Hotel Orchid
Ranked #44 of 80 Shillong B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 June 2013

The orchid hotel put up with 20+ of my foreign friends and family for my wedding and were still smiling at the end of it, bless em. The deluxe and super deluxe rooms upstairs are big and airy with private balconies and walk in wardrobes. The beer in the bar is cold and the food in the restaurant is yummy, book ahead for dinner. The center of town is a 10min walk away and you're also on the public transport route. Overall a great government run hotel offering a pleasant stay...when not overrun by phareng

Stayed on 29th April 2013. We took a Deluxe Room which costed us about Rs.2,000/-

Room- The room's are spacious with a attached balcony, closet room and decent sitting in the main room.It seem's a great deal for just 2k but at night felt there were bed bugs

Location - 10 to 20 drive away from main market police bazzar

Service- Terrible, the restaurant takes the last order by 9:30 and after that you wont find anyone around- wont even get a bottle of mineral water-no room service. Our waiter served us our order and disappeared. We had to clear the plates our self's and spend the night without water.

Shillong had been a wonderful place for travelers. But I had a not so good experience with the Hotel Orchid in Shillong. In particular I was coming from Orchid Resort in RI BHOI (Lake Umium) which was fascinating. Though location was not so good and the service was even poor. The rooms were dark and damp. They looked very gloomy and the whole ambience was spooky. We took the bottom most floor but presume the top floor will be little better. The rooms were costly as the service. But it was not worthy enough. You may get a far better accommodation with half of the price. Hotels like baba in the city center were really good and costs half much. The service was also tremendous.

Hotel Orchid is a nice and cheap hotel. The rooms are average, but the fact that some rooms are situated underground makes for an unique experience for first-timers to this region. The polished bamboo walls look good, but could have been better-maintained. The food isn't bad either.

But the highlight of this place is the excellent bar!

Hotel Orchid,maintained by Meghalaya Tourism,is one of the best budget hotels with all the amenities a short stay in Shillong,its little bit away from the crowded Police Bazar for a quite and breezy wind all around the evening.

I recommend budget travelers to chose this hotel to make their stay in Shillong a memorable one.

Room Tip: One can choose from their starting range of Rs.1000 for groups one can opt for their Dormitory start...

this property is a good budget property in shillong. Maintained by the Meghalaya tourism Department. The service standards here is average. room service almost comes to a stand still by 9pm (including dinner). the rooms are spacious with a balcony space. the property looks old but well maintained. The restaurant has average speed to serve food, but is good. you can pick the right season and visit shillong, it would be a good experience.
