All staffs were well mannered, service was good. Rooms were very clean and well maintained. You would get all type of breakfast, be it continental, or South...

Stayed here during my first visit to Shillong in October 2016. Felt Very comfortable. A homely little place, nice staff. Food is a concern due to the all time fixed menu that you have to order much in advance. But one has the choice to eat out as the location is very good and there are good eating joints nearby.

This a boutique property cosy, comfortable and aesthetically done. Food is amazing particularly if you savour Bengali cuisine. Its in Laitmukrah, a residential colony of Shillong, so removed from noise and crowd of police bazaar area. However, commuting is no problem from here. You will have to rely on taxis while in Shillong. One can get shared taxis to police...

Amazing Stay. Food is light Bengali home cooked food. The hotel is small but well maintained and clean. Hotel staff is very cooperative.

Located right in the middle of town.. The Habitat allows you the proximity and convenience of its location with all facilities to hold national and international conferences. Uncompromising on its aesthetic structure it creates a calm and serene environment with a very homely touch. The walls adorn some very exquisite art forms some of historic significance.
