Liked: The staff was friendly. Good location, very central (although hard to find at first).

Disliked: Very difficult to find as it is in a very busy area and there were no signs. It was really hot inside the room (cooler outside) because no air was going through. Perhaps another fan would have been good.

Liked: Very short walk to main ghat, burning ghat, Blue Lassi shop, Brown Bread Bakery - ideal location for anyone short on time. We really enjoyed candy coloured interiors and the room/bathroom were clean when we arrived.

Disliked: The blankets in our room were quite lumpy however I am sure they would have been replaced if we had asked.

Liked: The guesthouse was excellent, and likely the best place to stay in Varansi. Great location near the main ghat, clean, spacious rooms, nice rooftop, decent Wifi signal all over. Monu (the owner) and his family are absolutely wonderful, and made us feel right at home during our stay. Monu is also a talented musician and offers musical lessons in-house. Amazing value for money.

Disliked: Nothing.

Hi Nicola
Thanks for your input.

I heard about the hard pillows and have changed it today immediately. There are new soft pillows now , so hope you have a better sleep next time.

Cheers
