My husband and I recently spent a total of 11 days at this hotel between January and Feb. The hotel is very clean, and staff friendly. The breakfast buffet was excellent. I enjoyed having my coffee on the patio overlooking the Ganges River. We plan to return again next year!

Great hotel and excellent staff. The staff were very friendly, helpful and accommodating everyway. The vegetarian food was excellent in the evening and the breakfast was also very good. The rooms were also good. Everything was positive about Ganga Kinera. I will definitely go again.

We spent three nights at Ganga Kinare. The best thing about it was the location, away from the busy town centre. We had a room with a beautiful view of the river and national park. The front of house staff are very welcoming and helpful with information and organising transport and tours. The room was comfortable but showing it's age...

Staying in Rishikesh at the Ganga Kinare was one of the highlights of my trip to India. The setting is gorgeous. The staff are unbelievably helpful and friendly. Especially nice was the group outing to the beautiful nightly Ganga Aarta ceremony on the Ganges at Triveni Ghat. I hate to leave!

The welcome at the front desk was warm, friendly and helpful. Our expectations were made high by the description "boutique" and glowing reports. The restaurant was more like a cafeteria and our first waiter took great delight in telling us that they didn't have any of the drinks on the menu we chose. Breakfast was ok but uninspiring. Our bedroom...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled snugly on the banks of a tranquil River Ganges, Ganga Kinare - A Riverside Boutique Hotel is a charming retreat in the sanctum of Rishikesh, a land where spirituality and Mother Nature blend into a heady concoction. The only hotel resort in Rishikesh built right on the banks of the Ganges, Ganga Kinare overlooks the Rajaji National Park, one of North India's expansive sanctuaries and a melting pot of diverse flora and fauna. The resort boasts of a waterside esplanade beside the sinuous river, where one can soak in the sight of the mountains and revel in the sheer verdancy of it all. The resort houses 38 contemporary river facing rooms, each subtly touched with a flavour of tradition and local culture. Every room of the hotel presents an enthralling view of the interplay between the woods, the great Ganges and the Shivalik hills in the background. In addition, a modernistic conference hall can host up to 120 delegates. The resort can enhance an overall experience through enticing activities including safaris, white water rafting, camping, trekking, biking, nature walks, bird watching, boating, sky gazing, yoga and meditation, and Ayurvedic spa treatments. The hotel has hosted the International Yoga week on many an occasion and its guest list includes dignitaries like Mr Anil Kapoor (famoun Bollywood and Holywood Actor), Ms Lisa Ray (famous model and actor), Mr Rahul Gandhi (Gen Secy, Indian National Congress), Mr Lal Krishna Advani (ex-Home Minister and Deputy Prime Minster), Padam Shri BKS Iyengar, Mr. Moti Lal Vora (ex- Governor U.P.), Mr Ramanand Sagar (producer and director, Ramayana - a renowned television serial), Mr Ghulam Nabi Azad (ex-Tourism Minister, Govt of India), Dr. Karan Singh (ex-Union Cabinet Minister), Mrs Hema Malini (renowned film actress), Ms Yukta Mookhey (ex-Miss World), Pandit Jasraj (renowned Indian classical musician) among international heads of states, ambassadors, artists, celebrities, religious leaders and other VIPs. ... more   less
