My husband and I have spent 3 weeks all over in India. We slept in several different hotels. Here is one review.
We are the kind to look for something AFFORDABLE- SIMPLE- VERY CLEAN

Hotel Ganges River View
So here is the deal, if you want to stay somewhere clean DO NOT STAY AROUND THE GATHS.
There are two areas for hotels in Varanasi and the ONES around the ghats ESPECIALLY THE 24/7 CREMATORIUM GHAT OF HOTEL GANGES RIVER VIEW IS disgusting!
This hotel NAME is new, soo new that for Christmas of DEC 2010 we were the ONLY ONES IN THE HOTEL IT WAS SOOOOOOO CREEPY.
The manager of the HOTEL IS NEVER THERE AND HE LEAVES HIS POOR LOWER CLASS “ SLAVES” SLEEP ON THE FLOOR OF THE LOBBY AND TAKE CARE OF US- Hate the fucking Indian caste system.
We never felt more in HELL than in Varanasi.
We never experienced the CASTE SYSTEM more than in Varanasi.
After a few days, we started to spit BLACK SALIVA, COUGH, AND Blow Black mucus!
----Have fun there!
( One day is enough to take a cruise along the ghats and take some pretty shots + have a lunch at Hands on Café and then GET OUT OF THIS TOWN)
Again this is INDIA
You will get a flat screen TV but NO CLEAN SHITS
You will get the TIMES JOURNAL but NO HOT WATERS!
The name of this hotel is NEW but THE APPLIANCES ARE NOT, THE FURNITURES ARE NOT, THE FLOOR IS NOT!
ALL FURNITURE KEEP MUD AND BLOOD STAINS FROM THE OUTSIDES, THEY ARE ALL BROKEN, FALLING IN PIECES. IT IS A DISASTER.
THE MANAGER IS NOT “BAD” HIMSELF, IT IS JUST THAT HE IS LOOKING FOR MAKING MONEY ONLY. HE SET US UP WITH A CAR FOR BODH GAYA THAT WE PAID 100 DOLLARS FOR 2 HOURS OF DRIVE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The driver was some random low class dude they found in the morning and put in driving this car for the day, We felt horrible……………
This hotel is not along the ghats
There is no view of the ganges from this hotel.
There is no internet.
There is nothing as of NOW, only two rooms AVAILABLE!
The hotel owned by HIS UNCLE a couple doors down the streets DOES OFFER A VIEW FROM THE RESTAURANT BUT THAT’S ALL. IT DOES OFFER A 1980’S COMPUTER IN THE OFFICE BUT THAT’S ALL. NOT GANGES VIEW as well.
IF you order food, they cook it at the other hotel and then bring it over to you but they must walk up the block in the dusty, smelly, ancient and disgusting crematorium Ghat street.
The owner asked me if for a free dinner I would work with him for a couple of hours on the evenings at recording some positive comments about the hotel, in order to get a American accent girl speaking!!!!!
My answered was NO!!!!!
And, I am not American and there is nothing POSITIVE ABOUT IT!
The only places to get wifi in Varanasi are HANDS ON CAFÉ + IBA CAFÉ
Both GREAT PLACES TO HANG OUT AND EAT
Please stay away from this hotel_ my husband got sick from the food for 2 days, there was 24/7 crematorium we could never sleep it was wayyyyyyyyyyyy too loud, and the sheets were soo discusting, we had to use the PLAN B – TOWELS ALL OVER THE BED + AND NO USE OF BLANKET IN FREEZING HOTEL-
