I traveled solo and stayed for 8 nights. The only time I had an upset stomach was when I did NOT eat at the hotel, the food is delicious and the service is super fast. True, there are a few steps down to the river, but most of us need the exercise these days. If you cross the street and walk about 20 meters to the right you will find a rocky driveway that leads directly to the ghats (steps to along the Ganges) and this will keep you out of the traffic. From here you can walk across the suspension bridge without needing any other transportation. The room was very clean, the bed was huge and more comfortable than my own. Every evening I could hear the Aarti chants from the Parmath Ashram across the river. The front desk can organize excursions around the area for you. The only regret I have is that I did not get the names and took a picture of the two fine young gentlemen that run the front desk. I was sad when my time in Rishikesh was over!
