I went to Puri on 12th Dec 2015. My train reached at Puri on 10 P. M. And we have checked in at 10:30 P. M. There was no room service. At that night when we were extremely tired we were waiting for 1 hr to get the extra bed for which charge was already paid during the booking. The room they had provided was worst room I have seen. There was Cockroach and Ant, in that room and was not cleared for a decay. The bedsheets were not cleaned there were lots of dust, wood dust paint on that bed sheet. When we have asked to change that they ignored that and we have to live with those unclean bed sheets. The worst part of the room are the bathrooms. Toilets are not cleaned no separate water tap for toilet. All the water tap valves are broken, so anytime it will come into your hand.

They had promised during booking there will be hot running water but neither there was geyser nor any room service that brings hot water. They are providing the drinking water in those mineral water bottles which are bought by someone and they have left those during the check-out.

Only once in a day they clean the rooms in that time for some reason you go somewhere there is nobody to clean your room though you had requested them several times, they just ignore. If you say that Kolkata office has promised all the facilities, they just arrogantly replied that you do whatever you want to do, they don't bother.

Last but not the list for their mismanagement we were near about to miss our returning train to Kolkata. They told that bus is coming to drop you to the station, so we waited till 7 P. M where our train will leave at 8:45 but there was no trace of their bus and we took a auto to go to the station and at the last min board on the train

Only on the basis of their location they are making their business, please avoid this hotel if you don't want to spoil your trip.

Stayed in Hotel Sonali, Puri in December 2015. The entrance and front office is well- decorated, but the rooms have some problems. The service also leaves a lot to be desired.

First the good things. The hotel is on Swargadwar, so if you want to be in the middle of the maddening crowd, it's the choice for you. The hotel has a travel co-connected to it, so if you want to book a car for sightseeing, you can do it right there. The hotel has two restaurants, one at the rooftop and one at the ground floor. The quality of food in the ground floor restaurant is average at best. The food is better at the rooftop restaurant (though a bit too much spicy and oily for my taste), but the service is rather average. Also, the rooftop has poor lighting, so if you plan to have dinner there, you will be eating in semi darkness.

Unfortunately, the good things end there. The rooms are not up to the mark with the doors and furniture cracked or partially damaged. There was no phone in our room, so calling the room service or reception was a problem. We were in a group, so we used the phone of a different room. The service staff is sometimes rude and often misleading.

Lack of service or amenities (and/or overpricing) is a common problem in most hotels in Puri as the tourists throng Puri throughout the year and the supply of hotels is far less than the demand - so, basically it's a seller's market.

Only advantage is, it is in front of sea beach and top of market area. Roof to room is not good as per rent. Air condition is so poor. Roof top restaurent is also so poor. No Cleanliness after meal & dinner.

Reception man has no response. Lift is not working properly. Only one advantage in this hotel is huge air of sea on terrace.

It's just opposite to Puri beach. Very near to Swargodwar. So you can expect a lot! It's a costly hotel mainly because of their location. The apparent is too good. Front desk is always available 24*7. Emergency doctor can be called (we had an issue). Foods were tasty and served hot. The staff are really we behaved and well dressed. If your budget is good, go for it. Puri is the place to enjoy water sport, so you will not be disappointed at all.

Hotel Sonali is located just opposite to the Puri beach. the location is fabulous .but once you are checked in the hotel, the service are horrible. they have charged me 1900 rupees per day for an air-conditioner room, unfortunately the AC was not working. they have master remote at reception and from there the employees were changing the temperature, water was leaking from the vents of AC, TV was not working, even after several complaint they were not bother to provide the service.

My experience was pathetic.

Highly recommended. Service, staff, room cleaning etc. I will visit again and will recommend to my other staff and all to visit this hotel while being in Puri. Services are highly recommended. Room cleaning as on when required, they immediately addressed and get the things done. Service staff are very friendly and cooperative. So as a overall they are 10 out of 10.

Hotel Sonali is one of the best place to stay in Puri. It is located at the heart of swargadwar. The beautiful Puri sea beach is right across the hotel. Hardly a 15 second walk. One can have a beautiful view of the sea beach from the rooms and balcony itself. The rooms are spacious and well decorated with good facility. The restaurant is also good serving variety of dishes. The staff are polite and helpful. In a nutshell Hotel Sonali is indeed a golden place to stay at Puri.

The destination, location, appearance, front office, service, room and food is good. Their activities are good and the hotel is nearest and almost on the sea beach so at evening and night the natural beauty is beautiful.
