I was trying to visit Vizag for quiet sometimes. The place is really so beautiful with Hills at one side and the mighty Sea on the other and we needed a cheap, but comfortable hotel as we were on a tight budget. Then came Sonar Bangla into the picture with a reference from one of my friends. The hotel was just the thing which we wanted. We all got Sea facing rooms at the third floor. The rooms were tidy, neat and clean. Though the toilet was not so clean, but the staff cleaned it after some persuasion. The main attraction was the vast Sea in front of us, which we could see all the time even lying in the bed, with plenty of Sea-wind. Bed and utilities were sufficient to cater for our need.

The staff were much helpful. We can't complain about the quality of food. It was cheap and tasty, much to our delight. Housekeeping service was not so good, they always needed some extra persuasion to do the job. There were a few hotels just outside the hotel. The food is good enough by a bit costly. The sightseeing was comparatively cheaper, and we traveled a lot. Please don't go to Araku Valley unless it is Winter season. We found no flowers, but journey was okay. Bora Cave is a must see place.

Good hotel in budget range located near beach. Bengali food and the sea view from the hotel is good. Staff are good car and autos available in front of the hotel. Overall a good hotel to stay.

If you can ignore the hotel condition, food quality of the hotel, if you are going to stay and just concentrate on the location then Sonar Bangla Guest house will surely be your first choice. The location of the hotel is very very good with the sea lying just opposite of the hotel and if you can manage a sea facing room here then bingo....

We stayed for 2 days last month. The view from the hotel is excellent and the hotel services, looks, food and reception are like-to -below average type. Stay there, if you want a very good view of sea and RK Beach and expect only medium tasted Bengali food. The bathroom condition is very bad and we were there after hudhud (1 week later). So no TV connection and intercom was not working. Think to these points in mind before booking that hotel.

The place where the hotel located is very good but as per the services of the hotel, it was not up to the mark. Travelling was not difficult since the hotel had provided pick-up facility and ambiance was quite good but could have been better. The staff members in the hotel were helpful and professional in service and room allotted was spacious and cleanliness was not very satisfying, amenities like AC, TV, geyser was provided. The food served in the hotel was not good in taste, so I had it outside from next day. The destination is really good to visit but the hotel is not worth staying and must improve in overall services.

Visakhapatnam as a city is nice place for travelers. I did book it in advance. Guesthouse was situated opposite at convenient place. Interior and exterior appearance of the guesthouse was normal. Room service of the guesthouse was up to the mark. Room was very nice and facilitated with TV, AC, bed, blanket, etc. Billing and booking process was on time. They did not provide any activities. I did arrange a car for sightseeing. Parking facility was available in the guesthouse area. Sea view was visible from the room. I went there with my family in June month.

The booking of this hotel was done over the phone. There was no problem at check in and check out. This hotel was situated near the beach, bus stand and children's park and the temple is also near the hotel. I stayed in this hotel for 2 days. The hotel provided pick-up from the station. Well behaved staff, but service was not so good. The rooms were spacious, neat and clean with TV, and the beach could be seen. The food was taken from outside. There was no activity available. I visited this place in March 2014 with family for relaxation.

I had been in Visakhapatnam and stayed in the Sonar Bangla hotel. It was conveniently located nearby the RK beach. The staff behaviour was very cooperative. The entrance was fine and there was a dining hall. The food quality was okay and they provided both vegetarian and non-vegetarian food. The room was neat and clean and well decorated and all amenities were also working properly. There was no delay in check-in and check-out. I booked hotel in online mode. From my room there was no view but they have sea view room. They had no extra facilities like swimming pool, indoor games, Gym etc. It was family trip for relaxation. It was reasonable and I also recommend to the normal travellers

When I traveled for Visakhapatnam then I stayed in this hotel for two days with my family. Location is very nice. Hotel is located just adjacent to the beach. It is a Bengali guest house. Food was tasty. Bengali type food and veg and non veg is available. Rooms are neat and clean and spacious. TV, geyser is available in room. Sea facing view is available from balcony. Everything is okay in this hotel. Services are fast. Booking front office is cordial. There are not any indoor or outdoor facilities available. Visakhapatnam is excellent place for visit. This hotel is recommendable.

This place is very nice for visit. I stayed for three days in this hotel. Three days are okay to visit Visakhapatnam. There are many sightseeing places like Rushikonda Beach, Yarada Beach, Kailasagiri, etc. Hotel is located just near to the Ramakrishna Beach. Location is very good. Sea facing room is available. Food is awesome. Appearance is good. Room was neat and clean and spacious. Services were quick. Staff behavior is friendly. Booking and front office is cooperative and helpful. Indoor and outdoor activities are not available. Nothing is for improvement in this hotel. Parking and pick up facility is available. Visakhapatnam place is fabulous for travel. I will recommend this hotel for others.
