Australian from Australia
Standard Room
Stayed 3 nights in March 2017
Overpriced for the level of cleanliness/position and facilities ”
Please note this is an Australian review with Australian standards , but still being mindful of what country we were in and the price range of the motel compared to other motels in a similar price bracket . After walking through filth and up filthy dirty stairs to get to this motel we were suprised when the entrance looked so nice . Well that's where it stopped. The courtyard entrance and the room was the only clean areas. The outdoor roof top tables and chairs were filthy dirty , dusty with bird or monkey poo on them every time we went to use them . The enclosed so called roof top restaurant ( that has no view) was ABSOLUTELY FILTHY with no organisation at all , we had to go get someone from downstairs every time we wanted to eat- even for breakfast which was included . After deciding the outdoor rooftop area was the pick of the bad bunch to eat at , we were faced with complaints from the grizzling waiter ( every time) because he had to walk up so many stairs . We then tried ordering room service ( because the room cleanliness wasn't too bad to eat in ) we had to ask twice to get him to agree to bring it to our room again because of the stairs . NOT OUR PROBLEM THAT THE KITCHEN IS UP SO HIGH ! The position of the motel made it difficult to get to and from any other restaurants, due to the fact it is on the wrong side of the burning ghat and it was horrible , and very intense to walk through there twice a day. The stairs leading up to the motel had so much litter , cow poo and cow and human wee on it that you could smell the stench from the courtyard of the motel. The guy running reception was very friendly and helpful to our needs but when we asked for the wi fi pass word he said the monkeys had chewed through the wires and there was no wi fi ( dispite us being able to see 4 active Treebo wifi modems on our phone . I realised then that he was not telling us the truth. So I went back down to reception and showed him our booking and that it said free wi fi and sho

one of the best hotels GANGA RIVERSIDE”
Cons - 1O to 15 minutes walk from the main road. Only Rooftop Restaurant at 4th floor. Limited Menu. NO LIFT. Pros - best Riverview Hotel. Almost centre of 80 ghats. XLNT food. Clean & neat rooms (Renovated Heritage building). Next to Scindia ghat. If u don't mind climbing steps, take the top floor RIVER VIEW rooms.

Great rooms but no wifi”
Wifi was in reception and restaurant only, not in the rooms as advertised, though the room itself was great - large and clean.

A surprising gem ”
This hotel came as a very pleasant surprise. This recently renovated hotel retains a lot of it's 1950s character, in a building that's over 300 years old. Honestly, it looks a lot better in person than it does in the photos. We were both completely surprised by the character and charm of this hotel. The room was smaller but very cozy and quite pretty with very high ceilings. However, most sensationally about this hotel was everything was in very good working order much like the five star hotels in the area, including hot water and electricity. The best point of the hotel remains the staff, they were overly friendly and very very helpful absolutely every one of our needs or expectations was met and exceeded

Too much focus on selling you additional services and not enough in insuring basic facilities”
All started ok. As usual. Warm welcome. Tour of the facilities. Possibility in choosing among 2 spacious rooms as we had decided to padd a little more to go for a heritage room with view. But quickly things started going from annoying to inacceptable 1/ we ended up never having wifi at our floor during more than a day. There was wifi at reception 4 floors down but not at our floor. "City engineers on it. Will be ok tomorrow". Of course... 2/ never got hot water in our room. 1 boy come up. 2 boys came up. It took me to loose my calm to get offered a room change which eventually offered lukewarm water 3/ before even entering our room were we already swamped with all their touristic offers which looked more expensive than in our previous hotel in Varanasi... But we signed up for the morning boat trip to watch the morning ceremony at Assi Ghat. Later during the day we were told to be down at 6AM the morning after. I found it was late and asked twice but time was confirmed. 6AM the day after I am talking to the boat driver who confirms morning ceremony is over as it started at 5AM... Epic fail... Back to bed 4/ Not even a locker which worked... after complaining at least twice I was eventually handed an emergency key which got stuck in the keyhole... When offered a new room we were told wifi problems were going to be solved... but new room was the one right next door... Obviously not the solution to our wifi issue... So we simply decided to get out of the place. We lost 1 night of our booking and never got a refund... Whatever... Better loosing 1 night than ones precious holidays in such places. Oh... we stayed at Ganpati and Anka during our stay at Varanasi and all services mentioned here above never caused any issue...

East view ”
The staff are unbelievable. Extremely friendly and helpful. Location is great if you like to be near the burning ghats. It is very difficult to find as you need to take a boat to get to hotel. Taxis drop you off but there is no way to navigate the back alleys. Contact hotel to arrange pickup. Wifi is spotty. Only good at reception. No breakfast to speak of. Toast and coffee. They outdid themselves for my birthday though. It was one I'll always remember. Thank you for that.

We spent 2 nights at the Heritage Room of the said Hotel. The site of the hotel is very attracting. ”
It is very difficult to comment whether there is any House-Keeping Department or Staff in the hotel. In fact, there is no house-keeping at all. The service of cleaning the room, changing the bed sheets and providing at least 1(one) bottle drinking water every day is very usual for such hotel. The standard of menu of the restaurant is so so. But the specific observation is that the conduct of the Staff is very satisfactory especially of Mr. Bajaj and Mr. Tapan Guha.
