Hotel Gandhara is a haven of peace and relaxation in a busy dusty city. It is impeccably clean. I had the best food and masala tea of my whole India trip here. The guys in the kitchen cooked me exactly what I wanted! I had a whole day to wait for my train after check-out and was most welcome to... More

The Gandhara Hotel is a total gem. The garden and pool area is a great area to relax. The reasonably priced restaurant served good food and you can watch it being prepared. Rooms are very nice, clean and well equipped. If exploring Puri and the surrounding area we would recommend Hotel Gandhara.

Pool garden was nice and quiet as everyone else mentioned, but the room is very basic so don't expect too much of it. Breakfast takes forever to prepare, I had to wait for 25 minutes to get a basic omelet with toast, coffee and juice. And there were no other guests at that time. Check out is 9 am which... More

We stayed at Gandhara for three nights in February. The staff were very warm and friendly, their associated travel agency helped us to sort travel and train tickets, and the place was spotless. After spending time in some touristy, less-than-spotless hotels, the Gandhara was a welcome treat. Everyone, guests and staff, were smiling all the time, a good social atmosphere.... More

If you enter the garden and see the people sitting by the pool reading, enjoying drinks or food served there you feel immediately it is a relaxing place. My room was well designed with windows to three sides of it, so it was well lit and the view was nice. It is even better on their roof garden, if you... More

Everything was excellent. The room, the staff, restaurant and the pool is very well maintained. It is very close to the beach, just walking distance. We even booked one more night extra. We just loved it and would def stay there again.

The Gandhara is deceptive: you step right off the busy main road with its suicidal motorcyclists, honking traffic and wandering pedestrians into a tiny room that serves as the reception, which opens into a small garden. The hotel comprises 2 buildings, the old building behind the garden serves as the dining area, but behind this is a large courtyard with... More
