“Arunachal pradesh”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

After a long journey by train from Kolkata, the hotel and it's accommodation was very welcoming as per the room is concerned. The location is very good for the local sight seen as it is very centrally located.

But on the other hand, the staff were very indifferent. Moreover their approach in dealing with the guest is not at all in rating. Kick starting the trip with such an experience was something that we expected for the entire trip, but Arunachal was good.

I was traveling with my friends on a shoe string budget and we needed a place to stay in Guwahati before we were headed for Arunachal. The hotel was a stones throw from the railway station and bus station which was a huge plus for us. The hotel staff was not super-friendly but they were hospitable enough to hear our requests, like we needed an extra bed, some clean sheets, food served in our room and they gave us an AC room because non AC room got congested with an extra bed. They would cater to our needs at once but the room service guys would knock and enter the room which I found a little bothersome.
And yes the rooms did smell a musty and thanks to all previous reviewers me and my friends carried extra bed sheets.

Room Tip: Carry a couple of bed-sheets to use instead of the hotels and you will get rid of the musty odor.

I stayed one night in Siroy. The room was fine but the staff were indifferent. It was only when paying for my room did I realize that the advertised prices were very misleading. I had failed to notice the added extras like the the tax and I queried the compulsory 'service' charge. Having not used room service I wanted to know what service I was paying for; apparently it was for room cleaning! I had a few hundred added to my bill which is not the end of the world but does highlight their approach to their customers.
The 'free' breakfast isn't worth having.

We had booked two rooms for a night’s stay on 25 Nov 2012 in Hotel Siroy Lily, Guwahati.

Our party consisted of Four Senior citizens. Upon arrival (at abt 2200 Hrs), we were promptly informed that since we had arrived on 26 Nov (instead of 25th), our earlier reservation was null & void. This was due to a sudden re-scheduling of our programme. We had no means to contact you since it was beyond yr working hrs. Anyway, we accepted to pay (as we had elderly ladies with us & it was late night). Later, at check out, early next morning, no discount was offered even though the rooms had remained unoccupied.
The location was most undesirable. One look out of the window & it was like being in the middle of a dirty sl
The rooms offered to us were of abysmal standards – not fit even as a cowshed. The room had an unpleasant odour. The bed linen was torn, had stains & was extremely dirty. The AC did not work. When we tried to use the ceiling fan, we found that there was no knob – only a shaft which could not be turned by hand.

We naturally complained and a staff replaced the linen with a passably clean one. The AC could not be fixed. Fan? “Saab, yeh to aisa he hain – was the response”. Finally, the room was changed.

We ordered some ice. The first reaction? “sir, this will be charged”. A little taken aback, we agreed to pay. After some 30 minutes and plenty of reminders, the ice arrived in a dirty pail. We were so exhausted from our journey and the general standards that we decided not to make an issue of it. But horror of horrors – the ice contained a COCKROACH! Their reaction - "Don't worry we won't charge for the ice"

Next day, the hot water ran out as the geyser was too small for two adults. We were told that the little geyser served TWO rooms!

For a hotel named after a beautiful flower, you might hope for a slightly better room than this. It was OK at best, but for our budget pockets we really didn't feel it was value for money. The hot water was very limited, less than 5 mins before running cold each time, the room did smell a little mouldy, and unless you lock your bedroom door staff will simply walk in after the briefest of knocks and without waiting for a response, which is not just rude but quite disconcerting!

We were also categorically told that wifi was available in our room by the manager, which we double checked. However, once checked in, it was quickly apparent that this was not the case - only available in reception, the manager was suddenly not around! The wifi worked well down there, but why bother lying about this in the first place?! We had room service as the restaurant looked really shabby, empty and unappealing, and we were pleasantly surprised by the food which we thought was pretty good.

We left too early for the brekkie ... But heard from others that it wasn't great!

Personally if you're on a budget we'd pick the Sundarban Guest House which is just round the corner, is half the price, has incredibly friendly and great service, has constant hot water and wifi in all the rooms, should need it!
