    Great value, excellent breakfast buffet! Very nice staff (Thank you Santos). Great spa. Location is off the river front but still nice. You’ll have to cab or tuk tuk to the riverfront and old town but at 60 to 75 a night, it’s a deal. The bar and lounge on grounds is also a gem. Thank you for a nice stay 👍

    The hotel property was lovely. My room was clean and comfortable. The disconnect was with the service. Of all the hotels and guest houses I've stayed at in India ( dozens) I never experienced some of the baffling customer service moments. I went to the restaurant alone for dinner and was told I could not eat as they were too busy. Then I was told to go to my room and order room service. I went to the separate bar and was stopped at the door and told we are full. When I negotiated with someone to just let me order a drink to take to my room I found four empty bar stools. I have no idea why I was turned away twice. I was dressed nicely in Indian clothing, I was polite as I always am and it didn't matter. I went to the front desk and told a manager. He walked me to the restaurant and was told the same, too busy to let her sit down. He apologized and make a point that I would get a seat a dinner the following evening. But in a country where "Guest is God" and almost every single person I've encountered in the service industry goes above and beyond to help, that did not happen at Suyra .

    A unique property, kind of like a heritage building, location is decent, most of the staff is excellent, shout out to Gopal the hotel lifeguard and boatman, very kind and approachable person and gives excellent boat tours of the Ganges, he did everything he could to make our stay comfortable. Food and drinks where decent as well, prices where average. Nothing special I guess. However the room cleaning staff where quite rude, wouldn’t provide clean towels for the room unless I have them a tip, had to call down to the front desk three times, each time they brought me the wrong item and then asked for a tip for cleaning the room, pretty sure they where doing it on purpose just to try and get money from me. Also did a poor job cleaning the room, floor was merkey and bed sheet where quit old and used. Staff did not replace dirty towels, just pick them up off the floor and hang them back up. For this reason I give the hotel a mediocre rating, definitely room for improvement

    Great find in Varanasi

    Beautiful former palace, with great restaurant, great food, great food staff. Away from the crazy hustle of the city. The room was beautiful and this makes for an overall excellent pick for the area.
