Stayed here during my first visit to Shillong in October 2016. Felt Very comfortable. A homely little place, nice staff. Food is a concern due to the all time fixed menu that you have to order much in advance. But one has the choice to eat out as the location is very good and there are good eating joints nearby.

This a boutique property cosy, comfortable and aesthetically done. Food is amazing particularly if you savour Bengali cuisine. Its in Laitmukrah, a residential colony of Shillong, so removed from noise and crowd of police bazaar area. However, commuting is no problem from here. You will have to rely on taxis while in Shillong. One can get shared taxis to police... More

Amazing Stay. Food is light Bengali home cooked food. The hotel is small but well maintained and clean. Hotel staff is very cooperative. Any travel plan to be made should be made through them and should ask for 'Sanjay Kuri' or 'Jhontu Pal' for traveling to Sohra or mawlinglong as they take extra effort to make ur travel safe and...

Located right in the middle of town.. The Habitat allows you the proximity and convenience of its location with all facilities to hold national and international conferences. Uncompromising on its aesthetic structure it creates a calm and serene environment with a very homely touch. The walls adorn some very exquisite art forms some of historic significance.

Words can't do justice to the warm hospitality extended by this boutique guest house. Right from the room, to the food and staff, everything was perfect. Yes, they didn't have room service, but there were enough tea and coffee sachets for us to enjoy a cup whenever we felt like. The staff also helped us get a reliable driver for... More
