Hotel Alka, Varanasi
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.

Affordable and convenient!
The hotel was clean and staff very friendly! Ideally positioned near all the main tourist attractions it is great value for money! The room without A/C can be at times unbearably but the room does the job for the cost! The restaurant in the hotel is very convenient as it’s open 24 hours with a reasonably good selection of dishes all of which can be enjoy in the courtyard area where you can look out on to the Ganges or get lost watching the busy meer ghat from above in the hotel

Nothing like what advertised
I did not get the rooms I expected from my booking conformation. There was no furniture in room, just a bed. There was no safe at hotel or newspapers. I had to pay for upgrade on the two rooms we booked costing £80. The upgraded rooms were no better than basic. One had a wardrobe but one did not. The description given is very different from what is available.

Check-in was fast , with good restaurant and bar, very near to Agra river and city center. At night time the hotel locks main gate for security reasons. Exelent place.
