This Guest House is a magical oasis set on the banks of the Ganges. It is in very close proximity to sunrise boat excursions, the Golden Temple, and the "burning ghat". There is s fabulous rooftop restaurant with delicious foods and drinks. There are lots of Vegan options. The rooms are super clean and very well appointed. The bathrooms have...

Varanasi was our last stop on a 32 day trip around northern/central India. Obviously the attraction of Varansi is the Ganges and the ghats and the Ganpati Guest house gets you right there - just one (albeit long!) staircase down to the river. We had a nice room and balcony looking out over the river. The rooftop restaurant is outstanding...

Beautiful views from balcony over the Ganges. Hotel was clean and very locally decorated, very hippyish! Lots of "gentle people with flowers in their hair" as the song goes! Rather weird to see European people floating about dressed as locals in the hotel even down to the cast mark, have I missed out on something? But whatever floats your boat...

Wonderful people, location, and atmosphere. Great view of the Ganges, most thoughtful and helpful staff. They seemed to anticipate our every need, arranged our sunrise boat ride and made sure we got to see the moving and spectacular Aarti. Varanasi is an amazing city and the people at the Gampati made it just about perfect.

If you are going to Varanasi, really go there. Stay in the heart of the city, right on the ghats. To get to Ganpati Guest House, you must walk in. You are met on the main street and then a couple of helpers from the Guest House take your bags and walk you through the back alleys to the hotel....

The Ganpati Guesthouse does what it says on the tin. It's important if possible to get a room with a balcony as the views are unsurpassed. The rooftop restaurant has amazing views and delicious food at very reasonable rates and sells beer which is unusual in Varanasi being a holy city. The staff are all friendly and smiley. The rooms...

I stayed here with a group of friends, we were strongly recommended this guest house by people who had previously visited and we were not disappointed. The Guest house is right on the Ganges, we were lucky to be there during a festival and it gave us a front seat row of everything going on. The bedrooms were large, comfortable...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are Ganpati Guest House - if you stay here, we are sure that you will have a good time in Varanasi. Of course the view of the beautiful river Ganges is amazing and exotic. Many people who come to Varanasi stay with us in the Ganpati Guest House. The staff are very kind and have a good spirit. We look forward to meeting you and hope beautiful time in Varanasi. The history of Ganpati Guest House: The Ganpati is located at the east end of the Mother Ganges in Varanasi, makes its presence known throughout the riverbanks not only by shining the world's oldest culture as well as oldest city. A city of light...but also by offering cutting-edge restaurants, renowned facilities, amazing view and comfortable accommodations. This 3-story Redstone pyramid was built in 1905 on the river Ganges, contains so many amenities on such an enormous scale that it's becomes practically amazing vacation. Spacious rooms surrounded by the plants, which boasts your staying, dining and entertainment. The Garden, at more than 1000 square feet, is one of Varanasi's oldest existing buildings and rarely available, offering a tranquil sitting, an array of nice music, a rack of books nearby. We want to deliver inside of the property a best atmosphere. We're trying to become a little more contemporary and appeal to all age crowds with holy feelings. We want to offer the best entertainment, dining, staying and relax without insulting the worth of your damage. That's not to say that "The city of Light" will be memorable entire the life. It is, after all, still a part of what makes the property unique, and explained that the hotel is prepared to keep the better executed elements of the riverbank-culture theme. Kind regards. ... more   less
