    Filthy Hotel!

    The room and hotel were filthy. I didn't even want to take my clothes off whilst in bed.

    Perfect location.

    my room was on the 4th floor, but no problem because they have lift. A room with an awesome view but wifi was very weak almost didn't work during my stay. Location is perfect.

    don't stay here!

    we chose this hotel because of its location on the ghats local area was fascinating hotel staff friendly but hotel condition poor, in no way 2.5 star our ''deluxe'' was awful --- old, in need of repair, rusty metal bathroom door, stained wash basin & toilet No soap nor toilet paper cannot recommend this hotel to anyone, & I don't think Hotels.com should advertise it

    wonderful view of the river ganges.

    The hotel looks a little worn from the outside. Inside there is a bit of concrete, however the room was in really good condition. there is a wonderful panorama view directly to the river Ganges … you are literally on the banks of the Ganges river. Be aware, there is no road to the hotel, so there is a walk of about 500 meters from the closet place a car or auto can drop you.

  • 2.0.Poor

    Hotel is hard to find and not clean

    The hotel’s location is not accessible by taxi/car. The taxi has to stop at 1-2 km away and you will have to walk for 10-20 minutes in some narrow roads before you find the hotel. If you really want to stay in this hotel, I would suggest you contact the hotel to arrange for transport. The towels and bed sheets are not clean.

    スタッフの方々は最初とっつきづらかったのですが、実はそんなことはなく、ロビーの方々もいつもクール対応が安心感を与えてくれます。また、屋上のレストランスタッフは最高です。また、そのバルコニーは居心地抜群。終日バルコニーにガンガーを眺めていても飽きません。また、夕方以降、バルコニーから見える左右の河岸の光景は癒されます。

    ベッドや部屋には虫が多くいます。気になる方はやめた方がいいと思います。自分で取れる方はぜひ泊ってください。スタッフの方が凄い親切です。
