Worse experience. Camera stolen
on Feb 12, 2019
My Nikon DSLR camera has been stolen my the hotel staffs, but now they are denying. I visit Puri every year but never had such an experience. So please lock all your valuables if you are staying here as they have duplicate key.
Clean and Safe.. Comfortable but not jazzy

It is on Gopal ballabh road and behind Puri hotel. Puri railway station and Sri Jagannath Temple are nearby. The beach is at a few minutes walk from the hotel. Auto stand is nearby. Easily accessible to any part of the city. Restaurant is attached. Besides many hotels and restaurants are in and around. Rooms and room service is good.

We have visited puri on last of November and booked hotel sitara on gopal ballab road just beside puri hotel,it is near to sea beach and swargardar.From puri station we have booked a sedan car for sightseeing, it charged Rs 3600 including two days tour of chilka,konark and all parking and station to hotel.The visit to chilka is worthless because there is nothing to see.They will charge 2000 or more for boating in a broken wooden boat with motor.The original boat charge is 1200 including dolphin,red crab and one seamouth or Mohana. But you won't be able to see dolphin or crab. Visit to konark,udaigiri,khandagiri,lingaraj temple are good.but any of these places do not talk to pandas,else they will fool you.At nandankanan zoo don't take guide rather buy bus safari ticket for Rs.60.
In puri,hotel to mandir auto fare is Rs.100 and in beach there are chairs to seat for Rs 10 to 15 per hour.camel riding is Rs 50.Daily food cost for 4 person is Rs.1000 to 1500.Local sightseeing by Auto is Rs.380.Cost of khaja (famous sweet in puri) is 100 per kg.The staffs in the hotel are very nice.5 days tour is enough.Puri express from kolkata is good for timing.
So enjoy puri☺.....
