Hotel: Scindhia Guest House
This guesthouse has rooms with very nice view . Although it always took them forever to cook and serve the food we ordered, their food was great. It’s nothing fancy, just the basics like toast and porridge, but nevertheless, they tasted so good (Here is a post about their yummy banana honey toast 😀 ).
Their rooms are relatively cheap when compare with other guesthouses with river view. Some reviews posted online saying that the guesthouse is a bit too difficult to find. Yet we didn’t have any problem finding our way back to the guesthouse even after dark. Since the guesthouse is located next to the river, to get back, instead of going through all the twists and turns in the market place, all one needs to do is walking along the riverside.
The guesthouse also arranges boat rides and Sarnath day trip for their customers. Their price is not the cheapest, but competitive. Instead of wasting our time in searching and bargaining with the locals for a slightly better deal (and it is not guaranteed that one could surely find a cheaper deal with the same quality of service), we just let the guesthouse arranged the morning boat ride and the Sarnath day trip for us. We are satisfied with what we got. So, that’s fair enough.
