Room with a holy view.
I highly recommend The Ganga Monestary. It is a nice easy walk along the Ganges to Assi Gaht, the southernmost of the Varanasi is very quiet. My room had a beautiful view of the Ganges. There is a nice rooftop patio as well.

Good location
Overall our stay was good. The room was nice, the view was interesting and the location was good for experiencing the Ganges River. Our frustration was with how aggressive the staff was about optional taxi excursions. We did some of them and paid their obviously higher priced for the ease of not having to figure it out. But when we declined to pay their double rate for a ride to Bodhgaya, we were shamed and browbeaten for not using them. I know it's India and everyone is always selling, but when you want a relaxing place to chill without deflecting hustling, this went too far.

Road leading to hotel is pits. Loose stones and bricks all over. Watch for musquitos. View of river is nice. Sunrise is spectacular. W Watch

Disfrute sin Aglomeraciones
Ubicado próximo al ghat Asi, en el extremo por lo que las actividades propias de los ghat, se realizan sin tanta aglomeración y sin la continua interrupción de varqueros y vendedores de todo.
