The hotel is pretty with good rooms, location, food and service, but the bathrooms stink. It was unbearable. The exhaust of the bathroom of the adjacent room opened into our bathroom. Even the water pressure was quite low. It dampened our stay in otherwise a good hotel. Also - the breakfast spread was very average. Food was also cold.

Dear Sir: We are sorry to hear that you had the smell. we have throughly examined your complaint as it is the first time we have heard something like this. After investigation we feel it might have been due to some maintenance work going in the neighbours and our property. The problem has since been solved.

Me and my wife's recent visit to Shillong saw us stay at this small boutique rest house in a quiet lane in Shillong. The location is away from the rush and din of the city. A bit difficult to be traced through Google Maps though. The building plotted is 5-6 plots away. But that's understandable. We stayed in the Deluxe...

The location is a little off the main Police Bazaar area and is next to an eye care centre. The road is quiet and the hotel is also fairly small. The rooms however are spacious and we had an extra bed with a cot easily accommodated. The beds were firm and the hotel provided a kettle and sufficient charging points...

Enjoyed our stay at The Habitat, (Asian Confluence) Shillong. Its a very cozy and homely place with a quiet and peaceful ambiance. The food was very nice. It is located very near to the market place. The staffs were really friendly and helpful.
