A continental buffet breakfast is included, free evening boat rides for evening prayers are offered, and there is live music daily. Guests particularly appreciate this hotel’s attentive service.

Palace On Ganges7.1/10 ratingout of 33 reviews · $35 avg price/ night
PROS: good food. Great location, close to happening and culturally rich Assi Ghat. the area can be noisy. earplugs are recommended.CONS: more electrical outlets- none were close to the headboard. The room size is small. improve on furniture and make it less clunky to give a spacious feeling in the room.
