Spectacular- the only place to stay in Vanarasi”
Absolutely loved Brijrama Palace. It is located right on the Ganges, even though the river was very high so no boats running (due to a very good monsoon) it was still an amazing experience. When there are no boats, the hotel is accessed via the alleyways (about 20 mins walk). You will not be able to find it yourself but hotel staff will meet you and walk you through the lanes to the hotel. We received a lovely welcome when we arrived and the staff were well trained and very attentive. The attention to detail is wonderful. Spotlessly clean and beautifully restored, the food was great (and safe no worries about Delhi belly). There are lots of little cafes within walking distance but they all looked very basic. So everyone ate in the hotel restaurant. Live music every evening and in the morning. Free high tea, and lots of little extras. The staff take guests to the religious ceremony every evening , only 5 mins walk away & they have an arrangement with a local that guests if brijrama palace can use their roof top to watch rather than being sausages in the crowds which was great. Sitting on the roof in the evening watching all the kites and monkeys was very special Varanasi is fantastic & staying here only made the visit even more special. I did not want to leave .

Great Hotel”
The location on the main Dashwamedha Ghat is outstanding and the hotel arranges boat trips with its private boats on the Ganges. We enjoyed the spectacular Ganga Arati in the evening which the hotel offers on a complimentary basis to all guests. The rooms are fitted well with excellent bed linen, cupboard space and are comfortable. The breakfast and the high tea were also nice . The people in the hotel across all functions were warm , Meeting our needs and have exceptional attitude ( particularly Mr Akash their Hotel Guide). It’s the best Varanasi has to offer and among our best experiences in Asia

Stayed in july and again in september. Very Good and secure place. Staff and food are great. The hotel might seem expensive to some, but the extras thats provided, such as free boat to ganga arti, live music morning and evening, free ironing makes up for it. No other hotel in varanasi provides such a professional service. Highly recommended. Will visit again.

Dulcis in fundo : one expencive night in Varanasi (please no more then 1 )”
it was our last night in india (chosed Varanasi as last stop) after a night in a train "1class A / C" . We wanted to "abound" and sleep the last night ... comfortable. At arrival they served tea and snaks and the amenities are good. The structure is beautiful a reconstruction of some old ruins castle. The staff is friendly and attentive (if you manage to be nice to the waiters at breakfast they can suggest you some good typical dishes ). We took advantage of the free boat transfer on arrival and when we left. Excellent option. Getting there by land with big suitcases would have been a bit problematic. We did not have to organize the boat walk on the ganghe and it was also included the boat visit to the Arti ceremony (in any case, rather cheap activities if you organize yourself at the moment) and we were delighted by a beautiful evening dance inside the hotel. These small attentions, especially the dance show, made us forget the price that was the most expencive of all our 2 weeks

Relaxing despite the heat and crowds”
The hotel is luxurious and accommodating with a 14th-century Mughal India presence. The furniture and architecture certainty do not feel cheap. From the interior design to the crew's kurta uniform and the musical performances, the management of the entire hotel is superbly well put together. The crew were also extremely polite and courtesy we really felt like royalty. All of the snacks in the room were complimentary, and everyday we had a change of complimentary indian sweets. The only bad thing that really put us off is how the hotel operates their transportation services. Varanasi train station is only 15minutes away to the harbour (Raj Ghat, where the hotel fetch you to the hotel with a complimentary boat ride) while Varanasi Airport is 1hour away, yet charging the same price. Overall, it was still a good holiday, made even more wonderful with friendly crew. Special shoutout to Shubum :)

Peaceful silence, beautiful setting and excellent service.”
I flew in from Mumbay for only 2 nights. As from AirPort pick-up till drop off all the services provided by the hotel were impeccable. This gave me the opportunity to focus on my goal: learning about Varanasi. After spending intense time outside coming back to the hotel was like entering an oasis. Clean comfortable room, amazing surrounding and decoration, access to terraces viewing the river Ganges and the small Ghatt, elegant restaurant with very good kitchen (vegetarian, no alcohol) , some live music and dance performance in the evening and yoga in the morning! This ancient palace is about beauty not luxury and so it is not in contrast with its surrounding but is in perfect harmony with it. The staff was professional and very helpfull and friendly. The service smooth. Travelling alone, I felt safe. The bill was correct. This is not a cheap hotel but you get value for the money. I found it worthwhile.

Unbeatable location! The property is small and beautiful and the service is fantastic. ”
We had a wonderful stay at the hotel. Service and location are great. During monsoon, the elevator from the base of the ghats to the top aren’t operational due to high water levels, so access may be an issue for the elderly & young children. There are steps to go up- but we did see a lot of elderly people navigating them successfully. The hotel provides free boat rides to either ends of the ghat- from where you can carry on your journey either by foot or car/Tuk tuk. Apart from visiting the temples, must see the Ganga Arti (hotel arranged for a boat at no extra charge). This is a vegetarian hotel (eggs can be requested) and they have a great spread for breakfast. Our package includes dinner as well- and there are many options to choose from!

Brijrama Palace is a heritage hotel right by the Ghats of Varanasi! Their service and hospitality is outstanding , the location is brilliant - In summary highly recommended. Rain Gods played havoc with our itinerary and all the boats in Varanasi were cancelled due to excessive rain - but the team at Brijrama ensured guests were able to attend the Aarti in the evening, arranged for alternative tours on the road etc!!!! Thanks to the entire team for making our stay comfortable and enjoyable!

A peaceful, palatial retreat in the middle of hectic Varanasi”
We were lucky enough to call this place home for 3 nights in February and everything about our stay was simply outstanding. The property is immaculate. It's clean, calm and serene, a complete contrast to what lies beyond the doors! The restaurant is superb. It's fine dining (with perfectly pressed white linens and silver service) at its best, without the hefty price tag. The menu was varied and offered a good variety of Indian, western and Chinese dishes. Everything we ate was delicious and reasonable. Our room was immaculate, adorned with beautiful silk accents. The little extras such as the complementary tea & coffee service in the room, the free ironing service, the high tea served on the terrace overlooking the Ganga just added to the experience. Finally and most importantly, the service here is exceptional. Everyone at the hotel was professional and friendly, but a special thank you to Rakesh, Rohit, Vaishali & Amok who made our entire experience unforgettable.

Magical”
BrijRama is a magical place. Best possible location in Varanasi. Best possible service. The night boat ride (included with room) to see the night ceremonies on the ghats, as well as the "burning ghat", was exceptional. On this boat ride was the best guide we had while in India. The refurbishment of the property is just beautiful. The only slight complaint is the quality of the food in the restaurant. The included breakfast was acceptable, but the one dinner was pretty bad, and quite expensive. But nothing is perfect, so if you are going to Varanasi and have the funds available, you could make no better choice than BrijRama.
