First about the location: This is on an uphill road (very steep) and is not too easy to find. The location is available on google maps that I recommend using. The best part is that in spite of being a budget property, they have a parking space (that's a big deal in Shillong). It is bang in the middle of one of the most popular markets (Police Bazar). That means shopping and eating out (there are malls and branded restaurants close by) is very convenient. The con is that the area is prone to traffic jams and it kills the aesthetic look of the hotel. Make your choice.
The hotel in itself is good on the inside. The rooms are decent sized and have basic amenities. The staff is usually helpful and reception folks help with questions about shopping or touring. I would say this is almost similar to an average 3 star hotel you will find in Delhi/Mumbai (think Paharganj in Delhi or a sub urban hotel in Mumbai).
The buffet breakfast is average and the food otherwise is decent in terms of options and taste. They might serve something for you that might not be on menu, if you give prior notice. The restaurant manager was helpful with food for my 2 year old.
Tip 1- when booking with Shillong check with hotel if they have parking (if you have a vehicle). If not, you will end up paying 200-300 bucks every night in Paid parkings
Tip 2- Carry your umbrellas and rain coats when traveling to this part of the world!
