My room has the Windows to the Ganges and so can I see everyday the sunset! Delicius food, every evening traditional life music and very good staff! In the evening the boat ride is free of charge, also the daily morning-yoga on the rooftop! All together - Best of the Best!

We loved our stay here and everything about the hotel. Very cute and great location. Wonderful immersion into the culture. The hotel is only very small with an open courtyard in the middle. We actually had a monkey in the tree one evening. Boats leave regularly on the Ganges from your door step.

We had a lovely short stay in this pretty hotel right on the banks of the Ganges. Our room was quite simple but beautifully presented and the bathroom was large with a good range of toiletries and a huge shower. The food (vegetarian) was very good (we had the 'Minti potatoes' as a light lunch twice, it was so good).... More

The hotel is small, more of a boutique hotel, and there are bedrooms that face the Ganges. I was able to see the morning ceremonies from my window, which was useful as I traveled too soon after Monsoon season and the water levels were somewhat high. The hotel offers a good size rooftop, daily morning yoga and a great little... More

We stayed at the Suryauday Haveli with my 86 year old mother in law (MIL) in late October. We had awesome stay. Getting to the Haveli through the narrow alley ways appeared daunting but we were met by staff with a wheelchair for my MIL who guided us there, a five minute walk. The Haveli is on the banks of...

We stayed overnight in the Haveli recommended by Enchanting Travels and it was part of an unforgettable visit. The location is incredible, on one of the ghats, tucked away through the labyrinth of lanes and adjacent to the mission of the Sisters of Charity of St Theresa, and only a few steps from the Ganges. The welcome was very calming,... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Suryauday Haveli on Shivala Ghats is a reflection of the spirit of the holy city of Benaras. The Haveli traces its history back to the early 20th century. It was built by the Royal Family of Nepal as a retreat for the aged. Its now been painstakingly put together again to provide the best ghat experience in Benaras. Your stay begins with a 15 minute boat ride upstream along the famous ghats of Benaras to reach the Haveli. The Haveli is also connected by small alleys and streets leading to the Famous Kashi Vishwanath Temple (15 minutes walk). ... more   less
