“Best in Viazg”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

I can't understand why this hotel is still not ranked as number one in Vishakhapatnam.
Hotel staff are among the best i met where they are eager to please guests and to help in anyway possible. room was very clean and had great sea view.
Gym is well maintained and overall experience was excellent.

I have travelled around the world and have been interacting with a lot of Hotel Staff at times i fell they are my extended family.

With all due respect to other hotel staff i have interacted with. Novotel Vishakapatnam Varun has to be one of the very best. The care they have taken is amazing and would be recommending them time and again to every one of my circles to stay here over other properties in Vizag.

Special Mention to R Venkat. Priya who have been more than accommodative in assisting the guests.

It has been only 30 minutes that i have checked in this property and they have more or less compelled me to write this review by their hospitality.

Amazing Staff and all Sea View is just a complimentary to these guys. Great Ambience in the room only downside is that it would be great if the rooms were more quieter as we get to hear a lot of sound from honking traffic.

However it sums it up Five Stars for the Staff. Five stars for room cleanliness and Three Stars for sound acoustics.

it was my second visit to the hotel. I was similarly pleased and satisfied with the services offered by the hotel. the rooms are well maintained, the staff are courteous to the point of absurdity, the restaurants are superb, the front desk is most accommodating, the travel desk is very much efficient. the added safety of having your key card presented to the sensors inside and out side the elevators to open the doors and to punch the floor number is a very thoughtful security measure. my stay was for 4 nights. so i had dinner buffet on 4 nights. if you look at the buffet on a daily basis, they are awesome. But if you compare the menus for four consecutive nights, they somewhat become repetitive.

Room Tip: Try to get a room on the central wing.

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay here. Its a really nice hotel, nice rooms, good buffet breakfast and dinner, drinks prices a bit steep, Food quality is excellent and a special mention for the staff who are at their best all the time. Also special mention for Ms Diotima (Asst. Sales Manager) who gave us a great deal . The entire staff and team of this hotel truly defines the hospitality industry.

Room Tip: Look for rooms that has both the pool and sea view.

offcourse we expect it to be good.. its an international chain of hotels ...but wat was more astounding was the staff... they would genuinely want to make a converstion or genuinely help you out they treat you more than guests there.

one of the best views from the room .. if you r on the bed youll feel as if you are on a ship.

but i think the food is real costly... 6 chappatis is something close to 140 bucks...

excepts breakfast and some buffets we generally ate out. and you can spend hours beside the pool or at the infinity bar... its beautiful... and again the staff are exceptional very hardworking and always trying there level best to make you the happiest...

Room Tip: the rooms that are facing the pool...

Very nice room with above average internet connection speed for India Very good value for money. The Service is very good.
Food was not that great but definitely okay. No cozy bar area for a quiet coffee or drink.
