We stayed for 3 days in this hotel with our entire team. Rooms are comfortable, staff is friendly and helping. Location is also ok. you can walk to police bazar from back street of the hotel. Food quality is just ok. its better if you try dining out on other food joints.

I am surprised by the recent reviews, some of which are less than flattering, because I found the hotel pleasant and good value. The reception desk was quick and helpful, the rooms were well appointed and tidy and the dining options were good. There was an Irish pub, an Italian restaurant and a café that had a varied menu for... More

Stayed here for a couple of nights in Feb 2015. The hotel is nicely located, the rooms are clean and service is good. The room I stayed in had a room heater which helped beat the chill. Buffet spread during breakfast was elaborate and tasty. However comparing Polo Towers with other similar hotels in other cities one feels that the... More

in contrast to polo orchid in cherrapunjee, Polo towers Shillong is a good place to stay. centrally located and a lot cleaner. the entrance lobby is well decorated and there is a patisserie in the lobby itself. the breakfast spread is good though they are not equipped to handle when a lot of people come for breakfast around 9.00-9.30. gets...

There’s not much choice in Shillong when you are in a group, so Polo Towers was the only hotel that could accommodate a group of our size. The hotel is situated on a small hill which offers a neat little view of a neat little town – a lively market scene on one side, and the municipal garbage dump (i.e.... More

The worst part of the stay in hotel polo towers is that i had to call up reception every time i needed hot running water in the bathroom, wifi was so weak, the room was so small though it was an executive room and the food was not at all tasty..........

I spent a night at the Hotel Polo Towers on a business trip. I must rave about the staff - they were helpful, accommodating, friendly and very top notch. The rooms are very basic. The hotel reservations system did not record a request for a queen size bed, and my colleague thus received a room with two twin beds. Be... More

A very decent 3 Star hotel in Shillong. Felt a bit pricey around 5K per day staying during Xmas 23rd to 27 Dec 2014. But all good rooms with decent furnishings and clean surroundings. Modern furniture, fittings and fixtures gives you good feeling. We traveled as newly wed couples and found the hotel staff helpful. Also there are three restaurants,... More
