      Varanasi in itself is an assault on the senses, so this place was a great little refuge from the magical madness. Incredible view of the ghats but make sure that your room is facing away from the streets or you will be kept up by warring children and warring dogs.

      Standard rooms values for money”
      I stayed here for two nights. I really love this room with balcony and Ganges river view. The staffs are friendly. Rooftop restaurant is ok though they only serve vegetatian foods. Pros: it takes several minutes' walk to the Dashashwamedh Ghat. Cons: close the balcony's door even if you just want to take a snap as the monkey will soon enters to your room quietly and reaches for stuffs. Also prepare yourself with the smell of urine as you will walk by a public toilet near the gate to river.

      Most amazing view”
      The location makes Ganpati very special. I stayed in two different rooms - number 3, the most expensive and 18, I think the next level down- and found waking up there one of the greatest pleasures of four weeks in India. That view of dawn over the Ganges... Rooms are colourful and beds are comfortable. It's not a slick or smooth place and the staff aren't either- though they vary; there's generally a real willingness to help. The rooftop restaurant food is so so but what a view from the restaurant! I'd love to go back there.

      Great service - central ghat location. ”
      The hotel was in a good location and we were met by a staff member and bag carrier from our taxi to walk us through the small streets where taxis can’t go. Great views of the busy ghat from the restaurant and the food was really well priced. We were out in a room not attached to the main hotel which wasn’t our preference but wasn’t too much of a problem except the WiFi didn’t work that far away.

      Amazing location, great views, A/C, friendly staff”
      My wife & I stayed here for our first trip to India & cannot recommend this guest house enough. The location is excellent, within a 5min. walk to the largest ghat in Varanasi & also one of the cremation ghats. Staff was very kind & helpful, & the rooftop restaurant/bar view was spectacular & a great place to relax/eat at end of day. Try the rice pudding with fruit! Highly recommend doing the walking tour with Ballu- he was so kind & helpful, & really became a friend of ours after 5 days in Varanasi. Ballu lives next door with his family & is an amazing guide for this spectacular city. Also, the morning boat tour is a must!

      We had gone to attend early morng mangal aarti attemple. No hot water in winter as heater had stopped working. Hotel didn’t even bother to check it. No facility at all for hot water in wash basin. No help from people only after a lot of complaints managed to get some alternate arrangement. people not verycordial.

      My room was really clean and spacious. The thing I didn't appreciate was that I asked for airport pick up which didn't happen so I had to find my own way. I also asked to book one more night and I've been told it's fully booked but my friend could book a room.

      Amazing view from the river view rooms so grab one of those. The rooftop restaurant is also a great place to sit with a book and drink chai. The staff is courteous and the prices for additional services /tours are very reasonable. I loved my 2 days spent there. The location is great since it right next to the ghats and temples. The food at the restaurant is decent.

      The best location with views of the river”
      We stayed in a room with view of Ganga river and definitely we would stay again here. The property is in very good conditions and decoration is also a plus. Very convenient location to stay close to the most important ghats. Maybe a little pricey compared to other hotels in the same area. It is quite difficult to find the place, the streets in old quarter Varanasi are chaotic.

      Location is perfect, with private access to the most important ghats. Staff is very attentive, rooms are clean. Reception was helpful with anything we needed. The restaurant on the rooftop offers superb views of the main ghats, the food is decent and prices reasonable (for western tourists). I would cone back here without any hesitation.

      Hands down the best place I could have stayed! The location was prime for viewing the fire aarti in evening, the ghats, basically right in the hub. I cannot tell you how immaculate the room was, so clean and tidy! Great hot water, AC, and safety, They really took care of me from picking me up at the airport, to an amazing walking tour with Aman, and even helped me care for my sprained ankle. Safe and clean stay 5/5 - will be staying here again!

      Perfectly located right on the banks of the river. Stay in the main house if your budget can stretch to it, although the annex was fine. We peeked into the most expensive rooms and they looked amazing. At night we ate in the roof top restaurant which has a basic menu, but the views! If you've gone to Varanasi then this is the place for you at night, you oversee all that it has to offer. Enjoy.

      Excellent Value for Money and Location”
      Good: 1) Location - AWESOME. Next to evening Aarti (5 minutes walking distance) and the Funeral pyres (5 minutes walk). I woke up early morning and walked along the ghats as this place is right on the ghats. Was magical. 2) Price - For a room with a balcony that faces the Ganges you cant beat this place for price. Its good value. 3) Value for money activities - When I booked this place they emailed me all the activities they can arrange. Allot of choice and excellent value for money. Made the trip to Varanasi easy as the itinerary was basically done for us. 4) Roof terrace Restaurant - After a long day sight seeing coming back with a cold bear (reasonably priced) and sitting on rooftop terrace and looking out at the Ganges was amazing

      We stayed in the annex which was a building away from the main building which meant walking through a neighbourhood laneway with children playing. The room was basic and clean with a window and bathroom. The bed was comfortable. We found the guesthouse restaurant was great for breakfast and service was very good. If you choose this place, ask for a room with a balcony with a view of the Ganga.
