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

The location is quite good. Though its quite far from the main city center and railway station. The hotel is almost on the beach right across the marine drive road which allows people to have amazing views of the sea from their room balcony itself. But the service is not unto the mark. Specially the attitude of the room service... More

The main USP of this Hotel is its location & Front sea view which I think is common with all other Hotels along the marine drive Puri...So nothing special....There are so many pathetic points that I am confused from where to start with....Still will give a try Pros : Calm location away from the main city traffic Great Sea View....

The hotel is located right on the beach which makes it one of the best located hotels. The room was overlooking sea. The room was modern and clean. Bathroom was clean. Linens were clean and changed regularly. Quality of food was good especially bengalis will find it as per their taste but other cuisines are not up to the mark.... More

This hotel has clearly seen better days. We were in 305, 306 and 307. Great view of the sea was the highlight. The beach in front of the hotel has a shack which seems to be a gambling den for the local fishermen. Also in front of the hotel is a rickshaw stand which does come in handy if you... More

We stayed on 14th and 25th of August, 2014. Location wise very good. Far from the madding crowd. Most of the rooms have spectacular sea view. Stayed at First floor AC deluxe rooms having nice and clear sea view. Reception is impressive and the corridor as well. However, when you enter you will get a bad odour everywhere. Hotel has...
