A cosy family run bed & breakfast - 10 min walk from the main Kashi Vishwanath temple & Dashaswamedh Ghat (Ganges).
We are a cosy homestay nestled in the heart of the chaos and divinity of Varanasi - amongst the oldest living cities in the world. The grannies love to look after their guests, feed them well and give them tips to navigate Varanasi. Granny's Inn is a small window to warm Indian hospitality and a soft landing to the holy mess of Banaras! The grannies make delicious home cooked food with the help of their man Friday - Kashi. The inn is being managed & marketed by Cinnamon Stays - the No. 1 bed & breakfast of Gurgaon and amongst the top 25 B&B’s in India (as per Tripadvisor )

At the inn tomorrow, we are having a Kitli Conversations - Varanasi
Kitli ( ketli hind waali) Conversation is a NO-AGENDA meet-up, conceptualised with the aim to foster conversations, giving everyone an opportunity to inspire others through stories.
At Kitli, you exchange stories and ideas, not business cards.
If you wish to attend, please register yourself here:
( although I suspect it's ALL SOLD OUT)
This is an invite-only event, to be attended by not more than 30 attendees at a time. Organised by Shruti Chaturvedi and Artika Shah Shikha Shah Avinav Peshwani Shilpi Singh Manisha Panwar
Last night we introduced you to Niranjan who is the newest entry to the Granny's Inn family. Do read more about him and his cosy homestay (In the cosmopolitan locality of Indiranagar, Bengaluru-now open for bookings) in our new blog post
Welcome Niranjan Acharya to our world. Let's create more magic!
And look who has joined the Granny’s Inn family! It’s Grandpa
'Niranjan Acharya' from Bangalore!
The 71 yr young Niranjan has collaborated with the Grannies and has a beautiful room to share in his cosy and spacious apartment in the bustling area of Indira Nagar, Bengaluru.
An IIM A alumnus, ex-Brooke Bond and HUL marketer, Niranjan loves Indian music, ancient history, archaeology and spending quality time with friends. On being asked why he joined the Grannies, he says - "Since I live alone, I am looking forward to some new and interesting people interaction. Secondly I am keen to support some poor children’s education hoping the net revenue will make that difference."
If you are traveling to Bangalore and need a home, please do try Niranjan’s. He promises you not just comfort but oodles of warmth and his inspiring company that is hard to resist!
We can’t sign off before thanking two people - Reshma Bachwani-Paritosh our dear friend who helped us connect with Niranjan and Niranjan - for believing and trusting in us!
