A business trip to Varanasi

Posted 7 Jul, 2017

I had been to Varanasi it was a business trip in the month of February 2017. I booked it online. I am basically from Kolkata. The location of the hotel was easy to reach from the main Varanasi. The appearance of the hotel was good. The front office staff was friendly and the service was up to the mark. The best way is by car. The room was big and it was well maintained. The room amenities were working fine. The overall service was good. The food was tasty and it was served on time.

Nothing Grand about Grand Continental !!

Posted 27 Apr, 2016

The name is first of all very misleading. Secondly the bed sheets were oil stained. Dust all around the room as if it was not mopped for days together. Washroom was is bad shape. Hot Water is an issue sometimes. Staff not very prompt in service. Food Service equally bad with not many options to eat. Overall a below average hotel.

Luxurious rooms with comfortable bed & yummy food

Posted 28 Oct, 2015

Varanasi is a religious place but the cleanliness is poor. Hotel was very clean in atmosphere both inside and outside. Rooms were luxurious, bed was comfortable and mattresses was in good condition. It was comfortable to sleep on bed, bathroom was good, TV set with dish provided to every room. Yummy food well cooked and well served by the team. Staff was courteous, housekeeping was nice. There was large varieties of food and beverage available. I genuinely recommend this hotel to every traveller.
