Comfort level increased
on Dec 19, 2017
First of all let me clarify something. Hotel Shakuntala and Hotel Shakuntala Palace are two different hotels although under same ownership. Hotel Shakuntala is right opposite to the sea beach and the palace one in an alley next to Puri Hotel.
This is probably my fourth stay at Hotel Shakuntala, the difference is that this time we were traveling with my one year old daughter. Check in process was real smooth, the hotel manager as well as the assistants were courteous. The location of the hotel is fantastic. I stayed in room 302 which is a sea facing one, you actually can view the sea sitting on your bed.
The room was big, with all basic amenities ( as per Puri standard). They clean your room twice a day which is pretty good.
If you are traveling with your kid, the hotel helps you with all proper customized food.
Very much recommended.

Behaviour of the manager is very very bad.If u are travelling with your baby then would request u not to stay in this hotel as they don't have any sympathy or minimum curtsy with any one.Room tariff is also very high comparing with quality.There are lots of similar hotels available with low budget."NO" is their common word and their manager is very much expert in telling LIE.Hotel is located near to beach area.If u r thinking for room in high paid money,then this hotel is ok.I shall never ever stay in this hotel again,if require I will cancel my trip.
Decent stay at reasonable rates

This hotel may not be exactly on the beach but it is just 2 minutes walk from the golden beach of puri. Located just behind Puri hotel, the location is the best thing about this hotel. The charges were pretty decent and the staff behavior was also okay. Do not expect over-courteous staff as you would hardly get that in any of the hotels of Puri in that area. The hotel has ample space for car parking and has a good restaurant as well. I will possible go back there again.
Wonderful rooms with brilliant sea view
on Oct 1, 2016
This is a very decent hotel with wonderful rooms with 4 on the front side having brilliant sea views. The sea beach is just opposite to the hotel if you get the above mentioned rooms you can relax and enjoy the sea from your room itself. The food served in the hotel is really delicious and almost home made. This was my 2nd stay in the hotel and definitely enjoyed it.
