Welcome to Suraj Guest House!

Experience a warm and friendly stay in the most ancient & holy city of India. This is a small family guest house which is located near the holy river Ganges. The family house is situated in the oldest part of the city, the building is over 100 years old and the guest house has been running for 13 years.

We have five private rooms with all good services. With a beautiful sunrise and river view, with holy morning mantra chants from the Lord Shiva-temples surrounding the house, the roof-top is also a good place for yoga and meditation. We have also a very nice common area where you easily meet other guests.

Suraj Guest House is situated just a 4 minute walk from the main market, the Golden Temple, and offers a nice, clean, quiet, family-oriented accommodation for tired and weary tourists as well as those looking for adventure.

Near to the main market, 2 km from Varanasi railway station. Located in Chowk area, the street name is Lalita ghat, near Ganges River. Very near to Golden Temple & Nepali Temple.

BEWARE: -
Please be careful with "local illegal guides" or taxi drivers who get commission from certain hotels for bringing guests there. They will always try to confuse you and insist that they should take you somewhere else. This is because of the commission business, but Suraj Guest House doesn't give any commission to these street guys.

Therefore it is better if you call us on arrival in Varanasi, and we will come and pick you up. Or give us the information of your train/flight, with time, date etc. Then we will know when and where to pick you up. You will only pay the normal transport fee.

It has happened before that taxi drivers "help" tourists to call to us and then are told that the guest house is full. This is pure cheating, they are calling a friend who already knows what to say to you. They don't call us. So beware of this, please.
Once we have your booking, you can rest assured we also have your room ready.
Prices are per person per night.

BEWARE:
Please, be careful with taxi drivers and 'local illegal' guides at the train station/airport. We can arrange the pick up for you, just send us an email with the details of your flight/train, date, name & time of arrival. You can also call us once you arrive.
*** You will only pay the normal transport fee***

You will find that the street alleys in Varanasi can be confusing to a new arrival. We suggest you contact us for pick-up to save yourself the frustration of trying to walk and find the hostel yourself. We will arrange for a rickshaw driver to be waiting for you at your arrival point with your name on a card. He will drive to Chowk (the main road), then walk you through the confusing alleys, to the hostel. You will regret this if you don't let us pick you up (just saying).

If however you choose to come here on your own, ask to be taken to the Chowk Police Station. From there you will have to ask local people where the Lalita Ghat is, as none of the streets are marked. Be on the look out for signs that say �Tree Baba� or ask locals to point you towards Suraj Guesthouse (they are in the same building). Even if you take a rickshaw you will have to walk 5min from the main road, as rickshaws are not allowed in the alleys in Lalita Ghat.

* Rickshaw from varanasi Train Station: 200-250Rs apx
* Rickshaw from Airport: 600-700Rs apx
* Rickshaw from Main Bus Terminal: 200-250Rs apx
*Rickshaw from mugalsatai st. 400-450 apx
