We stayed at the Ramada Plaza JHV Varanasi for 2 nights on 7 & 8 Feb 2012 as part of a tour of Northern India. The room was of an average standard with only a thin blanket on the bed. The bathrobes were old and threadbare but on the positive side there was an iron and ironing board in the room. The shower was powerful but the water kept going hot then cold.
The food in the buffet on the first night was cold and it looked as if the burners under the food trays were not lit. We also had a power cut during our meal. The breakfast buffet was also poor with strange tasting baked beans, a long wait for eggs and omelettes and hard croissants and pastries. The only good things were the freshly made dosa and the lassi from the a la carte menu. On the second night we tried the Silk Route Chinese/Thai restaurant which was a revelation. The staff were very attentive (silver service) and the food was excellent. The head waiter made some suggestions from the menu which were very tasty and the pineapple fried rice was superb. The drinks were very reasonably priced at about £2.80 for a large bottle of Kingfisher.
The pool looked inviting but unfortunately it was too cold to swim. The sunbeds were dirty and should have been covered at night and the towels were well worn.
There are a few good souvenir shops in the hotel where you can haggle for a quality bargain.
