What catches ones attention at first glance is the general cleanliness and layout of the hotel. Located in the business hub of Sigra, it sports a landscaped garden and pool. The reception and lobby is like that of a star property. The rooms are large (larger than any other budget hotel), with sufficient furniture and elegant light fittings. Strangely the rooms lack a calling bell. It is the only budget hotel in Varanasi to have a water-jet in the toilets. Hot water too is abundantly available round the clock. I had booked the hotel through travel portal agoda.com which does not have a facility to register kids. When the receptionist raised the issue of additional payment the Manager of the hotel intervened and arranged for a waiver. In the evening while I was gathering information about the way to the Dasaswamedh Ghat, I was offered a ride by an auto attached to the hotel. To my utter surprise I found the rates to be highly reasonable. The room service too needs special mention, I have during the many years of travel never seen such lightening service; the quality of food too was awesome. The parking in front of the Hotel is enough for quite a few cars. Overall I left with a good impression and with a promise made to myself that whenever I return to the Holy city, I'm going to put up at Siddhartha.

The hotel is nice and clean, the people that work there seem to be very nice untill they find out you are not going to give them tips. The bedroom
was clean, they gave us towels and soap for the shower. The problem in this hotel is the swimmingpool if you are a woman and you get in the swimmingpool with a bikini on, all the men that work there don't stop looking at you and they make you feel bad, so you end up getting out and back to your room. Wifi only Works at the lobby, but thats usual over there. Food at the hotel is good.

The hotel is centrally located and quite near to the Kashi Vishwanath temple. The entrance is fine with a small car parking within the hotel compound and a lawn on
the side. The lounge is well decorated with no of separate seating arrangement. Well maintained.
The room was quite big with adequate furnishing and decoration for a budget hotel. The ac was working fine. The toilet was also clean with a buth tub. Toiletteries was also provided though of an average quality.
The food was good. The bar is in a tin roofed shack but well maintained. Service was little slow.
Overall a good budget hotel for one or two night's stay
Would like to mention that there is a shop in the name of Bhagwanlila for Benarasi sarees very near to the hotel. It is mainly a wholesale shop sending sarees to prime shops in Kolkata and elsewhere. We had visited two more shops but find this to have quite a good and contemporary variety of sarees, scarfs, dress material, etc.

Our cab driver brought us to hotel inspite of really bad reviews. We were shown two rooms and we chose Room 205 overlooking pool. There are many rooms yet to be refurbished but if you take a room on second floor, bargain hard then this is a good choice. Free breakfast, free wifi in lobby and in many rooms and close to Dashashwedha Ghat

Me and my husband planned to have our weekend at Varanasi and had booked a Maharaja Deluxe A/C double room through Stayzilla.com and had direct conversation with the hotel staff
to get our room ready latest by 10:00am as our train will be arriving there by 9:30am to which the management staff agreed gladly. But the trauma began when we checked in the so called "one of the best" hotel. First we were told that our room is not ready and we have to wait in the reception. Then after around an hour they provided us a very low standard room with dirty linens, cracked walls and no AC. When we complained about it, they told there aren't any other rooms available. We then spoke to Stayzilla staff who then again spoke to the hotel reception staff and guess what !! in minutes a they got us shifted to original room.
The pain doesn't end there. We went to the restaurant (Amrapali) to have some breakfast as we had planned to visit Sarnath that day and ordered puri bhaji. It was served but with all the dust that a roadside thelawala is supposed to have. Again on complaining the restaurant staff admitted that since they have just opened the restaurant they didnt get time to change the oil in the kadai. Unbelievable man!! What an excuse.
Finally we left for Sarnath and returned hotel at around 9:30pm just to find out that our luggages were had been ransacked and everything just flung back in it. Absolute disgrace! We couldn't even sleep whole night.
I must say very poor hospitalization and management and I would like to say that think twice before checking in this hotel.
