This place is like a beautiful dream

Posted Nov 28, 2016
There is nothing like this hotel, maybe being right on the Ganges gives it a special feeling too -- they actually have their own ghat into the river, and nice balcony areas overlooking. The staff is over 1000% excellent, they are so kind and really look after you. The food there is incredible - being in Haridwar, it is vegetarian of course-- if they opened a franchise of their restaurant in new york or the bay area, people would be lined up, have to make reservations a month ahead. They also had live musicians in the evenings, performing bhajans. The hotel and the rooms are really beautiful, it is a stately old building-- a kind of palace. Very comfortable rooms. They have a spa and all sorts of massage, meditation, yoga and ayurvedic kinds of things available for very reasonable. The location is also excellent-- very near har ki pauri ghat, where they do a beautiful Ganga Aarti ceremony, and mansa devi temple, a thriving walkable market area just outside. We were quite sad to leave. One could easily spend at least a week here and rejuvenate, relax and recharge. Hope to come back here some day, it was truly lovely.

Very pleasant hotel by the Ganga river

Posted Nov 24, 2016
Cons: It felt a bit damp in the evening at this time of the year(Nov)
The best part of the hotel is its location right on the river Ganga, There is a wonderful patio overlooking the river, with tables and chairs to relax. We visited in November; the afternoon sun in very pleasant at this time on the patio. The breakfast/lunch/dinners are very nice. They are Indian vegetarian and cooked very well, and not spicy. The staff were very nice and responsive to requests. The main Har ka Pauri temple in Haridwar is a 10 min walk from the hotel.

Beautiful hidden gem in the middle of a busy area.

The hotel is impeccably maintained, and it offers many complimentary services that really enhance ones experience of the hotel and culture of the area. The hotel felt more like home, the staff was nice, helpful and responsive. The architectural detail is beautiful, it felt like we were in a different time period. The complimentary breakfast was excellent and the food in general was delicious. The morning fire ceremony was very special and it made the start of the day spiritual and in line with the spirit of Haridwar. The kirtan at night was beautiful and it was a nice way to end the day. We attended the local Arti ceremony guided by the hotel staff who provided us with vip access. The staff even negotiated the best price for a rickshaw to Rishikesh and went with us to purchase tickets for the temple of consciousness and advised us on what to expect and what to do. They even went shopping with us. The room was beautiful and comfortable. I didn't want to leave.

Exzellenter Service und super Lage

Posted Jun 1, 2016
Pros: Die Lage am Ganges und der Service.
Location: Lage direkt am Ganges, im Basarviertel.
Der Service in diesem Hotel hat uns begeistert. Beispiele: Kostenlose Führung zur abendlichen Zeremonie am Ganges, Begleitung zum nächstgelegenen ATM, schönes Aufenthaltszimmer am Ganges nach dem Check-Out, kostenloser Transfer zum Bahnhof. Die Lage des Hotels und die Atmosphäre im Hotel haben uns ebenfalls begeistert.

駅から徒歩約30分位、バザールの中にあります。看板は出ていないので、初めて行く方はわかりづらいと思います。 到着時、ウェルカムドリンク&トゥルシーマーラー(数珠)をいただきました。 無料アクティビティ(イブニングティ、アルティへのエスコート、占星術、楽器演奏、ホテル内ガートでのアルティ)があり、ほとんど参加しました。特に、アルティのエスコートがよかったです。ガイドさんのおかげで特等席で見ることができました。 食事は朝食のみ利用しました。色々な種類を食べることができ、ドーサを作ってくれました。 一つ残念だったのは、ホットシャワーが出なかったことです。 値段は高いですが、ハリキパイリーにも近く、スタッフの感じもよく、また機会があれば利用したいです。

This is a great place to stay in the area! The rooms are decent. With the exception of one front desk staff, the staff is pleasant and friendly. Would consider staying here next time.

very nice hotel on the banks of Ganges

Posted Nov 1, 2015
Excellent Location, Right on Ganges river, very cordial, helping staff, phenomenal healthy vegetarian food for both Brkfst & Dinner. Only downside is that cars are not allowed near the hotel They will give you a 10 min man pulled f Rikshaw ride from Parking lot to the hotel. Traditionally decorated eclectic rooms quite comfortable. Overall very happy with our stay.in late October 2015 RamC

Pleasant stay

Room was very neat. Hotel staff very friendly. However the hotel is not accessible by car and we had to walk for about 500m with our luggage on a very busy road before finding the place.
