    Great stay!

    Great service and nice comfortable rooms. Our stay at this hotel was made very welcome by excellent responsiveness by Shashank for our travel arrangements around Varanasi and our trip to Prayagraj, even before we arrived at the hotel. Dharmendra in the restaurant made our morning breakfast most enjoyable by his attentiveness and great suggestions once he realized what we liked. All the staff in general were very attentive and helpful and made sure we were comfortable. The location was not very central to get to the temples or the river, but that didn’t cause huge problems for us as we were using the car service at the hotel.

  • 6.0.Good

    I didn’t like the food at all .. only breakfast is good .. but the rest is not good because of that everyday we have to get food from outside .. and one more thing right now we are in very thought situations where food and safety is very important, one day we are travelling to Allahabad 10 in the morning and Allahabad is place where there is no proper food place so we asked for some takeaway breakfast as complimentary and they denied absolutely where i didn’t see any human thing .. this is my second visit to taj Varanasi , they want me to buy the breakfast whatever i want .. which i felt useless and waste of money

    The staff and facilites were impeccable, everyone very nice and helpful, the only thing I wish was that the pool could have been heated so we could have swam in it, but it was just too cold.
