- near Laitmukhrah bazar - in a quiet lane near bazar - helpful staff - fairly okay rooms, hygiene can be improved. - Okay for a night's stay: there is nothing much to do in the area and the bazar is also not very exciting. It would be better to consider a hotel which is more self contained with lawns and gardens and a view as it can get pretty boring spending time in Shillong market area.

I have been to The habitat Inn with my family in May 2019. I stayed there for 3 days and felt that I should have stayed there for longer. The guest house is very tastefully done. The location is a just a lane away from the main road however very peaceful. The interiors are done very tastefully. Location: its in the heart of the city and few food joints are a walk away. Rooms: are very clean and with very good heritage and wel maintained furniture. Service and Staff: They are very helpful and supportive. Breakfast: Its simple and limited menu. Special mention for Shubhonkar and Shabari for their hospitality.

I was simply made to feel at home from the beginning. The rooms are very clean. The location is very quiet, but not out-of-the-way. The interior decor is attractive. All questions were dealth with quickly and courteously.

Not just everything that looks good on picture are actually glorious... here is something we discovered which is more enjoyable more glorious than it’s visible on pictures .... Every corner of this property is been given personalised attention to take out best out of every stairs, every corner every stone . The warmth is heart touching along with yummy home made food . The choices may not be much for the menu but when it’s cooked with love even the khichadi becomes this finger licking . This beyond just a place to stay if you go there try and connect with the values more ... Very convenient to reach ... car park ... even got a car wash 😊

Thanks for your very kind review. Just to note for sake our clarity that we do not have a regular car wash. It sometimes can be offered subject to availability but is not a regular service.

Everything was okay about the hotel - the staffs, the food. But rooms were very very small. The breakfast is not for free as it shows in the advertisement. At this price better stay in the mid of the town so that you can at least enjoy walk in the town
