The hotel is in very good location view from the room is awosome. Setbacks 1. Highly overpriced@4000.00 2. Cleanliness is a big issue 3. Breakfast was horrible 4. Rules like you can't bring outside food is not acceptable you should mention this during booking. 5. After coming back from sea bath you need to climb the stair. 6. Shower room you need to use after coming back from sea is completely unhygienic. One shouldn't stay here if he have other alternatives.

1 is the bare minimum that I had to give else I would have given negative. I booked this hotel for my retired parents and their friends as it is close to the beach. I confirmed the room via showing the photos provided on trip advisor, however, the reality is totally different. 1. Bed sheets are dirty, full of stains and hairs. 2. Washrooms are stinking. 3. Dustbins not clean, hence, mosquitoes all around. 4. Stains everywhere in the room. Everything is so damn dirty!! Madhu specially and her senior both do not know how to treat guests! No respect at all, when I complained then they said “Nahi hoga return jo karna hai kar le” this is how they have been trained! She said “for us our hotel is neat and clean” and “don’t give us this **** of review” so over confident! I thought HM people are trained to treat people nice, I guess either they forget their training or didn’t get any! No respect for customers or elders! God bless to those who are going here. ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK! Charging hell lot of money for this! Just because they are close to beach! Ridiculous!

Foods are very costly and not worth of money. We heard about that and its absolutely correct. The buffet Breakfast is free but quality does not match with room fare. Excluding reception portion, a light odor is there in common space, the back portion of hotel is dirty and a huge odor is there. They try to manage with room freshner. We are taking food at Hotel Globe Inter National, very close to this hotel Sonar Bangla....and good bengali food is available at 60-65% cost wrt this hotel. Very much specific about check in check out time

This hotel will randomly cancel any reservations you make on online booking sites. Stay away! They know how to make a reservation but not how to keep a reservation. Absolutely terrible situation. If they don’t have systems in place to handle online bookings through third parties then they shouldn’t list on those sites.

I booked a suite here for me, my wife and 2 kids. Right from the start everything seems bad. No fridge in room, breakfast and food is worst i have ever got. This is the first hotel where i am writing the review while staying in it. Room is average. Bed is bad. The only good thing is beach is near. Rest everything is terrible.

Hotel Sonar Bangla, Puri.. To me, it's 'home away from home'! I stayed here for at least ten times and I suggested many of my friends and family to stay in this hotel and all of them had good experiences! The staff members are very good and homely! The view from the front rooms are amazing! The rooms with side view are also good! I just don't want to stay anywhere else at Puri, since my first stay here!

Visited between 2-5 Sep . We took sea facing rooms - perfect view but unlike other Sonar Bangla properties, the rooms are really small and not well maintained. Staffs present ( understand that all are not back ) , are well behaved to be honest and they are trying their best . We faced huge disappointment during breakfast time with stale breads being served - hotel Manager was not available to check what is happening. My email to VP sales got a typical response requesting Pralayda to look into the matter but that’s it !! Huge disappointment when it comes to food management or taste of food - this will not raise interest to visitors unless food is taken care off . Besides the sea facing rooms and the open sea view, it was not a perfect stay . But want to mention one of the staff members Mr Animesh who tried to extend all helps to all the rooms that we have taken !

Hotel Sonar Bangla Puri is situated on Marine Drive Road just after crossing Lighthouse and Hans Coco Palm Resort. It is a very good property. All rooms are sea facing with balconies. Room size is good but bathrooms are too small. Housekeeping is good. They are maintaining covid protocols. Rooms have TV,AC,running hot and cold water etc. They serve complimentary breakfast where you get bread, butter, jam,egg, juice, tea/coffe, Puri, sabji, fruits, one sweet dish. Lunch and dinner are costly as you have to take ala carte and price per plate is bit high. Sea beach is just across the road. The hotel has its own sitting arrangement on the sea beach free of cost with umbrellas. Overall it was a very pleasant stay
