Does anybody have a first hand idea about the standard double ac rooms of Alka hotel on meer ghat?How good/bad are they.The hotel says they are without window or balcony and cost 1400/- plus tax.

Anyone sharing their experience are most welcome

When I was there I had a double room with a window and then they gave me a less expensive single room with a window. Alka hotel is probably the nicest hotel on the ghats in that price range. It was so noisy on the ghats I could have lived without a window. There's kids playing cricket constantly on the ghats, and dogs and people shouting at all hours. I don't know how long you're planning to stay, but you can probably live with no window and they might be able to change your room if you change your mind while you're there.

We are planning to stay only a couple of days..I was particular about the window part as I had some apprehensions about 2 facts I heard about Alka

1)Ac doesnt work on generators and the power cut situation in varanasi is horrible, to the best of my knowledge.

2)They switch off ac from the mains outside the room in daytime.Without window, i thought it would be a furnace in humid august.

Can you appease these two of my apprehensions?
