I checked in Room 520 in The Chariot, Puri, Odisha on 28 December 2013 and left it on 29 December 2013. I had to attend a wedding at the Mayfair, where I usually stay while in Puri. This was my fourth visit to Puri. Going by the good reviews, the presentation by the hotel website, I had opted for this hotel as Mayfair Puri was fully booked I reached there after a great difficulty as the approach road the hotel was quite messy and sandy. I could never imagine that there could be a hotel so isolated and so far away from the main city. It is perhaps the last building and perhaps the southern-most hotel or even a building in Puri. It is said that it is nearly 12 years old hotel. I am surprised to know this because of its isolated location. Its distance from Puri beach is not less than 3-4 km. The nearest hotel (or nearest building) is not less than one km. But the positive of its being away from the crowded city is the peaceful and natural surroundings There was a large crowd in the hotel, which may be due to being last week of the year and non-availability of rooms in other hotels in the main city I fortunately got a room (Room No. 520), which had one visitors room, one master bed room with one balcony overlooking at the Pool below and sea beach, which was at some distance and two toilets The hotel has good building, good and spacious rooms still the hotel disappointed me because of its negatives narrated below. The staff at reception was helpful and courteous, the swimming pool seemed excellent, and the hotel not so far away from the isolated beach. The beach is so less crowded though that one will fear to venture on to the beach without being in a group The negatives included insufficient lighting in the room, no LCD or LED TV in the room (it had an old model 20 inch television set on which we could not read even the news headlines), no tea/coffee maker and we had to depend on room service which was pathetic (I ordered bed tea at around 7 am and it reached me at around 8 am and that too cold tea), old and smelly Almirah in the room, WiFi did not work in the room in the night (I had tried WiFi till 2 am; but when I got connected, thankfully the speed was excellent), no electronic safe, no mini bar in the room, no bathrobes and lastly and most importantly absence of Mobile network. If you do not have your own vehicle, it is very inconvenient location. The name of the hotel is The Chariot Resort and Spa, but the spa was missing (I was told that it was under renovation) Overall, not a good hotel for family outing, but could be a good hotel for groups I will suggest that one should not go only by what has been stated by the hotel at its website, but you must go through the reviews seriously and then decide to stay in this hotel
