Dear fellow travel-lovers
I'll be visting the holy city of Varanasi this weekend. Can any of you please suggest a good ashram for stay in Dasaswamedh Ghat. I'd be needing a room for two. Cleanliness and hygiene are the main things im looking for.Also it would be good if the rooms are spacious and not not too small.I had visted Rishikesh some time back and loved my stay in Parmarth Niketan Ashram there.So im expecting to get some place like that. If there are no such asrhrams in dasaswamedh ghat, then please suggest some in any nearby area.
Thanks a ton!

Question Ashram in Varanasi

Hello Mauve, I'm coming to India for the month of January and, like you, I'm looking for a descent ashram in Varanasi - did you receive any recommendations you could share with me? Thank you.

Welcome to India!
I didnt stay in an ashram (as I was unable to book a room in one) but managed to find a very decent hotel in Chousatti Ghat which is 1 km away from Dasaswamedh Ghat-the most happening place in Varanasi. The hotel is called Sita Lodge. The rooms were very clean and the staff very friendly. There are different kinds of rooms to choose from starting from Rs 300 per night. You can find out the number of the hotel and some more details about it from the "hotels" section of this site. I'll give you the phone for advance booking if you aren't able to find it there. I read in one of the posts here that it is recommended to put up in a hotel rather than an ashram in Varanasi.But if you are fixed about staying in an ashram you may write to the Ma Anandamoyi ashram. I have seen some of its photographs and it looks good.
