Offering a terrace and views of the river, Scindhia Guest House is set in Varanasi. Kashi Vishwanath Temple is 70 metres. Guests can enjoy the on-site restaurant. Everything is good about this guest house. I had upgraded to a room with a balcony view over the Ghat and the Ganges and was glad I did. It was just magical, both at sunrise and sunset. The room and bathroom were clean and comfortable with notice taken of European cultural differences. There was hot water which was very welcome as travelling in the town and area is very dusty as in most of India. The guest house is perfectly situated in the old town, just next to the Manikarika Ghat. What sets this guest house apart is the fantastic care and service offered by the manager Kush. I was ill for a day after forcing the chilly and he helped me with dietary advice and getting some medicine. He will do all in his power to make your stay a happy one. He can organise trips out to Sarnath etc. Also he arranges morning and evening cruises on the Ganges to see the Ghats in the best light. These trips are on a small motor boat so you get to see the whole shoreline down to Assi in good time. For a very reasonable price I was also rowed out to the middle of the river to float flowered candles in memory of my family. If the service was not all, the Roof Restaurant has very good food and the breakfasts are also excellent. I cannot speak too highly of this place and will try to come again.
Located just 10 metres from the holy Ganga Ghat and 3.5 km from the Varanasi Junction Railway Station, Ganpati Guest House provides 24-hour front desk for the convenience of the guests. Staff were very helpful. And the view from terrace restaurant can't be more perfect. You are overlooking the most popular ghat on the Ganga. You can even see the fire puja. Charming place to chill out.
Located just a stone throw away from the River Ganga, Hotel Alka operates a 24-hour front desk to welcome guests at all hours. Rajesh the manager is extraordinary. Was there patently for all my needs. Beds great. Location couldn't be better. Restaurant food very good.l
Alakhnanda Guest House features air-conditioned rooms with satellite flat-screen TV in the Ghats of Varanasi district of Varanasi. Well, I liked everything about this place. Friendly staff, decent room and amenities, a great view of the Ganges and situated on an excellent location to walk around the ghats. Well don't expect too much luxury, but for me, this place exceeded my expectations. Special mention and thanks to Akshay and the boys.
