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.

I & my Wife Stayed in the Hotel from 17th to 19 th March 2015. The Hotel is very comfortable, Rooms are not big but good value for the money.
The Staff are very friendly & willing to help. They are led by a very nice owners Mr & Mrs Gautam. They were keen to listen to suggestions & Improve. They interact with customers & make you feel at home.
The Beds are comfortable, All things are working in the Room. The Room & Bathroom are Clean. The Tarriff included buffet breakfast, which was quite sumptuos & with quite a good variety. The Staff are eager to help.
The Garden is beautiful & Well maintained. Most of the rooms have Balconies which overlook the Garden. There is service on the Lawns in the evening. they have a Coffeebar under the Mangotree. The Dinner is Alacarte and was quite Tasty.
I will gladly recommend it to my friends.
They also arrange transport & conduct tours.
I wish them goodluck & hope they will further improve.

Exclusivity in Ethnicity :-
We were scheduled to visit Varanasi on an important social entrepreneurial agreement and on a short call were to freeze upon a place that was to be in the heart of the city and close to our entrepreneurial tie-up partner organization's office.
After looking at the options and then seeing picturesque elevation of the once residence of a Nepal king and now Hotel Surya, anyone is compelled to look in. We made our choice immediately as it was near to our place of work although a bit of apprehension lurking.
We arrived in Varanasi on the 11th of March 2015 and stayed until the 14 th March. On the same day before boarding the flight we requested the stay and travel coordinator Shri Shailendra for a possibility of visiting Lord Kashi Vishwanathji mandir directly from the airport before we check in and frankly was expecting abdenial. But on the contrary, He sent us comfortable Tata Indigo (the best option on those by lanes) and the best ever chauffeur in Nandlal who not only diligently spotted us right from the arrival gate as he dint have right details and he gave the entire run in of the journey from airport and the places covered and entire religious ethos of Benares with history of Lord Vishwanathji mandir. He personally took us inside the mandir and made us seek blessings of the Jyotirling, which is one of the 12 Pious Jyotirling of Lord Shiva. A must see for any devotee as well as a tourist.
His guidance as well as treatment was unbelievingly meticulous and polite for his humble self thus showing the rich heritage of the city. He has complete knowledge of the city and its history.
Once we reached Surya we were pleasantly amazed by its structure and well kept and gardened lawns and nice decor. Very similar to what's displayed showing the same grandeur as on the net and even a lot better as you see it in person. A good blend of modernization amongst ethnic structure. And our concern and apprehension of not being a higher star hotel and how it may turn out was entirely rested. Though not an official 4 star hotel yet the meticulously kept decor and food quality and taste Is incomparable.
Food - Before you order for your favoured dish do try the Maharaja Thali first. It's relishing. Rich in taste, spices and with quality at its best. The insistence to try it was warmly placed by Ankit, who was very courteous and diligent, managing the 13 odd foreign tourists food and us at the same time.
The breakfast in the mornings too covers all Asian as well as continental tastes to cater to the foreign tourists. I would specially mention Shivkumar who is at his hospitable best and eager to arrange any particular thing right on your table and also politely wanting to know what our likes are so to arrange the same the following morning. Very thoughtful and reaching out.
We travel to best of 5 star properties and I won't hesitate a bit to rate the food to be one of the best in complete quality as in Deluxe Hotels. One tends to compare their past experience with any new places and even any regular luxury traveler would love every piece of Surya. Its simply good. A comfortable abode for your religious visit.
Surya has all facilities right from Spa to Swimming pool and Sol Bar and Canton Royale multi cuisine restaurant. We couldn't spend more time inside the Hotel as were tied up for business but had our each meal here as it was incomparable.
My only suggestion to the management would be to look in the room services. The turn around time is way beyond immediate needs. What's so great otherwise should not be a limitation and I'm sure Surya management will do the needful the next time we will visit Surya to make it a complete experience.
I will recommend Surya for anyone either on business trip or family for religious visits. Its location being in the heart of the city, the canttonment area in the Mall road makes you reach any place at ease. Its diligent car services with quality chauffeurs makes things easier.
Overall a superb experience...

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.

Only stayed here a few nights. Room was comfortable and clean with a lovely small balcony. Delightful courtyard and swimming pool. Downside is that it is a long way from the Ganges and the ghats. Hotel catered to a large function one night and the noise continued till late and was very annoying.

We are returning guest. We come there every 2 to 3 years for the past 25 years.
This time we came to spent one month for our 25th wedding anniversary. After one week they asked us to leave for one night to accommodate the guests for the wedding they were hosting, they gave us 1 day notice. Even though the hotel has a beautiful yard and nice swimming pool, we will not be returning as their customer service is very bad. I guess the NOISY wedding parties are more important than returning guests.
Cleartrip’s hotel ratings take into account numerous factors such as independent rating systems like FHRAI, media recognition and post-trip feedback from our customers. We make all attempts to keep this information up to date, but cannot guarantee service levels at the hotel to be consistent.
