Good Hotel but rooms are too small. We booked for 3 adults and 3rd bed (actually mattress) could barely fit in with no moving space left out. Otherwise hotel is good, good location, good staff & good food. Price seems to be on higher side for this type of property.
Excellent location and right next to the a lot of exciting activities and shops around ”
A clean hotel with a fantastic location on Assi ghat. Only wished the room had a view of the ghat and/or river. I had hoped and assumed that would be the case. Was told if i had called ahead for that it could have been the case. But the location was great with good attentive staff. The breakfast was okay. Not great but okay and hygienic. Would recommend overall to other visitors.
Quality hotel in a good location.”
The hotel offers sanctuary in the chaos that is Varanasi. All areas are well finished and attractive. Food is mainly Indian but breakfast offers eggs any style. The location is on the steps of the Ghats and allows easy access to either boats or walking. There is work opposite which is currently muddy but that is temporary. Good hotel and although not cheap, is value for money.
Wonderful smaller colonial hotel in an excellent location in Assi ghat, just steps away from the Ganges. Nicely decorated, clean and spacious room. Great buffet breakfast and a rooftop restaurant. Staff were very helpful with every request, oh and take any of the private walking / river tours with Pappu ... worth the money. Recommended !
It’s a few steps away from the Ganges river. It’s a charming 130-year old building equipped with the basics for a good rest. Most times, you would need to keep on asking them for the same thing. Like I asked them twice for the laundry, twice for a tissue roll, thrice for the extra bed, and thrice for an extra towel. They just don’t do it. I needed to be at the front desk for them to move.
Comfortable on the Ghats”
Varanasi can be a tough place to stay, and directly on the ghats?! Palace on Ganges was comfortable and provided what we needed. Some of the rooms are a bit small, but considering we made a last minute change, the staff was accommodating. The breakfast was delicious, and the staff helped to coordinate some of our site-seeing. It might be a little on the pricey side. However, the location is the best! It’s calm at night, but also an end point so easy to go up the the river.
Nice play to stay, great location, food ok”
Agoda misrepresented this booking. It said one price for a triple and list the three bed types. Then when wentnto book it was more expensive because they then charged us for the third bed. When we got there none of their rooms had three beds and first wanted to Hamm us in a very small room. Finally, the gave us a decent size room and actually set up a throw bed. They treated us to dinner at the hotel to try and make up for it. We got a huge discount in Agoda and ended up being a very nice place to stay. Nice shops and a few cafes near by. Very close to The Ganges and we had a lovely walk along the river. Do the Arti ceremony and rent the boat to watch it from the river. It is worth it and a must.
We stayed here for 2 nights in March 2016. The hotel has a fabulous location and is perfectly placed to explore the ghats. The rooms were clean and comfortable. The rooftop restaurant served good quality food at a reasonable price. The reception staff were extremely helpful and organised sunset and sunrise boat trips on the Ganges and transport to and from the airport at very reasonable rates. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay in this quirky hotel.
Good food for breakfast and dinner. Nice personable hotel with friendly staff who are flexible and willing to help. AT Assi Ghat so a nice 20 minute walk down the length of all the ghats, allowing a better experience than just sticking to the two central areas. No hot water for two days which was a bit of a let down and did affect the overall enjoyment however the staff compensated by bringing large buckets of piping hot water :-)
We enjoyed our stay. Vanarasi is like nowhere else on this earth, and this Hotel is right on its cusp. You can walk straight out the door and you are you have the Ganges at your doorstep. The hotel is very clean comfortable. I would stay there again. Recommended.
Well located, clean secure rooms and helpful staff”
Really enjoyed the stay here. Location is really handy and feels more relaxed than the main Ghat areas. Rooms are each different and the standard of the upgrade to the building is high. Comfortable bed although linen was badly pilled. I'm sure if I had asked it would have been replaced - but wasn't important enough to worry about. Rooftop area nice - although no views when sitting having meals. Met other interesting travellers at breakfast because tables can be communal. Highly recommend for both it's charm generally and it's excellent location.
comfortable and easy access to all attractions”
I throughly enjoyed my stay at the Palace, the staff were welcoming and very helpful. The hotel is in such a good location, taxi right to the door and the ghats are right there. Loved walking along the ghats for hours. Was in room 107 had a window no view just a white brick wall which didnt bother me the action is outside and very quiet. The room was very clean and nicely decorated in warm colours. I highly recommend this hotel right on the ganges and would stay here again.
Perfect. The only complaint I may have is the Agoda-hotel-deal, which made it impossible to have me refunded a cancelled third night – which cancelled more then 3 days before the actual night. That is a much too good deal for a hotel which will never have difficulties to find guests, and to fill up the vacant room again.
Pleasant, near Ganges, air conditioned”
Pleasant, quiet and clean stay in a chaotic and dirty city. Food was good standard, staff was friendly. Ganges was high up to the hotel and entrance was only possible over the back roof tops, but service was good. Colonial room had great view onto the ghat.
Great location but over priced”
The hotel was quite nice, very clean and the rooms were of a good standard. The location was excellent only a short walk to Assi Ghat, although if you want to walk to main ghatt its about 30 minutes along the river or a 20 minute tuk tuk ride. I wopuld stay here for l i felt it was over priced. There are hotels with a better view, closer to the river and with much more atmosphere for less.
Good hotel and great service.”
we arrived 5 hours before check in but they were able to sort us out. the room was comfortable and there was plenty of hot water. location is excellent for exploring the ghatts and it was nice to use the roof garden to watch everything go on but not be in it! reception was able to sort out boat trips on the ganges, taxis and trips to sarnath. the staff were polite and nothing was too much trouble. food was ok and the live music of an evening was a nice touch. all in all a good stay!
Lovely hotel and service with a smile”
Comfortable, clean hotel well located for a couple of days sight seeing in Varansi. Staff were most helpful, friendly and efficient. Restaurant adequate for a quick meal. Price good value I would recommend to friends and family
Decent hotel but pretty far from the action”
If you are looking to be down near the action this hotel is a bit far away. It's on the Ganges at the start of the ghats but it is quite a walk to main ghat, the burning ghats or things like the golden temple or the blue lassi. Staff is friendly It's a good place to pick up a boat (about 100 rs) It'll cost you 60-80 rs to get down to the market by auto It'll cost you 40-50 rs to go by bike
Good location and beautiful room”
I have a good sleep at that hotel especially after you have to deal with hassels from touts and experience very `sacred' atmosphere of Vanarasi in daytime. But please don't ask for the arrangement of a boat trip from the hotel. It is madly expensive.
Overall a good experience”
