Budget friendly guest house at a great location

Posted 29 Oct, 2017

Stayed in this hotel for a couple of days in the month of oct. Firstly the location of this hotel is just great, very close to ramkrishna beach. The room which I booked was an AC standard room and it was pretty big and clean. AC was in working condition. Room service was awful. Only typical bengali food was available and it was good. Overall we had a pleasant stay and it is recommended for family stay.

Hotel Sonar Bangle Horrible experience

Posted 4 Oct, 2017

Pathetic and horrible experience. The hotel manager tried to hit me when I ask for generator service during power cut. Food was worst quality. The hotel boys are also non cooperative with us at least we expect that they should give a couple of bottles of drinking water which they. Donot ever go to this hotel in your life. Total wastage of money

Good hotel but they need to extend hot water timing

Posted 20 Feb, 2017

I had been to Visakhapatnam in the month of January 2017 and stayed in the Sonar Bangla Bengali Guest House. It was my holiday trip with friends. I would rate the destination as very good. I would rate the location as good because it is at main center. The appearance of the hotel was good because it is clean and neat. The staff at the reception was very good because of 24/7 availability. I booked my room direct at hotel. I would rate the services in the hotel were very good with immediate response. The rooms at the hotel were average. The food which was served in the hotel was good, we can have a large menu of items.

Good looks and good hotel

Posted 24 Oct, 2016

The hotel is situated near to the city and it is conveniently located hence I did not face any difficulties finding this hotel. The staff at the hotel were professional and quick to respond to our service and the surrounding appearance of the room was good. The room allocated to me was spacious and well maintained with all the facilities. I did not face any difficulties during sign in and sign out process. The money which I spent on this hotel was valuable.

Budget hotel

Posted 19 Apr, 2016

Destination is good. The view from the hotel is good. Food was average. Hotel services was not good. Budget hotel - value for money. Vishakapatnam city is a good staying place for max 2 days. The overall experience was good. I would suggest to visit Vishakapatnam in the winter months.

Average standard hotel

Posted 18 Sep, 2015

It is an average standard hotel, in this few rooms are very below standard. So for accommodation is concerned. There is no gym, parks and no WiFi. But location is very good as it is in front of sea beach that is Ramakrishna beach. Foodings is sub standard. No locker rooms is there for one day-night visit near by Araku valley. They charged full charge for keepings bags and luggage. The reception and service is average.

Hotel was located near beach

Posted 1 Sep, 2015

I didn’t like the hotel much. The hotel had not provided the food facility. The activities were not provided by the hotel. The hotel was not worth for the money. The surrounding of the hotel was good. The hotel was located near the beach. The staffs at the hotel were good. I had no problem with them. The accommodation was not good at the hotel. I would suggest them to improve the accommodation. The furnishings in the room were neat but not that good. It was a budget hotel.

Comfortable & budget hotel

Posted 13 Aug, 2015

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 bengali 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.

On the beach with a nice beach view!

Posted 3 Jan, 2014

Right on the beach with a beach view from the room. It's a fantastic hotel. One of the best hotel I have stayed I can say. Everythng was just awesome starting from location to food. We use to be awake quite late to see the beach. It's a Bengali hotel in Vizag hence got awesome Bengali food. The hotel people arranged for sight seeing. Also they have car parking facilities. We had taken an A/C room which had all the basic facilities. The staff were so good and helpful. They took very good care of my family. Overall I loved my stay here. Worth the money paid here. We went to Araku From Vizag and went to all the possible sight seeing place in Vishakapatnam.

Average services; spacious rooms

Posted 30 Dec, 2014

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 ambience 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.
