I liked the cleanliness of the room and the fact it was a quiet place to relax after a day full of impressions. The owners are very helpful. And the place is value for money.
Spotlessly clean, and run by a charming family. Staying there gives a slice of Indian family life on a quite and peaceful, but far from boring residential area. It is also very safe and secure, with a nice lounge and balcony to relax on. It is within walking distance of the Ganges, which is reassuring, as it prevents the need to do the usual battle with taxi and rickshaw drivers, which is often part of a traveler daily life in India. Tip for travelers: Pay no more than 150 Rupees for a motor rickshaw to get from the train station to the Azure Paying Guesthouse. The distance is a bit longer than I remember being described on Hostel Bookers, so 150 is what rickshaw drivers generally charge foreigners.

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.

Varanasi we found to be hectic, noisy and dirty and full of people trying to get money from you. So to be able to walk or tuktuk down to Rahul Guesthouse just beyond Assi Ghat takes you to a quiet place where you can just relax on their rooftop restaurant. Super efficient and friendly owner who has your best interests at heart. He will organise most things for you and he keeps the process down. He is expanding the business so it will get better.
We loved everything about this property! We had a suite with an amazing view of the Ganges directly from our room! The room was big and clean with a huge bathroom. The hotel staff was the best! So helpful wtih giving sightseeing tips and setting up the trips directly for us. They were also great in giving advice on places to eat. Just overall so nice and helfpul. The location was great also! Located right on the Ganges and you can walk all the Ghats directley from the hotel. We really enjoyed our walk along the Ganges, one of our favorite parts of Varanasi! We would definitley stay here again and highly reccomend this hotel!

Location is wonderful looking over the Ganges. Staff were very friendly and the location is right in the middle of the action, yet very quiet for a good night sleep. Restaurant food on the roof is very good and inexpensive. We had a pleasant stay and would go back again next time. Recommended.
I liked the great location, the friendliness of the staff, the restaurant on the terrace, the family atmosphere of the accommodation. The bedroom we had the privilege to get had a balcony and great view of the Ganges : an incredible gift.

We stayed here an extra night. The location is good near the river. The family are very welcoming.
In the city of Varanasi as a whole, we didn't find the people to be particlularly welcoming or hospitable, but our experience with Prabhu and his family was the complete opposite. From the chai Prabhu gave us when we arrived some issues with a tour guide, we were extremely satisfied with his genuine care for us as his guests. He recommended good restaurants, helped us plan our sight-seeing, and gave us a room to rest in both when we arrived (our room was being cleaned) and before we left Varanasi after we had checked out. The guesthouse is clean, especially for a place in Varanasi, and we enjoyed spending time in the lounge area with Prabhu's kids,and puppies. There's a great view of the city from the roof. Great location (though the city's winding alleys are confusing) and we would definitely stay here again and wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone we know visiting Varanasi. There is free wifi and it's quite fast.

Perfect place for the budget traveller! Couldn't ask for a nicer family to stay with, they are super friendly, helpful and make you feel at home. Value for money could not be better ~ clean simple rooms with or without bathroom, secure and safe plus free wifi! The location is fine, it's slightly back from the old city and the river but it's only a 5min walk that we enjoyed each day through a vibrant street with great street food along the way!
We stayed at the cheapest room on the rooftop and liked it a lot! The room has big windows and the roof top felt like our own balcony on top of Varanasi. The hotel has a great atmosphere. The owner is so friendly. He helped us a lot during our first days in India and arranged train tickets for us.

Nice hotel at the bank of Ganga River. Nice view. Near all main attachments. Helpful staff.
great location, with a really honest, friendly and helpful bunch of guys that run the place. The hotel has excellent security, and the rooftop is really superb, with great views with good food at the restuarant. My room was clean, and the mattress new with clean bedding. i would totally reccomend this hotel. room 302 is excellent.

good location,clean place.manager very helpful,even offered me cash in advance when I only had foreign currency on me.later helped me to print my train ticket too.thank you.
The hotel located in an excellent place which just opposite the burning ghat. Hotel staff was helpful by telling a lot of useful information like don't give donation or money to the burning ghat guys etc. We went during the Komela so actually it hard to get a room there luckily we've booked in advance.

la posizione è ottima e le camere pulite, la zanzariera intorno al letto è indispensabile
It's a very clean and quiet place within loud and crazy Varanasi, ideally located some steps distant from the main gaths and tourist places, perfect view on ganges, nice rooms, personal service for individual needs and plans, good food, family owned.

Loved this place, the staff are brilliant and help you out as much as possible to avoid scams. As India hostels go, its great and you should be able to meet up with people here
Decent location though lacks a Gangs view. Overall the place was pretty average with none of the basics (by Indian standards) missing.
