Good only for location.
Great location but everything else pretty much sucked.

A budget hotel with a great location, good service
This hotel is a very good choice for an affordable room on the riverfront. The view to watch the activities along the river and on the ghats is excellent. Service was friendly helpful with booking a car to go exploring and arranging airport pick-up and send-off. The room was sufficiently clean. The porters did a great job carrying bags because you have to walk about 10-15 minutes through crowds and alleys to get to the river and thus the hotel. The wifi wasn't so great from our room location but good by the front desk. Given the environment of Varanasi, even though these are simple rooms, this is a great choice in the price range.

Terrible to Stay
Location of the Hotel was really terrible. You have to go through small, narrow and dirty streets inside the local area and very hard to reach if you have luggage with you. Linen, towels were dirty and they don't provide you any toiletries except a small soap. There is no Room Service and they don't allow you to eat inside your room. Washroom was too small but no option. Overall it was a bad experience. Only thing that was good if you can say is the view from terrace of Ganga River that flows at the bottom of hotel down about 150 stairs. They says free Wifi but there is no connectivity for Wifi

Good location, bad service, not value for money
I was promised the room at 9 am but I waited with my very old parents till 12 noon and still did not get the room. Finally I went out and came back at 5 PM and stil I was asked to wait as room has to be cleaned and gave some other room as I mentioned I can not wait. I had to move into another room next morning. The hotel does everything(car, boating...) as it work for them well not for guest. Guests also smoke all over the place including restaurants. Food is also below average and expensive. Not value for money.
