I stayed in a private balcony room (room 18) and although it was very close to the restaurant it still felt quite private. The rooms are beautifully colourful and everything you need is available: hot water, mineral water, knowledgeable reception staff, a/c, swingy chair on the balcony! We stayed for 3 nights and we're helped whenever we needed it. Would...

I loved Ganapati Guest House -laid back, comfortable, and clean. We stayed at Ganapati Home first, and the rooms are spacious and clean, very comfortable. The rooms at Ganapati Guest house facing the Ganga are very nice. I loved the decor of the whole Guest house! The staff is very helpful and polite. The food is not great and can...

What a relief to find this quiet haven in Varanasi. Compared to similar guest houses we have experienced, this one was a great value. Staff was very courteous and attentive.

If as a first-time visitor you feel daunted about your trip to Varanasi, you'll have zero to worry about if you stay here. You'll be able to relax in a safe, clean and comfortable place, right on the ghats, for a very good price. Pro tip: absolutely and positively get a guide... ask in particular for Prakash. He's associated with...

A charming guesthouse on the ganges, bright, colourful and fun in appearance. A brilliant location. Our room was small and the bed was very hard but it had all we needed and overall we were very comfortable. The rooftop dining was nice. The staff were lovely and helpful. Very popular with the gen Y/ millenial crowd. Would recommend and stay...

Ganpathi Guest House is a nice place, though a bit overpriced. The location is in the middle of the old part of Varanasi, and that means cows, filth, noise, tiny winding lanes, noise, and all the rest of things. But, really, his is the true Varanasi, so you get the real experience. The guest is good. The food is surprisingly...

Fantastic clean and spacious. We had a room facing the river with great views. The roof top restaurant was fantastic. Good food and great service.

Lots of stairs to negotiate from the river front but great...

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
