    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.

    So, we made it to Varanasi, the holiest of all India's city’s, firmly rooted alongside the holy river Ganges, over 400 years old this ancient city is a full force melting pot of Indian culture, religion and vibrancy. With over 8m residents and over 7m pilgrims who flock here, this is one hectic place.

    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 …
