My friend and me rode our motorcycles to shillong and met our friends in this place. 1. First of all parking space is available in the premises itself. Riders will like this place coz they will feel their vehicles are safe. It's a basement parking. 2. Axis bank is in the premises. 3. They have a lift. 4. I am... More

This place is the worst place if you want to stay. The receptionist is unprofessional. Water is so dirty that you would not feel like touching it, forget taking bath. Just avoid. Pathetic is one word to define this hotel.

Rooms had cockroaches all over the place, so much that I had to keep the lights switched on all night. The manager is super rude and street smart. The room service boys stole stuff from my room while I wasn't there. Threatened to not let me enter the hotel if I was late (post 12 am). No driveway so for... More

Apart from the location in the downtown, I can't say anything positive about this place. The room was dirty, with betel juice spit induced stain on the walls, sticky floor, dirty toilet, leaky faucet, sub par decor. The service was terrible. I booked my room online and when I went to the reception I was told that there was no... More

See the hotels in Shillong are not good on average. If you want to stay in a decent hotel, you'll have to pay 3000 or more rupees. So, this hotel charged us 1500 INR per night for a standard room for 2 persons (February 2016). The interior of the room is bad. Very limited natural light is available, and electrically... More
