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.

Travelling with my son and Granddaughter and had an amazing stay at Guleria Kothi for two nights. We were able to arrange a walking tour, evening tour to the fire celebration and a early morning sunrise tour.

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.

Dreadful place but had a great view
The hotel location is most inconvenient. We had to drag our luggage through narrow alleyways in the dark for over .5 km. There were numerous insects crawling about and in the beds. The room was only cleaned after we requested it twice on the third day. We had to go find our own toilet paper. Too noisy to sleep even in wee hours of the morning.
