    Room full of mosquito”
    Room was full of mosquito. Air-conditioning blew hot air all night. The power went out frequently and when it did the fan made a awful loud noise. Poor night sleep. Happy with the hot water and bed was comfortable. Sadly the blanket made my skin itchy.

    Beautiful location on Ganges”
    Low season, so Varanasi quiet, hot but good AC in hotel, and a good discount for very nice rooms. A beautiful location with view of Ganges from room's window. Evening, they drive the buffalo's and cows to river to bathe so there's lots of mooing and grunting at the water front. right outside- lovely. Restaurant is on terrace with view of Ganges- you can go up and see the sunrise. Mr Amit the guide at the hotel had great English and was very gentle and kind. He took us to the temple of the poet Kabir, and also shopping. He arranged for a rowboat so we could see the activity at the ghats and helped us with meals and airport transfer. Mr Patel, the manager at the hotel was also helpful and gentle and attentive. A great stress reliever after a week of doing too much.

    good location, but...”
    locaction at ganges was really good.
    It was all about selling tours, tours, tours and tours. Before checkin the started to make sales pitches and that continued over our stay despite the fact we early pointed out that we already booked our tours with another company. Food in restaurant were decent hindi food and all had to be booked in advance which wasnt very fun. The only advantage this hotel have is the location which is nice with the ganges view and the five minute walk to assi ghat.

    Location, large room, wonderful staff
    The staff was excellent at the hotel, yet we were in Varanasi at the end of December and it was extremely cold in the evening with heavy fog. There is no heating in the hotel, it was so cold in my room that I had to sleep fully dressed, with a fleece jacket and a ski cap. The hotel must provide heat during the cold months.

    Overpriced and no comfort in the winter”
    The hotel is not at all a 4 stars. no heating anywhere in the building. No hot water in our room. the staff is not professional and rather passive aggressive. for the same price we could have got a better place in a more convenient location and with a proper breakfast and heating. No more in this place and would suggest to go elsewhere

    Clean room, quiet area & great rooftop
    Just south of Assi Ghat. This is a quiet area. Good for sleeping but downside is that it's too far from main road. A 10 min walk required to catch a rickshaw or visit a restaurant. Good rooftop and nice staff though.

    The break fast is a big mishap , only bread omlet served only once . The employees are not at all trained . They are not aware of how they should speak to a guest. When we requested some thing they asked to come and collect from reception. Long way to go in Terma of training of staff. Who in the world Said this hotel is 3 star . It is 1 star . No power back up for ac .

    Good location banks Ganges”
    Location tours
    The hotel is a good location on banks Ganges. The downside it needs tuktuk to go anywhere. It is a short walk to Assi Ghat where you can get tuktuk. A one way trip in a tuktuk to anywhere in Varanasi is 100 rupees. There are various strategies by tuk tuk drivers to get more. From the hotel you can arrange tuktuk tour of 3 temples 450 INR boat ride evening 700 INR and return Sarnath 600 INR. The food service is terrible and I had to wait 2 hours for dinner. It is not a hotel and if you want hotel service stay in a hotel. If you want change linen or towel or empty rubbish bin you have to ask. If you do not require service and want a nice place next to Ganges stay here. The location is superb

    Kaksi yötä Ganga Monasteryssä”
    Hotelli oli uudehko ja siisti. Huone oli mukava, riittävän tilava ja miellyttävästi sisustettu. Sänky oli leveä ja hyvä. Henkilökunta ystävällistä.
    Vierailu sujui hyvin. Hotellin ympäristö on tottumattomalle vähän nuhjuista seutua, mutta hotellin etupuolella on oikein rauhallista ja hyvä näköala Gangesille. Hotelli on kävelymatkan päässä Assi ghatilta. WC oli siisti ja lämmintä vettä tuli. Suihkun suunnittelu ei ollut ihan parasta a-luokkaa, mutta kyllä siellä itsensä puhtaaksi sai. Kaiken kaikkiaan miellyttävä kokemus, varsinkin hotellin edulliseen hintaan nähden.
