They save the good rooms for spot bookings. We had booked through Cleartrip almost a month back; result we got the worst room as the amount was already paid up, The room overlooked a dump with grazing cows street dogs and stench. Worse the management had us believe that Cleartrip had asked them to book a 'side sea facing room'.... More

We are very disappointed with what was offered by the Hotel when we stayed there for around six nights this year. Actually our first visit to this property, a few years back, was a very satisfactory one and this was the primary reason for the repeat visit this year. The Hotel was lacking in some of the basic service and... More

While the look of the hotel from both outside and inside is quite pleasing, the "in house" service needs VAST improvement. Quite unprofessional attitude of front office and room service staff.....issues/problems are not attended on time. Regular power cuts in the area render the ACs useless most of the times. Overall, go for this hotel only when you have no... More

Earlier I have stayed at Hotel Camellia and Deep Resort in Puri. So the comparison is very easy for me. 1)You can have a view of the sea from every room.Better to take rooms from 203-208/303-309 All sea facing.Side sea facing rooms are good enough.I was in a side sea facing room. 2)Rooms are clean and whenever you ask after...

If you are looking for a peaceful beach stay.and not go anywhere else other than the beach....this is the place for you.Economic rates,good food,good staff,all rooms sea facing...overall very good experience. Only downside....does'nt have an elevator....so climbing 4 floors every time could be quite trying

WE had a good family stay at Sonar Bangla Puri. This is a small hotel but excellent location as all rooms face the ocean. The ocean is just a stone's through away and really enjoyed swimming and walking. THough a little far from Swargadwar, the central location with restaurants and shopping but there are riskshaws and auto-rickshaws available on the... More

Ambience of hotel is very beautiful. Love the concept of water bodies all over the place with lotus. I will call it quite well kept keeping in mind there were so many water bodies. High level of security, which was appreciable. Location is ok, on way to the airport and close to some new attractions away from the din of... More
