8/10 Very good

Great Location!
The location is great, right on the Assi Ghat with great morning sunrises and evening prayer ceremonies. The stay was comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the food was good and affordable.

6/10 Good

It was in a great location but unfortunately most of the staff were not attentive to details nor did they action any request that you made. 2 gentlemen who were probably managers were good.

Basic, quiet, reasonably convenient but overpriced
Does the job of providing a clean bed and place to rest in an easily accessible location. However, the circuit breaker to the room power tripped twice in two days. Compared to the general cost of living, it is overpriced.

4/10 Fair

Good Location, Not too pleasant.
No window in the rooms. Nice rooftop but breakfast is served in the 'restaurant' on the ground floor which is a bit dark. Found small cockroaches in the bathroom. Location is very good because Assi ghat is one of the few ghats in Varanasi that can be reached with cars and auto rickshaws. Boat ride we booked through the hotel was okay, but it ended with our boat being tied to a motored boat because the boat driver didn't want to paddle the way back, which exposed us to constant smoke from the back of the motored boat. Recommend booking boatrides elsewhere with lower prices.

Good basic hotel at the Ganges river
It's a bit difficult to rate this hotel. The hotel is small, rather old, very basic, my room smelled moldy/musty (for the first 2-3 minutes when I entered the room), restaurant on top of building is very basic but the food was delicious (and it didn't ruin my sensitive stomach). My room window was facing a wall (1 meter away) which was not super but also not a big problem. Hotel is located 200 meters from Assi Ghat and the river. Location is very nice although quite a walk (1-2 miles) from the more interesting Ghat's. I did enjoy the walks along the river so it was not an issue. Area and surroundings seem safe and I didn't have any issues whatsoever. Wifi was ok but not great. At times I was able to stream a bit of Youtube .. I could not see the river from the hotel. Service level was in general ok. Some of the people working there were eager to assist - others couldn't be bothered. Compared to a 5-star hotel in New Delhi the hotel is rather bad but compared to the rest of Varanasi the hotel was actually quite good. I enjoyed my stay there and would recommend it to anybody. There was a lot of other foreigners staying in the hotel during my stay.
