Lonely Planet review
This excellent ghat-side option could use an attentive eye on its exteriors, but the pretty much spotless rooms, either opening open onto, or overlooking, a large, plant-filled courtyard or the Ganges, draw the lion's share of care here. In the far corner, a terrace juts out over Meer Ghat for one of the best views in all of Varanasi, a view shared from the balconies of eight of the pricier rooms.
Our independent authors have visited Hotel Alka and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Varanasi.
