.... thats what we did. We had planned a last-minute 2 days trip for Shillong and Cherrapunji. Arriving at Shillong's Police Bazaar, found all other hotels fully-booked. So checked into Broadway. The hotel gives an impression of having seen better days. We got a room that shouldn't cost more than Rs. 900 at 1500. Had to climb 3 floors since there are no lifts. The overall decor of the hotel is quite decent. But the bathrooms were a bit dirty (all fitments, buckets, floors stained due to hard water). The quality of food is good though I would say its a bit overpriced. The next morning we needed to start early for our Cherrapunji but we woke up to find the taps dry. It was only after a few calls to the reception that the pumps were switched on to load the overhead tanks.
Overall, its not a bad hotel. Feels quite safe. Its just that the management seems inefficient. They ought to provide a quality of stay that justifies the price they charge.
