          Good location hotel. Ok for a bed for a night with easy access to the ghats. Spoilt by grumpy old owner that sits at reception and demands praise of 'his place'. He needs to check out the cleanliness of the rooms. With mosquito nets black with dirt, and grime everywhere. This could be the perfect boutique hotel but needs the attention of an experienced hotel manager who is aware of the needs of international travellers. We booked a room with a balcony but the chicken wire that covers it to prevents the pigeons is so thick you cannot enjoy the view.

          Just a note - If you are staying ON the Ganges, you are NOT going to find luxury. After arriving in Varanasi, our taxi ride to the hotel had us on edge, as this was the craziest traffic we had been in since arriving in India. Our driver tried to drop us off along a random street - we had no idea where we were, so we thought we were in the wrong place and being scammed. Finally, 2 men arrived and picked up our suitcases, and we followed them down a bunch of back-alleys with motorcycles squeezing by, cows blocking the way, while trying to avoid stepping in the incredible amount of "cow patties"! Finally, we arrived at the hotel, and the owner greeted us, said we needed to rest and relax in our room, and then we could come down and check in and talk to him. We thought that was a bit odd, but we went with it. The owner was really nice, the staff was very friendly. We were on the top floor, so we had a view (mostly of hippies doing yoga on the rooftops of the other buildings, but we could also see the river). Their advice was to make sure not to have any food sitting out, because the monkeys will try to get in your room! Sleep under your mosquito net, and you'll be okay! There aren't televisions, the wi-fi is spotty, so bring something to entertain yourself while you are in your room.

          Varanasi was always the destination we were most excited about, perhaps as we had seen many images of it over the years. Reportedly the oldest city in the world, which hasn't changed much in last 500 years or so. Our trip to the airport from Delhi was trouble free but the pollution we had heard so much about very evident. Delhi airport is amazing …

Pradeep explained to us that there were people who would travel hundreds of miles to take a dip in the river, as well as local people who would come to the river every single morning to bathe. While it felt oddly voyeuristic to be floating by while people were soaping themselves, everyone was covered so it wasn’t quite as scandalous as it sounds. We had the chance to see a further stretch of the river than we had the previous evening and in ...

We had both seen the cow **** everywhere on the streets and now they were soaking wet..... we could feel the slimey poop oozing up through our toes. Nice. Unfortunately, after passing the first checkpoint (they wouldn't even allow my pen and lip balm) we got stopped by the police at the internal entrance. Sudeep tried to tell them we were Hindu's and didn't know the mantra because we didn't use it in Canada. It was a valiant effort on ...

I assume this can be the only reason why they would allow pills and razors into the Taj Mahal but would confiscate a pack of cards. On the opposite side Anna went through the same ordeal, as they told her she couldn't take in two of her books yet at the same time allowed her to keep another two. The process made absolutely no sense whatsoever but we had ...
