Cottage Maybe, Swiss Not, But A Decent Hotel Value Hilltop Swiss Cottage sits in its own small self-contained village atop the hills of the High Bank of Rishikesh’s Tapovan area and a little over 1 kilometer from Laxman (Lacksman) Jhula (bridge), the northern most bridge over the Ganges (Ganga) River in town. The “Swiss Cottage” area has seven or eight... More

It's a beautiful cosy little place to stay. Excellent views of the Ganga river and the hills around. The rooms are clean and spacious. The staff is caring and would go out of the way to make sure the guests are well looked after. The best part it is away from the hustle bustle and still very accessible. The owner... More

What a great place to land for my first night in India, after a long journey! They arranged timely airport pick-up at Dehra Dun airport, met my taxi at the hotel with a smile, helped me with my luggage, and generally just made it easy to arrive and settle in. It was nice to have money changing, several restaurants, little... More

The USP for this place is its great location. It lies on top of a hill beside the road to Laxman Jhula. In fact, if you are fit, you can easily walk down to Laxman Jhula from here, will take around 15-20 minutes. The place is ideal for people who do not like to live in the hustle and bustle... More

This place is located in a nice area, like a tiny village outside the city noise. It seems far but nothing that 30rupees in a shared auto or a 14-minute walk can't solve. Rooms are comfortable and fresh. Some extra payment for an upper room is worth it. The managers were very nice with me, that got sick the last... More
