Hotel Alpine Continental
Ranked #8 of 21 Hotels in Shillong
Reviewed 13 April 2017

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!

Room Tip: Take something in higher floors to cut noise from the market

Well.... I'll explain the contradictory title....
Good.... cos the rooms are clean and hygienic.... The bathrooms are great.... overall once you're inside the room.. you'll have a great feeling about the hotel...
The problem is that you don't land up directly in the room do you? The approach to the hotel is a nightmare specially if you are a first timer in Shillong....the hotel looks extremely modest from the outside... and the hotel really needs to do something about the lounge the elevator and the corridors which do not exactly exude a very flattering impression....( mind you this hotel isn't that inexpensive too)... the breakfast is sufficient with a modest spread......
the location is in one extremely narrow lane which is both hard to find as well as to negotiate when discovered.... police bazar though is a 5 min walk only.....
But I'll still give it 4 stars cos the hotel actually scores 5 stars on room quality ...
After all the room is what Matters the most... the rooms actually are good and pretty contemporary.....
They have good fittings in the room and the rooms seemed to have been done up recently......
So don't get too distressed if you find the outer facade discouraging....
For the management- it would do your hotel a great deal of good if you just improved the lounge and corridors...

We stayed here with total 10 members in 4 rooms & our stay was really awesome. Everything is well organized. One thing they need to work upon is there Breakfast menu. Every alternate day its the same & while staying long one needs a fresh menu to be displayed.

The hotel is located at the heart of the city, very close to the Police Bazaar road. The hotel property is small but well maintained. we stayed here for 4 nights in March. Please note there is no place for parking if you plan to self drive.

The room was clean and spacious enough. the bathroom was clean and well maintained and hot water was available 24*7. The bed was too soft for our comfort. the room did not have any view and it is surrounded by buildings all around.

The staff service was good. The breakfast spread was good. definitely recommended for families and kids.The staff was prompt and good and room cleaning every day.

Overall satisfied with my stay here! no complaints!

This hotel is situated at the heart of the city and is walking distance to the shopping hub, police bazar. Owing to its close proximity to eating outlets its total value for money. Breakfast and dinner are good. The service is also very good but do carry your toiletries.

Room Tip: Higher floors are better and especially the corner rooms
