"just to set the stage: i live in los angeles, travel for work quite a bit (have highest statuses on airlines and at major hotel chains)and am used to elite treatment. so after having read all the mixed reviews on hhi, i was very concerned it was not going to be to my liking. i even considered canceling the reservation, but taj and even raddison were fully booked, so i had to keep it. and i am very happy i did. i actually liked the hotel and do not understand the negative reviews at all. yes, if you are expecting a crystal flute of chilled dom perignon upon arrival, you probably shouldn't go to varanasi on the first place. but there was a welcome drink! yes, there was some wear and tear in the bathroom, but the sheraton hotel i once stayed at in connecticut was in much worse shape. at hhi, all the piping worked as well as ac. the staff was super attentive. room service arrived 15-20 minutes after the order was placed (probably the fastest i've ever experienced). being from the us, we were careful about eating any outside food, so we had all our meals at the hotel and they were excellent! we could not wait until the next meal (i'm serious). on the first morning, the doorman recommended we hire a tuk tuk for the day and that was the best experience! the driver brought us to all the places we wanted to go and suggested more interesting ones. a tip, if you do go on tuk tuk in varanasi, it is always helpful to take a shot of whisky beforehand (it makes the "i'm going to die now" feeling more manageable). overall, hhi exceeded my expectations. great value for the money. easy booking through agoda. i will definitely stay there again and recommend for everyone else to do so as well."

"I have been to Varanasi almost 20 times. And I have seen the good, bad and the ugly. Pros- Rooms very clean, very descent staff who are not that crazy for tip. We got a spacious room. The room service is very good. The restaurants in the hotel are great. The food is awesome . Every dish we tried, veg or non veg was delicious. Cons : The hotel is old so some ameneties have worn out due to use. The restaurant takes 20-30 minutues to serve food when ordered from ala carte. Would definitely come back here. Its about 5km from the Vishwanath Temple . You can get Auto or Ola very easily. The cost is approx 100-150 inr depending on your bargaining skills. Sarnath is super close , about 20 mins. There arn't a lot of places to eat around this area so you have eat at the hotel itself. The food is pricey but tastes great."
