    Very nice hotel, at Ganges river, very nice view of the daily things that indian people does. It's a full experience. The room is just fine, but, come on! you are in India! live it and enjoy it outside.

    Yes exactly s what blueloon2 said. Your room will be without attached bathroom. There will be common bathroom and you have to share with others. But not to worries its clean and nearby room not far away from room.
