The hotel is centrally located in the Cantt. area. The room alloted to me was beyond expectations, very clean. So also the toilet and bathroom. The buffet breakfast was excellent, there being a lot of variety. As I was on a business trip, I could not enjoy the swimming pool and spa, and the lawn which were located in the hotel. A beautiful bar with retro music. The food was a bit on the higher side, which was the only minus point. Else I thoroughly enjoyed my stay and will definitely visit this hotel again on my next visit to Varanasi.

We stayed at Surya in December 2014, for 2 nights with family. Found it perfectly suitable for friends and family stays. Room was clean, specious and well maintained. Staff was pretty cooperative. Food arrangement was great as well. Bit far from banks of river Ganga, but surely worth a stay. Open garden and pool are like icing on the cake! WARM stay in DEVINE Varanasi. RECOMMENDED for sure.

What a place, this former Nepali Khothi is just amazing, garden, pools, food....all.
Our two night stay at the Sweet will be a life time memorable moment.
The best is for sure the Hotel Staff, they are all dedicated to the guests, here we found the genuine meaning of services.
Dinner at Canton Royale Restaurant, located at the heritage kothi, we exprienced fine indian food.
Banarsi Jalebis in Breakfast at Rajdarbar is unforgetable.
Thanks to all the Hotel Surya Team for this unforgetable stay.

I landed in Surya hotel via reviews and photographs through Trip Adviser. Though there were comparable hotels, but I chose this property due to its nice gardens and heritage look.
I was pleased with my selection when I reached the hotel. Though the room-size was just ok, but it was clean and descent. But I feel some refurbishing is needed in bathrooms .
I stayed there for four days and I liked my mornings in the garden. That was the only time one could afford to sit outside otherwise it was scorching heat throughout the day. The pool is descent and was opened for outside children. This made pool-side quite 'happening' in early mornings.There are many hotels nearby as Rivatas and Radisson but I was happy with my selection. Perhaps mall-road is one of the nicest places to stay in Varansi being in cant-areas. There is a mall-JVG and a nice park at walking distance from the hotel.
The breakfast spread was really good and I loved it. Infact I had a good interaction with the Assistant General Manager Mr Samik Bardhan who made my stay really pleasurable. A friendly person with keen eye for details. He even made breakfast complimentary for my friend who visited me at the hotel, which deserves a special mention. I also witnessed some nice 'towel-art' in my room, all thanks to Mr Samik.
Though there were events lined-up daily in the evenings in the hotel but it never bothered me as a guest. On the contrary we could see some beautiful lightening daily in the evenings.
I found the restaurant 'canton royale' slightly expensive but the food preparation was good.
All in all a recommendable stay!!!

Stay at Surya,Varanasi was not at all comfortable .The rooms are so small and congested, its not worth to be called a deluxe room with that exorbitant rate.There is hardly any space to move around in the room.

We got 2 rooms on the first floor of this hotel... cannot recall the room numbers precisely but 104/114 and 105 / 115. The photographs on the hotel website are not telling of the badly maintained condition of the rooms. The wood was chipped in places, the walls were paled out, the paint had chipped of the verandah railing, the bathroom plumbing in both the rooms was not working. The support staff was cordial and helpful, however the reception area is slow and cannot manage many guests arriving at the same time. The lawn area is nice, and the pool area looks simply amazing. Unfortunately we checked out of the rooms in a couple of hours and shifted to another hotel, so could not experience the stay much.

The room facilities of this hotel are more one rather than three stars. My five day stay at the hotel was inundated with problems from check-in. I was given a room then was told i had to move the following day to another room because the workman needed to do some upgrading work. I was put into a room with incessant noise from the workman on the floor above, no tea and coffee making facilities and a phone that did not work, causing me to miss some important business dealings with colleagues from Delhi. I waiting all afternoon in the room expecting my calls....the front desk had assumed i had gone out....and thus i missed several important calls due to their broken phone. Bathrooms were filthy. I finally paid the extra cost and upgraded myself to the superior rooms which were adequate. The saving grace of this hotel is the restaurant, which is excellent in every way! The service, food quality and presentation is consistently outstanding. If not for the restaurant, this hotel would not survive on its merits.
