We stayed at Bhandari Swiss cottages for 4 nights. The rooms are clean, quite spacious, and pleasant. Although they range in price from 200 - 1000 rupees, there is not a huge difference between these rooms. What really makes this place special though, is the amazingly friendly staff, who are always there to help and have a great attitude!
Also Bhandari is a little bit away from the hustle and bustle of Rishikesh proper, which makes it seem like a refuge.
The food in the cafe is also quite good - I would recommend the breakfast selection and the pizzas. Pastas could be better.

The massage parlor next to the hotel - Divine Spa - is an added bonus! Though a little bit more expensive than other massage parlors, I had an excellent Ayurvedic massage with reflexology... well worth the 400 rupees I spent!

All in all, a fantastic experience - I wouldn't stay anywhere else in Rishikesh!

This place it a little further away from the city center, but I enjoyed it very much. Extremely inexpensive, great cafe and fantastic place to meet people. Rooms and simple, but good for India.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 June 2008

We stayed here for a bit over a week at the start of June. Rishikesk is divided into 3 areas - Swarg Ashram - for the evening aarti, Laksman Jhula - great bookshops and a huge temple. Then high bank, a small enclave of hptels and restaurants catering to western travellers.

I gather that this place gets busy and packed during high season, but we were there out of season and had no trouble getting a room. We paid 750 for an aircom room, with a comfy bed and a good shower. I think non-aircon was 300 to 500 though.

The room was clean and we had a great time meeting other travellers and swapping tales.

This hotel is the closest to the road in the enclave, which makes it easiest to get your heavy packs up to, but it also perhaps the noisiest.

  • Liked — The views - make sure you go to the top of the roof for the photo op.
