“A nice, comfortable stay at good location”
Reviewed 2 February 2014

This is a nice property with good decor, both in the lobby as well as room. The rooms, although small are well furnished and comfortable. The view from the windows may not be to your liking, but that's understandable considering that this hotel is in the market area. The food is really delicious, especially non-veg items. Breakfast menu is decent. The staff is polite and helpful. The hotel has a travel desk as well which to my surprise, was not overpriced.

Overall a good experience.

I had tried several hotels at Guwahati with various degrees of disappointment – until I stayed at Kiranshree about two years ago, which was ranked by this website as the best hotel at Guwahati at that time. I have stayed at this hotel several times since then and generally not felt the need to explore other options, although Kiranshree’s ranking has slipped a bit lower on this site.

This property is in the midst of a busy marketplace. The location is good in terms of connectivity, but the surroundings are not exactly conducive for morning or evening walks. In all fairness, I must say that this is true for most of the leading hotels of Guwahati!

The building gives a cool, modern feel with its pastel coloured interiors and minimalist decor. The rooms are smallish but quite adequately furnished, except for the highly uncomfortable chairs. The level of lighting is a bit low for my taste, especially in the bathroom, where you find a selector switch to choose between the ceiling light and the one over the wash basin!

The internet connectivity is fairly good. In case you take a suite, they even provide a desktop computer for your use.

The restaurant on the second floor is quite good, though somewhat expensive. Their breakfast buffet offers a decent range of dishes, while the ever-smiling Bhagyalakshmi and her team provide courteous service. The coffee shop is disappointing, though.

Check-in and check-out are generally quick and efficient.

On the whole, I would say that Kiranshree is still the best choice at Guwahati.

Stayed one night here. Bed were comfy & wifi worked well. Staff were very friendly & helpful. We ate in the restaurant at night & the food was really good. Just be careful as the side dish orders are huge. All in all I would stay here again.

Kiranshree is on the Busy GS Road but at a junction with a lane.. which very busy ..the corner being local bus stand...added to the Kiranshree portico is very small..two cars can struggle to stand.
Also the lobby is very small. The check in is fast and the staff friendly.
The rooms are good...amenities in room as well as bath room are good/adequate nothing extravagant.
I liked the wifi...both user name and password made simple.
the restaurant in second floor serves buffet with reasonable spread...the South Indian esp masala dosa was good.
Over all the cleanliness of the hotel is quite good

We ended up at Hotel Kiranshree after a very dusty 7 hour bus ride, and because most of the other places we were interested in were booked up for weddings. It seemed like the biggest and most officious looking hotel around, and we wanted quick comfort, so we checked in here. Hotel Kiranshree does have all the trappings of a big, modern, hotel, including the price, but there were lots of little unpleasant details that made it a lot less worth what it's charging. For one, the mosquitoes in the room, the incessant traffic noise from the streets below, and worst of all, we were placed on one of the higher levels and on the weekend, there were crazy clubs/parties right above our room - think non-stop heavy bass from bad bollywood remixes. There was a sign in the room saying that all music should end by 9.30pm, but it didn't till about 10pm, after I had to call the reception. Not quite what I'd call a first-rate hotel experience. However, the room was clean, the wifi worked fine, and the complimentary breakfast is quite mediocre but edible - that much can be said. I'd say that Hotel Kiranshree really isn't worth it's price, and if you're looking for the standard comforts of a hotel, there might be better ones in quieter locations than this.

To start with, this place is at the heart of the city so finding it is no problem. It's awesome right from the front desk, truly world class. I stayed here for a few days with my family and I must say the kids had a ball. Rooms are spacious and very clean. The food is excellent. Service is great. Btw, even their Wi-fi is effective. Access to various parts of the city is easy. The downside, noisy because of its location and a little pricey. Best to stay if someone sponsors you. A great place overall.

An overnight stay here on our way to Darjeeling. Rooms were clean, austere but the beds were uncomfortable and we had Mosquitos buzzing our heads at night. A bit noisy with all the street traffic below. Restaurant food was varied and good. Staff was attentive and helpful.
