Would definitely not stay here. Hotel manager is incredibly rude, overcharges and is very pushy. Avoid at all costs!


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.
