This hotel is 5 star, and well worth every star, the location is spot on, over looking the ganges from two sides, my wife and I had the honeymoon suit,
with belcony, the room was very clean and nicely decorated,
The staff were very friendly and helpful, the rooftop restaurant food was reasonable priced, and very tasty, this hotel is situated at the northern end of the ganges, so you can walk straight on to the main walkway of the ganges and take in the atmosphere, superb,

This is a good 3* Heritage Hotel which formed a good base for us to explore from.. It is a 20 minute walk to the main Ghat (ceremony) which was
perfect as it was a welcomed relief to step away from the noise and hectic atmosphere to catch our breaths after a long day exploring.
Staff are friendly, food was great! We stayed for 3 nights....had breakfast each day which was delicious. We had dinner one night also and it was equally good. Great spot on the roof to relax and get a bit of a breeze during meals.
Rooms were well appointed with aircon. We had no hot water for a while but the staff brought buckets of hot water instead which did the job.
Safe, well maintained, personable, friendly, does everything it is meant to. Genuine and local atmosphere which is exactly as we wanted rather than an international brand with less local character.

The hotel is located on the Assi Ghat, near the river bank. Lots of auto & cycle rickshaws available near the hotel for going around. Rooms were tastefully done with
each room themed on a state / region of India. Rooms were compact. Staff were courteous & helpful.
Breakfast was very simple & the hotel can arrange for local sight seeing. They can also arrange for the early morning Arti @ Vishwanath Mandir. We took this facility & were happy with their services.
Overall a nice stay & we would love to stay with them again.

Location was good. Rooms were quaint. Did not have hot water for the two days we stayed there. As it was in 40 degrees not much of a problem but would be in winter. Room was cool. No other part of the hotel was air conditioned and was not. Rooftop restaurant was very basic but the Indian Breakfast was very good.

I feel whoever named this hotel ended up with a spelling mistake. It should have been tiny place on the ganges and not palace. The hotel has not more than
two rooms facing the ganges which is very very surprising. Rooms are very small in size and almost all rooms have non openable windows. Rooms do not have much of soundproofing as well. The rooms are named after famous cities in India. They have mesmerising art work and portraits in the rooms and common area walls. The hotel is located right at the start of assi ghat, which seems to be undergoing a massive construction.
They have a rooftop restaurant and basement dining area. Breakfast is served in the basement. We went once and the non ventilated room smelled terrible. They have live classical musical playing in the evenings there but we did not dare to venture again. The rooftop restaurant serves good food and gives a good view of the assi ghat.
Manpower were helpful but the hotel was understaffed. For the price this place is certainly a rip off and unless anyone has a very specific need of staying at assi ghat I would recommend giving this place a miss.
But, if you do find yourself here, there is an excellent pizzeria just 100 metres left from this place. It took us all by surprise with everything we ordered being fantastic. Apple pie in particular was delicious.
