I will come back to this hotel for varanasi visit
Amazing view off the balcony towards the river. Great alfresco area for relaxing tea/coffee. Clean room and facilities. Hope there was an instruction for using hot water system - the hot water was great, but did a cold shower for the first night because I didn't know how to use it. Great location in the centre of everything. I found the laundry charge was excessive. Varying degree of customer service at the reception desk, but acceptable.

Terrible to Stay
Location of the Hotel was really terrible. You have to go through small, narrow and dirty streets inside the local area and very hard to reach if you have luggage with you. Linen, towels were dirty and they don't provide you any toiletries except a small soap. There is no Room Service and they don't allow you to eat inside your room. Washroom was too small but no option. Overall it was a bad experience. Only thing that was good if you can say is the view from terrace of Ganga River that flows at the bottom of hotel down about 150 stairs. They says free Wifi but there is no connectivity for Wifi

Good location, bad service, not value for money
I was promised the room at 9 am but I waited with my very old parents till 12 noon and still did not get the room. Finally I went out and came back at 5 PM and stil I was asked to wait as room has to be cleaned and gave some other room as I mentioned I can not wait. I had to move into another room next morning. The hotel does everything(car, boating...) as it work for them well not for guest. Guests also smoke all over the place including restaurants. Food is also below average and expensive. Not value for money.
