Its a good place for medium budget traveller but not the best. Prose: Far away from hastle and bastle of Risikesh, high up the hill, gives a fine birds eye view of the Ganga which is not really available from proper risikesh. A fine mountain breeze welcomes you morning and evening. Best suited for travellers with there own car. Staffs... More

There's also a... More

Hill top swiss cottage is the best. Tucked away in the hill top neighborhood, it has the best views of the Ganga and the busy town down below, yet has all the amentities and services you need. There is a clean, bright, beautiful yoga hall with amazing classes and workshops, plenty of great restaurants, internet/travel shops, and chill places to... More

Had a great Stay, cheap and very welcoming staff. I was here for 2 months trip and was interested in doing some Yoga ( which btw I am clueless about) but I got a great deal for Yoga plus the place was very social and away from the hub of the city so enjoyed the recluse.

After traveling for two and a half weeks in India, and experiencing all types of hotels and being patient with the lack of cleanliness everywhere, I had a breakdown. If the room had been cleaned, you would never know it. There were splashes in the mirror, stains in the bathtub. Floor was dirty everywhere. The bed, and linens were old,... More

It was a pleasant experience to stay at this place. The location is very nice and enough far away from the heat and hustle of Rishikesh and yet close enough to get to the spots like Luxman Jhula by walk. the manager Nishant was really helpful and kind enough to give us a bigger room than we reserved with the...
