nothing can be spoken in favour of this hotel ! price wise- high, cleanliness- worst, service- nil, food- pathetic, front desk- horrible, and last but not the least- may be you face the sea but never can see due to obstructions blocking the sight. no one should ever dare to stay in this hotel!!

Staying in Sonali was the weirdest expirience in my life, even the super deluxe rooms were horrible, so were the washrooms. Position was however good. The rooftop restaurant was good but ground floor restaurant Ruchira was horrible.

We were at Hotel Sonali, Puri from 09.05.14 to 12.05.14. Very poor service of front office. They give us rooms after 7.30 a.m. Room services and restaurant is good. 3rd Floor sea facing rooms are excellent.... No pick-up / dropping facilities available. If you book from Kolkata during rushes, try to book only Delux DBR. Food quality is good but... More

Recently we were at Puri Sonali hotel. Our experiance was much below the expectation. Though it is located at prime place, its service, cleaneli ness is below average. Maintainance of the room is extremely poor and even you report the same, managment donot take any action to set the thing right.
