One of the best medium budget hotels in shillong. Rooms are decent, clean and comfortable. Particularly the terrace rooms are awesome, even for couples. Room service is very nice and fast, even with the lack of intercom (you have to press a switch and tada, he's there!) I would certainly recommend it to everyone.

Nice hotel with clean rooms though a bit shabbily maintained especially electric points like TV, Geyser, Switchboards Room Phone etc. Food was priced reasonably but there are lots of food joints (I recommend 'Barbeque') nearby which provide excellent food. One can stay here mainly for the location, heart of Police Bazaar with local markets, malls and tourism offices nearby.Lodging prices... More

Normal hotel, nothing special about it. Room kinda dirty, cold (many open holes in wall and window) and smely (above restaurant). Good value but i'm sure shillong has better options. We were in a hurry so that was what we got. Check instagram @onetripping

The hotel is located in downtown Shillong. You can find good restaurants, bars, and shops all within a ten minutes walk from the hotel. The rooms are quite nice - the wooden interiors enhancing the ambiance. However, the most important factor that will affect your experience is how much you pay for the rooms. We felt that there wasn't a... More

The hotel is centrally located. Has a good Chinese restaurant next to it. Rooms are clean and hygenic. Well mannered staff. The only reason i am saying overpriced is that the rooms are very small compared to the room fare. For one night they charged me Rs.1650(Charges exclusive). No doubt a good hotel to stay in but again the size... More

Stayed here with friends.. The hotel is located right in the centre of shilling which is a plus point. There are no great views from the rooms, just the busiest Street of shillong. A good option if you like to go out and explore rather than relax in the room with a good view.

A decent budget hotel. There are many hotels in Shillong but very few are a good. This hotel has no view. Rooms are decent and has lots of bamboo and wood based ambiance. Decent staff. Very close to the main market place.
