“Excellent Location”
Reviewed February 24, 2008

Very good location in BHUB; yummy food at the restaurant; rooms could be better; washrooms could be furnished with more amenities. Do not opt for a room facing the main road..

This was the worst experience ever.I am a regular traveller. I travel a lot for work and leisure.I have just come to Bhubaneshwar for a project. I have seen all kinds of hotel, inn, motel, bed and breakfast. But this was the worst.I checked in the hotel saw my room and was shocked to see the room looked like no one had renovated the room for like 30-40 years the bed the bed cover the chairs table carpet fan lights every thing you can imagine was BAD. The room and the lobby had a strong unbearable smell. They have used brown paper in the night stand in bedrooms as a cover sheet on which there were dead fly. The room was in such a bad shape that i left the hotel that very moment. On which the manager wanted to know what was wrong with the room.I wish i had taken pictures of the place so i could have posted here but i could not stand the place even for a minute. MY STRONG ADVISE DON'T EVER GO IN THIS HOTEL.

My mum and I stayed at the Swosti on Janpath from the 2nd Aug to 11th Aug, and we couldn't fault them on service, friendliness and quality.

The restaurants are 1st class... and the talented chef and his team are only too happy to make you special dishes on request, as we found out when we were treated to an Orissan veggie feast!

The rooms are very comfortable, and the pillows soft! The bathroom is very nice and has a good sized bath with shower and hot water 24/7. They also have AC and fans, in case you feel the heat.

The reception staff were always willing to help with any problems or queries we had... only downside was I wasn't told that the complimentary breakfast pertained to the buffet downstairs, and had a heafty bill at the end of my stay for breakfast in our room!

Make sure you get all the details or when and where at the time of checking in!

All in all, it was a brilliant stay... and it's all thanks to our Travel Agent and organiser, Mr Shiva at the Kolkata branch of Swosti Travels. I recommend contacting him via the Kolkata office and he will arrange everything from tickets for flights and trains, to hotels and tours.

Brilliant!

  • Liked — It's central location... brilliant
  • Disliked — The long check-out procedure
  • Tips/Secrets — Instead of heading for the main restaurant, go to the lift and there is another, smaller and quieter restaurant which is more cosy
