Almost every month I have to spend night in this hotel on business trip. The highlights are:
1. Truly walking distance from railway station, meaning you can reach or leave at odd times just on foot even with family
2. Hastle free booking, check-in & check out
3. Generally clean ambience, lobby, room, toilet ...in fact enetring the hotel from the busy crowded station road, gives a relief
4. Courteous and smiling staff, with good service
5. Travel arrangements, car booking....good
6. We are satisfied with food, complimentary buffet breakfast etc.
7. Lift, LCD TV in rooms
8. Do not expect luxury, but decent hotel offering basic facilities, good for family trip too.

Room Tip: Just tell your requirement at reception or over phone while booking

This hotel is but a few steps away from Platform No. 4 of the Bhubaneswar Railway Station. It is so very convenient if you have just got off or want to board a train out of Bhubaneswar.

There are three category of rooms, a bar and a restaurant. Breakfast here is complimentary and so is the Wifi. I was particularly impressed by the staff and service quality. People here are so very courteous and helpful that will not want to point out minor deficiencies. Yet I have to be honest in my assessment, so here it goes.

The rooms are a bit worn out and desperately need repairs and paint. The toilet should have been cleaner and the floor double mopped to ease out small insects that could have crept in. Also, I found mosquitoes which was quite irritating and easily taken care off with a little bit of attention.

Rooms can be booked online and the hotel offers good discounts on weekend bookings.

Despite the minor hiccups, I would certainly recommend this hotel for hassle free transit and great service quality.

Room Tip: I think the rooms on the upper floors would be the best bet.

Worth for money. We had a pleasant stay there. Room was very clean whenever we enters into it after our outings. Staff are courteous and swift. Their tour arrangement was also excellent for the first timers like us. Front office was really helpful to guide us. Really laudable. Definitely we would recommend to stay here only if anybody visit Bhubaneshwar. Thanks.

hotel is good. peacefull. but needs to look into the complimentary breakfast that they are offering. for last 2 years i am staying in this hotel almost every alternate month. but there is no change and improvement in the breakfast menu. same old idly, bara, bread. they do not keep butter on table. on asking they provides it. they do not keep eggs also. on asking then they prepare it. if you dont know these then you have to survive on idly bara. even the puris are not available in plenty. sometimes they say it is being prepared and takes more than 20 min. sometimes they say its finished. if you reach after 9 am they will say its finish. no variety in the breakfast. to the hotel management : please have a look to the HOTEL BRINDAVAN in rourkela. their room tariff is lower than yours but look at the complimentary breakfast menu. i am not asking you for a other complimentary that they offer but at least change the menu and bring some variety. else u lower the room tariff and kick out that horrible breakfast.

Room Tip: select rooms above reception.
