        A splash of color in the heart of Varanasi”

        Extremely helpful staff, perfect location, clean, trustworthy, reasonably priced

        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.

        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.

        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.

        family-run business, within the old town, everything can be reached by walk

        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.!!!)
