    the best view and nicest waiters


    I made a mess of my arrival thanks to an incomplete knowledge of the 24 hour clock. Nevertheless they accommodated me despite queues of people.
    That was my first visit.
    I love sitting on their balcony, eating, drinking, writing, talking to travellers.
    I asked an elderly waiter how deep the Ganges was in the middle and was told, 'about ten and a half elephants, sir'. Says it all...

    Unique Quality: Views, views, views with an excellent, large cafe attached, very odd ( though delicious) muesli for breakfast.

    Directions: They pick you up from the station, telephone and then sit in the tourist reception a/c room. I've always asked them to help me when I return to the station.

    Hotel along the Ganges


    The Alka Hotel is a gem, located along one of the many back streets in the old town of Varanasi and set along the Ganges river.

    The hotel is set around an attractive courtyard, which doubles as the hotels restaurant.
    The restaurant is vegetarian and serves a diverse menu which is very reasonably priced.

    Our room was small and basic, set off of the courtyard with a small bathroom, fan and twin beds.

    Unique Quality:
    The location is superb here, you can enjoy the views along the Ganges from the safety of the courtyard, walk to the Ghats within minutes and to the bustling streets of the old town within seconds.

    On the holy river


    The stay in hotel has been very beautiful but the outside was a jungle.When you enter in old Varanasi ( in the pedestrian zone, near the Gange )and wear sandals or slippers is better that you move out it because on the floor of the narrow lanes you will find more cow or dog or monkey or uman gifts.REMEMBER jump the cow.

    Unique Quality: The hotel is very clean and from the large balcony you can see the life of holy river.
    For a double room with a/c about 850Rps ( 2003 )
    The hotel is located near the MEER Ghat

    Directions: Arrive to the Alka Hotel the first time (and the second too) is very difficult.The hotel is overtakeable only on foot.The best way to Alka hotel is calling the hotel that come to pick up you or pay a rickshaw-man like guide ( and why not ,bearer ).
