        Authentically Indian hotel, very clean and comfortable. Delicious Indian and Western food. Noisy on one side, quieter on the other side. Warm atmosphere. Staff friendly and helpful. Felt well taken care of by Rakesh the waiter who was very sweet. Because this city is like a labyrinth without sidewalks, and because this was our first visit in India, it was helpful to have the in-hotel travel guide, Yadab. He made good suggestions as to where to visit, helped us get a SIM card, really knew his way around, which was not only helpful in Varanasi but also in Allahabad, some 130 kilometres away. Wifi was intermittent, sometimes strong, sometimes weak. Safety box and modern plugs with built in adaptors were appreciated. Renovated bathroom was nice.

        Clean, Wifi, friendly service
        I choose this hotel from its location near the train station, even far from the river but situated near the quiet park and easy to travel. The room is very clean, large bed and area with balcony, toilet is very clean and large. Wifi has a satisfied speed. The price is rather higher from those besided the river but now considering easier to reach, clean with big room, nice staffs. (Some besided the river had problem with monkeys "on the rooftop view" and some ghats are cremation sites). I had to catch the 2 AM train, the staff kindly contact the rickshaw driver who reach on time.

It's location is not bad - it is in a very quiet area - which for India is quite something! The breakfast food was good. If you are are on a budget - a good place to stay.

        Hotel staff are friendly and nice ,The location is pretty good,
        i had a nice stay at the hotel .I was travelling with my kid 13 months old I had booked a extra bed in my room as there was no place to accommodate a extra bed the hotel upgraded me to a bigger room. My room was pretty much clean only had a lizard and some spiders here and there though I was given clean bedsheets but my blanket was not clean . Clean towels were provided and I was pretty happy with the clean toilet which matters for me the most. Please do not except rooms as shown in the photo as its not the same .. I would request the hotel to put in original photograph of the room , as we arrive at the hotel with a expectation.overall a nice place to stay as it was quite./location was good/ and staff were friendly. I would consider it a average hotel.

        Food, clean, spacy
        We had a very comfortable stay there last year so we went back again. They did a lot of renovation that's probably why they charge much more now and don't book the transportation from them as its overly priced. The food is still pretty good. But the service of the front desk is not very nice. The old staff from the kitchen was still nice though.

        Great alternative to the Ghats”
        Clean, quite, nice rooms
        Though it's a little far from the ghats, I preferred to stay in this area because it's more quite and cleaner. Had the feeling that all the hotels and guesthouses at the ghats are run down a little. Also coz the ghats are super smelly and dirty. Buddha hotel was like a little oasis compared to that. It will take you 20-30 min walk to the main ghat or just take a rickshaw for 30-50 r. and you ll be there in 10 min. Also the ride itself is great fun. The rooms are super clean and well designed, the breakfast - great! Would definitely stay here again. Just beware of the taxi staff - they will try to show you their "factory and showroom" where you can buy stuff cheaper. Well, but who doesn't try to show you those in India ...

        We stayed at the hotel for 4 nights and were very happy with it. Staff were very helpful. Whatever we asked was done properly. Hotel breakfast was quite limited but lunch or dinner from the hotel restaurant was pretty good. There is a very good restaurant called anapurna near the hotel.bit far from the Ganga but surrounding was quite so we liked more. Highly recommend the hotel.

        The friendly staff, the location, the facilties
        Hotel Buddha caters mainly for Indian clientele, but, as Europeans, we had an excellent stay there too. To Western standards the hotel may seem basic but the staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. We had a pefectly adequate twin-bed room with a little balcony even. It was quiet, the air-conditioning worked and although a shower curtain would have kept the bathroom floor dry after a shower, we were very comfortable. There was only flourescent lighting on the ceiling whereas bedside lamps would have made the room seem cosier, but everything worked and was clean. The hotel is perfectly situated in a quiet square, not far from the town centre and is a 30 minute walk to the main ghat. You can take a rickshaw but we enjoyed the walk as you can stop, browse in the shops, eat ice cream or drink freshly squeezed orange juice along the way. The breakfast was simple but you could ask to have your eggs cooked anyway you liked, and there was a choice of Indian food too. We ate in the hotel restaurant for dinner once where the food was good but basic. There's a great restaurant around the corner called Sri Annapurna which has excellent food and is quite cheap. It was full of locals - always a good sign. We liked it so much we ate there twice. One of the days we booked a trip with Gopal, the tour guide, and at 2700 IR for the day including a car and driver, it was well worth. He showed us around the main Hindu and Buddhist sites, and his obvious love of the city was infectious. At sunset he arranged for us to go on a boat trip up the Ganges to see the cremations and then back for Arti, Hindu evening prayers, which was a spiritual and magical experience, and I'm an atheist! Altogether, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel. It homely, basic but comfortable, and the staff cannot be faulted. Excellent value, quiet location, very friendly. There's even free wifi in the rooms. What more do you want?

        Great place to stay, unless you go to varanasi in summer. A/C was not working during power-cuts in daytime. But, the hotel provided power to A/C on generator during the night time 10pm to morning. Staff were helpful and kind. Food was great. It would have been great if they could provide at least a air cooler in the dining area, during the day. Otherwise a good hotel to stay in.
