Rahul Guest House is located about 15 mins from the ghats of Varanasi, which we thought would be a nice distance away from the chaos. The facilities are clean, and there is a great view of the Ganges. However, our room was UNBEARABLY hot. Granted, we went during the pre-monsoon heat, but only had a slow moving fan, and found that our room was much hotter than it was outdoors even. Additionally, we decided to stay another night, and the owner tried to increase our nightly rate.


Perfect location, beautiful view, room very clean, hot water, only negative point was no air con and wifi not great.


They should offered better service to the guests.

Great place to stay for cheap. Internet is hit or miss, as is the case at any budget hotel in India. We had to leave the second day because it was all booked out. Our fault for not booking ahead of time...

Lovely guest house in a great location on The Ganges. We did walk to and from the ghats, however other people may prefer a tuk tuk. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very clean and modern.
