Where to Sleep
We have no sleep-related reviews, but it seems this airport closes nightly. Have a backup plan if you’re camping out. For uninterrupted sleep, day rooms are available for transit passengers.

If sleeping in Silchar Airport on a bench does not appeal to you, there are day rooms for transit passengers. Rate: Rs 1500/- (single). If you are looking for a hotel outside of the airport, it is best to head back to Silchar city center (about 30 minutes southwest of the airport), as there are no hotels in or near the airport.
