“Not bad..good value for money but needs improvement”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 February 2012

This place had been selected for me by my local friends. Room was clean as was the hotel premises, no problems with hot water 24/7 either.
Only complaint is the kitchen..they have fixed timings for meals(which is fine) but once they ran out of milk for morning tea, then the next day there was no bread for a toast..then..poor communication between reception and kitchen. They need to improve this as well as the casual/unprofessional approach of some of the staff..room service/kitchen defintely could do with some more training.
Room as said before was comfortable..though the sound of heavy traffic through the night was disturbing (trucks plying the main road)..see more under "room tips"

Room Tip: My room was next to the enterance..which is good in a sense that you are away from the rest, BUT..wi...

"Eldorado" is the best guest house in Shillong which i found.. Its resided in Dhankheti area in main road and also nearby to Police Bazaar (Main market of Shillong)..Rs.60-80 towards police bazaar from the gate of Eldorado. Rs.270-400 towards Shillong peak from the guest house. And Rs.1000-2000 to roam entire sight seeing of Cherapunji. The guest house has own restaurant so you can serve warm and hot food.Restaurant timing is 7am to 9pm..Rooms are reasonable as per the locality which starts from Rs.1000..Since its in main road so you can find taxi very easily wherever you want to be around the Shillong or Cherapunji..Those who are visiting Shillong one only i can suggest to stay warm in Eldorado and visit all tourist places in entire Meghaloya as its also a ‘Scotland of the East’ ..Best time to visit : September to April, avoid the monsoons that drench the state from June to September....weather is very attractable in all season... Me & my family's best place to stay in Shillong is just Eldorado Guest House..My all time week-end place is Shillong as Children play ground,Greeny Garden, Restaurant all are available...

Room Tip: Rooms on front side are better then inside the corridor..

My wife and I were visiting Shillong for my friends wedding. We were put up at Eldorado guest house and stayed there for 3 nights. Like most of the houses in Shillong it didn't have a fan nor a/c, at first we were worried as to how we would survive without it soon we discovered that in Shillong one docent need either of them. The guest house is in a colonial bungalow with fairly large rooms and very good ventilation (air and light). Sam who was most of the time at the front office was extremely helpful and generous enough to allow me ride his amazingly modified yamaha. Though they had strict rules pasted on the walls, we were not stopped / interrupted in anything which we wanted to do. The best thing about the place is the cleanliness. Though it was freshly painted I think otherwise also one will find the place spotlessly clean.

Room Tip: All rooms looked good

I'd heard about Eldorado Guest House from a friend who'd stayed there, and I'm glad I followed her recommendation. The guest house has cheaper rooms but we stayed in the deluxe one, which was spacious, comfortable, and also had a nice, traditional feel. Conveniently located, great staff, and an attached restaurant that provides reasonably good food. The hotel staff even took care to call us up to take our dinner order when we were late in returning one night - restaurants in Shillong close early! My 9 year old daughter loved the lawns and the gardens.
A nice place to stay.
