          We stayed in a room with a balcony although any room here would be fine because the hotel balcony and common areas are very nice too. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

          You round the corner into what looks like a dead end in the grubby weirdness of Varanasi's teeming, filthy, and overwhelming Old City and discover a kind of oasis of calm serenity with lovely, clean rooms and a beautiful courtyard in the Ganpati Guest House. My room was large with good views of the Ganges. The restaurant is inexpensive and adequate, on the roof with excellent views too. There are fans instead of A/C which worked fine in February; I suspect less so in hotter months. Use bug repellant for the mosquitoes in Varanasi in general. This is a fine place and very reasonable, although you may need help from locals to actually find it. Cabs and motorized tuk-tuks can't get through the tiny streets of Old City Varanasi, so you will need a boy to guide you, and you may need to keep asking people to find your way back, but it's very worthwhile. You simply go downstairs and you are on the riverfront walking past the ghats.

          A great place to stay. Clean, friendly and nicely decorated. Great place to relax and escape from the crowded streets where sooooo much is going on. Special thanks to the chefs in the kitchen. The food was very tasty, we loved the thali! And Malu the waiter is a nice guy.
          Oh and not to forget I think the best location on the river and Ghat. Great views!

          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.
