We halted for a short stay at BB after our trip to Shillong. BB provided clean accomodation and home cooked food. The staff need special mention for their courteous behaviour - all the staff and particularly Team Leader Kalita addressed all our requests both promptly and satisfactorily. We will recommend BB and stay there again. - Partha S Bhattacharjee

We were a group of 7 Irish teachers ranging in age from 30's to 60's. We found this to be a very quiet, cool spot in the middle of busy, humid Guahaiti. It was spotlessly clean and very tastefully decorated- our room had four poster beds and a large bathroom. The air conditioning was great and also nice to have... More

Hello ! I'm really delighted and privileged to have hosted you ladies from Ireland. More so, because I am a product of an Irish Christian Brothers' boarding school, viz. St. Edmund's School, in Shillong, Meghalaya and am therefore well aware of the Irish lifestyle and petty nuances. Thank you for your kind words. Raj Baruah More

Although I had read favourable reviews of Baruah Bhavan, I was pleasantly surprised by the service and facilities offered.

In the centre of a busy city, near a local market and old business area this small hotel is well situated.
