Overall the hotel is a great value for the money. There are power outages (absolutely random), so just go with the flow. Precooling your room works well. The staff is more than accompdating, bed if comfortable, there is a small frige, a plus. The associated resteurant serves good healthy food both vegetarian and otherwise. I can not comment on nonvegetarian fare. I did like the place enough to stay a second week. Prepare to walk up a bit, its a grand little excersize.

I stayed there for 2 nights. The hotel is located close to Laxman Jhula , on a hillock and the car does not reach till the hotel, Cannot suggest this hotel for the elderly or people with arthritis. There are no other way than to climb up quite a number of steps to your room and if you don't stay in the higher rooms you miss the scenery. The rooms are big but not as clean when you expect western guests to stay there. The very feeble wi-fi never worked more than half hour each day, so the boasting on the site of internet access doesn't really exist as the wi-fi is borrowed from a nearby cyber cafe.The food was good but you need a mobile to call up the restaurant and order food or go down to the restaurant as there is no intercom facility. The hotel could not provide me a proper bill at the time of checking out. The bathroom had a stinky smell and was full of bugs & cockroaches at night. The locale is good and I hope they work on these and make it a better hotel.

Room Tip: the price quoted at the site for this hotel is exaggerating, chose this hotel only if you getter a c...

I stayed here for just day, but i must write this review to appreciate the hospitality of Nishant, the owner & the helpfull , courteous staff.
Very clean,Big,neat rooms with Great scenic View.Superbly clean toilets. I stayed here with my wife , Kid and 4 other friends and had2 of their rooms to ourselves.
I reached here @ 4.00 am in the morning , these guys were very helpfull in terms of guiding us on the way to reach their hotel and also made sure we are comfortable at that hour.
The restaurant here is great, specially the chocolate croissant is a must try.
Would i stay here on my next visit to Rishikesh ? Bad question to ask.
100% yes. this would be my 1st choice.
Highly Recommended

Room Tip: i guess they were 213,212,214

I stayed in Hill Top for a month doing yoga which was held by my teacher and we all stayed and practiced at Hill Top. The room is clean and comfy, some rooms on the top have the amazing panorama view over the Ganga. Hot running water and wifi are available. Friendly and so helpful staff! I had some lovely monkeys visiting me in the morning and probably would like to share fruits if I forget to lock the back door ^^
