a wonderful guide Ricky who spoke great English and showed us the real Varanasi.

Great location and stunning view from my room!

Very central
a bit hard to find down narrow alleyways but there are a lot of locals to assist (for a small fee). also known now as "palace on the steps". central to everything along the river.

Great location

Wonderful view and good location along the ghats
Varanasi is an amazing place and has a lot of budget accommodation of which this is one. The rooms are very very basic but adequate.Water was hot and the room clean on arrival, however not that well maintained. Roof top restaurant served very good freshly prepared food.

Budget guest house in good location

All the ghat accommodation in the budget range are of similar quality and this is no different. Basic accommodation but in a very good location, just a few minutes walk from the main burning ghat. However the rooms are tired and dirty. The staff lacking in the usual charm you find with most people in India. The restaurant though it actually good with good and very fresh food, be prepared for a little wait though as it is all freshly prepared. Just a shame they couldn't manage to do service with a smile.

Do not stay here

Nice view, nothing more
rude staff, mould/mildew growing thick on the walls, loud monkeys outside at night keeping you awake, no hot water and at one stage no running water at all.... varanasi is beautiful though and very much worth visiting. don't go to india without walking/boating the ghats of the ganga. just stay somewhere else!!!

A big disappointment

near the river
We had booked well in advance a room with a river view. The room was basic, which we expected for the price, but could have been cleaner. The worst thing is the management seems to make a habit of not honouring bookings, from what we were told while there and from reading other reviews. On top of this we were overcharged in the restaurant and overcharged for a taxi to the station. We would not recommend this hotel.

Great location but with spectacular view

great location
Ajay guesthouse is quite good value as views are amazing and locationis good, however the room we had was tired, wallpaper literally hanging off the wall, I know its a budget hotel but I think the hotel owner should show their customer some respect by addressing the general maintenance issues...afterall it doesnt cost that much to remove damaged wallpaper and repaint the room, or replace the discoloured towels or pillows... small detail like this would make a huge difference...
