i went ot this place and had booked two rooms online . The rooms we were given were in a pretty bad shape and the toilets were stinking and very dirty. We asked for an upgraded room which was given to us in the new building. These rooms were far better and were clean. The food here is very lousy... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and paid next to nothing for a perfectly adequate room. The cafe downstairs is great for breakfast and snacks and the best restaurants are not even a minute walk away. We booked all our rafting, moped rental and bungee jump through their tour company and have no complaints at all. Would definitely recommend to... More

We stayed here for a week in a non ac room had a great time. The room was a steal at 400 rupees, and we couldnt believe how small our bill was at check out. The staff are helpful and helped us organise a number of activities like rafting, bungee jumping, yoga etc. all of which were a huge success.... More

Good service (a little slow but only because of power cuts!) Friendly people. Good menu. Delicious steamed vegetable momos. Love the 'protein smoothie' with soy milk, dates, peanut butter and banana. Clean rooms. The air conditioning is really good and cold if you get an air conditioned room. Accommodation prices are reasonable. Nice location a little up the hill from... More

For us ideally located in a quiet area uphill but only a short stroll from the busy Rishikesh centre. Booked in on spec for two nights. We paid extra for the top floor suite (which was isolated on its own on that floor) but worth it for the privacy and view. The ensuite room was clean, huge and well furnished,... More

This nice hotel and garden restaurant is a good choice. The location is excellent on high bank, nice and peaceful with great views over the mountains. A pleasant place and area to stay whilst in Rishikesh. A plus is that the owner and staff are good and trustworthy.

Had a great stay here. The location is a bit out of the center, making it very quiet. The views are great, even if you are on the lower floors. When we came we got a more expensive, bad room. It was not clean and the bed was horrible. The next day we moved to a much better but cheaper... More

This hotel is situated in a charming area a little bit outside the main tourist centre of Rishikesh (5-10 minutes walk). For India, this place is sooo quiet ! We were relieved and stayed a little bit longer than foreseen. Rooms are very different, from the budget one to the more modern and recent on the upper floor. The view... More

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
