The interiors are done with bamboo stalks. The rooms are cosy and spacious. The staff were very courteous. You don't need an AC in Shillong, and the weather is pleasant throughout. The location is okay but it can get a bit noisy in the mornings if you take the rooms on the road-side. The food is decent. The bedding has... More

This hotel is surrounded by many others, but seems slightly more willing to negotiate on the rate. Mind you, you don't need AC in Shillong, which means you should pay much less for a room. And don't order food here - they either don't have what you want or can't understand your order. Otherwise, this is a passable central option... More

Based at the most crowded place of Shillong, Police Bazar. I was given room no 115 initially. No phone in the room. You wont find phone/laptop charging point in proper place. The linen quality and cleanliness is pathetic. For a business trip, just for a night stay sometimes you can ignore this considering the room rent @ 1200 INR all... More

Hotel is at prime location and 2 min walk from main market. That's the only good thing about the hotel. Average service and rooms are little creepy. Slightly overpriced considering the quality of rooms. No standard pricing. They may charge anything as per market conditions.
