I have just had my second stay at The Suraj Guest House. It mirrored the first. The staff are helpful without being intrusive, the place is clean and everything worked. And it was quiet. The roof top has a good view of the river. This is a bonus if you enjoy seeing the sunrise across the Ganges without having your early morning peace disturbed by all the riverside touts.


The stuff was nice and helpfull, but the rooms are not worth the money and it was not very clean. I mean I also got to know worse places and it was OK for one night, but for the money you pay you usually can expect a lot more.


suraj gh is a very pretty place in the burning heart of varanasi.. to reach it you have to find the nepali temple, cross it and then you'll arrive in the house of the owner.. colourfull and pretty room and very very (very!!!) kind staff! they helped us so much.. don't forget: to go to the rooftop, say hello to lucky (the dog of the family), to do yoga lessons and to order breakfast/dinner... we can say that this family is an isle of peace in the amazing confusion of varanasi!

Very good location, very nice staff - all good!


Great, friendly guest house. The place to be in Varanasi! Prabhat and his family are kind and helpful. Clean and beautiful rooms, nice living room with books, free wifi acces, and puppys! incredible view over the Ganges, the burning ghat and the Nepali temple from the rooftop. Suraj Guest house is perfectly located in the center of old Varanasi.

Besides the colorful guesthouse that makes you feel at home and in a warm environment, the best part of it is the staff. Prabhu, the owner, is really kind and helpful, chilled and efficient, and it will feel like you've known each other for ages cause he is such a friendly person. The guesthouse is in a convenient position, close to the burning ghats, very close to the main restaurants and places to visit. Great experience!
