excellent location at Chakratirtha road, quaint and tranquil but not far from maddening crowd of Swargadwar. the hotel at night looks enigmatic with sublime lighting all around and long corridors lit exquisitely. the hotel is a railway heritage hotel and it stands true to its name. all around the hotel one can find picturesof old indian railways, rooms and corridors...

Hotel location is a controversial one, as for some people it is serenity, far from madding crowd and for others it is deserted far away location (for me it was the second one). The hotel is 500 meters barely from station and 2 Kms from Golden beach (Swargadwar). It is a colonial building owned by railways (Govt.) till 9/10 years... More

Spaceous luxury which has become rare among the cramped hotels of Puri on Swargadwar road. Furnitures are modelled on colonial / antique design. Big rooms and big size toilets with open terraces for a beautiful view of sea. Restaurant is good . Food served are also tasty . People are courteous too . Enough space for car parking. Has a...

I had stayed in this hotel on 23rd May with my family. The stay was above my expectations. The hotel is very well maintained including the rooms, corridors, restaurant, swimming pool etc. The check in took only a couple of mins. I had requested a first floor room while booking and as promised by them it was on the first... More

Chanakya Bnr is a mix of elegance, pride and luxury. Truly, it makes family stay comfortable and private. You can feel at home. Occassional swimming in the pool, lush green lawns and wow food add flavors to your sudden weekends and surprise holidays. It is a bit far from the heart of the city but given above criteria, it can... More

We were looking at a place for overnight stay in Puri and all popular hotels seemed booked as it was a long Holi weekend.

My wife and I stayed for four nights over the Holi weekend. The hotel is about a ten minute walk from the beach. The property is grand, however, it is not well maintained by the current management. The staff are eager to help you with smiling faces, however, they are not trained professionally to provide the service efficiently. Our room... More

I have stayed in this beautiful colonial hotel since childhood. The hotel has been handed over to some group who have not kept up its old tradition. The hotel once boasted of the British era with white uniform waiters, lovely laid dining tables with white table cloth. Silence was maintained in common areas and slippers were not allowed in the...
