Staff were unbelievably rude - claimed my booking didn't exist until I pointed it out to them in their book. Also, note there is a 10pm curfew. And don't go to the shop just down the road to the right - they sold me "bottled water" that was actually tap water in a resealed bottle. Other than that, the room was OK but very noisy.
Great, clean place to stay right near Assi Ghat. They will set up a transfer for you when you arrive/leave. It's more expensive than just doing it on your own, but on the other hand, the driver knows where to go, which can be a nice guarantee late at night (we arrived at Mughal Sarai, about 20k outside of town, at about 4am). For India, this place is very clean, and has a decent restaurant on the roof. Would recommend.
The good - location, staff and security. The bad - we had ants in the room, spider webs etc. It wasn't clean... and the beds were very hard. Not the best place we stayed in India.
We booked 2 nights and stayed 3. It was a nice and quiet retreat right in the middle of all the chaos that is Varanasi! Staff were lovely and helpful as well. Location is brilliant for Assi Ghat.
