OYO 16708 Sada Shiv Guest House
Dasaswamedh Ghat,Varanasi - View on map
"The stay was fine, except that we feel cheated for the owner denied any breakfast when asked for, while we clearly had "Complimentary Breakfast" on our bookings. As such, we had to pay for the services (which were again priced higher than the restaurant rates). I confirmed with my son who made the booking on behalf and tried to connect with the manager, but to no avail. Stay is fine, but if people cheat this way, it really counts as an unpleasant experience."

Diamond Hotel
Dasaswamedh Ghat,Varanasi - View on map
"Good food- slightly expensive as compared to other local hotels in the same bracket. Breakfast is very good. Not too many options, but whatever is available is really good. Overall the quality of food is very good. *Air conditioner are centralized and cannot be individually controlled. Rooms are clean, decent staff, you might have to buy drinking water bottles (only premium brand of Bisleri is available for Rs50). I think this is something that can be worked out by the hotel and should provide 20 Litres bottled water for no additional cost. Hotel has a Travel Desk (outsourced to Balaji Travels) which can advise you on locations to visit within and around Varanasi. The executive (Kaushal Jaiswal) advised very well and would recommend visitors to connect with him. The rates are per interest-point based and can be expensive. All points of interest are very close by and if you have time on hand, please do plan in advance and manage on own with Ola/local Autos. It will turn out to be cheap. Speak to locals and understand the area names and the points in between the autos ply. Sharing autos / private (private- reserve as the locals call) are very common. Bargain is the mantra as the initial quote normally is absolutely unreasonable. Hotel to Church (Girja ghar) is 2 kms and would cost Rs50 crossing and Rs 12 per head in sharing. 20 meters towards Kashi Vishwanath temple is Godowlia chowk. Shopping for Banarasi Sarees: Explore shops in Chowk. Here chowk is referred to entire Bansphatak Road-see map. Start walking from Godolia (square) on Bansphatak Road. Look for "Jalans" sores (its a chain) - overall decent rates and no bargains all fixed price. "

More about Varanasi

Varanasi is an ancient city, home to the holy River Ganges, which is one of the most important pilgrimage sites for Hindus. Varanasi is located in India’s Uttar Pradesh State, and is accessible by train from most other cities, by bus from some cities, and served by Varanasi Airport.

The Ganges River sees thousands of pilgrims every day, as it is a very holy site for Hindus and bathing in this river carry a great deal of spiritual significance. For visitors, just walking around the different steps – known as Ghats - and witnessing the religious ceremonies is an incredible experience. The river is also used as a burial site for those who were able to make it there in time for their death. While it’s a unique experience to witness most of what goes around in and around the river, it also offers a great deal of cultural and spiritual education so it’s important to be a respectful and open-minded visitor.

Spend at least one day exploring Varanasi on foot. The city is full of interesting and mostly ancient architecture and very small alleyways that are often too small for even the rickshaws. Walking among the neighborhoods and watching the activity of people all around is a great way to really get to know the city.

Of course, Varanasi is also home to many temples and places of worship. Near the famously intricate Dashashwamedh Ghat can be found the famous Vishwanath Temple, one of the holiest temples dedicated to the Lord Shiva. It’s an incredibly beautiful structure that carries a massive religious significance, definitely worth visiting.

There’s much more to see and experience in Varanasi, and the interactive map on this page is a great way to find out where the attractions and hotels can be found in this interesting city.
