Close to Police Bazaar, this property is spacious, clean and well maintained. It has a small restaurant and seating outside the rooms for coffee. Staff are well behaved and courteous. Service can improve and could me more responsive as you need to order your dinner and breakfast in advance, and you can't change it.

El Dorado is an Assam type house and was converted to a Bed and Breakfast type hotel a few years ago.The rooms are simple but clean and cozy and the bathrooms in the older wing are decent. There are 2 wings now and the newer building lacks the warmth and homely atmosphere of the original cottage, so I hear, as... More

Not a pleasant stay at all. The guys don't even know how to behave with their guests. They just bumped into our room just after checking in to repair the intercom. There is a lack of privacy in the rooms and one has to hear the hustle and bustle of the kitchen and corridor all day long. You wont be... More

We had booked this place via a Travel agent and I remember asking for a no-frills place just to stay the night. Eldorado's location and its lofty Meghalaya-style architectural rooms were a pleasant surprise. When we had issues with the room being too bare, the guys at the reception were nice enough to show us the other options and instead... More

I had booked this place directly with the hotel after seeing reviews. Had a comfortable stay. I liked this part of the city far better than staying crowded police bazar. Many cafes and small restaurants near don bosco square which is walkable. Sam and his team were friendly and helpful. Breakfast was small but adequate. Only issues: tourists next door... More

This property is located at a very central place. The location is good. It looks like an old heritage club, has some nice rooms, even the food served is good. The only issue is in the service level, which are just average. One can label this as a heritage property.

Eldorado's location is quite convenient as it away from the loud and busy Police Bazar and is walking distance from Laitumkrah which is the hub of cafes and restaurants. The rooms are cosy yet spacious with high ceilings, timber interiors and a cute fireplace. Staff is courteous and quite helpful too. As two girls traveling by ourselves, we had a... More
