Too many problems with the hotel

2.3/7
Posted 2 Feb, 2017

We stayed here for 2N. Faced multiple issues in the hotel 1. Parking problem: the road in front is no parking zone and the hotel has no parking lot of its own. So it was very diff to manage taxi or private cab boarding. You need to wait with all your luggage in the pavement to get into the car 2. We were given a room in 2nd floor (room no 101). The charging point did not work for our laptop and Mobile. Strangely it worked only for their TV. We could not understand the reason though. When we checked in the adjoining room, it worked 3. There was a continuous drilling noise just beside our room as renovation sort of work is going on in the hotel. It was so unbearable for us we could not sleep an hour after a strenuous journey. Nothing happened even after our repeated requests. They stopped the work at late night, disturbing our peace to the fullest. Yakk 4. No restaurant in the hotel. You need to go out and have food. There is a menu card in the room with huge pricetag. They bring it from another hotel opp to it 5. The washbasin tap was not working and it has no option of hot water in any of the rooms. Geyser was there for name sake and it worked very weirdly for only the bathing tap 6. Next day after nagging for a room change, they shifted us to the top floor and needless to stay climbing 4 floors on foot in a hilly region was really not very easy. However the room was okay and we somehow passed the night 7. Only good thing about the hotel: Location. Right in the middle of the market. Nothing else worth to be mentioned. Much better options available in the same location My Jet Privilege No: 184964183

Staff in the hotel were good

4.6/7
Posted 17 Nov, 2016

In the month of November 2016 I had been to this hotel. The destination of the hotel was good. The location of the hotel was very good and located near to the city. The appearance of the hotel was good, internally and externally. There was no delay in check in and checkout. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and quick in services. The room allotted to me was very good with required amenity in working condition. I did not eat food at this hotel. I did not utilize any of the activity in the hotel. I will recommend this hotel for upcoming travellers.

Rooms are good and service also fine

5.7/7
Posted 4 Jun, 2016

Rooms are good and service also fine. One thing I didn't like is that the rooms are made of wooden walls and bamboo. If you talk even in normal pitch. People in nearby rooms can clearly hear you and you can hear them. Lesser privacy. Not sure if all rooms are like that. But most of them had similar construction. Unlucky if a noisy family stays next to your room.

I had visited this hotel for official work. The appearance of the hotel was good. The heater facility was not available in the room. The geyser facility was provided in the washroom. The hotel was good. I would suggest this hotel to remove the technical problem.

Overall experience was good at the hotel. The hotel was good. I didn’t take food from the hotel. I had visited this hotel for official purpose. The activity was not conducted at the hotel. I would recommend this hotel for other travellers. The best part of the hotel was location. I would suggest this hotel to provide late night coffee in the hotel.

Really recommended for budget travelers

5.3/7
Posted 27 Apr, 2016

It is safe to say that Hotel Rainbow is one of the best hotel I have stayed in. Having gone through a fair number of hotel in Shillong, I can safely assure that rainbow Hotel, for its apt location close to the Centre Point Shillong, crisp service and impressive appearance makes for a memorably pleasant and undisturbed stay. Beautifully lit rooms, clean ambience and good food-Rainbow Hotel prides itself in all these. If you are a tourist visiting with a family, then this is an apt place to stay. Hotel tariff is worth it. Although, it isn't really recommended for budget travelers.

As a holiday destination this hotel was good. The appearance of the hotel was good. The hotel was conveniently located. The hotel was located nearby the bus stand and market. The overall experience staying at the hotel was good. The car parking facility was very poor. The room was very good, very clean and neat. All the basic amenities like geyser, TV and the blanket were provided in the room. The bathroom was maintained. The hotel service was much delayed. The non-vegetarian food was good in taste. The activities were not provided by the hotel. The hotel provided a vehicle for sightseeing facility. The booking and the front office were good. The behaviour of the staff was good.

Good room with all the normal amenities

3.7/5
Posted 21 Oct, 2013

We were a family of four. 3 days and 2 nights we stayed at Shillong, Meghalaya. The tour, including the hotel was arranged by of Guwahati in association with Holiday IQ. Out itinerary was pick-up by car at Guwahati, Day 1: Guwahati to Shillong, Day 2: Shillong to Cherrapunjee and back to Shillong and Day 3: Shillong to Guwahati. En-route, we had sightseeing of tourist spots; all we did really enjoy. Meghalaya was sans "megh"; the sky was spotless all through. Being so, though we missed the famed cloud and rain of the place, the absolute clear weather, did gave us the spectacular panoramic views. On the tourist spots, mention worthy here is about the spot that is not on tourists, must visit itinerary "the KHO RAMA OR MAW TROP" [this is a giant natural rock formation resembling a "Shiva Lingam" / Up turned conical Khasi basket; 200 feet tall. It carries a legend too. ]. This is really spectacular and I consider it as worth visiting . . The reception at HOTEL RAINBOW was quite cordial. The room, considering the tariff, was quite good with all the normal amenities provided; the housekeeping too was good. However, the basic necessities viz. The toiletry articles - only towel and a Bath bar was provided (As far as we are concerned and considering the budget cost I paid, I feel that the provisions are okay). The service, both at the front desk and room service, was prompt and courteous. The food too was good. About the appearance of the entry of the hotel, I feel that this should be bettered. Since the Reception is on the first floor, one has to take to stairs to reach there; it is only the hotel's sign board that speaks about its existence. Incidentally, during our stay at Shillong, precisely on the 8th October 2012, there was road blockade starting from 7:00 PM to 5:00 AM next day. We were not aware of that before hand and, thanks to the personnel at the reception of the Rainbow Hotel, we were able to make a quick look around the bustling Center Point area of the town. We all wanted to have a comfortable and safe stay and we got that. If any body travelling to Shillong and want a comfortable stay at a convenient location in the town in a budget expense, I strongly and confidently recommend Hotel Rainbow.

The room service was good. Wellhead staff. They arrange cabs for local trips if asked. Food was nice and reasonably priced. They should cover their blankets so that they are kept clean and feel good

Good services and comfortable room but poor food quality

3.8/5
Posted 7 Aug, 2015

I visited Kodaikanal with my family and resided at this hotel. The hotel was convenient to locate and cab facility was provided by the management. The appearance of the hotel is good and staff members are helpful and prompt in service. The room allotted to us was maintained cleanly and spacious enough to accommodate a family with all the required amenities. The food served in the hotel was good in quality and taste but varieties were less. There are no indoor-outdoor games available at this hotel. Overall, the hotel is comfortable to stay and considering the budget the hotel was good but I suggest the management to improve the food menu.
