Good hotel in the center of the city. It is a bit further from river Ganges. Based on time of the day, getting to temples in and around Ganga river requires some planning. Hotel has a good spa and friendly staff

Our stay was excellent. Mr. Navneet from Varuna restaurant showed exceptionally hospitality. We felt so much at home just because of the way he severed us food. We hope the hotel duly takes note of it and reward him for his services.
