“Nothing to mention except its view”
Reviewed November 30, 2013

I stayed in this hotel from 23rd November,2013 for 2 nights. Heard a lot about the hotel; but hotel accommodation is a big disappointment for me. They are charging Rs 1200 (+ 7% service charge+ 10% Tax, a total of 1400) for a non-ac sea view room. When we reached there, they provided us an AC room without the ac service. The room is on 3rd floor (Room No.-226). The room is in horrible condition; We just sacred of that, if its the condition of an AC room, what else would be the condition in the non-ac rooms. The room has old fashioned television, broken switch boards and definitely not worth of Rs 1400. You can get 100times better rooms in the neighboring hotel, Hotel Seagull, in the same price.

One only positive and most important thing of the rooms is the sea-view and the location of the hotel. Those who are thinking of availing the hotel, my recommendation will be, think twice.

This hotel is situated at a very good location, the beach is just nearby. One can take sea facing room for enjoying the sea beach from the balcony. We took sea facing AC room. The room and the attach bathroom was clean. But the quality of the restaurant was not good enough. We took our meal and breakfast from the nearby hotel. The restaurant of PURI HOTEL is awesome.

Room Tip: Sea facing AC rooms are good.

The hotel is situated on the Swargadwar Road, opposite to the statue of Sri Chaitanya Mahaprabhu and less than 1 min walking distance of Bharat Sevashram Sangha and main market. It has the locational advantage as it is just on the busy road as well as sea beach. It has two buildings. Most of the rooms in the front building are either sea-facing or partially sea facing. However, rooms in the eastern side are better because on the other side due to other high rise the view of the sea is like a line. Hotel management try utmost care to keep the hotel clean. Every morning they come for room n toilet cleaning but within afternoon the entire building get the dirty look because many boarders step directly into the hotel after having bath in the sea. The main problem we faced in this hotel is that, there was no elevator. Another common thing in all the hotels of Swargadwar Road are, they do not accept credit cards. So better to keep hard cash. We booked two AC side sea facing rooms in the front building which cost 1500 each. All the sea facing rooms are non-AC which I disliked. Due to some technical fault we could not run the ACs between 4 to 8 in the evening. Food is chargeable but quality is good and delicious. Apart from that which I disliked most is that while departing from the hotel all the support staffs almost attacked us for the tip.
