The room kept warm due to tape. Freshly prepared food and drinks. Massage centre nearby - had good rates - my fave was the oil massage with herb powder which rejuvinates and exfoliates. Only advice is to bring a sheet to put on the bed, which is typical for these types of hotels, and bring some toilet paper!

I don't even know where to begin... Hotel manager is the grumpiest person I have ever met, there where constant power cuts, wifi wasn't working, shower was horrible (we rather used bucket), walls were dirty and blankets were stinking. Everything in the room looked old and ugly. However, I am giving a slightly better review because of nice location, cinnamon...

This place is away from the city buzz. We reached here at night so it was a bit difficult to find the location. The small restaurant serves great authentic food. Also Wifi is available. The staff is super friendly. Its best to go as couples of group of friends as the locality is a bit away from town.

A great tourist hang out, just outside of the busier areas of Rishikesh. We had a basic room with attached bath which was perfectly adequate, clean and it was so nice to have space outside to hang out. We had a few altercations with cheeky monkeys trying to get into the bin, but that made it all the more memorable....

This place is such a haven for travellers- it is peaceful and you do not get pestered by locals like in many other touristy areas of India! The rooms are decent sizes and all have a lovely seating area outside- however try to get a higher room to get a better view! The onsite restaurant is open all day and...

The service is friendly and very attentive...The top restaurant offers alcoholic beverages (just to note) and Lodging is fairly priced too. It provides a nice relaxed atmosphere (great for the budget & solo traveler) I highly recommend checking it out!

Fantastic haven! I loved every minute of my week's stay here. I treated myself to one of the deluxe rooms and its well worth it. Spotless rooms with satellite TV A/C and breathtaking views from both windows!!! The vibe here is very communal and the staff and other travellers are friendly making it a wonderful place to make friends. The...

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.

Dear Sir/Mam, Thank you so much for your review.

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....
