The Gateway Hotel Ganges

5.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I was there for 4 nights. Superb grounds, the cleanest rooms which were serviced daily - I was on the 2nd floor - the staff member was always polite and caring with a friendly smile, he looked after us so well. The restaurant staff were so amazing to us, always available to assist, the food was perfect. I would totally recommend this hotel. It was such a beautiful stay.

We stayed 2 nights and it was an absolute rest spot for us to recharge from 3 weeks travel of India. The service is excellent and the staff so welcoming and all smile. The food is great! We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner and all high standard and made a pleasant change from Indian cuisine as they have a large varied menu. The rooms are comfortable and have all you need. The hotel is away from the bustle and such a welcoming sight after a day trip out to see the River or Temples. Most enjoyable stay and end to our trip!

Exemplary service is the hallmark of the Taj brand and the Gateway demonstrates this to a fault. Special arrangements were made for us to enjoy breakfast with a packed lunch to go on days we need to set off early for the sunrise cruise and other tours. The breakfast spread is extensive and comprehensive. Their service staff is attentive and always ready to meet our needs. Kudos to the chef for his sambar and coconut chutney which I thoroughly enjoyed.

Probably the best hotel stay for me till date. Hotel staff was extremely acomodating, we were traveling with a baby and needed quite a bit of help like getting the baby bottles cleaned, getting khicdi or porridge during dinner etc and the kitchen staff was extremely accomodating. Even the duty manager was very helpful, we reached early at about 8:30 am and were with a baby. Even though the main room was not ready they accomodated us in another room. I am an inner circle member and am used to early check in’s and upgrades but I must say this was a very comfortable stay. To be honest taj tends to be more expensive then most other hotels from the club carlson group, sheraton group, park group, marriot etc but i think with the kind of service they strive for it is worth the value. This trip will ensure that i will look for a taj in my future holidays as a first preference.

Excellent hotel. Courteous staff...good location...stone throw from all important sites...the temples and ghats. Well maintained property. Breakfast not very satisfactory. Rounak travel desk is very helpful. Arranged cars and local trips for us...also recommended a nice saree shop. Would recommend this hotel to everyone who would like to stay in the heart of the city.

The hotel is ok , it has easy access to the main road and local shops , The gardens and swimming pool are lovely , The food was very good , unfortunately this hotel is under renovation , which goes on from 9am until 9pm ,drilling , banging ect , I did change rooms which was a little better , If you wanted too use your room during the day , to rest it was impossible due to the noise .

Its one the luxuries hotel in varanasi. its located in the city and closer to markets too. The taj surrounded with greenery and maintained well too. Many of the tourist from abaord usually pefer staying in this hotel .

Very niceWarm reception.Cordial and friendly enviorment.Quick service,Helpfull travel advise.enjoyed our stay.Location of hotel is very very nice.A home away from home.Room is cosy but slightly narrow.

Far from the hustle n bustle of this city of Varanasi is this wonderful property in around 30 to 40 acres of greenery. The lobby n rooms are spacious, the breakfast, a sumptuous spread an overall a great experience!!!

Though hotel is in middle of city, the experience was nice. Rooms are of decent size. Hotel is under upgradation. The buffet as usual excellent with a five star price ! Overall food was great.. chef Nishant was helpful in making special meal !!!
