Good hotel to stay with family

Posted 16 Sep, 2015

I stayed in hotel Lara with my mother last March it is quite far from the station but very near to Viswanath temple and Ganga. The front desk is very good and helpful. The whole team of room service and house keeping is very friendly. Food quality is very good but bit costly. Need some maintenance as we stayed there for 5 days. I am happy with the stay experience of the hotel ask the front desk regarding temple darshan and sightseeing. Please leave well before your train departing time from Varanasi as high traffic jam and poor announcement system and last minute change of platform is a regular affair of Varanasi station.

Location is good but average experience

Posted 18 Mar, 2016

The location is good as the Viswanath Temple Main gate is at 5 minutes walking distance. The Dasaswamedh Ghat is at a 10 minutes walking distance. The only problem is that on most days, the car or auto would not go till the hotel as the roads are closed. Mostly they would ask you to get off at Girja Ghar More. If you are carrying heavy luggage, take a rickshaw. The big Rickshaw would charge you Rs. 40 and the smaller one would charge around Rs. 20. If you are lucky they would go till Godowlia More. The hotel is only a few steps from there The staff is very good. However, Mr. Chowdhury, the manager needs serious training on customer service. BK Sharma, the General Manager is extremely helpful and courteous. He is usually there from afternoon. It is suggested that you take his advice before making plans as he could give you useful tips The hotel has a vegetarian restaurant. Food is okay and a bit overpriced On both days we took a car from the hotel. Since we did not have much time to look at other places for a car booking, we had to book it through the Hotel The room that we had booked (1500 + taxes) was very small in size. They did manage to give an extra cot. Please carry a multi pin charger as there was only one charging point in the room The Hotel said they have WiFi but it really did not work most of the time.
