I was travelling on my own, I am a woman. I found the place welcoming and clean. Food is great, staff kind and efficient. Very quite. I had the room on the groundfloor overlooking the lovely courtyard.

Highly recommend. Friendly staff, great location, clean rooms, great rooftop restaurant, areas to relax. Right on the water. We had a terrific time- Ganpati was a highlight of our entire India trip and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Stayed here the year previous year, and loved the vibe, but was treated like crap this time. Chose a room with tv, and had none, and the old manager just laughed at me when I proved that my booking showed that I should have one.

Quiet place, with all the interesting points near. Quite cheap and very clean. The restaurant above is really nice, cheap also with a nice view on the Ganga. Staff really friendly. It's a really nice place to stay for people who have a small budget.

Ganpati Guest House is a very quiet and peaceful place, the staff is excellent friendly, the restaurant has a perfect view to the river, the food (only vegetarian!) is good, the service very friendly. The cleanliness could be a little bit better, We will stay there again for sure.

Ganpati Guest House is a perfect place to sleep in Varanasi and the staffs are very friendly!!! Ganpati Guest House is the best location for access to the Ganga.

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
