Panthanivas Puri
excellent view of the Puri Beach, safe to simply sit on the beach and enjoy the calm breeze late evening
easy travel options to Shri Jagannath temple and other attractions like cars to Konark, etc.
managed by OTDC

We stayed for 3N/4D in the Puri Panthanivas last December.. took a deluxe double bedroom.. the room was tidy and room service was efficient.. food at the restaurant was average though.. but overall it was good.. access to the beach was good and the view from the balcony was nice too... the receptionist was friendly and helpful in arranging for the local tours we took..
However, the washroom was not up to the mark.. had to deal with a broken latch.. also, being a govt. run hotel.. i feel the rates should be lower than what they charge presently..
a good experience otherwise.. would recommend this hotel especially for its location and access to the beach...

Panthanivas Puri, located on Puri Beach, from hotel compound one can land straight on Puri beach. Good hotel facilities. Enjoy the beach till late evening even in nights also. One of the clean and safe beach.

Room Tip: Choose beach side rooms

We visited the hotel / guest house after spending a night at 'Yatri Niwas' at Konark. Since both places are run by Odisha Tourism Development corporation (OTDC), we expected a more or less similar service. But we got a jolt. The 'Panth Niwas' at Puri is a far cry. Major observations are:

a. It is one of the few hotel, where checkout time is 8:00 AM. So one must get up very early, eat breakfast and run away, before new guest arrives.
b. Perhaps this is the only hotel in world, where as soon as you enter, there are dirty "URINALS" to greet you.
c. The entry is cramped. There is no portico etc. so if it rains, you will be drenched before you enter hotel.
d. The reception area is very small and cramped, so the family members stand and jostle with other guest, while entry is made in registers (no computers etc.) at reception.
e. Staff at reception is typically "government babus/ madam" eating paan (betel) with least positive attitude towards guest's comfort and care.
d. Rooms are uncomfortable, shoddy, unkempt, dark colored chipping sunmica closets and with open CFL lamps.
e. Bath rooms are very poorly maintained with cracked doors.
f. Rooms sevice is non existent. Bath towels, soap are provided only after repeated visits to reception. Toilet paper does not exist.
g. The restaurant is a good 75 meter away in another building. So if it rains, make sure to carry umbrella.
h. Choice for complimentary breakfast is simple. You get either "Poori + Aloo dum" or "bread, butter, jam + omlette". The quantities are fixed. We just asked for 2 extra slices of plain bread, and we were billed for Rs. 25/-. Even Hilton Hotel will not charge like that.
i. Restaurant is dirty, noisy. No wash basins. A very stupid looking and unhygenic arrangement made of steel bowls and an iron tank holding water, serves as hand wash.

The only positive thing about hotel was a less crowded beach next door to hotel.

Overall a very poor value for money.

Room Tip: Look for other options. You may get many for the same price.

This is a OTDC hotel with the as usual Government characteristics. But this is a very good hotel with excellent location where you can enjoy the beach quietly even in the night also. They have an excellent view of the beach also from the hotel where you can hear the sound of the waves. The usp of the hotel is the value i.e. the much costly Mayfair Hotel is just nearby the hotel. The food is also good and standard.

Room Tip: The rooms towards the sea.
