Good hotel, but not 5 stars
I enjoyed staying here, but I think the 5 stars that it gets on here is misleading. We arrived, and there was a security check at the gate--which happened every time we arrived, even in a hotel-hired car. Once we were in, the employees were all very nice, but they were unable to find one of our reservations. After a few hours, that got resolved, and my family and I were able to leave and explore during this time, but it was somewhat frustrating to have to email them a copy of our reservation (especially since they had the other room in their system). We booked our travel in Varanasi with the travel desk at the hotel, which was relatively expensive, but very convenient. The room was clean and had the amenities we were expecting. The free wifi only applies to two devices per room, but you can pay more for premium wifi that gives you faster speeds and three devices. The beds were comfortable enough, but nothing luxurious. The same goes for the towels, but there was hot water enough for us all to take showers in succession. The restaurant seemed to be a little on the expensive side for dinner. The breakfast was good, and we had it included in the room rate. I recommend getting the breakfast rate. The grounds were very nice, and it was a lot of fun to walk around after breakfast. I'd stay here again, but when I see 5 stars on a hotel, I think of a Ritz or a Four Seasons. This hotel wasn't to that level, but it provided everything one might need.

There are few hotels to stay in when in Varanasi. I have stayed at this hotel regularly for over 10 years and each time the standards drop. At one time, it was a Taj hotel--service was outstanding, the food was excellent. It is understandable why is was converted to a Gateway. Three stars at best. On the bright side, the grounds are lovely and it is a safe place to stay.

Nice hotel, but the worst service possible!
The hotel is nice but the overall service is the worst I've seen .The hotel staff is very unfriendly, unwelcoming and unhelpful . They all look as they are not there to serve or assist..
