This is a fine property with big size room and all the amenities in place. It's very close to river Ganga, so you can visit the ghats easily and take a dip if you want. The staffs were very polite.

we are using Hotel Ganga for several years for our guests for many years. It's best place to stay in Rishikesh. Hotel services are excellent, staff of hotel is very humble and co-operating. Food is excellent always.

i only stayed one night but service by hotel manager was very good, he helped me with issues not relating to hotel. Large selection of breakfast items available. Quiet location, little away from main noisy centre and only 5-10 minute walk to it.

Very nice, friendly and helpful staff. Good location, not too far from ram jhula, the first bridge. Across the river from Parmath niketan where the most popular aarti happens. The restaurant serves a good breakfast and has a great view of the river. They also have a spa conveniently located at the hotel so that you can get a massage...

Last year I stayed at this hotel and I returned this year with my husband. We had one of the rooms at the front, below the restaurant which had the most incredible view of the Ganga. From most rooms you can see the Ganga, but not full view. The yoga classes in the morning in the shala at the top...

It was a beautiful experience staying here with family. All main attractions in Rishikesh are close by. For ganga ghat, it's just a 5 min walk. Good food, friendly staff and quiet surrounding make this hotel a great place to stay.
