This is the second time that we stayed again in this hotel. It is really nice staying in this hotel for three days. One will find this hotel a bit away from the crowded city but spending leisure on the beach under the tent is awesome. Needless to say, having coconut water along with "Madanamohana"( a sweet item famous in Puri) on beach during sun bath would be an excellent option.
The food at Sonar Bangla has improved a lot as compare to our previous visit. The hotel staffs are very good and courteous
Again only one shortfall of this hotel: the bathroom is really very short.
Overall very good stay and would certainly recommend to others.

I booked this hotel for 2 night for my parents. Right from the word go they had a difficult time here. Firstly the room was shabby. There was nothing in the room that worked. They had to get the TV changed thrice before it even started working. The furniture was old. The geyser did not work even one of the 2 days they were there. The food was below average and the staff extremely un co-operative and unfriendly. My mother even hurt her finger badly while trying to close the balcony door. Unfortunately the hotel staff sent only cotton to stop the bleeding after repeated reminders.
Extremely bad experience. Will not recommend this to anyone.

I stayed in this hotel for one day on 17.05.2013 , Despite paying for an AC Room , the AC was not working and the engineer was not able to repair it . The hotel people shifted me to the next room , but to my dismay here also i faced the same problem . The entire Sunny day was spent without the AC and the hotel people could not do anything . When i was checking out i was presented bill for AC Room , after my arguments with them , they just provided a Rs.300 Discount . It was one of my worst experience .
