Myself and brother recently stayed for 2 nights at this budget hotel in Varanassi. The hotel is located at Assi Ghat with direct views over the Ganges and overlooking the ghats'. We took a double room on a room only basis which although basic was sufficient for buget conscious travellers'. The roof terrace was great and we ate all our...

Temple on the Ganges is a reasonable value for money accommodation. It provides clean rooms and fairly decent food. While the rooms are spacious, the bathrooms are a bit cramped. The rooms are well maintained with clean sheets/ towels and a TV unit. The restaurant service is a bit overpriced for the limited fare they offer and also very very...

It is clean and comfortable with super friendly staff and a rooftop restaraunt. Yoga can be arranged on the rooftop too. From here you can also walk all the way aling...

We went here to grab some food at both breakfast and diner. The server Krishna works very hard to make everyone comfortable and his efforts show. The food was very tasty and cooked fresh to order. To reach the restaurant you have to go up some flights of stairs, so if you have trouble walking up the stairs the restaurant...

Even though this is not a 'starred' hotel, the location is truly ideal, right on the Ganges and within a short walk to the Ghats. The service is simply outstanding. The rooms we had were very comfortable, with clean and modern bathrooms and lots of hot water. Take some time to meet with the Swamiji who founded the hotel, his...

We stayed two nights in this hotel.We found the cost too high for the services given. Our room was not cleaned in these two days, the service for the food took a very long time. The food had no tast, even for our western tast! The beds were good. The roof terras had view on the Ganges.

Respected guest, Thanks for your review on tripadvisor. We are bothered about your review and we have made the appropriate changes with chef and kitchen staff. The food now is much better and we personally ask each guest. The location of this hotel is very good which makes it worth when the tariff is observed. The hotels on the river...
