    It was a great guest house to stay at to really experience Varanasi, the ghats and the Ganges River. Our room was nicely appointed with its own bathroom. The roof top restaurant had a fantastic view of the Ganges and it was very easy to organize our day tour and bus ticket on to Pokhara.

    Loved this pace, on Meer Ghat, in between two main Ghats (ceremony and burning ghat) in the heart of the Old City and its labrynth of laneways. Rooms are beautifully decorated with lovely details in the room (inscence in room, toy elephants hanging from curtain rails, sequinned bedspread and pillows) - it really is a nice change from the basic rooms in our budget price range. Awesome staff, lovely rooftop restaurant. Not a bad thing to say about this place!

    Very good vibe and atmosphere.
    Good service, hot water, fine food.
    A little expensive compared to India (500 rps for a room without a bathroom) the toilets were not at the same floor as our room which was a little annoying, and there were only two share able bathrooms...
    Also outside our room there was a sitting area so from around 8 am people sat there and we couldn't sleep. If you r willing to pay more there r really good rooms there.

    From our experience and comments from many other people, Ganpati is the best place to stay in Varanasi. We had adjoined rooms with a large balcony right on the river front. The rooftop food was fine and a really nice place to relax after the intest walkabout of the city. Thanks Chiku and everyone at Ganpati!! See you next time.

    Getting to Varanasi was quite the memorable experience... We took a night train from Agra that got us most of the way there but had to catch another train in the morning and sit in general class. The ride was 3.5 hours and it was PACKED. I'm not sure if there is a limit to the amount of people they allow in there but I saw many …

    Auf der Fahrt vom Flughafen zum Guesthouse nahmen wir das Angebot unseres "Abholers" an, uns am nächsten Tag gegen einen kleinen Obulus die Stadt zu zeigen. So liefen wir dann fröhlich frisch unter Führung eines cleveren 17-jährigen Bussines-Students durch die Altstadt. Die Straßen dort erinnern ein bisschen daran, wie es …

    Our very first train ride in India! Compartments overflowing with passengers, people hanging off the sides of the train, or “surfing” the rooftop as they enjoy the breeze. Nope, there was none of that stuff that we saw on Youtube. Instead, our compartment was well organized - if not cramped - with wool blankets, washed sheets that still …

    Nach der unendlich lang scheinenden Reise war ich mega froh als ich am Bahnhof von Varanasi von einem Hotel-Kurier empfangen wurde - klappte also auch dieses Mal mit der Abholung... dachte ich mir zumindest anfangs. Da sie aber noch 3 weitere Leute mitnehmen mussten, hatten sie irgendwie falsch kalkuliert, sprich es hatte fr mich irgendwie keinen …
