Beautifully situated heritage hotel
We had a fantastic time at the Guleria Khoti hotel. We were so impressed by the location, right on the bank of the river Ganges and so the views from the balcony and terraces were spectacular, particularly at sunrise. The staff were extremely polite and helpful at all times, going out of their way to make you feel welcome, particularly at check in with a welcome drink and a scarf for each of us. We really liked the fact that it provided a free drop off and pick up with a boat every day, so you could explore the ghats easily and they also gave a complimentary boat trip to the aarti ceremony every evening. The food for dinner was delicious, with a range catering to most tastes. Breakfast was a little more limited and did cater more to local tastes. However, we were impressed the second morning when they provided eggs for us (we'd asked on the first morning but they hadn't had any) so it may be worth mentioning anything you'd particularly like when you check in. The room we had was clean and spacious, but it was quite close to the lift and seemed to be on the route to the restaurant so it became a little noisy early in the morning. This was only a problem the first morning as we were up with the dawn on the other days. It's worth noting that you may wish to have enough cash to cover the check out costs as their credit card machine is quite temperamental. We'd recommend this hotel if you're staying in Varanasi.

Beautiful hotel on the Ghat. You need to walk thru the narrow lanes of Varanasi to reach here . Ask for a boat pick up when you check in as it will be difficult to walk thru the lanes with your bags - Ram ghat is the closest ghat. Call the hotel and ask for the boat pick up at rajghaat The temple is 15 mts walk with quite a lot of steps to climb . So if you have elederly people with you , you may want consider the same The hotel staff is very friendly and open to accommodate any of your requirements . They provide boat for the Ganga arti and rides on the Ganges . The nearest hotel/eating joint is also 15 mts Walk . It’s a great property to stay when in Varanasi

Poor 2.0
Overrated and filthy
I booked this hotel since it's the only hotel with 4 and 1/2 stars near to Ganges River. First of all, hotel is in the worst area to get to. I found out after they provide boat service to the hotel but it's in the area nobody knows how to get to by tuk tuk. I had to drag my luggage through cow dung and spit infested streets for 20 min in 102 degree heat to get to. When I arrive, the staff told me i could arrange the boat but not apologetic at all. Also the hotel is in filthy condition. Sheets are dirty. It's in the Ganges river where it's polluted 100 times more than Indian Government level and they don't spray Mosquitoes or clean the window. Every corner is sketchy. Breakfast is the worst food, fruit juices are from can or water down. It needs to strip away the 4 and 1/2 stars to like 3 max. Hotel is also near the cremation area, so don't be surprise you run into dead bodies ready to be burn on your morning walk. The worst and I regretted so much booking this hotel.

Poor 2.0
Accessing the hotel by road is a trouble, through narrow and dirty lanes. Though the hotel is an old heritage building right on Ganga ghat, the rooms are small. The hotel has poor services, for every request the 1st answer will be ‘NO’, for example we requested for a taxi to go to the airport 30 min before check out they didnt event try or offered an alternate, blankly refused on our face and there were many incidents like this in our 3 night stay. The hotel is overtly priced as compared to services and the product. Also the staffs attitude looks baised, they are keen in serving the forigen guests only. Will not recommend to anyone.

Beautiful hotel on the ghats . Approachable only by walk or by boat call the hotel and ask for a boat on the day of the check in ... or you will end up lugging your bags thru the narrow lanes and steps !! Pick up at rajghat is the best option . If you want to enjoy the Ganges, this is the place to be . It’s about 15 mts from the Kashi viswanath temple ... quite some steps to climb before you reach the narrow lanes and the main road Elderly people may find it tough , but this is the hotel you want to be to enjoy the Ganges
