Good choice if you want to be on the Ganges near the Ghats. It is clean and comfortable, and certainly the public areas and our room were much better than suggested in some of the older reports. They appear to be renovating the hotel, and doing it to a good standard. Our room (Punjab, 208) was a good size, nicely... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in November 2012. Great location right on Assi Ghat which gives you the option of walking the length of the other ghats to explore. Lovely first impressions from the staff by giving us a well needed free drink when we arrived and a flower garland. We were given a choice of two rooms, both... More

Stayed for 5 nights. Great location, just a 30 second walk to Assi Ghat. We stayed in the Jodhpur room, which was beautiful, although the only window looked at a cement wall only 2 feet away. The room was clean, with good hot water. The restaurant was also pricey, and we found better priced and better quality food only a... More

I frequent this hotel several times a year and have grown to love it. It is one of the best options along the river, and is clean and comfortable by most standards. It is the quietest hotel I've stayed in in Varanasi (if you stay away from the entrance/lobby area), and the staff is courteous and quickly attends to any... More

This place is about location. It is near one of the first Ghats. You can also rent a boat here where someone will row you all around the ghats. Surprisenly the boy didnt not ask a lot of money for all this work. It is also nice to see varanasi and the ghats via the water. You can walk from... More

I stayed here for five nights in January 2011. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. The rooms were fine - I changed rooms in the middle since the hotel wanted to give me a 'better' room. The restaurant was reliable for very good, nicely presented food, but it is served in Jain fashion. This means much less spices (for example no... More

The hotel is situated at the Assi Ghat of Ganga. You walk only 1 minute to reach the banks of the holy river. The hotel really looks like a small palace with nice furniture and renovated rooms.

This hotel is situated right on Assi Ghat which was amazing as it allowed me to see and experience so much during my time in Varanasi.

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
