Vishnu Rest House
Lonely Planet review
Accessed through a small courtyard with family homes coming off it, or directly from Pandhey Ghat itself, this simple guesthouse has bags of character. Rooms are poky, and not the cleanest, but the atmosphere is friendly and the communal terrace overlooking the ghat is a winner.
Our independent authors have visited Vishnu Rest House and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Varanasi .
