Welcome drink is given to guests upon arrival. Reception staff helped with quick check-in after a simple ID card scan. On your second visit no need to provide ID again as they already have a copy of it.

Rooms:
Swosti Grand has two types of rooms- Deluxe Room where I stayed, retails for around INR 2500 a night and a more premium Grand Room costing around 4500 INR a night. I will tell you more about the Deluxe room I was staying at.


The Deluxe room of Swosti Grand comes with a spacious king bed, a minibar, WiFi, coffee maker, central air conditioning, writing table and chair, two sofa chairs with a mini table, safety locker, drinking water, letter pad & pencil, a telephone and a fully equipped bathroom. My room had the view of the highway outside. Additional drinks and snacks items can be had on chargeable basis or can be ordered on room service.


Newspaper was delivered to my room in the morning, you can also pick them up from the reception or lobby area in each floor. Financial dailies, regular English and local language daily newspapers are available.

Breakfast at Swosti Grand
Daily buffet breakfast is served complementary to hotel guests at Aqua Restaurant near the reception. Breakfast spread was very good. There were 2 juices, 2 more cold items (milkshakes or cold coffee etc) to chose from, plus cut fruits, sprouts and salads.

Main items included various south Indian items such as Idli, Uttappam along with Poori, Aloo bonda, fried vegetables and so on. English options like bread and cereals are also available. Dosa and such additional items can be made to order, just talk to a friendly staff.

On non-veg front there were only boiled eggs and another fish based item
We can sit next to the window or in any of the other comfortable seating in the restaurant-Breakfast is open from 7 AM till 10 AM
Aqua serves multi cuisine food during day time for lunch and dinner.  Swosti Grand also has two more dining options- Galleria Coffee shop and Oceania bar

Other facilities at Swosti Grand
There's a Gym at Level 4, a banquet hall for events etc. Swosti group also operates Swosti Travels, so they can organize any transport or tours for you if needed.

In summary, convenient location, reasonable pricing and good services make Swosti Grand an ideal stay option when you visit Odisha capital.

Swosti Group also runs Swosti Chilika Resort, Swosti Premium Hotel in Bhubaneswar and few more hotels around Odissa. My stay in Bhubaneswar was hosted by Swosti Grand but all opinions, reviews are my own and not edited/influenced by the hotel
