Not a posh hotel but ticked all the boxes. Was clean and pleasant. Staff were friendly and food was okay. Great location for visiting the ghats and watching cremations , and witnessing ceremonies. Would recommend.

We stayed at Ganpati Guest House for 4 nights. Room was great, very clean and spacious and was overlooking the Ganges with a private balcony. Perfect for watching the sunrise in the morning and the religious morning rituals on the Gats. Hotel staff were very friendly and helpful. We found our guide Aman Anand through the hotel who was amazing!... More

Great balcony over the Ganga, staff was fine, very well decorated rooms. Reliable hot water, clean rooms, modern bathrooms. Room internet was not working during our stay, but if this has been fixed, great place. Would definitely stay here again.

This guest house was a lovely surprise on the banks of the River Ganges. With a quirky, trendy theme, it is right on the great river, but high up from the noise and chaos. The rooms are roomy, clean and comfortable. They have a very good restaurant, that serves both vege and non-vege meals, as well as alcohol. Our room... More

We stayed for two nights in November. We stayed in two rooms that shared a balcony overlooking the Ganges. Our rooms were large, colourful and clean. The balcony was spacious and provided a great spot for a coffee in the morning, a cold beer in the afternoon and an area from which to watch activities on the river all day... More

Located right on the bank of Ganga, this hotel caters almost exclusively to foreign travellers. Steps lead down to Ganga, close to the famous Dashashwamedh Ghat, from inside the hotel property. Kashi Vishwanath Temple is a mere 5-minute walk away. The rooms and the lobby have a very cluttered and kitschy look, tailored for foreigners. Some rooms have a balcony... More

This hotel is very much near to the main temple and it has a route to River Ganga internally so you can bath & come to your room directly. Very artistic & colorful around. Liked it very much. Food is decent.

Lovely rooftop restaurant, relaxed atmosphere with shady umbrellas. Staff were attentive. Good food (especially veg thali) and beer. Nice to be looking over the ghats. Would come back to restaurant again, and also stay in hotel which looked 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
