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....

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...

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...
