Had a very comfortable stay last October in this place. The staff are very co operative. With kids and senior citizens along we were worried about early check in, but had a very hassle free early check in. Breakfast was scrumptous. Rooms were neat and tidy.

lodge not a hotel. Positives include the convenient location and very nice staff members. Front desk is excellent and professional. The positives end there in my opinion. The rooms are dated, poorly maintained, not exceptionally clean, and not well equipped. There was no wardrobe, fridge, or kettle for example. My room also had crusty paint peeling from every wall, and black mould coating the AC unit. The rooms are also incredibly noisy, from both street noise and mostly from the sound of other guests. This is made worse by the very heavy doors with no slow close mechanism. All night you will just hear doors slamming. The bathrooms are beyond basic. Mine had a dangerously low fan and a leaking shower enclosure. The included breakfast was a groundhog day experience of the same limited items. All too salty or oily for my preference. The limited daily two repeated options of fruit (papaya and watermelon) were often not ripe. The lift doesn't rise from ground floor, and the AC cant be adjusted in your room as other guests have noted in their reviews. This is possibly part of managements' enjoyment of being in absolute control or to protect their privacy and preferences while living on site. Management have silver spoon syndrome more generally and during my stay were rude, abrasive and bordering on hostile in my view. This included being stared at everywhere I went by the manager's son, lectured on the global hospitality industry by the manager and just generally being made to feel completely unwelcome. The manager himself appears to live (but not work) on site as he is regularly seen enjoying the breakfast or lounging around on the one sofa in reception. I checked out early and went elsewhere. Vizag has many actual hotels. Many with wardrobes, respectful hospitality and hosts with an ounce of humility. Go to those.

All my earlier visits to Vizag was in a particular Hotel. This time my Family member booked this Hotel and we stayed for 3 nights. Henceforth it would only be Pioneer for us. Its a nice Botique Hotel where the owner himself monitors all aspects including Food quality. Even the Staff are courteous, efficient and extend efficient service. Breakfast menu is wide spread & Restaurant is exclusive for In-House guests only. Dinner too offers good veg variety and Non veg items could be ordered with advanced intimation and they dont disaapoint you. Though its in the heart of the city, we wouldn't hear any noise.

I spent 6 days in this hotel with my family. The hotel is extremely clean and rooms are well maintained. Complimentary breakfast has lots of options.Special mention must be made of the idli, filter coffee and fresh fruits. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily.Location is also very good. Only 3 km from the railway station and in VIP road, which offers lots of restaurant options too. All tourist places are accessible from the hotel by taxi or auto.Would stay again in this hotel if I travel again.
