Hotel Brahamputra Ashok

Set in the heart of the business centre, this hotel offers modern amenities with traditional decor. Built in the traditional Assamese style with bamboo and cane furnishing, the hotel is one of the best places to soak in the culture and ambience of Assam. Indeed, guests here at the hotel are welcomed in true Assamese style with a traditional hat and shawl. A tip: the hotel offers excellent views of the river Brahmaputra, but that is provided visitors stay on the second floor and insist on a river facing room. Otherwise, they can find themselves staring at a temporary structure which is coming up. Another thing to note while checking in, is to ask if all credit cards are accepted, as the hotel does not accept American Express.

The USP of the hotel is the location. It takes approximately half an hour to reach here from the airport and the hotel provides transfers which are efficient and cost effective. Do be sure to check that parking charges are included in the transfer before you book. Those on the lookout for alternatives will find plenty of local cabs, which the hotel can arrange. Skin friendly toiletries are available in all the rooms, and since it is located so close to the Brahmaputra river; guests will enjoy taking a morning stroll along the riverside early in the morning. For those who prefer to relax, there is a bar and a disco on the first floor, which becomes active only on Saturdays. For food, there is a restaurant which offers decent local fare. Do be sure to try the teas, as the hotel provides wonderful local variants, which are the highlight of this place.
