The true Varanasi experience Aug 14, 2010
Palace on Steps is a hotel situated in a 300 year old palace directly on the steps of the holy river Ganges.

The rooms are situated in different parts of the old palace which once belonged to one of India's Maharadjas. We were staying in a room in one of the towers, a round room with a high ceiling with ornaments all over, which made it a magical experience.

From our balcony we could watch the Ganges and everything that was going on in and besides it. It made the whole Varanasi experience even more rememorable.

The rooms are clean and have bathroom, AC, tv and fridge. There is a rooftop restaurant (again with Ganges-view) with good food and also the staff is very friendly and helpful.

I would recommend this hotel to everybody who is going to Varanasi, especially because you get a lot of value for only a little money.

Staying in this hotel completes the whole feeling of mystic, inspiration and magic that Varanasi gives you.
