The hotel is on the banks of the great Brahmaputra river and one has to stay on this wing to feel and experience the awesome sight early in the morning and late in the evening/early night. Open the window and you will witness a sight to behold! I have stayed in a double room each time : Standard or Superior. During those days, the rates were not much but have gone up since then. Still great value for money.
The hotel is situated on M.G. Road and Fancy Bazaar and Pan Bazaar are both close by. During evening time, a 10 minutes boat ride to the opposite side that houses superb temples is a great experience.
The rooms are splendid and superbly kept. The air conditioning which is so vital in these parts, is very powerful. Room service sets very high standards here. Food in the restaurant on ground floor is delicious especially the buffet breakfast. It's not a closed restaurant and this enables one to see guests passing through the lobby. The bar too is splendid and cozy although a trifle small.
I have been on business trips thrice to this hotel and have experienced nothing but the best of service, excellence in customer relationship displayed by the ever smiling team at the reception. Make a request just once and before you can say " Jack Robinson " the job is done.
The Laundry service too is outstanding and dot on time day in and day out.
The one area that needed an overhaul when I was last here in 2009, are wash rooms on the ground floor which are terribly kept and have poor facilities. And they can also think of a fitness center.
I would advise all visitors to Guwahati to stay here and feel the environment but try to get a room overlooking the great Brahmaputra river.
