Close to the main ghat, Dasaswamedh, this is a great location. Watching the goings on along the Ganges from the rooftop cafe is mesmerizing.

We, me and my daughter, stayed in Sita Guesthouse for 6 nights. We enjoyed staying here especially because the staff is super friendly. We had a beautiful view on the Ganga and its steps to both sides.

              The distance and the approach to the guest house are suitable for the able-bodied and the not-so-old. So if you plan to book this place, ensure you do not have people who've difficulty in walking and climbing/alighting the steep stairs. The Housekeeping needs to be spruced up. They've excellent, helpful and courteous staff. Pandey ji the Manager, Vishu the guide, Manoj, Prashant and Yadav ji in the restaurant are ever so forthcoming. If the quality of the food improves a little more (since Varanasi offers a great cuisine), the place is an excellent one. The focus of the guest house however seems the foreign tourist. i'am however told that the Management soon plans to introduce a viable transport system from the motorable road to the guest house. All in all, a good place to stay.

              Best property in Varanasi on a budget.”
              A great property if you want to be close to the Ganga. Right on the steps. Very close to The Ganga Arti as well. Also the Ghat is a very good for bathing as the steps are clean and go well inside the Ganga. If you stay in Room 407 the views are the best only other property with a similar view is Brijrama Palace with a price 46k per night plus taxes. So this room at 7k is a steal.

              The hotel is very good. Owner is very helpful. Room was nice with Ganga View. I would definitely recommend the hotel for young people. The main problem is the entrance. You have to use a remarkable numbers of stiff stairs for going to the hotel, which is very difficult for aged persons. Though the owner of the hotel gave us the way to enter from the first floor so we were able to avoid at least 50% of the stairs.

              Location overlooking Ganges
              One must take into account the City of Varanasis as a whole when making a review. It is a very old city with mainly crumbling buildings, narrow laneways and lots of poverty. Our hotel was in a perfect location. Rooms are small but have all one really needs, without beig lavish. Pay a little extra and take a room with balcony overlooking the river and not stop movement. Very good food in the rooftop restaurant with pleasant service,although slow. But hat is all over India. Lovely staff, particularly Amid. He will go out of his way to make sure you see everything in Varanasis. He will also help with other travel plans and booking throughout India.He is more than just the perfect guid.Will be your friend.

              Yes, there is a great view of Ganga river from the hotel balcony, but getting to the hotel is a killer. After leaving the main road, one has to walk (no driving allowed or possible) for nearly half a mile of narrow winding dirty muddy lanes before reaching the hotel doorstep. Imagine the plight of the guests who have large suitcases with them. Definitely a killing proposition!

              Hotel location and views is why I chose this hotel and that didnt disappoint. The best part of my stay was how friendly and helpful the staff were with my needs. Rooms are very basic and the impression I got is that's the standard around the ghats so don't have high expectations. Watch out for the crazy monkeys that hang around the hotel.

              This hotel is somewhat hard to get find but a local will help out- ask. Vehicles can't get down the narrow lanes that are above the Ghats. The rooms are clean and tidy- the food is fine and the roof top resturants has a 180* view of the Ganga. Your only 10 minutes walk along the river ghats to get to where the nightly Puja take place. Catch a boat at sunrise to view the new light bathing the ghats full of Hindus who come to this Holy river .

              The best hotel in Varanasi”
              SITA Guest House is the best hotel we stayed in India during our 3-weeks holidays! The owner and his sons are really friendly and helpful. They organised us a boat trip (fair price), they allowed to take shower in the evening, after check out (it was about 50 C, and we were really in need after whole day sightseeing). They told us where to sip really good Masala Chai in the neighbourhood (and it was the best Masala ever). The owner cooked a dinner specially for us, though the restaurant was already closed. The room was quite clean, AC was working, hot shower, nice river view - there was everything you need for this price :)

              Enjoyed our stay very much. Great location. Wonderful hosts. Food in the rooftop was good (we prefer to stick with the Indian menu), the hospitality was great. Contact the hotel for pickup from the airport. A taxi will leave you at the main road, about a 10 minute walk through narrow alleyways to the hotel. If course you will immediately be picked up by a guide, but knowing your guide is from the hotel makes the experience a bit more comfortable. Notes to management: a squeegee it mop in the bathroom would be really useful. Also a shelf for toiletries would be great.

              Location and food
              Difficult to rate this place, it's less a hotel than a run-down guest house. But it's overlooking the Ganges, and it's relatively cheap. The bed and room was big enough, comfortable bed, but quite shabby room. Don't expect it to be like a standard hotel. But the TV and Wifi and shower and hot water worked, though not strong water pressure. If you can cope with the basic standard of the hotel I would recommend this place because of it's location. The rooftop restaurant overlooked the Ganges River and served surprisingly good Indian food, all vegetarian.

              Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the top floor. It's a good basic hotel close to evening Arati place. The only small inconvenience you have to walk by foot to reach it, there is no way to access directly by car. If you want to stay in the Old part of Varanasi that's a good place. Beware of drug dealers selling hashish on the ghat, don't talk to them or take anything as they may try to drug then mug the tourist

              Access to boatrides at ghat, enjoying sunrise, close to temples
              As Parents, we have enjoyed retired life for a few years now and it was our desire to visit the holy city of Benaras or Varanasi/Kashi and this visit was truly enjoyable. We had a good stay at Sita Guesthouse visited the River Ganga for a boat ride seeing all the sights, viewed the Ganga Aarti in the evening and viewed the early morning sunrise as well. All in all it was a great trip and I feel this hotel is good for its ambience, location close to ghats and also for visits to the Kashi Vishwanath temple and Kali temple. Thank you Agoda...

              I suggest this hotel to whoever already knows how Varanasi is. It's suitable if you want to stay reasonably, safely, and most of all facing Ganga. You don't need to take a long walk on the complicating narrow street to the river. The manager and his son are friendly and kind if you are friendly to them. Some staffs are sometimes rude but it may be acceptable as you know it before. It's not the hotel for whom want to stay comfortably like city hotels in Mumbai. Overall it's the best budget hostel that I have ever stayed along Gandis river. I will stay here again next time. You had better ask them to taxi arrangement if you don't know well

              At first sight, looks a wreck as is under renovation and some rooms missing windows! But the completed rooms are fine. Ours faced the Ganges. And we could see sunrise over the river. The manager went well out of his way to help us and make our stay memorable. The restaurant on the roof is only small, but the cooking is excellent. Good to tell the cook in advance and he will shop fresh! As there were few other guests, it was like having personal staff and service.
