    Good location, bad service, not value for money

    I was promised the room at 9 am but I waited with my very old parents till 12 noon and still did not get the room. Finally I went out and came back at 5 PM and stil I was asked to wait as room has to be cleaned and gave some other room as I mentioned I can not wait. I had to move into another room next morning. The hotel does everything(car, boating...) as it work for them well not for guest. Guests also smoke all over the place including restaurants. Food is also below average and expensive. Not value for money.

    Pros - close to ghat, decent rooms, good service. Cons - cars cannot come to the hotel as they do not allow in this area so you have to walk quite a distance to get in or out which is not easy if you have lot of luggage or mobiiity issues.

    Terrible to Stay

    Location of the Hotel was really terrible. You have to go through small, narrow and dirty streets inside the local area and very hard to reach if you have luggage with you. Linen, towels were dirty and they don't provide you any toiletries except a small soap. There is no Room Service and they don't allow you to eat inside your room. Washroom was too small but no option. Overall it was a bad experience. Only thing that was good if you can say is the view from terrace of Ganga River that flows at the bottom of hotel down about 150 stairs. They says free Wifi but there is no connectivity for Wifi

  • 10.0.Exceptional

    The location of this hotel is as charming as it can get. Serene Ganges and the sunrise in the background was scenic to say the least. Meanwhile the rooms are good with proper amenities and the cleanliness was overall very good. Reaching this hotel is also relatively easy as opposed to what the local taxi and auto drivers say

    Incredible location the premium rooms have arguably the best view of any hotel in the entire city. No hot water though and tv not working, which is not really acceptable given premium price. Staff good. Restaurant better than nearby competition
