The one and only Puri Hotel. Stayed there for 4-5 times since early childhood. the tallest building in the area. The sea view from the top floor balconies and the terrace is most rewarding. Located in front of the beach , easy access to station made by the hotel's bus services and nearby the Temple too. Service is excellent.

Room Tip: Ask for the sea facing rooms on the 5th or 6th floor in the Annex building of the Hotel.

spent the last weekend here. booked a top floor sea facing room. excellent property location and excellent room position. could see both sunrise and sunset from the private balcony! "sea facing" means real sea facing here. we were in one of the older buildings. the room size was quite large and so was the bathroom. here on tripadvisor, i read the review of another fellow member about the rooms very cramped and the bathrooms being tiny in this hotel. we did not experience so. may be being in the older buildings we were fortunate.

room service was ok, nothing great. no hot water in the tap. rom attendant however carried hot water in a bucket.

resturant is good, but not very good.

there are several areas where improvements are possible and in some really necessary. but, given the kind of tarrif that is charged, i would still say its value for money. i have suggested a few things to the management and sincerely hope they take note of those.

in all, left with a smile.

Room Tip: one of the older buildings. front sea facing rooms.

Hotel is very good. And we like their policy of 24-hr check out. This gives the flexibility of organizing the trip as per convenience. Rooms are nice and clean. Staff is helpful. It is right in front of beach. Also, the night market is like 200 meters from the hotel. and Jagannath temple is approx 3Km.
Only disappointment was restaurant food. Didn't like it much.

Room Tip: Take the room in old building. New wing seems a little weird to us.

If one is looking for a clean, well-maintained, nicely decorated, airy, spacious, sufficiently-lighted room with a panoramic view of the sea from private balcony, Puri Hotel is the address and booking a non-AC / AC room will be the right decision. Travelling with baby is also not a problem here for its prompt house-keeping and room-service. Food is homely and not over-spicy.

Before I write anything about this hotel, i would strongly appeal to all tripadvisor members to be honest with their reviews. I say so because before i went to Puri i had read horrible reviews of Puri Hotel by some members which were totally false. The hotel is strategically placed and is quite near the railway station, Puri Mandir and the main market area Swargadwar. I had booked a double deluxe room and was allotted room number 408. The view from the room is simple breathtaking. The staff is cordial and extremely well behaved. One must keep in mind that its not a high end hotel, infact its a budget hotel and very well equipped for the standard. Loved staying here. The food was good too. Will certainly come back

Room Tip: Dont go for the A/C room as they r not sea facing

This is one of the oldest hotels in Puri and the tallest there is. The rooms are shabby and the toilet unclean. The only good thing about this hotel is the balcony in the sea facing rooms. Very few hotels in Puri offer better view of the Bay of Bengal than Puri Hotel, almost 180 degrees view. Do not expect anything great here cause the rates are still very cheap compared to the new grade of hotels here. Service is just about ok and the food is ............. well not too good.

Room Tip: Chose only the front rooms facing the sea
