My recent visit here
on Aug 16, 2017
Recently, I have visited Puri & stayed in this hotel for 4 nights. The location of this hotel is good, just stone throwing distance from Puri hotel, Only problem is no sea facing room is available with this hotel, at least in the ground floor. The hotel is nice, the staffs are really helpful. They have a restaurant name"Bhai-Bon" which serves quality food.
Great hotel in Good price

Hotel sonar tori is situated just behind puri hotel. Hotel is neat and clean. Rooms are very good. Just 2 min walking from beach. You cant see the sea, but total experience is good.
Attached restaurant is awful.
Not exactly on the sea beach but very close and excellent for family.

It's quite late that I am writing this review. Frankly , before our stay I had no previous knowledge or reports about this hotel.
As things turned out to be,this is amongst very few Puri hotels with online booking and support.So,we booked 2 double bedded rooms for our three day trip.
The best experience which all of still talk about is the cleanliness of this hotel. Be it the lobby,the corridors,the rooms they have kept it spotless.Our rooms were swept and washed daily and everyday the bedsheets,pillow etc were changed (unlike many where you have to shout at the reception).
The basement restaurant offers variety of food . Staff is helpful and will help you with sightseeing and other amenities.
Rooms were good too with usual accessories like AC,geysor etc.
The price is also on the moderate side.

If you are looking for a mid/low range hotel with close proximity to the beach, then Sonar Tori will serve your purpose perfectly. The staff are really courteous, and actually ring the bell and ask if you need anything. The location was a big plus, and for us, so was the food (since we are Bengali), the restaurant below served homely Bengali dishes at very reasonable prices. The travelling toiletry pouch they gave to each of us at the end of the trip ensured that we left the place with a smile on our lips, and a wish to come back :-)
Only one suggestion, the number of staff in the restaurant could be increased (at least during peak season).
