Truly said - Home away from home

Excellent Stuff support, Room ambiance like home, Value for Money
The hotel stuffs specially two managers are really co-operative and they happily satisfied all our requirements without any question asked. We booked via at first i was little bit in doubt how it will be! but at the end of the vacation i must say this hotel named Palace on steps and it's owner and it's manager and all other stuffs - are really so helpful, ready at your service and will never make you disappointed if you asked for any help or assistance. They arranged our site-tour, they pick us from the main road where actually we expecting, they even allowed us to stay some couple of hours extra without any charges after our check-out, because our train was 3 hrs late, well over all it's pleasant experience while staying at Palace on steps. Thank you so much.

room facilities is not good.

close to the Ganges River、Kindness of the hotel staff、Priceless
There are hotels(Ajay hotel and Hotel ELENA) along the Ganges River , but You can be difficult to access to the hotel . You will take time Between 2 and 1 hour to access there from airport and must walk further 20 minutes in Road , such as the narrow maze, in which there are many bulls and cows and stray dogs walking wandering . The finest class of the rooms , there are a minimum equipment , for example TV and air conditioning but normal room you do not expect any more. They have some boat tours on Ganges River every night. I think that is very good. Having a breakfast in the restaurant's terrace while watching the Ganges river in the morning was very good . Ganges riverside location is the most good point , but it is the biggest problem that there is no ways of transportation to there . Hotel staff was usually good, except that the soon to say "money" .

The best view

Location staff food safety
We had the top room with AMAZING view of Ganga. A balcony to ourselves. Peaceful and nice hotel. Especially when it is located at the Dashwamedth Gath and we went there during Holi. Mr Ajay the owner of the hotel was helpful. Warned us not to go out after 8pm a day before the holi due to safety reason. Invite us to go out with him and other hotel guests to watch the burning ceremony but we were to tired to go out. He booked us boat for rs100 each or else we need to pay rs1000 if we deal by ourselves. He even kind enough to help us on buying a white kurta for the holi because most of the shops are already closed while we went out to watch the aarti ceremony. Food served at the cafe was amazing and delicious. Staffs were friendly and we had a really really great time. Asked for late checkout at 2pm with no fuss :)

Superb Location. Hotel could be maintained better.

Stay was good. But do not recommend eating in this place. Unlike some of the other Ghat roof top resturants, it is not clean nor maintained.
