A splash of color in the heart of Varanasi”
Look no further. Perfect location near the Golden Temple, the main ghats, and a lot of restaurants and shops. Friendly Monu will fix, solve, book, find anything you need. The GH is clean, the rooms have shelves and hangers. But the main pro: this is an honest, hard working family. You can trust them with your belongings and you can trust their advice every time. They will try and make your trip better or leave you alone if that's what you want. This is just priceless. I hope Monu stays in business for a long time since I want to come back to Varanasi and stay at his lovely guest house.
lovely and warm place like home”
i like monu family paying guest house! the monu family is very nice! room and all other facility are good and clean. the price is reasonable. i truely recommend this place. Varanasi the city and this guest house are both very nice place to stay.
convenient,comfortable and good feeling”
I was really enjoyed in Monu Family Paying GH, whatever you have any requirments, the boss will try to answer or help you.talking is also very comfortable.exchange,water,shopping,goldentemple and Fuji restaurant are all around there where is very complicated small lane and near Gangga river.haha.but really worth staying there. A good drummer,maybe he will do a performance for you. we were really good lucky.we miss his all favors and smile.
monus guest house is great”
It was a pleasure to stay at Monu Guest House again. It's located in the city centre and the staff is super helpful. One day I was sick but they organized a doctor to come to the hotel within half an hour on a sunday. It also has a quite rooftop terrace which is the ideal place to calm down after exhasting strolls through the city.
You must take a fancy to this hotel”
It´s hard to find any hotel in Varanasi, but this hotel is very good located (near to Golden Temple and main ghats). This place becomes your favourite one. Very familiar, cute, sufficiently clean, little bit dark, but brightly colourful.. Mr and Mrs are beautiful, very charming and nice people. Highly recommended for its enjoyable athmosphere. Special feature - monkeys over the window!
Nice family friendly atmosphere, close to the river Ganges and main Ghat. The guest house is clean and cheap. Lots of famous restaurant and cafes around. Highly recommended.
Thank you Gyuris . Hope to see you again soon. Regards Monu
Cute place in perfect location”
Monu is really a friendly and funny guy and the house as well the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. However, beware of his additional services. The drop off service is arranged by his neighbour who tries to overcharge you with a Little car as well as does not follow agreements made the day before. And for the boat whereas Monu charges Inr. 100/Person you can find the whole boat for 100 to 200 only at the riverside. (We have been five People = 500 Inr.!!!)
Family hotel, very helpful..”
It was a great experience staying at Monu's. Guddu picked us up right after we hop off our train, welcoming with a very great smile. At Monu's, the room was cheerful, Monu and Madho were very helpful accommodating our needs for boat tour and rikshaw. It is also close to Gangga Fuji Resto, the market, and The Ganges. Everything was great!!
Friendly helpful family”
Monu couldn't be more helpful, we really enjoyed staying with him and his family. The room was pretty clean, there's a common space you can use, and the location is great. I'd stay here again.
Thanks Carl for staying with us .Hope to see you again . Cheers and safe travel. Monu
Quiet place to relax and good loc”
Good location, hot water and wifi. Monu was helpful to open me the door early when i came with a night train from gorakhpur, also was helpful during all my stay. If you look for a good place to relax this is your spot.
Friendly stay in Varanasi”
Not easy to find, Varanasi is way too chaotic to my taste but this guest hotel gives me a peaceful rest. The room is kind of very basic, colorful, with shared bathroom. The family are very friendly though speaking little English other than the owner himself. Wifi works well. A nice budget stay near the river.
Raisin able choice”
Not expensive to stay but the cleanness has a little bit problem. The staffs are very nice and warm welcoming. Generally it's a raisin able choice for Varanasi if you want to wander along the ghats.
Very nice and considerable service.”
I have arrived the guest house almost in the midnight, but they still provided kind service t me. The master also wake me up in the morning and show me the way to see the ganges river,that is so wonderful.
True Varanasi experience”
Location was great for visiting ghats, but a bit noisy at night, quite dirty walkways to get there, and several pestering touts. Staff very helpful to arrange any needs. Hardest beds in India though.
Clean Convenient And Value For Money”
The price paid for the room was value for money and free WiFi was great as well. Manu was very helpful during the stay. I would stay in this place again.
Simple clean guesthouse, perfect location”
Nice simple guesthouse, with color-painted walls and ceiling, in a wonderful position at the heart of old city and near the river. Rooms are quite clean, bed simple but comfortable. Staff helpful with every request, providing free pick-up from the train station and organizing trasfer to the airport whne leaving. In front of the guesthouse there's a bar-restaurant which was quite good.
Very friendly family who own and run the hotel”
very good location in the old city-very central.owners very helpful and friendly.small rooms and basic but very inexpensive. good internet connection even in rooms.no windows in the room and we shared a bathroom.dinner was available but we dined elsewhere. the river boating is worth doing just to see the golden temple from the river.
Really enjoyed my time here. Can't fault this place at all!! Value for money would be the best way to describe this place as the location is Awsome.
Comfortable, no-frills, great for backpackers”
