Hotel Samudra is in my choice is the best hotel in Puri. Superb location, excellent service, well mannered and extremely helpful staff, excellent rooms and well maintained in every sense. We went to Puri and stayed at hotel Samudra in November 2011 and the experience was mind blowing. There can't be a better option to stay in Puri. The rooms are sea facing , neat and spotlessly clean, the service is just superb, you get your desired service within max 10 mins from the time you ask for it. They have all the arrangements for serving you food of your choice. We asked them for some special food for our baby and they did everything they could to ensure that we got the same. We will always go for hotel Samudra whenever we visit Puri.
