“Its a decent place to stay...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 30, 2012

Shree Hari is a decent place to stay, Since its a budget hotel please do not expect prompt service. In addition there to Puri budget hotels have a booking issue. In spite of the fact that in your mail to confirm the booking you would specify the rooms you would want to check into and invariably the better rooms as they are would be allotted to some other guests which might be irritating at times. The food is edible but your choice is limited. However the service quality is pathetic and you might end up feeling that the bed tea you ordered for might finally reach you in time for dinner.On a whole barring the service a good Budget hotel to stay in.

Room Tip: Choose the 1st floor Sea facing rooms or the 1st floor suit..

The best thing about this hotel is its location. A small hotel by the sea, away from the hustle bustle but within reasonable distance from every important place in Puri. It has the basic facilities like clean functional rooms, a small pool, a very small - hole in the wall kind spa, a nice restaurant , a travel desk and adequate parking. Staff are generally polite .But do not expect much here. The food in the restaurant is very average, the spa is avoidable despite a trained person, as the hotel staff keep walking in and out of the spa, knocking the spa door during a spa session !!! My wife took an Ayurveda treatment and the process was disturbed thrice by one man called Nihar, who when I protested, was not sorry in the least. the hotel charges Rs 400/- for a railway station pick up ( which is approx 4 km only). If you pay approx Rs100/- any auto will drop you. When I asked for a free pick up, as I was paying Rs 5000/- for a room per day, they almost had a heart attack. So much for extras! I have stayed in same price (APPROX $100) in much better hotels in Bangkok, Pattay, Kualalumpur, Singapore etc. The key to happiness in Puri is lower your expectations. Don’t feel bad if they upturn hotel garbage right in front for cows to munch! Or if the house keeping personnel count two tea bags and sugar sachets every day as a refill. Overall, you are unlikely to get value for your money.

Room Tip: second floor front facing rooms are having a very good view. we stayed in 211

Had a good stay.
Room was clean.. food was ok but better to have it at dining and not at room .Food was cold when asked to serve at room
Had a small balcony facing the sea..that was nice.
Over all ..nice

The hotel is a new and fancy building. There is a pool. You will be just past the crowds and noise, but still directly across the beach. You will have a little balcony to enjoy.
There will be zero perks. The doorman will demand a tip even when you explicitly tell him you do not need help with your 1 tiny bag. The people at the front desk will be rude and not try to help you,except one young gentleman on the night shift. There is no free breakfast. The restaurant has OK (but not great food) but foreigners are treated awkwardly. I felt like $70USD a night could do better. Service is more important than a new building.

We checked in this hotel on 26th July at 9 a.m and checked out on 30th early morning....We checked various hotels and came back here...We had checked Puri Beach Resort, Dreamland,Sonar Bangla ,Victoria Club Hotel Holiday Resort,Jamidar Palace,Hotel Somudra...But none was comparable to Shree Hari when it comes to the size of the Rooms (we had taken the Deluxe Suit Room number 106),the behaviour of the hotel staffs and the location of the hotel...Everything was wonderful except the Washroom which we think could have been better...the Swimming Pool needs a special mention ,also the house keeping staff and the Room Service was impecable (the house keeping boy "laxman" was very nice and was prompt when we needed his service)..The hotel has its own Panda -Service if you wish to visit the Jaganath Mandir..The sea beach is a mere 50 metre and the sea is maximum 200 metre from the hotel...The view from the private balcony was breath-taking and the food was yummy(although a bit on the expensive side...but its worth !!!) Mr.Tripathy and Mr.Durga was very co-operative and was always there at our service..They specially arranged a Surprise for my wife (on my behalf)because its was our anniversary.. thanks a lot !!!

Dont know about others..We would surely return back to this hotel....Please consider this one...Its worth your money...

Room Tip: Take room number 101,111,201 or 211 if you want a Front Sea facing room...but,,if you want bigger ro...

Its really a horrible hotel. what they show on the net ,it is not at all like that .from inside it is a very small town like hotel with very small corner type reception,horrible rooms,with soiled bed covers stashed in the equally bad cupboard.
We booked through travel guru & immediately rushed out just after a few minutes of our checking in,and didn't even care for the money we had paid for the booking,we simply could not have stayed in this hotel.
Book at your own risk.
We instead went immediately to Toshali sands & were happy for our decision.
