Great relaxing hotel.....an old benarasi house with the family still running it! Full of charm, amazing books and pictures....lots of little terraces with sitting areas....great views and just where u want to be for all Varanasi has to offer. The home cooked food is to die for! Polite staff and clean a/c rooms. We'll be back!

This hotel is quite a joy. It's set in a classic mansion in a great location on the Assi Ghat which is quite a happening spot along the Ganges. In some ways it resembles a home. It's not fancy and the rooms are pretty basic, but the artwork is awesome and each room is a work of art. The common...

We paid 4000 RS a night for a beautifully designed room that was mediocre in every other sense. The hotel is designed impeccably with somewhat colonial imagery, tapestries and statues. Everything was very clean and tasteful. Room - designed beautifully and spacious, with lots of decorative furniture. There was no natural lighting, which was quite a shame. We couldn't get...

Please note I am reviewing Hotel Ganges View, not Holy Ganges View. This is a beautiful hotel, very tastefully decorated with fine Indian art works. The rooms are spacious and comfortable and clean, also tastefully decorated with art works, and the bathroom has plenty of hot water. The dining room was also beautiful and served a delicious buffet.
