"Overall Amazing Stay"

5.0/7
Posted 21 Jul

I visited Varanasi in the month of May 2017. That was a family holiday trip. I booked my stay through online. The location was good. The hotel was located at the center of the city. The market sightseeing was near to the hotel. The transportation was easily available. The appearance was good. The exterior and interior were attractive. The reception was very good. The reception staff was handling guests properly. They had welcomed us and made us comfortable. They had guided us properly for the sightseeing. The service was very good. They had provided orders on time. The staff was cooperative and helpful. The room was good. We booked AC room. The room was clean and comfortable. All the facilities were available. The food was good. We used room and restaurant both services for the food. The food was tasty and hygienic. We reached the hotel by other transport. There was no pick and drop facility. The railway station was for 30 minutes away from the hotel. I like to suggest this hotel to other visitors.

"Horrible experience"

3.3/7
Posted 19 Jul

It was a holiday trip with my family. It was in the month of May 2017. I had booked this hotel online through Goibibo. As for location it was restricted 100m early only as the entrance was very narrow only 1 person can go it was a horrible experience it took us 3 hours reach the hotel as it was in very crowded area and no parking facility had to pay 500rs and park somewhere else as a tourist it was very difficult. Only food was good to the rest room and all were not that standard. The look of the hotel was poor. The service. As a room they charge 2000 or 3000 but they dont provide complimentary food anything not even mineral water bottle when I paid so much. I had book 2 rooms 1 was super deluxe and other was deluxe there was not much difference it was same but the fare was different 1 was 1200 and other was 2000 but both the rooms were exactly same. As we had a foreigner with us. I had booked online 2 room but for 2 families but there were 2 kids with them for which they charged 650 extra for each person. They were making an issue for I.d as I had booked the room I gave my I.d and provided foreigner I.d then also they were seeing passport visa and all it was very difficult during check in. There was nothing complimentary and it is in a crowded area. The best thing was as it was close to Gangadhar and temple was walkable. The food was good and tasty I had ordered fried rice and cold coffee was good and had got Maharaja thali which was nice. They have restaurant facility which was good and service was good. The front office had a bathroom was next to it which did not have soap and it was very dirty. The new thing I experienced was the 12 to 12 hours check out as usual it was 24 hours other places. They have lift facility. My suggestion we require for complimentary breakfast and have a garden as we opt for relaxation they should get it as it was in a crowded area which was not satisfied. As in online the photo was of the entrance they did not mention it was in the crowded area and all if not I would have preferred other hotel.

"Average hotel"

5.9/7
Posted 16 May

In the month of March I visited this hotel. It was a holiday trip and I went with my family. The destination was excellent, there were many Ghats in this place and they were really famous. The location of the hotel was very good as it was well located near to the temple. The appearance of the hotel was good. Front office of the hotel was nice, it was normal there was nothing special in that. The hotel was booked directly. The rooms in the hotel were good, as the room was clean and neat. Service in the hotel service was punctual and was really good. The foods and drinks available in the hotel were terrible as there were fewer varieties in the food and they were not providing well.

"Good hotel with good location"

6.1/7
Posted 15 Mar

In December month I visited this place. It was a kind of holiday trip. The destination was excellent and for the purpose of mixture of devotion and culture I visited there. Old varanasi was excellent place to visit. The Location of the hotel was excellent. It was exactly at the centre of the city mainly tourist places. The ambiance and infrastructure was good and the cleanliness was what liked the most in that hotel. there was no entry in front of the office so traffic was heavy and the major problem was have to go 100 meter back to turn back from the hotel. The front office peoples behaved well and cooperative and the reception area was excellent and hospitality at the hotel was very good. The rooms were very good with all good amenities. The service was very good and staff's were very polite and they were prompt. The activity in that hotel was also very good and interesting. The food and drinks were good and quality of taste was nice, mainly I liked the most of naan roti. It was very good in stuffs. The breakfast was not complimentary and also Wifi was not provided. The overall stay at that hotel was very good experience to me. There they have travel desk facility available.

"Nice hotel with complimentary meal"

5.4/7
Posted 10 Mar

In February I stayed in this hotel for religious purpose with my wife. The destination was good specially the ghats and the Kashi Vishwanath temple. The hotel location was on the main road and easily accessible. It was very close to the temple. The hotel appearance was simple and not that fancy. Front office people were good and helpful. I booked the room online and the room provided was very clean and washroom was very hygienic and had 24 hours hot water supply. The hotel service was on time. The food was okay in taste and no complimentary meal was available at the hotel. The overall my experience was very nice and I was fully satisfied with the stay. I would recommend this hotel to other travellers.

The maintenance of the building and interior decorations were good. The front office staff's were good and helpful. The room was very good as the ambiance of the room was attractive. The services were excellent and the staff's were polite. The food was good and tasty but it was expensive. The other activities like swimming pool, spa were average. The WIFI was free of cost.

"The best hotel in Dashashwamedh ghat in Varanasi"

6.9/7
Posted 21 Jan, 2016

This hotel is situated approximately 600 Mtrs. Away from main Dashashwamedh Ghat in the famous Varanasi temple and the main temple of Shri Kasi Viswnathji temple is just 400 mtrs. Away from this Hotel. When we reached chowki ( the 4 wheelers are not allowed during morning 9 to night 9) we made a phone call to the General Manager and he immediately sent Mr. Vinod Sharma and our luggage picked up by Mr. Damodar, ( he is a very good person and an asset to this Hotel). The front look and reception hall is awesome and the best we admire. The desk top managers, Mr. Sharma ji and Mr. Choudhary are professionally a very competent persons. No problem we faced during check-in and checkout procedure. Further Mr. Naveen is well aware of the Varanasi ghats and he has given best guidance to us and which was very helpful. The rooms given to us room 108 and 109 are excellent, the bath room is very neat and totally hygienic. The toilet comfit is totally hygienic, 24 hours hot water supply with fast free WiFi is very nice. Mr. Damodar, house keeping is a very nice person, he always attends the complete customers and specially ask each and every one any thing do the customers need and with in a span of minutes he will arrange like, soap, oil tea breakfast. With regard to Lara restaurant, the complimentary breakfast and lunch & dinner all these 3 days we had very tasty. All the staff members are and specially these 4 members Mr Damodar, house keeping, Mr. Naveen, Mr Sharmaji and Mr. Choudhary ji are very well co-operate and helpful. We also would like to add that the security who stands in front of the hotel is a very polite, honesty and a very good person. We strongly recommend to stay in this hotel and to get quick darshan and also to visit all the Ghats as this Hotel is very nearer, I request the hotel supervisor to show this message to Shri Jaiswal ji, BJP MLA to know about this best efforts by these members.

"Great hotel with very polite staff"

7.0/7
Posted 18 Jan, 2016

The hotel was really good. We arrived at night, and as we were very ill prepared, we didn't even know how to get to the hotel from the train station. A single call to the hotel, and we were told how to get there. Public transport got us close to the hotel, but the road to the hotel itself is closed to vehicles at night. Another call to the hotel, and two members of the staff met us on the road, and guided us there. All the hotel staff were very polite. They even changed our pre-booked rooms once we told them that we preferred adjacent ones. The hotel itself was very clean. For the price, the rooms were also big. As long as we were there, they cleaned the rooms and bathrooms once a day. When we asked, they even brought water over to the rooms. The beds were good, and the television had enough channels to keep us happy. There's a restaurant right inside the hotel itself, and it's food is fairly cheap. The ambience is brilliant. It's air-conditioned, and overlooks the main street. Altogether, a good experience.
