“Comfortable, Great Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2010

My spouse and I usually stay in budget places, but after having a really hard time finding a good place to stay in Vizag, we decided it was time to splurge a little, and went to the Dolphin.

The Dolphin gets every high-end hotel detail right: an excellent service with kind, friendly staff; a beautiful pool; immaculate rooms; and good food at the Horizon restaurant on the seventh floor. (In my opinion the restaurant on the ground floor is more hit-and-miss.) The best thing about the Dolphin were the beds: plush, immaculate white, perfectly clean... a delight after our series of Indian budget places!

One small thing against it, though... I don't know if it was just our room, but the hotel seems to suffer from dampness issues. The room was always very chilly and damp, and towels would never dry at all. Very strange, but not a deal-breaker.

Dolphin is a very good and well known hotel in Visakhapatnam. Located in Leela Mahal Centre, very well maintained hotel. We took a pool view room and room is very clean. They gave a complimentary break fast which is very good and tasty. Mostly andhra cuisine is served. Front desk did not take much time to check in. If fact they saw the reservation and immediately gave the keys and they have completed other formalities at the room itself. It is in the city and beach is about 2 Kms from the hotel. Hotel has excellent parking place. Cleaniliness is good and service is good.

We happened to stay at the Dolphin hotel for 4 days.I particularly liked the spaciousness of the rooms and the swimming pool.
One more thing worth mentioning about this hotel is that it is located at the heart of vizag and hence very comfortable for commuting within vizag.The rooms had all the amenities of a 3 star hotel. Particularly the food was tasty. We used to walk to the beach in the evening time as it was hardly 1km away from our room.

There are two restaurants in this hotel namely Green House
Horizon and also a bar at the basement. The ambience of Horizon was excellent but its cost is relatively higher than that of Green House.

Had a nice experience at this hotel.Service was ok. Staff was cooperative. Honeymooners would be happy as the rooms are comfortable.The swimming pool is quite big then other other problem with the swimming pool is they allow outsiders to use the pool so sometimes it becomes very crowdy. We were really happy with our stay and only the food part was bad.Food did not tasted like ideal north indian food. If they get this bit right it will become an awesome place. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family.

Stayed there for only one day but was very impressed with the service. Since I had been out in the sun, was unwell and was excellently cared for.

The food was excellent too and would definitely stay there if I visit the city again.
