I have never bothered to write reviews of hotels I have stayed in. However I had a very irritating experience this evening while trying to book a room here at Aizawl and hence Ive decided to pen a few lines about the ones I've stayed in. I stayed at Pragati Manor twice ,once in 2012 and the latter in mid 2013. Both times my flight was canceled and had to find accommodation and you can imagine I wasnt in a very good mood uopn reaching the hotel. To my surprise all my anger disappeared once I faced the very polite and courteous receptionists. I took the only available room at the time ( I dont remember what kind of room it was but I paid Rs 3500+ for it excluding food). The room was good and had a large bed with very clean sheets, something many hotels in this part of India neglect on a grand scale. The TV couldve been better and the bathroom was uninviting, if you know what I mean. Room service however was out of this world. It was fast and the food was great. The choice of breakfast was limited but good nonetheless. My biggest disappointment was the cooling system - Guwahati during summer is really hot and with the prices I paid I was expecting a decent A/C but a cooler was installed. Parking is another hassle as negotiaitng the spaces between the pillars at the ground level is a job in itself. All in all slightly overpriced considering that there was no A/C in the room.
