Excellent hotel. A home away from home. Calm location away from crowded area.Most of the rooms are sea facing. Not even a minute walk to the beach. Close to light house. Hospitality is excellent. Rendered us full support when needed at night even.Helped us to get up at 4.30 am in the morning with a wake up alarm and find... More

First, if you happen to check the location of this hotel in Maps, it would be a little misleading. Maps shows it right beside Hotel Sea Gull at the main area of Swargadwar while actually it is almost a kilometer and a half away near the Lighthouse. When I first took an auto from the station, I almost thought that... More

I with my family visited March 2015 and stayed for 2 days. This is an excellent place to stay.On the Puri beach and the place is quite far from the crowd. The best thing about this hotel is it's location. All rooms are sea facing.Hotel staffs are very helpful. The only drawback is their ground floor restaurant which I think... More

The hotel is situated at the far end of marine drive, right on the beach - a good location away from the irritating hustle and bustle of the town. Due to its location the beach almost seemed like a private one with the hotel having two sheds on the beach also. The rooms are big and comfy. We stayed at... More

Having read all the reviews, i considered this place to be an option if nothing is there. But when we arrived, it turned out to be a fantastic place to stay in puri. Got... More

I stayed here with my family during Rath Yatra 2014, supposed to be one of the busiest times in Puri. The hotel is situated on the further end of Marine Drive road, and offers good, unobstructed views of the sea from its sea-facing rooms. The four - bedded room was huge, with ample space to walk around, with a side... More

On November, 2014, I along with family members visited Puri and stayed at Sonar Bangla. It is situated on the bank of the sea. Particularly viewing the roaring sea sitting inside the room was very much enchanting. Accommodation was good together with warm hospitality and complementary breakfast. We enjoyed the food served at the restaurant at basement. Overall my first-hand... More

Hotel Sonar Bangla under any condition, cannot be called a 3 star Deluxe property, because it lacks maintenance. The Restaurants, Bath Room, Passage Area, Coridoors all needs proper make over. The rooms are big, spacious average in terms of cleanliness but again after seeing the property it seems that a lot of slip shot work has been done, like it... More
