The train is on a neglected route. We booked our journey in 2nd AC but the coach was very old and AC was just okay. The journey which should not have taken more than 6 hours took longer than 9 hours. No catering service on the train. Toilets were very dirty.

As usual experience. Maximum trains in India give you the same experience as this one. Seats are comfortable (I travelled in 2nd AC). Toilets were clean till I got down. Maximum times this train gets you to your destination at time. But as I travelled in winter time it was late as maximum of the long distance trains do in winters in India.

The rooms are clean and service is good. I have stayed here two times and this place has not disappointed me once. It will always be the first choice for me to stay at Varanasi. Food was good but not great. For me cleanliness is the priority and this place gains the maximum points for that. I...more »

The journey was started at morning time. We arrived at charbagh bus stand & there we entered in a bus of Lucknow Depot. The speed of the bus is very good & we enjoyed the journey very much. It stopped two time at hotel for breakfast & lunch. The journey experience was very good for me.

The train was on time and the A/C 3 tier coaches are clean. The toilets are also well-maintained. But the route of this train takes few hours extra time. Instead of Amethi-Pratapgarh-Janghai, if it run via Nilalgarh-Sultanpur, then I suppose there would be at least one hour time saving to reach at Varanasi.
