i visit Puri at least once every year...however, this was my first stay here. location is right on the beach and is less crowded than adjoining swargadwar. food was good especially the dry chilly prawns. basic buffet breakfast was ok. rooms were sea facing but too small for the price, could have been better. bathroom needs improvement. helpful housekeeping and reception staff. room service is often slow. free bicycles were in dilapidated shape, needs new ones. provides free beach chairs.

Room Tip: opt for rooms in higher floors since hotel has an elevator.

Hi All
I stayed here for 3 nights between 31st May to 3rd June. I would say it is not value for money at all. Situated quite far from Swargadwar after Hans coco palms this hotel needs a maintenance certainly. Stayed in premium room with basics missing.
My room didn't have a proper ac (remote didn't work) and fan doesn't have a working regulator. My kid developed sneezing and we had less sleep at night due to this malfunctioning.
Mornings started with a headache.
Moreover salt water running out of bathroom, shower not working properly and geyser missing in bathroom.
Asked the room boy about ac he is clueless. But the hospitality of the staffs are very good.
Restaurent is not so good food is average though prices are not that average.
Not worthy to stay in the comparison when you have hotels like Niladri, Prabhupada, Sree Hari in the vicinity.

Well here is one hotel where hospitality as a concept is turned around on its head. outsiders are made to feel outsiders . Local language (preferably Bangla) can do magic for you. Otherwise find yourself confined to worst rooms and unhelpful managers.

I visit Puri every year(I have stopped counting after 15 times).This time my stay in Puri has not been pleasant.Room no 303 in Hotel Sonar Bangla is one of the worst delux rooms.small room.no mirror in bathroom,broken cistern knob.no TV signal.sticky floor.salty water.AC remote did not work.For all these I had to pay approx 4k per day.The only good thing was the view of sea from the balcony which was partially occupied with the AC outdoor unit.It would have been better to stay in a holiday home @ rs 600/-.

The "very goods" are firstly location...beachfront, within 50 metres from lighthouse...just beyond the chaotic zone of swargdwar but easily walkable and secondly, every room is sea facing. Room size Standard, cleanliness Average, food Average,maintenance and amenities Very Average. Even no hair dryer in bathroom nor you can get an iron to press your clothes from the housekeeping. Complimentary Breakfast is very poor.... not even a toaster/live omelette counter. Bread toasts & omelettes are cold. No fruit nor coffee/ black tea. Charges minimum 3300/- + gst seems to be high comparing the overall comfort.
