Maybe no, maybe yes”
My initial review would have begun "Don't, unless you really have to." My first room was obviously marked for demolition, as the one next door was going through the process. No shower; squat toilet: dirt which made even me feel a bit icky - and roaches. This was a "deluxe AC" Having paid for that one, I was moved to another the next day. Western toilet (no paper, but if you're in Varanasi and not at a top hotel, that won't be a problem), shower that worked, some paint, but the roaches also followed me. On the whole, small ones. The redeeming feature of the hotel is it's position, right on Dashashwamedh Road, about 400m from the Ghat. Be prepared to walk a little on the way there; the street is often blocked to vehicles by the police, because of the large amount of people. The restaurant, the Aroma, is reviewed separately, but, briefly, it's ok. There is a great money changer about 50m down the road, on the other side; honest and even changed a torn note!

Basic hotel but a great location”
Location, Cable TV, Location
The hotel Lara-India was a class or three below the other hotels I stayed at in India but the only thing I wanted in Varanasi was location. The hotel is basic and has clearly been upgraded in recent times without changing it's basic facilities. It was however clean and safe and I certainly had no complaints about noise at night. The restaurant could be good, but most of the items I wanted to order were not available so I ate outside. The staff were helpful and polite, the door guard is quite a pleasant character. It is close to the main ghat and the old city alleys that are what Varanasi is all about.

Location, Food and friendly staffs
Advantage of this hotel: Located in the heart of the city, Very close to Ganges and Viswanath Mandir, Restaurant food is good but only Veg, Hotel staffs are cordial if things within their control Disadvantage of this hotel: Guarantee of the services. It is not important in this hotel whether you got the services for what you are paying. Like if you have booked a AC room, you have to pay the charge whether it immaterial that the AC is available or not. For me, 3 days the AC was not working but they charged the full amount. Reaching this hotel is a challenge as due to the road blockage, nothing will drop you till Hotel. With luggage sometimes it is challenging. Rooms are small, beds are not much big and you will find lot of cockroaches there.

Fair room for the price.”
Location, location, location.
The room is fair enough for the cost. The location is good, extremaly close to the Golden Temple. However, it can be really noisy at night. Wifi does not work in the room, which is bad.

Good Hotel At Central Place”
Location, Friendly and Helpful Staff, Suitable for Family Staying
I have visited Hotel Lara India in the month of October 2013 at stayed there from October 17th to October 24th. The hotel is centrally located at Godowalia Crossing and Viswanath Mandir is only 2-3 minutes by walk. Before going there I have heard that it is difficult to reach there by auto. But it is not at all a problem. Due to to traffic restriction auto goes up to Benyabag and then one have to take rickshaw to go to Godowalia. We have stayed in a A.C room so can't tell about non A.C room but A.C rooms are clean, not very specious but moderate. The Hotel staffs are helpful, attentive, and for my young toddler even they manage to get boiled water for drinking. Bathrooms are clean with hot and cold water. The rooms have power backup in case of power failure. It has Aroma restaurant which is fully vegetarian. Though it is costly but if one can afford then the foods are good, tasty and the restaurant is extremely clean. Here also the staffs are very polite and cooperative. So overall it is very good place to stay at Varanasi for family tour.

Nice comfortable room with newly reno bathroom. The washroom did smell a little from the pipes, but that is the case often in India. Overall a nice stay and good value.
