Take a top floor apartment for a nice view of the mountains, but you won't see the ganges from here, it's a 30 minute walk away though you can see it shining from nearby. Caveat emperor... the power trips regularly and the bath water when released rushes out of the plug hole and floods the large western style bathroom. I...

Don't waste your money =- go to one of the other lodgings near Nirvanna Cafe. This was well overpriced for what was grubby and not looked after rooms. Although large - the furniture in there was unneccissary and the Air Conditioning had a funky smell. the small balcony overlooked the hillside but there were builders underneath so not exactly serene....

My wife and I stayed here for 4 nights and we enjoyed our stay here. For budget accomodation, it certainly was head above others we've been to before. The staff were helpful and the restaurant just below, was excellent. We dined there just about every night! The location is really great, because you feel secluded from the hustle and bustle...

Located in a small street in Rishikesh , it's away from the noise of the main city and in a secluded area. We got a lovely two bedroom cottage with attached rooms and an outside veranda. One of the best places at this price and even otherwise . Comfortable.

Room was really big and had a balcony overlooking the himalayas so it was really magical, but was a little basic and main shower did not work so had to hold hand held shower...

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...

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...

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....
