              The distance and the approach to the guest house are suitable for the able-bodied and the not-so-old. So if you plan to book this place, ensure you do not have people who've difficulty in walking and climbing/alighting the steep stairs. The Housekeeping needs to be spruced up. They've excellent, helpful and courteous staff. Pandey ji the Manager, Vishu the guide, Manoj, Prashant and Yadav ji in the restaurant are ever so forthcoming. If the quality of the food improves a little more (since Varanasi offers a great cuisine), the place is an excellent one. The focus of the guest house however seems the foreign tourist. i'am however told that the Management soon plans to introduce a viable transport system from the motorable road to the guest house. All in all, a good place to stay.

              Best property in Varanasi on a budget.”
              A great property if you want to be close to the Ganga. Right on the steps. Very close to The Ganga Arti as well. Also the Ghat is a very good for bathing as the steps are clean and go well inside the Ganga. If you stay in Room 407 the views are the best only other property with a similar view is Brijrama Palace with a price 46k per night plus taxes. So this room at 7k is a steal.

              The hotel is very good. Owner is very helpful. Room was nice with Ganga View. I would definitely recommend the hotel for young people. The main problem is the entrance. You have to use a remarkable numbers of stiff stairs for going to the hotel, which is very difficult for aged persons. Though the owner of the hotel gave us the way to enter from the first floor so we were able to avoid at least 50% of the stairs.

              This was my first time in Varanasi, so it took a little effort to find this place - literally, right on the river - but I'm happy about the location. The staff were really nice, the food upstairs was good and they were helpful in arranging a side trip to Sarnath.

              Location overlooking Ganges
              One must take into account the City of Varanasis as a whole when making a review. It is a very old city with mainly crumbling buildings, narrow laneways and lots of poverty. Our hotel was in a perfect location. Rooms are small but have all one really needs, without beig lavish. Pay a little extra and take a room with balcony overlooking the river and not stop movement. Very good food in the rooftop restaurant with pleasant service,although slow. But hat is all over India. Lovely staff, particularly Amid. He will go out of his way to make sure you see everything in Varanasis. He will also help with other travel plans and booking throughout India.He is more than just the perfect guid.Will be your friend.

              Yes, there is a great view of Ganga river from the hotel balcony, but getting to the hotel is a killer. After leaving the main road, one has to walk (no driving allowed or possible) for nearly half a mile of narrow winding dirty muddy lanes before reaching the hotel doorstep. Imagine the plight of the guests who have large suitcases with them. Definitely a killing proposition!

              This hotel is somewhat hard to get find but a local will help out- ask. Vehicles can't get down the narrow lanes that are above the Ghats. The rooms are clean and tidy- the food is fine and the roof top resturants has a 180* view of the Ganga. Your only 10 minutes walk along the river ghats to get to where the nightly Puja take place. Catch a boat at sunrise to view the new light bathing the ghats full of Hindus who come to this Holy river .

              The best hotel in Varanasi”
              SITA Guest House is the best hotel we stayed in India during our 3-weeks holidays! The owner and his sons are really friendly and helpful. They organised us a boat trip (fair price), they allowed to take shower in the evening, after check out (it was about 50 C, and we were really in need after whole day sightseeing). They told us where to sip really good Masala Chai in the neighbourhood (and it was the best Masala ever). The owner cooked a dinner specially for us, though the restaurant was already closed. The room was quite clean, AC was working, hot shower, nice river view - there was everything you need for this price :)

              Enjoyed our stay very much. Great location. Wonderful hosts. Food in the rooftop was good (we prefer to stick with the Indian menu), the hospitality was great. Contact the hotel for pickup from the airport. A taxi will leave you at the main road, about a 10 minute walk through narrow alleyways to the hotel. If course you will immediately be picked up by a guide, but knowing your guide is from the hotel makes the experience a bit more comfortable. Notes to management: a squeegee it mop in the bathroom would be really useful. Also a shelf for toiletries would be great.

              Location and food
              Difficult to rate this place, it's less a hotel than a run-down guest house. But it's overlooking the Ganges, and it's relatively cheap. The bed and room was big enough, comfortable bed, but quite shabby room. Don't expect it to be like a standard hotel. But the TV and Wifi and shower and hot water worked, though not strong water pressure. If you can cope with the basic standard of the hotel I would recommend this place because of it's location. The rooftop restaurant overlooked the Ganges River and served surprisingly good Indian food, all vegetarian.

              Staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a restaurant on the top floor. It's a good basic hotel close to evening Arati place. The only small inconvenience you have to walk by foot to reach it, there is no way to access directly by car. If you want to stay in the Old part of Varanasi that's a good place. Beware of drug dealers selling hashish on the ghat, don't talk to them or take anything as they may try to drug then mug the tourist

              Access to boatrides at ghat, enjoying sunrise, close to temples
              As Parents, we have enjoyed retired life for a few years now and it was our desire to visit the holy city of Benaras or Varanasi/Kashi and this visit was truly enjoyable. We had a good stay at Sita Guesthouse visited the River Ganga for a boat ride seeing all the sights, viewed the Ganga Aarti in the evening and viewed the early morning sunrise as well. All in all it was a great trip and I feel this hotel is good for its ambience, location close to ghats and also for visits to the Kashi Vishwanath temple and Kali temple. Thank you Agoda...

              Good river view location
              Unfortunately, the hotel is overpriced for what you will get. The staff was trying to be helpful, but very unprofessional and clumsy in dealing with foreigners. There were about ten different men working, but they didn't communicate with each other, so everything had to be explained again when you returned to the lobby and there was somebody else. There were no women on staff. All rooms have a balcony to the Ganges. The rooms were moist, electrical fittings worked occasionally. Access to the hotel can be a bit tricky with luggage. Easiest is to go down to the main ghat and walk south along the ghats.Keep the balcony door shut if you don't like monkeys in your room. A old man was hanging out in the lobby trying to offer his services as a guide. He turned out to be an alcoholic and couldn't give more information about the sites than what you can read in your "Lonely Planet". Avoid the restaurant, better value for money can be found easily.

              Excellent location. Friendly staff.”
              Location, staff.
              Staff were very helpful; they picked us up from the main street (the hotel is difficult to find if you go through the alleys, but easy if you just go down to the Main Ghat, turn left, and walk for 5 minutes or so.) Staff also helped us with some do's and don'ts in Varanasi, offered to arrange trips (but were not pushy). The rooms were reasonably clean, about average in this region. The view from the rooftop restaurant is amazing, the food is good (not surprisingly Indian better than non-Indian), but takes a while to be prepared. (Shows it's freshly made, so fine with us).
