“Excellent rooms on the first floor, friendly staff, buffet breakfast”
Reviewed November 15, 2011

My husband and I stayed 8 nights in Swosti hotel. We made our reservation online, and since we had such a long stay, we got a better rate, and extra's such as a free ride from and to the airport, a welcome drink and a fruitbasket upon arrival and daily complimentary bottles of water. We had to remind roomservice every day of the bottles of water, but we got them eventually .

When we arrived, we were given a room on the first floor at the back of the hotel. It was comfortable, but you couldn't control the temperature of the airconditioning; it was either on or off. There was a fan in the room as well.
The electricity in the rooms on the second floor is operated with a keycard, and there it's possible to control the temperature of the airconditioning. As we wanted to have a double bed, however, we opted for the room on the first floor.
The bed was very comfortable, the shower had plenty of hot water and the room was clean.
There is a minibar and a flatscreen TV, with lots of channels to choose from.

There are several conference rooms on the first floor, so if they are rented out for a wedding you might be disturbed at night, but we did't have any problems.

When we arrived the second time at the hotel after a tour of 5 days, the receptionist wanted to give us a room on the third floor, which was not renovated yet, and a lot less comfortable.
We just asked for our previous room, and stayed there again.

The breakfast is in buffet style; with an ample choice of Indian or western breakfast items early in the morning (+/- 7.30 am.). If you arrive later for breakfast, some items may already be finished and the restaurant staff is a little slow in refilling them.
The airconditioning in the restaurant is set to freezing temperatures, so bring your sweater.

The location of the hotel is close to the railwaystation, where you will find an office of the OTDC. They have interesting daily (except monday) local sightseeing tours ( Lingaraj, Mukteswar and Sidheswar temples, State museum, Dhaulgiri Stupa, Khandagiri and Udayagiri caves and Nandakan Zoo) for 250 INR/pp. and a daily sightseeing tour to the handicraft village Pipli, the temples of Konark and Puri and the beach for 300 INR/pp.
The busses leave from the parking lot in front of the railwaystation, and pick up more people at the head office of the OTDC at the Panthanivas hotel.

Hotel Swosti also has a travel agency and a business centre, but we didn't make use of that.

As for restaurants in the neighbourhood, we can recommend Tangerine (on the first floor of a building close to the corner of Swosti hotel; (open after 7 pm.) and if you are tired of Indian cuisine there is a Pizza Hut next to the Big Bazaar shopping centre in the street around the corner of the New Marrion hotel.

If you don't charter a tricycle, but just wave down an already occupied one, you should be able to go from one point to another in town for 10 rupees for 2 people.

Room Tip: Rooms on the first and second floor are renovated

I stayed in this hotel for 3 days during my visit to Bhubaneswar for a business purpose.
The hotel being one of the well known hotels is very easy to find. The food is awesome. Rooms are clean and very well maintained. The room service is prompt and behaviour of the hotel staff is good.

My overall experience was very good at Swosti.

Worst hotel for stay at bhubaneswar.. Very poor service and poor food quality.. Food too costly also... Would recommend this hotel only if nothing else is available.. The rooms are ok but not so cosy as others in the same range..

Room Tip: Choose this hotel if nothing else is available..
