I can't recommend this homestay highly enough. It's in a very quiet, tranquil location that feels far away from the traffic chaos of downtown Guwahati and is super-comfortable. The bedrooms and bathrooms are spacious and beautifully maintained. The staff are friendly and efficient, ever-smiling, and the food served for dinner is delicious and plentiful. The stars of the show, however, are the owners, Mr and Mrs Bora. They couldn't be more hospitable and friendly, and Mrs Bora in particular is a fount of information and advice about Assam and NE India in general. I stayed for two nights, can't wait to go back, and feel I now have friends in Guwahati.
