Location wise Sonali is one of the best, but location never fulfilled our entire satisfaction. Front office is terrible. Manager cum receptionist is horrible (except Mr. Rakesh, he is very helpful person). Rooms are dusty, damps. Toilet is really nightmare. Flash is not working, tap is not working, tv is not working. There is so many not working list But this is budget hotel, so if you wish to adjust, you can. There is four seafaring rooms. All A/C rooms are in back-side. Ground floor restaurant is pathetic. Top floor restaurant is okay. Due to excessive rush and advance booking I was there. Otherwise you must avoid this hotel.
Hotel was nice. It was located near to station and just in front of beach. Location was best. Look wise, it was good. There was a nice restaurant available. I enjoyed my meal in the hotel. Varieties were available there in the menu card and both veg and non-veg varieties were served. Complimentary breakfast was not provided. Rooms were neat and clean. Hot and cold water was not there. Services were excellent and on time. Reception staff was perfect. There was no outdoor activity available. Puri is a beautiful place as tourist destination. I went there with my wife in the month of January.
It is situated at sea beach with vast open area. Well decorated and maintained. Staff are very good and food was good too. But service is not so good. They also conducted local tour. Rooms are good with AC. It is near famous Jagannath Temple and from the roof of the hotel almost Puri town is visible.
Just now I have completed my family holidays at Puri. We were there for 4 days. We have enjoy the location very much. Yet we have visit this please for a few more times. We started our journey by Dhauli Exp from Howrah in AC Chair car. The Train timing was almost on time. I was booked the Super DLX AC room at Hotel. Outside weather was very hot. Anyway we don't get any difficulty. The AC was superb in the hotel. The food quality was average in the Hotel. But have enjoy the food at Hotel Seagull, it was almost chines food, but the cost was very high. Anyway we have enjoy our local trip with a ENJOY car. We have visited full day sight seeing and Chilka. We have made a river cruise also at Chilka, But the rate was very high. We enjoy the beach very much, as well as sea Bath also . My suggestion:. 1. If you enjoy the holidays then book a dlx AC room as per your budget . 2. Book a AC car for local sight seeing not by Auto. If you get a good quality driver then it will be more enjoyable . 3. Be careful about your drinking water. 4. Get food from good restaurant . 5. Be careful at the time of sea Bath . Enjoy your holidays. All the best.
This hotel is recommendable and worth money paid. This hotel was located at land mark of the Puri. It was comfortable place. Hotel staff was very friendly and cooperative. Hotel restaurant was very good. Appearance of the hotel was normal. Room of this hotel was very well maintained and spacious. Beach view was visible from the room. All basic amenities were present in the room like TV, AC, geyser, bed, and a small Bath tub, etc. I had food there it was fantastic with veg. And non-veg. Category. I did not face any problem in check-in and check-out process. Swimming pool, gym, and other extra activities were available in the hotel. They did not organize any sightseeing trip. It was our relaxing holiday.
PAY ATTENTION. 1st The location of the hotel is excellent and well maintained. View from the hotel to the sea is and one can enjoy sitting in the room balcony or shared balcony of this hotel. This is just one reason I rated this hotel with 2 stars. Now the real story is being deceived in this hotel. 1. When I booked this hotel for almost 6 months back, I made myself clear what I need to pay, let me know and according to the amount they have indicated I did the same. In fact, the lady from Kolkata center & also from Puri center they clearly mentioned that I don't have to pay any extra amount and bill shared with me also referred to as "NIL" for future payment. I also said we were 3 people. Over the phone, the lady from Kolkata as well as Puri center said everything was inclusive. Now, when I arrived there, they said that we had to pay extra for the 3rd person per day 100 or 150 if I chose an extra mattress. Fine, I made myself clear by not wanting to go with any argument and we agreed the same and I chose 100 without mattress. 2nd line of the story. As I booked 6 months ago and GST was not applicable at the time and was only applicable last month. Now on the very first day, the manager of the hotel never mentioned about GST neither the staff of the hotel. As I had my hotel booking for 5 days so on the 4th day I wanted to pay the 500 (100 extra per day) but the manager told me that the bill book was not available at that time so asked me to make the payment next morning, so I informed before I'll leave, I will make a move which was on 5th evening. Now on the 5th evening when I paid this payment, he added 690 (12% on room rates per day) and this was never mentioned on the 1st day when I arrived. 3rd Manager of the hotel mentioned, we can do a gesture, you only pay 520 and 170 you do not have to pay and in return we won't give you the original bill. It is clear that this money goes into their pocket. Then my father told us, when we can 520, we can pay 690, so no need to help us by doing this favour on us. 4th Now the Manager started showing his true colors & misbehaved with me. I informed & reminded him of the 1st day but dismissed everything & as it got applicable last & started arguing on this facts. "Sonali company owner who hired this staff with a big hole. Teach him how to behave & also teach him some manners". Okhane boshe daana gojiye geche aar katte na janle apnader customer there harambe. Nahole customer katte lege jabe oi baje daana ta apnar Manager. 5th Well how are they cheating on you? They have different restaurant one on the ground floor where the renter of the room and outsiders can have food and the second on the 4th floor they only cook food as per the order placed with them and only for room renters and not for outsiders. They have their fixed lines and a menu card that is available as soon as you enter the room that is rented. Now that you place an order at the 2nd restaurant physically or as per the menu they will mention you a different price & they will charge you with a higher rate. So before paying the bill, check and place an order with these people and check your bill and make the payment accordingly. We complained about this problem, but the Manager of the hotel told us that we will we will try to take care of the same in the future. What they will take care of in the future, they will not, because that payment goes back in their pocket. So be careful and do not be fooled by these.
Services were fast. Pick up and drop facility was available. Puri place is nice for travel. Location was good. Rooms were neat and clean. Look wise the hotel was fine. Reception was friendly and helpful. I traveled with my family in June month. Food was tasty. Indoor and outdoor activities were not available. It was a relaxation trip. This hotel is recommendable for others.
Last year winter we went to Puri and we were checked in Hotel Sonali. I do not know whether I should introduce this hotel to all or not. This is well known and very renowned destination for most of the Bengalis in Puri. You will just love the experience to stay over there. The location of the hotel is just unique and convenient. This hotel is on beach itself. So unlike other hotels no need to walk good 5 to 10 minutes to get the sea. You can enjoy the sea view all the time you spend there. The service and overall decoration of this hotel is just outstanding. The restaurant is very good and anyone can find his/her choice of food at reasonable cost.
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.
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 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.
Puri is an excellent place as tourist destination. Location and appearance were very good. Booking and front office staff was excellent. Services were fast. Rooms were neat and spacious. Food and drink was delicious. Quality and taste wise, food was up to the mark. Sea beach view was visible from hotel rooms. They had their own restaurant. Whenever you required anything, they served you quickly. Activities were very fine in this hotel. I went there with my family in the month of December 2013.
Overall my experience in the hotel was good. I had no problem to find this hotel. My stay was for five days in the hotel. Check-in and check-out facility was not delayed. Hotel was situated near to the beach. Services were fully satisfactory. I visited there with my family. Restaurant facility was available in the hotel but it was costly. Indoor and outdoor games were not available in the hotel. I took my food from outside. Cab facility was arranged by me for sightseeing trip. I booked non AC room there. TV, geyser and intercom were available in the room. Puri place is lovely destination for outing.
The location of the hotel was good. The parking facility was not provided at the hotel. The staff behaviour was very nice and helpful. The complimentary breakfast was provided at the hotel. The bus stand was nearby the hotel.
