Good decent Hotel
on Dec 12, 2017
A good hotel. Well maintained but old property. Low budget. Nice beds. But small rooms. Not good amenities. Near to sea beach. Parking facilities are not available. Interior is also not exciting. But odd check out timing. Confirm before booking.
A pleasant comfortable stay and real value for Money

The hotel is away from the common din. Rooms are basic but clean. It is at a walk-able distance to the beach and the rickshaws take you to the temple.
Has ample parking space and a baby pool. Restaurant serves good food and buffet spread is decent. I would not complaint for the good deal that I got.
An extremely helpful concierge and housekeeping staff.
Overall I enjoyed my stay. The hotel is quite safe and is highly recommended for solo travellers.

The hotel is a good three star hotel situated centrally. The service was excellent and the staff are very well mannered. I have to mention the the airport pickup which the hotel arranged for us as I was anxious as we were only two ladies travelling. The taxi was waiting for us promptly and took us on a tour of Konark as previously arranged and dropped us at the hotel without any issues. Mr. Ugrasen Das, the manager of the hotel, answered my many calls patiently during the hotel booking process.
They have a restaurant. Food was good(we tried only veg food). The buffet breakfast was also good but choice was limited. They also have a panda who can help with the temple darshan.
The rooms were clean and average sized, but for the musty smell in the rooms and very bad sewerage smell in the bathroom. They sprayed a room freshener when we complained about it. The A/c was in good working order and bed comfortable. Do choose a room on the upper floor as the hotel in on a busy street.
A travel desk is also there at the reception which can arrange for the tours in and around Puri. But as only two of us were travelling we took an auto rickshaw which worked out cheaper for us. Plenty of autos are available at the hotel gate and the hotel is situated about 1.5 km from the Jagannath temple. Overall a good hotel.
