Great Hotel!
Having stayed at Rivatas earlier as well this was a no brainer for our one day trip. The hotel is clean, comfortable and very economical for the comforts. Free wifi and good food. Pretty consistent in its service. The area is central and not too far from the ghats. The bathrooms are huge. Would definitely recommend to the weary traveller for some R&R. Will always stay at Rivatas when in Benaras.

It can be facilitated better by providing tooth paste, tooth brush, Extra toilet rolls, check if curtains work, lack of privacy between shower and bed room, not sure if the heater was not in a working order (cannot set temperatures). Food is good Restaurant people were friendly and their service good There is room for improvement in the Customer service side

Comfortable and clean hotel in varanasi
Hotel itself is well-cleaned and comfortable. While varanasi is very dirty town, the area where this hotel is located is rather calm. Still I have some unsatisfied point, but they are very minor. - does not exchange JPY to INR - adapter is really unreliable one
