Brijrama Palace Hotel
Varanasi

Brijrama Palace Hotel is a boutique hotel located on the fringes of the water's edge on the banks of the River Ganges, and just a stone's throw away from the famous Darbanga Ghat. Built out of solid sandstone, and an impressive heritage building, Brijrama Palace is one of the oldest landmarks in the city, dating back to 1812. It is the best place to stay if you are keen to be in the very heart of the action and experience Varanasi's intensity and unique atmosphere; the Ganges, the evening aarti and morning pujas can all be viewed from the palace itself.

The palace comprises of 32 well-appointed en-suite rooms and suites, each one has been individually decorated to combine Banarasi old world charm with a contemporary touch. The rooms back on to light and airy corridors, which allow the natural light to flood the hallways, and dotted throughout the palace there are private seating areas allowing for guests to soak up the panoramic views of the river and horizon. It’s the perfect spot for viewing sunrise and sunset too!

The hotel has two dining options; the Darhbhanga restaurant offers a selection of international vegetarian cuisines whilst the Kamalaya café has an al fresco seating area that overlooks the spectacular River Ganges. The hotel can also offer exceptional dining experiences, such as River Boat Dining where the quietness of the river and the sound of temple bells are the soundtrack of your evening. Or a Maharaja Style dining experience at the Chota Angan surrounded by the hotel’s distinctive architectural style. It’s worth noting that due to the hotel's location on the ghats, both meat and alcohol are not permitted in the hotel.

There are a variety of activities on offer for guests at the hotel, including sunrise yoga on the rooftop terrace and live classical music in the atrium.

The hotel has Wi-fi available for guests.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
Bill Bryson

We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
