Simple but extremely friendly and considering ... The Golden Buddha is a clean simple Hotel! The rooms are simple but tastefully decorated, the staff is extremely friendly. Enjoy the breakfast on the - very well kept - lawn.

Description - Hotel

The Golden Buddha is a family runed property that is located inthe pollution free enviroment of Sarnath. It is here where Lord Buddha preached his first sermon. Therefore there are many Buddhist monastries, monastic ruins, Stupas and a national museum

We also have an authentic Indian restaurant that walks out into the well manicured gardens. We also have outdoor BBQs.

The hotel is just walking distance from all the main monastries in Sarnath and is only 5 kms from the ghats and main markets of Varanasi
