We stopped here for 2 nights, after completing the Golden triangle tour... Thee hotel was a world away from the streets of Varanasi city... Tight security on entering, good reception area, lovely indoor and outdoor eating area, nice bar, and all the staff were ever so friendly and welcoming. We ate in GAD one evening, and the VERUNA the next...

nice place to stay, good food, but ask the chef before ordering meat items, if they are fresh or not. Breakfast area is awesome and staff is good. Rooms are clean and maintained well. Overall its a value for money.

This was a lovely hotel with attentive staff and very comfortable rooms. The restaurant food was excellent and the breakfasts filling with a wide choice. The location of the hotel was perfect. The pool was being renovated whilst we were staying which was a pity but we weren't in Varanasi for the hotel pool, though we did spend a couple...

I stayed at the Gateway Hotel as part of a package tour of India. This hotel is amazing! Everyone on the staff is very helpful and welcoming. The entire hotel is beautiful, and the rooms are large and comfortable. The included breakfast buffet offers many choices as does the dinner buffet. I think their pool is the prettiest pool I've...

I really had bad experience and hence i would never recommend this hotel to anyone in future. I found the staff quite inefficient, there was construction work in progress just next to my work, creating lot of nuisance and this did not stop even after multiple requests. Hotel staff did not inform that my credit card details is not working...

The room we stayed in - Executive room - was well furnished though a little small to my liking as also the faucets in bathroom were old and the shower's mixer gave trouble. Location of the hotel is Nadesar which is a very well connected location to all parts of Varanasi. Apart from this everything was good - special mention...

We had a very comfortable stay at the Gateway as we toured the Ganges River and the cremation sites along the river. The welcome buffet was good and Indian food is pretty hot and spicy. I learned that if you order a Lassie, a blend of yogurt, water, spices and fruit, it offsets your burning mouth. I prefer plain style,...
