“Good but noisy hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

Very good hotel, very well behaved staff, great restaurant and very conveniently located in the center of Shillong.
However, the breakfast is very average and the acoustics in the hotel is very very bad - so if you want to catch a good nights sleep then the hotel is not at all appropriate since all the noise from the road and the restaurant/bar is enough to keep you awake the full night

“Greetings from Hotel Centre Point”

Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Centre Point as the name suggests is located in the Heart of Shillong in Khydailad (Police bazar) . With all the advantages of being located in the main business and shopping district of the City such as being within walking distance comes the relative concern of traffic and crowds synonymous with such locations the world over.

On the contrary, we are deeply sorry about the acoustics from the Lounge Bar. If you have checked in on the 14th Feb, than there was a Valentine's Special Event at Cloud 9. In future we shall definitely keep in mind to keep such events in control and avoid inconvenience caused to the guest.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013

The hotel, as the name suggests, is centrally located between a crowded shopping pedestrian lane and the main GS road at the Police Bazaar. Has decent quality rooms with amenities (toiletries, tea/coffee maker, LCD, closets etc), however, no real view except the buildings around. It has a reasonably good restaurant and the complimentary breakfast (eggs, cereals, juices, sausages, indian breads-parantha/puris) was adequate. Given the limited options for a decent family hotel in Shillong this would rate as one of the best.
The location is good for a quick getaway for sightseeing and plenty of restaurants close-by to eat out in. The only downside was traffic and noise from the road. There is a popular discotheque on the top floor which on weekends can be loud! Try out the restaurants in the market area and even the street food from the stalls if you are brave.
Recommended.

Room Tip: Aim for the rooms away from the main road and avoid the 4th floor if you like a bit of quiet.

Dear Guest,

“Greetings from Hotel Centre Point”

Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Centre Point as the name suggests is located in the Heart of Shillong in Khydailad (Police bazar) . With all the advantages of being located in the main business and shopping district of the City such as being within walking distance of shops, malls , restaurants, bars and cafes comes the relative concern of traffic and crowds synonymous with such locations the world over.

The true Shillong experience in our minds is to experience the vibrancy of our Hill City by staying with us at Centre Point and then enjoy the natural surroundings by embarking on day trips to various nature locales such as Cherrapunjee, Laitkynsiew village, Mawphlang (sacred forest) , Umiam lake and lunch at Ri Kynjai (our sister property , Mawlynong village etc.

After a visit to the various nature locales, evenings amongst a host of options available at Khyndailad could be spent by dining at our popular Multi Cuisine Restaurant , La Galerie or at our rooftop pan asian restaurant Skye Asia which overlooks the city and the nearby Shillong peak range or visiting our longe bar, Cloud Nine ( The first Resto - lounge in the North East ).

We look forward to your next visit and will be happy to plan and organise your sightseeing trips to the various nature locales surrounding Shillong.

We spent one night here while travelling around India. The rooms were clean and the bathrooms honestly had the most hot water that we had while travelling around India. For whatever reason hot water was an issue in most hotels. I finally enjoyed a long hot shower while here. The location was great as you can walk out the door and be at a market outside. We were there on a Sunday so the Big brand name stores were closed, but that was fine. I wasn't interested in brand names I can get back in Canada. I didn't buy a lot at the market as we had been in India for a while at that point, but people were nice, not pushy.
The staff were good during check in and check out. Our view from our room was good. We wanted to order Dominos for supper and I asked the front desk staff if they would order it for me and he was more then happy to do that and arrange for it to be brought to our room. The food at the hotel was good as well. Breakfast had made to order eggs in the buffet which was nice.
Internet was only in the lobby as far as I know, which was fine. The hotel arranged for a place for our driver to stay as well close by.
Would stay there again if I was in the area.

The hotel is centrally located and serves its name but that can also be a reason for very bad sleep quality. With all the noise in teh street below, it is almost impossible to have a good night sleep. The 5th floor has its bar and disc and hence if you have your room on the fourth floor, you can kiss your early sleep goodbye!
The staff are very helpful and pleasant and would not mind running an extra errand for you. This place is only good if you have it as a base to drop down at the end of a day.

Room Tip: Higher floors have more noise from the disc on the 5th floor.
