A wonderful choice for Rishikesh. Very near the path along the Ganges River, so location is good. Even better is the staff and restaurant. Anuj and ALL STAFF were truly amazing and helpful, the food was authentic temple food, and the hotel was able to easily arrange transportation and tours, which was wonderful. Highly recommend, and we have already booked another night there when we are planning to return.

Hotel's Favourite
Hotel Holywater, Rishikesh is a sister property of Hotel Ganga Kinare. A small hotel but comfortable. The staff is very respectful, courteous and helpful. The room was comfortable with basic amenities and AC, It is situated 100 meters from its sister Hotel Ganga Kinare which is situated on the banks of River Ganga. One gets many complimentary services of the Hotel Ganga Kinare while staying in Hotel Holywater like access to the private Ganga Ghat, morning and evening Aarti, bicycles and few more. The food served at Holywater is totally vegetarian and very different, delicious. The Head Chef is quite understanding and helpful, takes care of your requirements. Their thali is a must have. A must visit for a religious and serene environment. You won't regret avisit to this holy place

Can’t describe how good our experience, albeit brief, at Holywater by Ganga Kinare was. Right from the check-in to check-out & everything in between, it was flawless. The hotel is a budget offering from the Hotel Ganga Kinare which is just 200 metres away. Hotel Ganga Kinare has a private ghat where they conduct Ganga aarti in the morning & in the evening. Holywater guests can access it. Holywater is a little far away from the hustle & bustle of crowded areas like Tapovan, Laxman jhula & Ram jhula areas. The breakfast at the restaurant was fantastic. Everything was made fresh & not like regular buffets where everything is prepared hours in advance. Would highly recommend this place.

The rooms were clean, spacious and had all the amenities to make a comfortable stay. The staff is polite, hospitable, helpful and ensure that the guests have a comfortable and joyous time at the hotel. The restaurant serves a variety of delicious food. Adequate parking facility is also available. The access to facilities at 'Ganga Kinare' is an added advantage which includes cycling, yoga sessions, private aarti, gaming zone etc. Overall, an excellent property!
