My favourite place to stay in Rishikesh. I have been staying at Hill Top for many years and it feels like home. I love waking up and having tea on my balcony surrounded by trees. The roof top area has an amazing view of Rishikesh and the the mountains! The atmosphere is friendly and easy going and staff are always... More

Hill Top is one of a cluster of similar hotels on High Bank, an area we'd really recommend in Rishikesh - walking distance to the main traveller drag, but secluded and chilled. Hill Top has super friendly staff and an excellent restaurant. Rooms are basic but clean - the staff happily obliged when we asked for extra bedding and helped... More

I stayed here for one night, it was organised through an agency so I was not sure what to expect but was extremely impressed. It is a little hard to find as it is at the top of the hill, up a little road after a few other guest houses but it is worth the little steep walk I promise.... More

Had a great experience at the Hill Top Swiss Cottage, Rishikesh. We were on the top floor and the view was awesome. Stuff was friendly. If you like calm and quite place to stay this is best in Rishikesh.

My wife and I stayed here for 3 nights. The management was friendly and attentive. There is an in-house yoga instructor (sessions not included in hotel price) who gives classes in morning and evening. We took one class and enjoyed it quite a bit. The hotel is simple, but nice and relaxed, with some nice views from upper floors. But... More

We paid an unplanned visit to Rishikesh and had no advance booking. We went straight to this place and the owner obliged us by providing the same room in which we had stayed last year. It was a DejaVu experience. The stay was comfortable and the best thing about this place is the location. A calm and serene place to... More

Had a great experience at the Hill top Swiss Cottage. The manager / owner was friendly and helpful. The room itself was fairly basic but the location was quiet, away from the noise of the town. There is everything you might need in the small area including restaurants, small shops, yoga and travel agents. We had an entirely positive experience... More

Great budget guesthouse with friendly staff and positive outlook. It's up the hill, so you get a bit of work out too as you go to the room. Views from the highest rooms are great. Manu's yoga class in the morning was brilliant and well worth getting up early for. Good vibrations hang in the air over the hill....
