I found this hotel on the net and felt that there is in the least a statement of taste made by the Hotelier.

The cane furniture is very 'designer' kinds.. more so the furniture in the Restaurant.
My room had a small balcony and a better than decent bathroom.

The Staff at the front desk and F&B was very efficient and courteous.
The location is very central and still away from the main road, hence no noisy nights. :)

Tremendous value for money.

A hotel, I would love to encourage.

Room Tip: I stayed in room 304. The corridor was a bit less lit but the room was spacious and had lots of nat...

I traveled to north east for the first time and finalised to stay in Rains inn after after recommendation from a friend, who stayed there earlier. I booked by sending direct email and they confirmed my booking promptly. On my request they had also arranged airport pick up, which was very convenient.
Hotel is located 50 meters from paltan bazar. My check in was very smooth and we had been given an nice room with big windows. The rooms are nicely decorated with bamboo furniture and bamboo window mats. Room was comfortable and looked soothing. Bathrooms were clean, well maintained with hot & cold water supply and towels were fresh.
Bed linens were clean and good in quality. There is an electric kettle and sufficient supply of tea/coffee pouches in room. Staff is very courteous and efficient.
Breakfast was complimentary with room and one can choose from the options. They have a restaurant, which is next to reception area. We had some of our dinners there and they serve very good Indian/muglai food and we enjoyed our meals.
Top floor terrace is good for view of surrounding area and from there we had seen sun rising from behind a small hill.
They have a travel desk and we booked our taxi through them. We stayed in hotel before going to Shillong and Cheerapunjee and as we liked the service and quality, so on our return we stayed in same place.
In some of reviews I read that people faced problem with payment through credit card and I was a bit apprehensive but one transaction I made was fast.
We overall enjoyed our stay in hotel.

Good hotel, centrally located, helpful and courteous staff, average food, rooms okay, not much bigger but fitted with contemporary facilities, wifi needs improvement. But a nice clean hotel with value for money. Manager Vishwajit is good courteous person. Overall a good stay.

Room Tip: take the higher floor rooms it is noisy due to the location.

After staying in budget hotels, my friend and I upgraded to a room at Rains Inn. Not very expensive, but clean and attractive rooms. Good A/C and flat screen TV. The staff treated us well. Communication could be a bit difficult at times, but overall, no complaints.
