My friend and I planned on staying here for 2 nights, but we extended it for another 3 because we enjoyed it so much. The location is very close to the beach, and it feels secluded from the bustling street. The staff is very kind and attentive. Our rooms were cleaned daily. The swimming pool is very nice to lounge...

We stayed four nights at the hotel and really had a nice stay. Some of the facilities in the hotel are of a standard much higher than the pricing of our stay. Depending on your priorities you could find this hotel with super value for money. The rooms are small as well as the bathrooms. We had one room on...

Hotel Gandhara was a lovely place to stay, rooms tucked back from the road to provide a retreat from the ruckus and bustle outside the gates. Inside, the rows of marigolds leading to our room, past a half-shaded swimming pool and a tank of pirañas (the owner mentioned pirana sushi to us, and I hope he was offering a real,...

Gandhara is a really charming place to unwind and feel at ease. The beach is very close and there are rickshaws available everywhere to take you wherever you want to go. But if you want to take some downtime, laze out by the pool in the hotel's pretty garden, this is the perfect spot for that as well.

This is a very cosy boutique hotel next to chakratirtha beach in Puri. The hotel is very clean with highly efficient staff. The hotel has a well maintained swimming pool. This section of Puri is mainly visited by foreign tourists and hence the quality of stay was good. Service was excellent. Pros: Next to Chakrathirtha beach, location is secluded offering...

We as a family stayed 3 nights in both of the rooftop rooms with great view. Eventhough the hotel located at the noisy CT road, the rooms are distant enough from traffic to be not bothered by the horning. The rooms are very clean, there is a immaculate swimming pool, they have very good Wi-Fi and friendly helpful staff. The...

“If staying for a few days, you can ask the staff to clean your room--they do a nice job. You might want to bring along a blanket for comfort if coming in the colder months. Front rooms can be noisy with activity on the street.”
