Hi all - it has been 7 years since my wife and I last step foot on the soils of India.
Understandably much would have changed, gotten worse and stayed the same - time immemorial.

So my question is: Can we rock on up to Varanasi and easily find good basic accommodation without booking in advance?

We are planning to stay for 3 weeks and like the flexibility of being able to stay in different neighbour hoods along the ghats and old city.

On our last venture we travelled far too much of India far too quickly - spending 3 days at most locations. (5+ when we were stuck ill on 2 occasions) On every occasion we just showed up and found accommodation last minute, 9 times out of 10 it was cheap and effortless (omitting Pahraganj ).
Room prices do appear to have sky rocketed since we last travelled - we were paying 150r -250r for a quality double room with private toilet (50r in some places). The current trend appears to be 800r - 1500r.
