Sita or Alka Guesthouse or maybe another one?


I'm looking for a hotel near ghat, I've read many reviews about many hotels close to Ganges and I think the best are Sita and Alka. Which one is better, do you have maybe another suggestions. Thanks for any answers.

I recommend the Hotel Temple on the Ganges Guesthouse, which is right on the river and at the far end of the line of ghats. It's a good, clean place, if a bit spartan. It is solidly in the upper end of the budget tourist range.

Also, check my article on Varanasi:

Hi- We stayed at Hotel Ganges View at Assi Ghat- which was a wonderful place, and away from all the crowds of the main ghat. In my Varanasi page I give information & pictures about the hotel, also other tips. Have a look, or feel free to email me any time. Regards

Travel Tips for Varanasi

Watch where u step

by peitsing

The cows are considered the most sacred animal for the Hindus, and this is most obvious in Varanasi, where the holy river Ganges is located..

Cows are everywhere, be in on the road, in the water of Ganges, outside your guesthouses/hotels/dorms etc, even peeping into the restaurants while you're having your meal..

Where there is a cow, there's bound to be some 'leftoevers'.. hehe which is pretty obvious the moment you step foot into the holy land..... the distinctive scent followed by residues on the sole of your shoes...


Cow dungs

by l_joo

Cows are everywhere in Varanasi, so as cow dungs. Cows dungs are to be collected by local peoples to paste each by each in order on house wall to let it dry and keep for later use as fuel, told by a local man.

This is a goat eating the flowers that peoples put on the dead people, the moment they dumped into the river, the goat can eat as breakfast perhaps. Then worldwide tourists can take their boat ride here to snap photos insanely, with video cam, digi cam, SLR, compact etc. I was here too, on the central platform looking at all these, 3000 years of tradition unchanged.

SINDOOR (vermillion) colours on every wall

by Rupanworld

When you are in Varanasi, you will come across many walls (of streets, houses, shops, temples, everywhere) where you will find red or orange coloured paint pasted on some photos or may be sculptures or even just on the walls. The reason!!! well these are not just colours, but sacred Sindoor (vermillion that Hindu married women wear on their forehead) which people put on the walls or idols of god as a sign of worship or holiness.

One photo, one photo !!

by l_joo

One of the local Varanasian local custom is this 'One photo, one photo !!'. You see, whenever you show your camera, local peoples would ask you One photo, one photo !! and its not good to say No to them when they are so happy waiting for just one photo by you. So here I uploaded one for sharing.
