I think that there have been 1 or 2 trolls running this establishment down, never trust a reviewer with only 1 bad review to his/her name. Too obvious! This Hotel is a great mid-range hotel with lovely views of the Ganges river, very close to the Laxman Jhula bridge and management that go out of their way to be kind... More

Dont go by the name of Ganeha. This hotel is in the holy city of Rishikesh but encourages wrong things. This is not at all a decent hotel for Ladies and Families. Though Alcohol is banned in Rishikesh. Their restaurant openly permits hard drinks alcohol and if you object, you will be asked to chcek out of the hotel at... More

The room we were in had a great view of the Ganga, but anything else was really bad. The bathroom was REALLY smelly, food was inedible, service was poor and quite chaotic - They don't really communicate with each other. Nights are very noisy; something like a washing machine goes on the whole night.

First thing first- We couldn't taste the great food most of people have liked, as main cook was on leave. Say it advantage or disadvantage- have rated it "very good" in anticipation of great food (which is a tough to find at this town) based on other's ratings. Otherwise to us it looked a little above average, for the price... More

I have stayed in Hotel Ganesha Inn in Rishikesh for a total of four nights in two months. It's wonderfully located, away from the hustle and bustle of the town. Laxman Jhoola is within walking distance. Ram Jhoola, if you are big walker. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Just try to book early and make sure you get... More

I found hotel is slighty overrated, but overall experience is good. I stayed there for one night during my recent visit to Rishikesh, Food was great... rooms were smaller but well maintained. Staff was good. Hotel in crowdy place which i doesnt like but view was great as well as Wifi speed was good enough.

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel for about 2 days while returning from a rather tiring trek and the experience was very pleasant. The staff was very helpful and the room was spacious and clean. Manish, who I assume is the manager, was specifically very helpful and even found me a yoga teacher on 10 minutes notice! The... More
