Rashmi Guest House

Hotel in Varanasi

Incense-scented, white-tile corridors and marble staircases lead to a variety of cramped but smart rooms boasting high marks for cleanliness and style. The more expensive rooms have views of Man Mandir Ghat. Dolphin, the hotel's rooftop restaurant, is a fine place for a beer-chased evening meal and one of the old town's few nonveg options.

The lack of public sitting areas or balconies make the place feel a bit claustrophobic.
