Searching in a cab for this place, it was difficult to find. We were alarmed how the place would be. But this was the last bad part of our story. The staff was very helpful and caring. Rooms were well made and clean. Co-visitors were decent dignified people and we could get along. They had good things to say about the owner.
Food was excellent. Service was prompt and very personalized. In short it was everything we could ask for.
The place is located close to the foothill of the Navagraha mandir. MC road on which it is located is also supposed to be an upmarket area. The place is inconspicuous from the outside but very spacious and homely from the inside.
All in all it is a place worth recommending. If I ever visit Guwahati again, this is the place I will blindly select.
