Normal hotel, nothing special about it. Room kinda dirty, cold (many open holes in wall and window) and smely (above restaurant). Good value but i'm sure shillong has better options. We were in a hurry so that was what we got. Check instagram @onetripping

The hotel is located in downtown Shillong. You can find good restaurants, bars, and shops all within a ten minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms are quite nice - the wooden interiors enhancing the ambiance. However, the most important factor that will affect your experience is how much you pay for the rooms. We felt that there wasn't a... More

The hotel is centrally located. Has a good Chinese restaurant next to it. Rooms are clean and hygenic. Well mannered staff. The only reason i am saying overpriced is that the rooms are very small compared to the room fare. For one night they charged me Rs.1650(Charges exclusive). No doubt a good hotel to stay in but again the size... More

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.
