This is a fantastic property. The exterior of the building hides its charm as it looks like a small box from the main road however when you’re inside the story is totally different. The property owners name coincidentally is also the one I share "Karan".
I met Mr Karan there, who is the owners son and I was over whelmed by the time and patents he had spent on me. Karan (proprietor) has become a good friend of mine and what I realize is that they run a couple of hotels in Shillong itself in which Hotel Rainbow is the newest vibrant one.
At first when I reached the hotel I was greeted with a warm smile and to my surprise I found the Hotel decor far exceeding the previous 3 star property in which I had stayed during my previous visit to Shillong. The wood paneling the LED lights the carpet flooring and the giant aquarium. It all felt so unrealistic at such a low price.
I stayed in one of the terrace deluxe rooms which was well done up with bamboo and pinewood in its interior. Another thing I liked about my room was the usage of LED lights which no hotels in Shillong are doing apart from them. The best part of my stay was not the room but it came as a pleasant surprise to me when I realized that in the evening they were going to have a small bonfire in the terrace where we could gather and tea would be served to us.
If you’re in Shillong you must visit them.
