This is a nice little guest house at the top of quite a big hill in the Swiss cottage area of Rishikesh. We were lucky enough to get a room on the second floor which had the most amazing view of the mountains and the Ganges. The room was quite basic but the shower was good and hot. Considering the...

Considering the price, this is one of the nicest places I've stayed anywhere in the world. First, the location; It's in an area of Rishikesh called High Bank, a secluded little oasis on a hill overlooking the town. It's peaceful and the air is cooler than in the slightly manic town below. High Bank is like a little village, with... More

It is situated slightly beyond New Bhandari Swiss Cottage and has a good view since it is slightly elevated. I took the room on the ground floor which was huge and had a huge balcony looking out onto the forest. The room was reasonably clean and the bathroom also had hand-liquid-soap, bathing liquid soap plus shampoo in various containers fixed... More

If you are looking for a great view, this is the place. Not all the rooms have the great view, so if you try this place try to get the higher rooms. A part from that, all what is written in your booking confirmation is just a "suggestion". We apparently got a more expensive room. It was not clean, the... More

The location of this hotel is a bit far from the "happening area" (this could be seen as positive or negative depending on your preferences...for me as a woman travelling along I felt a bit queasy about returning alone after dark, especially as you have to talk through the dark from the main road for a bit). It was very... More

Beautiful setting high above the Ganges. Large airy rooms with comfortable beds and good showers. Helpful and friendly staff. Good restaurant as well. An absolute steal at the price. Highly recommended. I would stay again the next time I visit Rishikesh.

The spacious apartments were of high standard overall. Clean, facilities good. Very good location. Nice property. Ambiance was excellent. Ample parking space. Food was good and with lot of variety. Would like to stay in this hotel again if I visit Rishikesh again. Lachman Jhula was just 1.5 KM from the hotel. View from the hotel was very good.
