“Best guest house ever stayed”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 June 2012

This is one of the best guest House I have ever stayed and its not once that I have stayed but twice in a row. Would recommend to tourist on number 7 from the scale of 1 to 10. Has Wi-Fi, Washing machine, Library and other facilities. Would always stay there when I visit Hrishikesh provided the facility standards and customer service are maintained to the level.

PLAIN AND SIMPLE AVOID....

Let me warn you that this place is only for the expats as the family or the caretakers ..they all seem to be [--] of foreign tourists.
The kind of behaviour I saw was so horrible that I cannot put it down here...

I ignored a review already put up by one of us (Indians) regarding this and I had to pay a price for that.

After making the booking, confirming the booking, making the payments....can you beleive when I reached at the hotel with my family they said that rooms are not available. They provided alternate accomodation in some other hotel which was so badly maintained....When I cancelled my stay and asked for repayments these guys turned violent and I was shocked to see how they behaved.....

Well if you are a foreigner then definitely you are welcome there ...they will do anything to please you...ANYTHING...

Vashishth Guest House is simply put, more than a beautiful, peaceful place to stay. It is a home away from home right near the heart of Rishikesh. The rooms are kept very clean and beautiful, and the family that runs the guest house is very kind and hospitable. It is also very affordable, especially considering what you get, and the expense of other less hospitable places in the area. It was an honor to meet them, and be a guest in their home. I had originally planned to stay a few nights, but ended up extended because I enjoyed this place much more than most of the other hotels and guest houses in the area. Any time I had any difficulties or needed anything, even a taxi, this family was right there helping me. I hope to stay there again very soon. Thank you so much!

By far, the nicest and most charming place where I have stayed in India. Great value for money. Great location, within walking distance to everything. I will definitely stay there next time I am back in Rishikesh. The people working there are extremely friendly. I have really good memories of that place.
