The Ganpati Guest House is a small place with great character, situated on Meer Ghat on the banks of the River Ganges, offering superb panoramic views, from east where the sunrises to the west.
It is in an ideal position for seeing the main sites of Varanasi, for example a stairway leads to the Ghats from where you can take a boat trip along the river. Only a short walk away it is possible to see the Burning Ghat (Manikarnika Ghat) and the Main Ghat (Dasaswmedh Ghat). The guest house provides a superb service for traveling on from Varanasi by train, bus and flights, and onward journeys to Nepal all for a nominal fee.
The inner courtyard is a great area for relaxing and meeting new people while enjoying a cold drink or meal from the vegetarian restaurant.
The accommodation is wide ranging to suit all budgets and the friendly atmosphere is second to none. Please book early to avoid disappointment.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?
This is a wonderful location, the service was great, they are able to help w/ train tickets, rickshaws, directions, times, anything you want. It is RIGHT on the Ganges at Meer Ghat, so it takes no time at all to get to the main ghat. Each room has its own character so see if you can see a few to make it fit what you are looking for. Was a pleasure and will be back in the future
