Beautiful hotel right on the Ghats. River view room at first is a little disappointing as it is a narrow window, but over time it’s compelling to watch the coming and goings so I would defiantly recommend the upgrade to a river view room. Rood terrace beautiful with stunning views. I’m a bit of a carnivore so was apprehensive about...

All the staff at this hotel made our stay memorable. Special mention to Surray Xadan, the concierge that works on the property at night. Kitchen is simply fantastic thanks to Sanvay Creepta (the chef). Kelsey and Alak Veerma were also fabulous at serving us. They helped us to experience great food and always with a smile I will never forget....

I stayed in this lovely hotel for two nights with my family. The location is absolutely one of the best in Varanasi, especially if you want to walk around the old town which is extremely interesting. Staying here you can forget about cars and truly enjoy the Holy Spirit of Varanasi, from anywhere of the city you can always get...

This hotel was well equipped for a 3 star hotel. The staff were very friendly and helpful and we enjoyed the evening meal. This is an excellent location for discovering the Ghats and all that Varanasi has to offer.

This historic hotel is in the old part of the city adjacent to the Ganges. The staff is excellent; they go out of their way to help travelers. In the evening they had live traditional music in the courtyard. Varanasi is an intense place. This hotel is a quiet retreat in the midst of a hectic city. Food is extremely...

Spent Christmas 2016 here with my family and we weren't disappointed. The place was historical, unique and at the edge of the Ganga river's banks. Although difficult to find from the road, once discovered, the entire staff treated us as if we were returning loved ones. Everyone from the front desk tam of Uday, Gyan and Krishna to the restaurant's...

We arrived late at night, dropped off on the main road by our taxi and pointed in the right direction, saying you look phone, okay. Meaning, we figured you'll need Google Maps to find it. And we did. It's a bizarre place to have to get to past cow pats and cows and dogs and chunks of pavement missing, and...

The Great River is not exactly what you might expect however it is amazing and impressive. The ghats are stone steps which are covered when the river is in flood. Our highlight was the 5pm trip on the river to see the ceremony at 6pm. Take the offer of the boat at 5. The service was great and they allowed...

I travelled with a group of friends to Varanasi and we stayed for four nights at the Suryauday. The location is fantastic. You can sit on the balcony and watch the life of the Ganges river. There are people bathing and washing their clothes. The water buffalo come for a swim in the mornings right in front of the hotel....

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
