This hotel is just waste of money, due to lack of basic amenities and worst service, we vacated the hotel within 12hrs, it took nearly a hour to check in, they made us to wait such a long time, though we booked the rooms prior, I am extremely disappointed with that kind of gesture, nothing I experienced in this hotel.....

We had to spend one night in this hotel since we pre booked and paid advance. What the picture shows is not what you get. Sorroundings are dirty and no view of Ganga from your room. Linens are dirty, staff most unfriendly. Worst is the dining experience. With paint peeling off dining room is downstair and the kitchen is on...

I stayed here for 4 nights in October 2016. I was staying with 2 friends (3 of us total) and we had booked a "triple" room. Note to self - triple room in India is a twin room with a mattress squeezed in on the floor. This was not a problem but it would have been nice if it was...

The title is part of a quote from Gandhi, and is on the wall next to the reception area. It appears that the reception staff have not read it. Difficulties over the room, which a number of other guests also had, information given that was incorrect, and actions promised that were not done, were a few of our problems. That...

We chose this hotel as it had good reviews in the guidebook and seemed well located. Well, palace is clearly an overstatement! We were first showed a tiny room with a window facing a wall, after begging for a better one we were showed the one on the top floor which is literally a mold fest. All walls are blackened...

This place is a great location. I had become sick while I stayed here and the hotel staff was really concerned and happy to take care of me anyway they could. We had dinner on the rooftop, and I walked to the Ganga several times as it was right outside the doorstep. The decor was beautiful and each room had...

The Hotel is a bit expensive but location and service compensates it. Stayed there for teo nights. The staff is nice and cheering. Wifi worked well, breakfast was good and the top-floor small balcony was icing on the cake. You can have view of almost entire Ganges ghat's curve. Had a 1hr chat with the manager in evening, he made...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Palace on Ganges is a new, immaculately clean hotel with 22 rooms, each named for -- and said to be decorated in the style of -- a different region of India. Our rooms were good-sized and well appointed (cable TV sets, non-alcholic mini-bar, tables and chairs). The staff is friendly and attentive. Food is vegetarian and well prepared. The big advantage is Palce on Ganges's location. It is at Asi Ghat, And while it's "on the Ganges," a small road and a large where you can get the cab easily from just out of the hotel. Views of the Ganges from the balcony -- and rooms facing the river -- are far less good than those from, among others hotels. Disadvantages: not all rooms face the river. ... more   less
