This trip was beautiful only because of this stay. Rooms are very nice in the price range. Buffet breakfast was awesome. Room service, cleanliness, environment inside hotel were just superb. Check In was very easy & hassle free. Nice co-operative staff. Only issue was with hot water supply.

Hotel Ideal tower is ideally located at Varanasi away from the busy streets. Very courteous staff in the reception, rooms are very clean and the food awesome. I will definitely recommend this hotel for others and its services are more then a five star hotel.

Old massive hotel where we had good time for two days and three nights. Luxury bathroom spacious rooms , finely antique decorated , very clean and comfortable. Beds of hotel are really double king sized. All is good here but they just need to care about internet connection and food serving option because both was not so good on the moment when we were there. Rest is find food is good and value of money.

I visited this place with my parents during December 2013 (I'm just 13 years old).My father had to attend his alumni meet so me and my mother accompanied him. We stayed in this hotel for 1 night 2 days.It was a good experience. The were big and spacious. Also the staff was very helpful. I would just like to advice you, if you order room service, please order less as the quantity they give is huge!

After an interesting (to put it mildly) overnight train trip in a 3 tier AC train, I was over the moon when I opened the door to my room at the Ideal Tower! It was enormous! It had a king size double bed, a sitting area and a dining area. A tiny balcony and a view down onto the main road. The restaurant staff were friendly and attentive. The front desk staff were efficient and knowledgeable. The foyer was inviting and our overall impression was one of relief after our train ride and one of contentment at the good facilities provided to us. The doorman must be mentioned - he was kindness and politeness personified. All in all, I thoroughly recommend this hotel. My daughter and I were here for two nights.

The hotel has good clean rooms. Food is acceptable, however if you are looking for western cuisine, it is not up to the mark. The staff at the reception are kind of indifferent and don't show much interest towards the guest. After checking in the guys at the counter did not bother about asking the bell boys to help me with the luggage or guiding me to the room...you are on your own. It's not that the staff are impolite but they lack the professional touch.

Large old hotel. Foyer, hallways and room smelt musty.
Spacious room, which had a seating area and king size bed. Great bed! The room been recently repainted. The room was very clean, but the furniture was old and scuffed. There was an old bathtub in the bathroom. Time to have it replaced. Good lighting in the bathroom.
The hotel was very noisy before dawn. Lots of door slamming, thumping in hallways and running water. Hotel could do with some soundproofing.
There was an attractive outdoor tiled swimming pool. Was immaculately clean, even in winter though far too cold to swim.
Dining room overlooked pool. Catered more to Indian guests, but food was good. Room service food arrived in 20-30 minutes and was hot and tasty.

This hotel was booked as part of a package of 4 and 5 star hotels in India. The rest of the hotels were all acceptable, The Ideal Towers in Varanasi
was as far from "ideal" as one could possibly get. On arrival, nothing was prepared as confirmed, and the staff was not really interested in correcting any mistakes. The higher the rank, the worse it was (kudos to the room cleaning guy who actually tried to do his best!) - the front desk manager was the worst and most hostile.
Fun fact: Their sister hotel (same owners) next door is a nice and decent place with friendly staff. We ended up having our meals there whenever possible,
Positive detail: the wi-fi worked.
Best advice: Stay away from this hotel!
