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.

As far as hotels are concerned, Hotel Surya was one of the highlights of my last trip to India. A cultural and historical playground, Varanasi is a must see if you are in northern India and I highly recommend you stay at the Hotel Surya while enjoying what this wonderful city has to offer. An early 19th century palace is the center piece for this awesome resort and it's a truly unique experience to reside in a piece of the history that makes this city so special. The staff is absolutely amazing. Everyone seemingly has a smile on their face at all times and are more than eager to help with anything. Surrounded on all sides by the palace and rooms, the hotel grounds are remarkably tranquil considering the hustle bustle of the city. I was enthralled to be able to enjoy a proper cup of coffee or a latte in their on sight coffee shop. The Canton restaurant is well run and the chef is very talented offering a wide variety of fare. The rooms were super luxurious and worth a lot more than they were charging. The inclusive buffet breakfast is no joke either. All and all, this was a great experience and I highly recommend Hotel Surya for anyone passing through Varanasi.

An oasis of calm in a noisy city, which despite the modernisation and upgrading being carried out, proved to be peaceful. From arrival to departure the wonderful staff contributed to a wonderful visit. The restaurant and bar provide quality food served in a timely manner and reasonably priced. If there was something that stood out above everything else, it would have to be sleeping in the most comfortable hotel bed that I have ever experienced.

Restaurant was fantastic, Great food served by friendly staff. Well maintained swimming pool was also a massive bonus. We had noise from refurbishment but it wasnt too bad, as this has to be done sometime and we were there at end of season. Definetely recommended for stays up to a few days.

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 arrived late in the afternoon after a long 10 hour drive from Lumbini in Nepal. The rooms were not the biggest, but were clean. The bathroom needed remodeling. After having a shower, the entire floor of the bathroom was wet, so if you wanted to use the toilet, you had to walk over the wet floor. The rest of the hotel was good. We had a late lunch at the restaurant and then went back for dinner. Service was a little slow, but food quite nice. Breakfast was also good. The hotel has a lot of open space with lawn and gardens which are all kept immaculately. I would definitely stay there again.

I stayed in the hotel with my boyfriend just one night but it was the worst thing I could have done in my life. As it is supposed to be a high standard hotel, i left a considerable amount of money in the room before I went out to roam around the city. I put the money in my glasses case beneath the tv. When I came back i packed and checked out but forgot the glasses case in the room. I remembered some hour later and called the hotel and told them I had left some money in the room and that i would return to pick it up as soon as possible. It took me 3 hours because I was already outside of Varanasi. When I arrived and spoke with the manager, he was very serious and not helpful at all, not willing to help. My boyfriend did a search of all the staff, making them almost naked, but the money never appeared, there are 1000 places where they can hide the money, they are not going to carry it within themselves). Only 2 of the staff had entered the room after we left,one for checking that everything was ok, and the other one for cleaning. None of them gave me the money back, but I did get the empty glasses case, the money was not there anymore. The manager didnt do anythng about it, just said he trusted his staff.
