Washroom was like 5by5 space.you walk in and it ends. Property is not.maintained properly shows lack of.of maintenance in many aspects. But USP is yes the staffs. However...

One of the worst hotel in Puri. Rooms are shabby. Privacy not a concern for them. Bathrooms are very small. I would suggest to avoid this hotel in Puri. Water in the hotel is saline. The dining room appears to be fish market.Can't talk properly with my family. I asked for a Pepsi ,they said that it is not available.

Sonar Bangla is right on the beach, however away from the crowded market area. The hotel is maintained neat & tidy. The reception manager & restaurant supervisor were fabulous. They made us feel at home.

Stayed at the property in May 2017, we didn't make any prior booking but simply walked in. The front office was very courteous to receive us. The view from the room itself is awesome. Room's are bit small, but filled with basic ammunities. At a distant from the rush beaches in Puri the hotel is value for the money you...

Nice location.....though little bit away from Swargadwar. It takes Rs.50 in auto from the hotel to Swargadwar, Rs 150 from station. We stayed here from 4th April to 7th April. We took AC deluxe sea facing room.Moderate room size but bathroom is small. Nice staff.Nice service. Lift faulty repeatedly. Money worthy for sea facing location.
