Varanasi lodging - to ghat or not to ghat etc etc - help!

Jump to last reply

We'll be in Varanasi for 3 nights during our quickly approaching two month trip in India.
Most of the planning (which we've done ourselves) is finished. Just now looking at lodging for Varanasi. Reviews are all over the place. Have no need to stay in 4 or 5 star biggees.
Am considering Rashmi Guest House (has availability) - which some love and others despise apparently. Also Ganges View Hotel, Homestay, Alka Hotel. Would love to hear rants and raves from fodors folks. . . . e.g calinurse - saw your very positive review of Homestay. .. Liked the idea of helpful owner ready to ease the hassle of Varanasi . . . but a little further out etc. Any others I should look at? We're pretty adventurous and spry 60 somethings, well travelled, flexible.
