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.

Great view with terrible service

Stayed at Palace on Steps for 3 nights and had a mixed experience. The views are great from the river facing rooms. Even the rooftop restaurant has a great view of the river (beware the monkeys). Pros: a. Great location- next to the ghats. They even have a stair case to the ghats. b. Great view- If you have a river facing room. Sunrise from the balcony or on the ghats is an awesome experience and should not be missed. Cons: a. Rooftop Restaurant- Very poor service; below-par food. Avoid it. b. Rooms- Almost all rooms are broken and needs servicing. Pretty evident that the hotel management does not care. The blankets are stained and am not sure if they are ever cleaned! c. Service- Terrible. The hotel management is run by a bunch of crooks. They will try to fleece money out of you at every pretext. They tried to give me a basement room with no view even though I had pre-booked and paid for Maharaja Room (don't expect a palatial experience even in a Maharaja room). Had to get into a verbal altercation with them to get the rooms with views. I overheard the reception guy charging 30% extra to a tourist from Singapore for the same room which I had rejected! Am not advising anybody against staying at this hotel. Its a personal choice but please make sure you pre-book the room before you get in this place. One might be taken for a ride otherwise. Room Tip: Only choose rooms with river view.

Great hotel, but be wary of staff

Our room had amazing view of Ganges, restaurant staff were really helpful and food was good, Very good location just a walk down some steps and you're right on the river
Unfortunately as lovely as the hotel could have been for the money, there were a couple of major issues that were unacceptable. On our last night, there was a food in our room from the rain overnight. When we told the staff, there was no apology, no offer to help clean our all of our bags or anything. Most of our belongings including phones and computers were ruined. Dont arrange travel through hotel staff - the price on taxi went up by 50% just as we had to leave and the taxi driver didn't know the way - it was a US$300 lesson

Great View,But Room Below Par

Located on the ganges river, view and easy access to jetty/pier/ghat
I had booked the Maharaja Room. But I was not sure whether I was given the same as the room was rather small. If it is known room numberwise which are Maharaja rooms it will be better. This had the high tariff, but there was no complimentary drinking water or provision to make Tea or Coffee. The view of Ganga is great. At half the rate charged it will be good value for money.
