Always nice to find a quiet oasis in a bustling city! We are on a year long RTW trip, and these gems are rare. (read more about it at www.changesinlongitude.com). Also worth noting that Hotel Puri is a completely smoke-free property.
We had a deluxe double in the newer wing, which was large and well-equipped, with lots of nice amenities. Bathroom was fine, except shower was built into an odd corner which had a big wedge carved out for ductwork or something. This made the shower quite small, requiring some creative use of elbows when washing your hair. Too bad toilet was built adjacent, because there really was enough room to make the shower larger.
Breakfast was a nice buffet, also eggs cooked to order. Spa was pretty, with good massage, but the prices were a little on the high side for this part of the world.
Loved the antiques scattered everywhere, and the multiple courtyards. Always easy to find a quiet place to read or access wifi.
