In November last year I booked a Double Deluxe room with the manager via email and ask for an arrangement of a taxi from New Delhi to Rishikesh. I sent a screenshot of the room which I favoured. This was confirmed by the manager; furthermore the manager offered me a taxi ride for 500 Rupees. I thought wow what a... More

I stayed at the Swiss Cottage in December for 4 nights and I was impressed with location and the feel of the place. It is well away from the hustle of main Rishikesh town. There are tuc tucs at the end of the road that are willing to take you anywhere you wish. The hotel is very quiet and the... More

We stayed for 8 Nights at first floor (maybe room 312) for 400 rp pr night. Fine standard room for the prize. Nice german Bakery with friendly staff. Restaurant is okay, but there a some better in the High bank-area (nirvana and the garden-place). Wifi is a bit unstaible and best outside the rooms , but it was not really... More

Stayed for a week or so in Apr '15. Paid 300 roops a night,decent room with fan but no AC. There's pricier rooms with all mod cons if that's what you like. It's over the river and bit of a hike from the main scene on Laxmanjhula Rd but it's up on the hillside with stunning views over Rishikesh and... More

The perk of this place is that the views from the balconies are great and it is set back from the chaos of Rishikesh. However the food at the restaurant is not brilliant even though it caters for all tastes! It is a long, hot walk to and from Laksham Jhula so if you are planning on being in the... More

The location is off the main Rishikesh Town and yet its conveniently connected through tuk tuk after walking a bit down to the main road. The room itself was located on the terrace living out a lot of open space to look out into the mountains and Ganga. The view was spectacular. It was on 3rd floor with a lot... More

If you are looking for low budget rooms at high bank I will suggest his place. The rooms were cheap, the place has a nice restaurant. The inner garden makes a great atmosphere and an oportunity to meet others. They also have ropes in front of the rooms if you want to make your own loundry. Remeber high bank is... More

Spent two nights here. Some of the rooms are much cleaner and better appointed than others. Personally I think Hill Top Swiss Cottage just up the path is far superior. Staff were friendly but not particularly helpful. The restaurant was the best part of my stay.

Bargain budget , clean and comfortable . Near to the better Rishikesh cafes , yoga, massage etc. Go for deluxe rooms as they have more space, good air con and large shower bathroom. Upstairs have lovely views. Nice and quiet chilled out place.
