Varanasi Accommodation Varanasi Lake And Houses

Varanasi has been accommodating visitors for hundreds of years with thousands making the pilgrimage each year to this holy place. Therefore finding the right Varanasi accommodation for your needs is made easy. Varanasi also has a ‘paying guesthouse scheme’ which has a list of over one hundred homes available for visitors to stay in for very cheap that helps the tourist traffic find adequate accommodation. To search this option just visit UP Tourism’s websitewebsite.

For those seeking a lavish stay there are Heritage hotels and five star hotels while there is an extensive range of mid to cheap hotels for those travellers on a budget. Most of Varanasi’s accommodation is situated in the narrow lanes that can be compared to a bowl of noodles snaking back from the ghats along the length of the river Ganges. There is a concentration of accommodation surrounding the Assi Ghat suitable for both domestic and international guests. Many hotels have wonderful views of the river in their deluxe suites so if you want a good lookout spot, ask for the room with the view, likely to be more expensive but well worth it for the view of the Ganges at dawn.

With such an array of temples, ghats, palaces and shrines, Varanasi continues to attract even the most incisive travellers as well as the devout Hindus.
