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

Room tip: Front sea facing rooms on 1st or 2nd floors

There is no lift to the restaurant in basement. There is a lift to the room floors. Thet have rooms in 4 bed configuration also. The auto guys charge a high amount as this is far from main town. The rooms staff and food is good. May be a tad expensive.

It is located in beach side only. The surroundings are filled with sand land only. It is very large building may be 4 floors I think so. It offers amenities flat color TV and free wifi, parking and breakfast. The staff is also good and view from this also good ..

Hotel Sonar Bangla is located in front of sea beach. One can see entire sea beach from room balcony. We had double and 4 bedded room which were descent in size with spacious bathroom. Rooms were clean and all modern amenities were there. Food was nice specially bengali cuisine. Breakfast was average and there is not so much variety available. Staff are really good and prompt service. Overall good experience of staying.

Sonar Bangla is one of the premium hotel chains in Bengal and surroundings, but I was not satisfied completely comparing their other property what I heard from my friends and family.

Let’s point out the good things 1st –
Sea-View – excellent, even you are not staying in sea-front rooms, sea is visible from all balconies which is really nice designed indeed.
Location – Beach is on bang opposite and clean comparing other crowded beaches in Puri. Hotel has their own chairs you can use there.
Rooms – are good and enough space inside with attached balcony. Rooms and bathrooms are clean enough. (AC worked fine)

Now come to the concerns –
Water Condition – too bad. Water was too salty and bad smelling, that we used package drinking water for brushing teeth/washing face. I asked why, reception justify, there was an underground pipeline leakage which was due for service. We were 7 in our group and 3 of us having massive stomach upset which ruined rest of our tour.
Restaurant – We had complimentary breakfast and which was average and we had our lunch and dinner there too. The way they kept fruits / salads was unhygienic.

I am not saying it’s worst for staying, but if I am paying enough for my staying in a hotel like Sonar Bangla, I should expect clean enough running water, hygiene food which are very basics.

Room tip: Sea-front rooms / 1st floor and above
