Hotel The Great Ganga is situated at one of the best areas in and around Rishikesh, at Muni-ki-Reti, the place where the holy Ganges meanders out of the hills and enters the plains. The Hotel is designed in such a manner that one can enjoy the enchanting panoramic view of the Holy Ganges, surrounded by the lush Green serene hills from each room. It takes just 5 minutes casual walk to reach the banks of Holy Ganges from the Hotel. All rooms are equipped with air-conditioners heaters and have private balconies from where one can enjoy the fabulous view of the river Ganges, the Chandrabhaga river and Rishikesh town.

We had booked a delux room for 2 nights and had a lovely experience staying at hotel great ganga. All of the staff was very nice and accommodating.The food was great and came out quick! The rooms were clean and have nice view of river ganga. If you want to have complete view of river book the premium rooms they have amazing view and the sound of the water at night was amazing. The hotel is on some height so you have to walk a little but if you any vehicle with you then it will be no issue. As two women travelers, we felt completely safe and enjoyed our time there. I want to thank manager Gautam and his team for all the attention they put toward their customers. You can ask for anything from a raincoat to a car and they will arrange it for you that too without any extra charges. The property is well maintained and welcoming.

Location - 4/5 Food - 5/5 Room - 4/5 Staff - 5/5 Spa - 5/5 The only problem is that the hotel is on a small hill and there is a steep curve. I am not used to driving on hills so I got stuck in the middle and had to call the hotel staff to take my car to the hotel reception. If you do not have your own vehicle or you do not want to take it out..climbing up and down the hill is a pain..specially if you have children or elders with you. Hotel does not run any ferry service for this you have to manage on your own. Also, they do not serve any food after 9:30 PM in any case. We got late for dinner due to huge traffic but did not get anything to eat..some how managed a zomato delivery at midnight.

My friend/colleague and I had two deluxe rooms at the Great Ganga for 2 nights and felt completely cared for. Gautam, the manager, was extremely helpful and accommodated our needs. All of the staff was very nice. The food was great and came out quick! The rooms were clean and we had great views of the Ganges from our balcony which was a refreshing break from city life and being stuck indoors. As two women travelers, we felt safe and enjoyed our time there. I want to thank Gautam and his team for all the attention they put toward their customers and maintaining the property. We hope to be back!
