We were lucky to get a room at Hotel Ganges View. This gorgeous boutique hotel is like an art gallery, full of beautiful books, pictures and objects in display. It is a bit overpriced, but given its convenient location in a relatively clean and quiet location close to the river (Assi ghat), its flexible staff, its marvelous interior, and its heaters in all guest rooms during winter, the price is worth paying for.
