Bengaluru, India142 contributions75 helpful votes
This property is located in heart of the city.The front reception staff,restaurent staff and housekeeping staff are very courteous and helpful.Check in took 5 mins time.FULL PROPERTY is sanitized at regular intervals.All people follow the mask rule strictly.
They allow free late check out at 2 pm.instead of 12 pm as our flights were rescheduled by airlines.they also provided boarding pass printout.But when they arranged hot milk for my kid at 11.40pm that won our hearts.
Swimming pool and gym are well maintained and no restrcitiona on them due to Covid.The buffet is served at the table for breakfast.The ala carte menu is bit costly but the portion and taste is wonderful.
Bathroom is bit small and mini bar is empty.
Once you are leaving room for sight seeing just call them and they will clean up your room.
Indusind bank atm is bang opposite to the hotel.
Hdfc and IDBI is located within 1 km from hotel.
Auto stand is just outside the gates or you can book Ola as well for roaming around.
Staff is cooperative thats people will love to come back again and again.This property is very old but still very well maintained.

I had booked the hotel seeing the review from makemytrip. The hotel is well decorated, courteous staff, clean and hygienic rooms. Really loved the service provided. One thing to mention separately, my baby is below 2 year old who just recovering from food infection was not allowed to have any outside food. Hence, I traveled with food items and utensils for her separately. When I have asked hotel staff to help me prepare that food by steaming the item they ensured out of the box service which is commendable. They were always there for any assistance required through out my stay. Really loved the experience and shall be back again. Also, shall recommend my near ones to visit while anyone travel to Vizag in future. Food is also awesome with number of cuisines to choice from. Giving 5 out of 5.. Kudos to team.. keep it up..

The hotel is located at a prime location inside the city with ample parking space.
Hospitality is very good right from the check-in to checkout. Nothing to complaint,just loved it overall.
Staffs were so friendly and caring. All the COVID protocols were followed diligently
There is a big swimming pool to engage kids and infants. Complimentary breakfast had loads of varieties and tasted excellent.
Highly recommended for family travellers looking for a luxury stay.

Stayed at this place for 2 nights. The location is so so, since there are better located hotels in the same range. The reception was very good. The staff is very courteous. The room size and facilities provided are also very good. The B/Fast was a good spread , so also the Dinner at their roof top restra called Horizon, where we had chinese food which was tastyn adequate in quantity although the noise level in the restra due to live band was very high. Overall a good experience and value for money but will try similar hotels next time. I had booked this hotel based on inputs from friends that it is one of the oldest and good hotels. The only disgusting and nauseating part was seeing guests jumping in the pool with hair and beard open in their night suits. A awaful sight . Since we all are aware how most of us behave when we stay in hotels, the management must strictly ensure that only guest in proper swim suits and after proper shower are allowed to enter the pool. Here , I felt the management failed badly.

Words are less to explicate my words for this wonderful hospitality I received in Dolphin Hotel!! Its a must stay place for any one coming to Vizag with friends or family!!
Located very near to the rail station.
Right from the whatsapp checkin by assisted by Shabaz, where I didn’t have to wait at counter for keys. Mr. Mani, Mr. Shiva were too kind as well all the while right from our seating for New year’s eve to ordering customised food depending on our preferences!
Above all, the entire show was run by Mr. Ram Krishna, the General Manager at the instructions of whose, the stay was more than comfortable. Splendid is the word!!
They even decorated and provided a delicious butterscotch chocolate cake endured by all.
The GM, Banquet Manager and others have been working here past three decades which shows their curative command here!!
