Hotel City Palace, Guwahati
Paltan Bazar Guwahati
I arrived at the City Palace from Shillong at around 8 and chose to stay in there cause I found the hotel to be the best camp to catch my Rajdhani express destined to New Delhi via Siliguri the following morning at 6. After a tedious journey, I felt lucky to have landed near the hotel by the tourist cab from Shillong as incidentally the taxi stand happened to be at stones throw from the hotel. It was so nice that I need not waste my time and energy to locate a good hotel in the place burning with heat. As I headed to the Hotel I was amused to find the lift boy help me out. Next I was relaxed to find a room of my liking which was readily provided by the charming receptionists who were responding smilingly to my queries with regard to what the hotel would be providing. After checking in a good shower was so refreshing that I almost forgot the jerks experienced during my drive from Shillong. A sip of VAT 69 with the light music in the Bar downstairs was really sending me into pleasure, a bliss which I wished more and more but as I had to rest and refresh myself for tomorrows journey I finished my shot and came to my room. The dinner was ready on the table as ordered. The boiled rice with chicken curry accompanied by Dal, sabji and of course tandoori roti was mind blowing. Next morning I was awaken at 5 by hotels timer-counter as pre-requested last night and had a glass of water as I generally avoid eating before journey and hence there was no need to bother about breakfast. It was really amazing to have spent a night in that hotel where housekeeping, food and the response from the staff was very very good. The place shall be my future transit camp for onward journeys.

Hotel is located at the center of Guwahati just opposite to the ASTC bus stand, near Guwahati Railway Station. The location is perfect for both tourists as well as for business travelers. Although outside noises are not present inside the room but when I stayed there was some renovation works going on so lots of construction noises during the day. I stayed in AC single deluxe room. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bed was comfortable and also there was an almirah. Hotel staff was very efficient and also professional. Front desk staff was also helpful. Overall a very good place to stay in Guwahati. The only problem is that the hotel was quite expensive (or rather overpriced) but you can try some bargaining.
