Stayed here with friends.. The hotel is located right in the centre of shilling which is a plus point. There are no great views from the rooms, just the busiest Street of shillong. A good option if you like to go out and explore rather than relax in the room with a good view.

A decent budget hotel. There are many hotels in Shillong but very few are a good. This hotel has no view. Rooms are decent and has lots of bamboo and wood based ambiance. Decent staff. Very close to the main market place.

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.

As our plan was to visit Mawlynnong, we decided to hold in Shillong and made a booking in Hotel Rainbow over phone in January,2013. We stayed in the hotel for two nights and had a day trip of Mawlynnong from there only. The location of the hotel is very good being exactly at two minutes walking distance from the Police... More
