This guy is quite popular with non-Indians who want to have cheap accommodation for longer period of time such as month or so. Room comes with basic facilities and location views are advantage. They run a small restaurant in property. They do also run some yoga learning center nearby.

Stayed here for 4 nights, but would have walked out on the first day, if we hadn't have already paid online. The room itself is fine for value- you have a balcony with a beautiful view, (though our floor seemed to be under construction at the time.) Also had a good sized room with an ensuite that had hot water.... More

I stayed at the Swiss Cottage in December for 4 nights and I was impressed with location and the feel of the place. It is well away from the hustle of main Rishikesh town. There are tuc tucs at the end of the road that are willing to take you anywhere you wish. The hotel is very quiet and the... More

The perk of this place is that the views from the balconies are great and it is set back from the chaos of Rishikesh. However the food at the restaurant is not brilliant even though it caters for all tastes! It is a long, hot walk to and from Laksham Jhula so if you are planning on being in the... More

The location is off the main Rishikesh Town and yet its conveniently connected through tuk tuk after walking a bit down to the main road. The room itself was located on the terrace living out a lot of open space to look out into the mountains and Ganga. The view was spectacular. It was on 3rd floor with a lot... More

The inner garden makes a great atmosphere and an oportunity to meet others. They also have ropes in front of the rooms if you want to make your own loundry. Remeber high bank is... More
