Excellent Heritage property with an extraordinary view
Exclusive Heritage property right on the banks of majestic Ganges and Darbhanga Ghat. Helpful staff. Special Thanks to Rohit who helped us in finding the ways to temple and also selection of food etc.
Varanasi as shown by Brijrama
Fantastic, Amazing and Awesome. On a chilly November morning, we were welcomed at the Bahisasur ghat by courteous and well-mannered staff for a boat pick-up, the staff offered to sanitise our hands and offered us hot ginger and lemon tea served in traditional poorva or kullad which was just refreshing. While passing by the iconic ghats the host of the boat kept giving us detailed information on each of the ghats. The boat was well maintained and the boat ride itself was comfortable, I had never experienced such services on a boat and the hospitality right at the beginning of the stay left us in awe. We passed by the Dashashwamedh ghat to approach the magnificent palace, as we arrived by boat and got the first glimpse of our home for the next few days. As we climbed the stairs to reach the entrance of the palace, a traditional welcome by priest awaited us, the priest welcomed us with holy chants, chandan tikka and we were offered a sacred rudraksh mala, also as a part of their COVID-19 protocol we were offered to sanitise our shoes and get our temperature checked for safety and we felt relieved to know that the hotel is consciously taking up safety and hygiene measures. As we reached the lobby level the manager greeted us and escorted us to our room for an in-room contactless check-in while maintaining a safe distance and we did not have to wait in the lobby to sign arrival forms. Our room was upgraded to a river view room which was a cherry on the cake. As we entered the room, another round of refreshments awaited us, this time it was a glass of herbal kadha to boost immunity and help with the fatigue from travelling. In the evening they took us for a palace tour where they told the entire 209 years of history of the palace and we could see the efforts which went in restoring the palace, next we went to experience Ganga aarti at Dashashwamedh Ghat by boat and post the aarti which again was an experience to remember. We also chose to have our dinner in candlelight dinner at their terrace overlooking the mighty river, the whole experience was royal and entailing. The traditional food items like nimona were homely while the thin crust pizza was fresh, tasty and looked appetizing. As Brijrama Palace is located in the heart of the city and many places of interest like the Sri Kashi Vishwanath Mandir, Sri Gauri Kedareshwara mandir, Kaal Bhairav Mandir, Kashi Chaat Bhandar, AssiGhat, Manikarnika Ghat, Chausatti Ghat can all be covered on foot and exploring the gullies of Benares was an experience in its own which becomes so easy because we were right there and we just had to step into the back alley of the hotel or walk by the ghats. All in all, we enjoyed our brief stay at Varanasi and we believe that Varanasi from the eyes of Brijrama is the best Varanasi that we could have experienced, I am a proud patron of Brijrama Palace and will recommend it to my friends and family for their stays in Varanasi.
Royalty at its best
The location is awesome. Everyone goes to Varanasi to visit the ghats and this palace is right on the ghats. We were upgraded to a beautiful room The staff is very courteous and helpful Their complimentary boat rides are fantastic
Extraordinary in every way
From the Hotel itself, to the location, amenities and staff this hotel exceeds expectations in every way. I want to tell you about all the little touches of excellence, but that would ruin the surprise. I've stayed in some of the finest hotels in the world over the last 30 years, and this one is the best hotel I have ever experienced. I can't wait to return.
A magical experience
Stayed at Brijrama palace along with a friend, right from the pickup at Rajghat the whole experience this felt special. While on the boat ride to the hotel, the hotel staff explained the history and folklore behind the various ghats, the check-in happened inside the room and was super smooth. The hotel staff was friendly, courteous, friendly and always ready to help. The boat ride we took for the aarti at the ghats was well serviced. The hotel also helped arrange for a holy dip at the ghat, the hotel is situated right on the ghats and the hotel staff ensured that we took care and did not slip on the ghats, also offered us towel as we came back after the dip. The ghat was well maintained and much cleaner than other ghats nearby. We found the hotel staff spot on, all the time. They were able to anticipate and understand our needs and recommended some of the best food places, they almost knew we wanted to try out local food. The palace has opulent interiors, clean rooms, bottom line I am sure that this hotel is offering superlative stay experiences in the whole of baneras. I highly recommend this place for your next visit to Varanasi and me myself will surely visit again as well.
