Taj at its best! Every property of Taj is well kept and the staff is trained to provide best possible services to the guests. The restaurant’s provide authentic food, though the live music is bit loud for my liking the taste of food gives enough joy to ignore the noisy music. I will stay at this hotel on my every trip to Varanasi.
