“Best Hotel in Vishakhapatnam”
Reviewed July 9, 2014

I happened to stay in Novatel during one of my recent trips. Great hotel..specially the location and the view is very good....in my opinion this is the best in the city. The rooms are designed and furnished to give you the best comfort. I checked in very late in the night (like 2.30AM) and ordered food from room service and I was served freshly cooked food which was delicious. The restaurants and the pool have great ambiance and nice view. Enjoyed staying there and would love stay again.

Room Tip: Sea facing rooms are bigger and have great view

Not Providing Break Fast to Accor Advantage Plus Card Holders is very bad and to discriminate those card holders is very bad and we don't expect this type of approach from this supposed to be top class hotel.

Stayed here for 10 nights. Overall, a great stay.
Room had a very good view of the beach.
Bed was comfortable and clean.
I like the layout of the room and how the blinds in the bathroom be drawn up and down.

Room service quality was above average.
I really like the thai green curry (although I found it slightly spicy).

Felt safe staying at this hotel too and hotel staff are constantly greeting guest with a smile. Way to go! Thanks for the kind hospitality. :)

Keep up the good work!

We booked a superior room but were offered an upgrade to a premier room at a discount. The room had a good view except for portions of it being a slum with blue roof top tents. The staff worked hard to find a room with a better view except this time the room they gave had the view to the beach blocked (from the shower area) because of malfunctioning of the blinds. They couldn't fix the blinds and we were too tired of switching the room yet again. The complimentary buffet breakfast was nice and had a great spread. The lunch buffet at Square wasn't enticing for me as a vegetarian - it had a broader set of non-veg options and few veg options. The dining at Zaffron was good - nice live music and the service was excellent as well - also they offered a 20% discount for premier room guests which was a pleasant surpise. SPA services were nice but I believe was exorbitant compared to other good places around. Oh one last word of caution - the hard wood floor in the room was too smooth and all 4 in the family almost slipped one time or the other.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with front view in premier category (just 4-6 of these in the property).

My wife and I came to this hotel in need of total relaxation after spending a month in rural India.
It had all our creature comforts and more.
We tried all the restaurants and each of them was great.
My favourite dish was Coq au vin at The Square.
The pool was great, though a little on the warm side.
Service was excellent.
Breakfast for standard buffet with good service.
Got a hotel car to the airport which cost R1100
Sadly check out was hindered with wrong amounts being charged to my account. R7000 to be exact. This took a far bit of time to sort out at 6.30am in the morning .

Check the Minibar menu and pricelist to see if it has been changed to say prices dont include tax. as mine said prices inclusive of tax. Was not impressed when told I had to pay tax on the mini bar when it said tax included. Reception tried to dismiss as an error on the pricelist. Where I said, I says it is included so I will not pay the extra. Reception took the tax off.

Other than this checkout glitch our stay was EXCELLENT! We will be back!!

Novotel Varun's The Square hosts lazy sunday lunch every sunday. The spread is awesome and the ambience amazing. The location is perfect overlooking the sea. You can also have a dip in the pool. Live music added recently and a wonderful vocalist belts out classic and popular hidi songs. The staff is efficient and friendly. They also have unlimited alcohol option which is worth trying. Special credit to Executive Sous Chef Naresh kumar D. My son got his portrait done for free and was thrilled. Overall a satisfying experience. Kudos and keep it up.

Had stayed in this place for 3days last week.lovely place. Clean and we'll kept rooms. Especially the fourth floor we stayed were really good. If you keep the screens of your windows a little open you can wake up seeing the beautiful sunrise on Varun beach from your bed.infinity swimming pool ,their restaurant and poolside coffee shop every thing has an awesome view of sea.... My god you have to see it to believe it....not only a good value for what you are paying but an experience by itself....
