Great little budget hotel. Very simple rooms with hot showers. The hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of the town, so it's perfectly situated and only a 10 minute walk from the shores of the Ganga. We stayed 4 nights and it was satisfactory. Good view, fresh towels on request and extra blankets if needed, like we... More

We had a room on the first floor, and paid 450 rupees per night per person for the room, which was quite clean compared to the cheapest ones. Basically the higher the floor the higher the price of the room. Amazing view from the balconies and the roof. Good location, a little isolated from the city but surrounded with great... More

We stayed in three different rooms, each for different price and of different quality. The higher the floor, the more expensive is the room. View from the top floors is amazing – on Ganga river and mountains. We had very cheap room – 300 rupees per night per two people, but it was dirty, cold at night and will, occasionally,... More

If you are staying in Riskikesh you have to stay here.. It is perfect! Nice big clean rooms, even with a fan it was nice and cool even in day time. We got a room on the bottom floor which had its own little garden terrace area which was perfect for chilling in on a night. The German Bakery on... More

This place became our home for seven nights. It was such a pleasant stay. The restaurant is awesome! Try the gnocchi... We stayed in one of the cheaper rooms and it is basic. The bathroom could be more inviting. But what really makes the stay memorable are the terraces! We rarely spent any time in the room since we kind... More

We arrived late in the evening and were exhausted from two days of a bus, two trains, and vikram ride. We didn't have a reservation, so we went to the front desk, but found it locked. Guests who were sitting outside watching the Diwali fireworks being let off in the courtyard said "They're not here. They are probably drunk". So... More

We took the Delux room on the top floor on october 2014, payed 1500 rupee. The view is amazing, you can see 180 degrees of the mountain and Ganga directly from the room. The room was very nice with sofas and a small balcony - Though could have been cleaner - The bed sheets weren't the cleanest, as were the... More

Our room on the top floor was one of the best we had in 2 months in India. The room was quite large with a nicely tiled bathroom with a squeegie to keep it clean and dry. Although the electricity in Rishikesh is sketchy, at best, the room had both a ceiling fan and AC (and windows that open for... More

This guesthouse actually seems really great in every way - however, we just didn't get the best room. It was on the first floor and the pathway was outside our window. There are many rooms on the second floor and that face away from the pathway, which would have been much better. For a few days there was not such... More
