“Decent digs!”
Reviewed 7 May 2013

Right in town and loads of different room configurations to choose from...excellent room service staff who are predominantly tribal from Tripura state...Indian food delivered of a good quality...well appointed rooms, some of them, with great beds and bathrooms and LCD TV's; even a suite with a small private courtyard you could entertain in! Rainbow and its wonderful owner, when he is about, is a joy for a short stay right in the heart of Shillong! Every hotel could do with some improvements but Rainbow does it all pretty well!

Room Tip: Try to avoid/change rooms with noisy Indian customers who drink too much or get up early and start s...

Hotel is located in Shillong market area which makes it easily accessible. The ambiance and the rooms are very good at the rate they offer. We had taken a room on triple sharing basis and it was quite spacious for three of us to accommodate. Room has TV and good cable connection as well. There is only one fan in the whole room near bed which sometimes becomes annoying. Also there is no window in the room for proper ventilation. Best part is running hot water and electricity all the time. Hotel and rooms are exactly the same they have shown on their site. So you can check out the photos there directly.
We found the hotel receptionist a bit arrogant and not helpful.

The best part of this hotel is its location. It is located in the Police Bazar, good market ad surrounded by good eating place ( Bread Cafe and Barbeque). The rooms are clean and has enough space. Bathroom is also clean and big. 24 hrs hot water. Bed are clean and soft. Staff was very cooperative and well behaved. I would advice them if they could cover their blankets so that they easy to clean and feel good.

Room Tip: Rooms which have window are comparatively cooler as compared to rooms without windows which are cozy...

This hotel has an excellent room service, well behaved staff, nice rooms to stay for 2-3 people together, very good decorations so that you will love to stay here. Rooms are quite spacious and are associated with all essential amenities. Bathrooms are good too. Beds are too good to sleep. I wish all the best for this hotel.

Room Tip: rooms beside reception are very good

It offers beuatiful ambience and bful rooms
but
when in shillong u will have difficulty finding goood north indian /sout indian food, what u get is dishes made with chines/north eastern flavour.
Thus food in shillong for a north indian will be diffiuclt to get, apart from this , rooms are clean with good ambience at reasonable prices

Its a nice affordable place to stay. They really have what they show on internet. You just call them and they will cater to your needs. Most important thing is that they offer you flat rates and you dont need to bargain.

This was one of the best hotel we stayed in India. Very small, family owned hotel. Excellent roomservice, clean and very local in the center of Shillong. The owner is so friendly and helps you out everytime. We stayed 2 weeks in the nice awesome Hotel.

Kann es wirklich nur weiterempfehlen!!! Sehr sauber und super freundliches Personal.

Best wishes from Germany.
