When travelling in the North East of India, one must be prepared to make do with logistics that are of a bare, no frills and non luxurious nature. Hotel Bheigo at Imphal is one such hotel in Imphal. We booked our stay there for a couple of nights as there were no rooms available at Hotel Classic, the best hotel in Imphal as we were told.
There are rooms for almost every budget, non AC and AC, with both kinds having suite and non suite rooms. The rooms are large enough, though they could do with proper maintenance. Peeling paints from the walls and bedsheets with holes..... if you are fussy about these, this one's not for you. The toilet is very basic and small, but they have running hot and cold water. The tap on the basin in my toilet was not working, and the staff could not do much to help.... after much fidgeting, we could manage to get a small trickle from the tap, and that was what I had to make do with. The food menu is limited, the food is nothing extraordinary, but as I said, its not bad, and one can make do.
The doorknob of the room in which a colleague of mine was staying had come off, and the staff was not able to fix that, and the room would not get locked and would not close properly at most times.
The service is prompt and courteous.
On the whole, if you do not get Hotel Classic or if you are on a budget, you can make do with this hotel. Strictly utilitarian, tariff is relatively low compared to other hotels and location is good and convenient, as it is close to most places in Imphal, including the airport.
P.S. - A lady colleague who was to check into this hotel did not stay here after seeing her room (the AC suite room, the best one of the hotel) and preferred sharing a room with another lady colleague at the Classic Hotel, which had been booked early).
