“Delicious food can't outweigh bed-bugs”
Reviewed 11 February 2014

We would rate this place "Terrible", but we're giving it an extra point (promoting it to "Poor") for the very delicious food served by Room Service, and for its impeccably polite and friendly staff. Simply put, we can't find any fault with the staff or the kitchen.

But then again, there were bed-bugs in our bed, bed-bug husks under the carpet (when we finally got the courage to pull it up), and so much hair on the carpet--the whole way around the room--that we decided it had never been vacuumed once. You could fleece a family-size felt out of all that black Indian hair.

When we saw the first live bed-bug, we stayed up all night with our lights on, hoping they wouldn't come out. We checked out the next day.

We have such bad memories of this place. It was a sad, early stain on our trip to Mizoram. I cannot even believe that the Department of Tourism lets this shambles stand.

If you're staying in Mizoram, the only acceptable options in Aizawl, to our knowledge, are Hotel Airini, Hotel Sangchhia, and Hotel Regency.

Room Tip: If you get a city-facing room, you can look longingly across Aizawl and see where the Hotel Regency...

Though a Govt. hotel, the property is clean and well maintained . Staffs too are very courteous and its real value for money and room tariff are much lower than expected. If you are looking for little solitude in otherwise congested Aizwal this is the right place.

This tourist lodge is a property of Mizoram Tourism. Location of the property is fantastic considering that it has a huge parking space (which is very difficult to find at most of the other places in Aizawl) and is surrounded by mountains and all the natural beauty. The rooms are spacious, the toilets well built and big but not sparkling clean, hot water availble and the biggest advantage is big balcony attached to (I believe) all the rooms. Rooms in the old wing are a bit shabby but are front facing. The extended new wing a bit better because of newer construction. Room service is not that great and food average / below average. The biggest problem being faced is that most of the hotel staff are not good at English or Hindi and a visitor from outside Mizoram will certainly not be able to understand even a bit of local Mizo language.

Room Tip: Try getting rooms in the new wing which are better because of newer construction

Large rooms, huge bathrooms, unlimited hot water. The rooms were clean, though somewhat shabby. THe attached balcony was wonderful though...sunlit and just perfect. I couldn't get the TV to work during my three night stay, but that was ok because the view was so stupendous that one didn't need the idiot box.

Mine was an east facing room, and it was a treat to be woken up by the morning sunlight flooding the room. Though the weather was cold, the rooms were snug and cosily warm at night. THe place is large, and a bit rambling. If you have trouble negotiating stairways, ask for rooms accordingly.

This place must have the fastest room service on the planet. Coffee comes in minutes, breakfast within just a few more. The staff are courteous and friendly.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view of the magnificent hills of Mizoram.
