"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."

"Clarks was the first tourist hotel in Varanasi and is showing its age. Rooms and decor are a bit tired. However, we found int comfortable and the service reasonable. We enjoyed a swim in the pool at the back of the hotel, and enjoyed numerous meals in the restaurant. I like Indian food and found that the presentation and quantities served in restaurant to be good. I loved the vegeterian food there. If I return to Varanasi I would be happy to stay there again."

"The hotel is in the cantonment area. I was told that the food is very good too. I didnt have the opportunity to taste their meals, except for the breakfast. The breakfast spread was quite well spread out with sufficient options and variety. The room was good - the usual amenities with tea/coffee maker and a hair dryer. The desk staff seemed a bit distant, but the rest of the staff were kind and cooperative. "

"The location of this hotel couldn't have been better. It is right on the river side and takes 2 min walk to reach the nearest Ghat. Also this is very close to the main ghats in Varanasi where you can see the Sandhya Arati, visit the Kashi Vishwanath temple and go on boating trips into the river. The A/C room was quite comfortable with a private "hanging" balcony where one can sit and relax enjoying the awesome views... The approach to the hotel is a bit difficult but can be managed and if you call them up before coming the staff will be happy to guide you in the right directions. Also honestly speaking most of the hotels located on the Ghats of Ganga in Varanasi will have similar approach issues."
