“A huge scope for improvement”
Reviewed 12 January 2012

I got a lovely river facing room on the 2nd floor, but was the only good part about my stay in this hotel. For such a great location, this hotel does not do much, which is such a shame! The room seemed like it had been shut for ages with a musty smell all throughout my stay for 4 days. The TV was an ancient 14 inch box with bad cable reception. The bathroom too was not upto the mark. The breakfast was very ordinary.

But the worst part was that once the housekeeping staff just opened my room with their keys while I was sleeping inside the room and I had already shouted come back later.

The good parts: Even though their buffet breakfast was very ordinary, their room service food was pretty above average (the chicken biryani was pretty good and the Chinese cuisine tasted like roadside fare). They provided a good range of skin friendly toiletries.

The management should really look at upgrading their facilities, because this hotel has a lot of potential to do better that it is presently.

The convenient location and pleasant view from the rooms of the Brahmaputra make this a good stop.
The food is adequate but there are better options nearby if you are looking for authentic Assamese food.
The food at the bar upstairs is surprisingly good and compliments an evening beer.

Room Tip: make sure you get a river view room

Located on river Brahmputra with traditional welcome on arrival makes you a V.I.P. in the state. You are presented with Assamese attire & feel warmth of assam. Only slight issue is delay in service of catering. No buffet for Lunch & Dinner but served through Ala Carte & guests having time constraints have to wait a lot for food.

Room Tip: Book rear side rooms facing river Brahmputra.

We booked this hotel for the view of the Brahmaputra taking the executive suite on the 3rd floor for 2 nights. The view has disappeared with new buildings on the side and the hotel seems to be in steady decline. Poor maintenance. Poor cleanliness. Demotivated staff. The lift was out of order for days so it was a long and painful climb for everyone. Many things in the bathroom did not work. The towels and sheets were grey and yellow with age. It is really shameful. Next time-if ever there is a next time- we will stay at Baruah Bhavan nearby. They at least have new clean rooms and staff with pep in them.

Room Tip: Try another hotel !

Very nice staying. The clear view of the great river while enjoying a cup of hot tea- just touched my imagination. Hotel staffs are good. Assamese food varities are limited, though food quality is good. The ferryghat for visiting Umananda Temple is within walking distance.
