I had stayed in Hotel Poonja International about 4 years ago. I chose this hotel to stay again during my Oct'18 visit as I had found it good before. However, it was quite a disappointment. The basics have gone down badly, there are broken taps, towels appeared dirty, had spots of previous usage. The extra bed was too bad with torn cover. Food was average. The hotel management really should work on the infrastructure. There are many new hotels coming up and Mangalore is increasingly getting more visitors. One weird/funny thing. The staff moves around with white apron, who can be easily mistaken as young doctors. I really thought that there is a group of young doctors staying there until I noticed that one of them was actually in charge of house keeping. Anyway, I don't recommend this hotel any more, certainly not for the price I paid.

I had a very bad experience at Hotel Poonja In Mangalore. I was impressed by the pics on their website and the location was also good. But was in for a rude shock when I checked in on 6th May 18. In fact I had booked the hotel for 4 nights but checked out the next day itself.
Firstly, we had booked two rooms and I had directly spoke to their manager Mr Malay Banerjee. I had made it very cleared that we may be 8 adults and one kid. We even had my mother who was a 78 years old woman. He quoted me a price of 4000 per room per night inclusive of breakfast. He even promised me to adjust the amount if we were only six adults as the two other persons were not confirmed. We booked with an advance of 10,000.
But I was in for a shock the rooms were ok, but the bathroom was like a lodge, even worst. The other room was even worst. The sun mica of the door was peeling, the Bathroom door Sun mica was totally wearing out. In fact it was a raw door of wood. The taps continuously leaking and the bathroom Stinking. The beds were chipped off wood, walls and tiles chipped off.
I informed Mr Malay Banerjee about the room and told him it was not worth 4000, moreover we were only 6 adults. Initially he agreed and told us that the room 517 was a Problem and that he will adjust. He offered us the suite, but instead of upgrading he was charging 5500 for the suite. We told him that it was the hotel problem or give us a better room. But he told us that there were no rooms and if we want we can shift to suite at a price of 5500. But as he was not ready to adjust and we couldn’t stay in the room which was stinking.
In the night my niece called up 4 times housekeeping for a bedsheet, but didn’t receive it at all. Their room services and the reception service is pathetic. Even their restaurant has a pathetic service. There was a problem even with our television and Ac. But nobody attended to the same
We decided to check out next morning, and went to the reception to meet Mr Malay. We were initially told he was not there, and then suddenly we seen him leaving the hotel at the entrance. Though he seen us at the reception he deliberately ignored and walked away. The ladies at the reception were not at all cooperative. They called Mr Malay on his cell and we requested to speak to him. But he refused to speak to us and just informed the lady that no adjustments will be done. We felt very cheated and disgusted by their behaviour. We asked for a senior person to whom we wosh to complaint and we were told he was on leave. We asked for contact details of the owner or email ID. We were rudely told to put our complaint on trip advisor.
We were totally frustrated with them and my niece told them just make the bill and lets leave.
We were lucky we got a reservation in Goldfinch one of the finest hotel in Mangalore and our stay was for the rest of the days was good. Was really glad we made this decision.
Please note : this is not a review from any of their competitors nor from Goldfinch. I have experienced this horrible Hospitality from Hotel Poonja.
Would advise please don’t book Poonja it is a Rip off of your money.
