Great location near burning ghat”
Restaurant, location, price
The location of the Sankartha Guest House is great as it is very close to the burning ghat and the other main ghats. Although with the many skinny alleyways around the hotel it can be incredibly hard to find your way there and around. The roof top restuarant is good value and very convenient. Be slightly wary of the main owner but otherwise good value for money

Good price and neat rooms, but not a good location”
Rooms were neat.. Rent was cheaper, near to temple and river
We were checked in late evening, food was ok, rooms are clean. service ok. We booked a car to Gaya, the hotel guy charged nearly 2000rupees extra , better contact car driver directly than thru hotel. Apart from these things, you ge things fair enough for what you pay. I give 3.5/5 for this hotel.

The room is very simple and not very clean. The same room will be offered to you when you book either single or double room.

Great price, ok location”
Price
basic amenities provided. soap, towels, toilet paper are not provided. the room and bathroom is not clean. however, we brought our own bedsheets and towels which made it more comfortable. wifi works occasionally. employees claim that it is the internet provider's fault. it is odd that the internet service on their computer is not affected... if you don't expect too much, you won't be disappointed. you pay for what you get. if the wifi doesn't work, just pay them 40 rupees/hour to use the internet. i would stay again.

It was ok ~”
Close to sights
Close to the action, I however did not like Varanasi one bit. Hotel was accomodating but you must walk some distance through urine and feces to get there. There will be many beggers, drug dealers, dead bodies and rank smell. If you are not cool with these things stay somewhere away from the Ghats.

Great location, delicious food!!”
Rooftop restaurant, clean rooms, kind helpful staff
The narrow lane ways of Varanasi can be difficult to navigate and may take a day or so to get your bearings. Hotel Sankatha's location, specifically its proximity to the Burning Ghat, make it easy to find. The rooftop restaurant in addition to providing delicious food (thanks Ravi!) at a reasonable price also provides a beautiful view of the Ganges. There is Internet available in the hotel lobby but only by using their computers; no wifi unfortunately. The owner was helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly. Overall, a great stay.
