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... More

I stayed at this hotel with my wife from 21st to 25th May 2014. I had booked this hotel through its online portal. I had booked the AC Deluxe room @ Rs.2,500/= per night plus taxes. The good point about this hotel is that its located right on the beach and majority of the rooms are sea facing. There maybe... More

Visited Puri from 18.05 to 23.05.2014, and stayed at Sonar Bangla for 5 days. Booking was easy, a phone call, advance deposit through bank transfer and a mailed confirmation. Reached at night, around 11.45 PM. A nice AC car was available to pick us up (Sri Bapi Ganguly, 9040139675). Chk-in was also hassle free. Had sea facing AC DLX room.Room... More

The Hotel is located in a very quiet and calm location just on sea beach, new marine drive. And the view from the hotel is at its best than any other hotels in Puri. Mainly the front side rooms with balcony. The rooms are well furnished with modern equipments though they have become little old, but very neat and clean.... More

We went to Puri from Gopalpur and stayed in this hotel. It is situated on new marine drive, near lighthouse. The place is less crowded, so one can enjoy the sea. We stayed in a sea facing a/c delux room and enjoyed sunrise from our hotel room balcony itself. I liked the view. Their restaurant was another attraction. Food was... More
