I booked this hotel since I wanted to be on GS Road and wanted to try out a new hotel. the place has no central air conditioning and since the establishment is boxed in, getting out of the AC room is sheer torture. the price of the rooms are not proportional to the quality of the rooms: the AC in the room made noise, mineral water is complimentary only on day of check in and complimentary breakfast is a bland 3-4 item spread. I wouldn't dare check in to this hotel again.
The best thing about this hotel is the great location, just inside a quiet lane off the busy GS Road. So you have a cool and quiet place to stay but at the same time all the big shopping malls, multiplexes, and the best restaurants, are within walking distance. The double room is fairly spacious, with space for a camp bed if there is a third person. It is tolerably clean. The bed linen are very fresh and clean, and you can get a good night's sleep, though the window AC can be a bit noisy. Room service is quick, and the food is pretty good. The staff are very courteous and helpful, which helps to overlook their tendency to open the door without warning. Complimentary breakfast is average with only one main item, mostly puri/bhaji, but bread/toast butter/jam, egg, fruit juice, and cornflakes are available. There is also ample free parking, should you need it, which is priceless considering the great location of the hotel.
The bathroom is average, not particularly clean. Basically the hotel is getting old and in need of a thorough makeover. WiFi is available but Internet speed is unreliable. Room rates are on the higher side, considering the quality and dated look. Considering the hotel category, the food can also be expensive once the taxes and charges are added.
Overall, the great location, helpful staff, and the fact that they allow early check-in (I checked in at 7am) at no charge, more than makes up for the shortcomings.
I did enjoy staying in this hotel.. but the best part of the hotel was that, that the wifi was way too awesome and it can also get the connection from every floor. Thank you priya palace for the wonderful stay.. hope to visit again soon.
While surfing to book room at priya palace guwahati,I found the rate little high Suddenly some one from Clicklytics called me & asked me to book through them & said they will give extra benefit.They said they will give dinner free I booked the room through the link they sent but found in the confirmation that a non Deluxe room with breakfast is confirmed.I immediately called & asked what is non deluxe room as i booked a AC room the person said it is an Ac room & difference between Deluxe & Non Deluxe is just size. I then asked about Dinner which was agreed over phone The person again said dnt worry since its a special gesture,its not mentioned but hotel will provide I thought he is one of the Hotel's Senior Person & did not see any thing foul To my horror when I reached the hotel at 10 Pm on 1st October'15,the front desk person refused to provide dinner free & allotted me a non AC room saying non deluxe room is a non Ac category Room
The hotel refused to listen to any of my explanation & I had to spend the night in non Ac room.T add woes to my misery I had to wait wait at least fifteen minutes in the bathroom for shower as the water was absolutely dirty. I,being a hotelier myself,truly feel that least the hotel could do was to provide me at least an Ac Room Since the website is linked with the hotel,Priya Palace just can not avoid the responsibility of wrong selling their product.If being a hotelier myself cheated outright,I wonder they must be cheating common mam left & right.It was really a very very bad experience especially with the attitude of the hotel as they did not make any effort to address my grievances
I therefore warn all the travellers to be careful about booking through clicklytics
i would score this hotel average while it actually is a good hotel; the review does not have good as a rating.
it is centrally located yet very quite in a residential area. Very close to the main road but away from the noise of the traffic. You are assured a quiet night and a good sleep. Rooms are rather small, restaurant not well maintained. The cleaning staffs should clean up the night's table before sleeping otherwise you will end up with a messy and greasy table at breakfast.
On the brighter side, staffs are helpful and polite, always ready to help. If you are not looking for five star accomodation, its a good place, for a good rest after a tiring visit to busy guwahati.
