Recent guest reviews

We stopped over here for a day on our journey to Allahabad. Nice hotel, good food. They arranged for a car and guide to take us to the ghats and Vishwanath mandir - all of which was fine and not too overpriced.Did not see too much of the grounds on our brief visit, but would like to stay here again.

This hotel is situated heart of the city, they created a very beautiful ambiance by rose garden, swimming pool. Rooms are well maintained and suitable for anybody. Their hospitality and food items are remarkable.

Although we were not lucky to get one of the new and refurbished rooms, we had a very good experience. The hotel is an oasis in the Varanasi caos. The gardens and pool were beautiful. We were able to make nice walks in the property. But the best was the restaurant for breakfast and dinner. The waiters were really good and always trying to help us. They offer two kinds of buffet - a complete one and one with soup, salad and dessert. We chose the soup and salad and it was amazing. Everyday a better option of soup, nice salads and incredible indian desserts. We would definetily recommend to friends and stay there again.

We stayed at this hotel over Christmas. It was a very pleasant oasis from the hubbub of Varanasi. The hotel is undergoing some much needed refurbishment and we were given an updated garden view room. The room was very comfortable. Bedding was good quality cotton and furnishing of a good standard. In fact everything you would expect of a Taj hotel. We didn’t see the rooms which needed refurbishing so I can’t comment on those. Work was going on whilst we were there but it was kept to a minimum at night and didn’t disturb us. All hotel staff were extremely polite and helpful, particularly in the restaurant. Breakfast was good with lovely staff. The hotel has an outdoor pool but we didn’t get the chance to use it, I think it would have been too cold to be honest. I’d stay here again quite happily.

Recently renovated; still renovating during our stay but not too much of a distraction. Luxury Room. Nice breakfast. Would stay here again. Not too far from top tourist spots. I booked via

The staff the facility’s the ambience was perfect !! Thanks again for your good hospitality!! Cleaned lobby floors and rooms !! Good food at resto bar we enjoyed our stay so much and also good tours. They also provide car facility and travel desk the pool is beautiful too and they have very good location good to move around in safe area ! It was very close to the train station !

We were greeted with yellow bindis and beaded necklaces. The warm welcome from the staff enhanced the beautiful lobby and its old world charm. Our room was in the older part of the hotel and remodeling is still going on there. It was roomy, comfortable and quiet. The grounds are wonderful and include an outdoor pool, an area for yogi classes and another for outdoor dining. Their are shops in the lobby and lounge area. The "lounge shops" had wonderful offerings made by local artisans.

Stayed for 2 nights. I was given a renovated room. The service, front desk - reception, restaurant was simply awesome. The rooms were nice and spacious as well. Truly 5 star overall. Room service was prompt and waiters were very good. Overall a very pleasant stay.

Unfortunately the hotel was undergoing a refurbishment of the bedrooms so there was some noise although they did try to keep this to a minimum and stopped in the evening. We were able to view the refurbished rooms and they look excellent. A marked difference from the old ones which are now quite tired albeit very clean. If you are travelling from the middle of 2018 I think it will be complete and you should have a most pleasant stay. The rest of the hotel is very good and the staff are excellent.

We really enjoyed our all-too-brief stay at this very nice hotel. Our room was very good and overlooked the gardens and pool. It was a real oasis and hard to believe that the noise and bustle of Varanasi was not far away. Yes, the hotel is undergoing renovations but we heard no noise at all. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially those in the restaurant and breakfast. Food was all of a high standard. We would certainly return to this welcoming hotel.
