We had 5 days and 4 nights stay from 8th Apr - 12th Apr 2019. Overall very good stay, we enjoyed staying at Hotel Santiniketan. Few peak point I would like to mention.. Location - It is just beside Yuba Abash, 5 mins drive from Digha Station on local vehicles (Toto, Van etc) 10/- head - 7-10 mins walk to New Digha Sea, the route is straight, if you take Toto etc will cost 10/- head is easily available outside Hotel Santiniketan. - Ambrati Park is within walking distance, even the main market in New Digha you can go walking from Hotel Santiniketan - Above sums up to great Location without any doubt. Cleanliness - One the most neat and clean Hotel we have come across, specially Hotels near any beach in India are not that clean, but maintain it very nicely, they clean rooms twice once in Morning and once at Night by 8-9 PM. Food - I would recommend to eat at Hotel Santiniketan, they serve homely food at very optimum rate, though they have less options but food quality is great. Staffs & Service - Staffs were very friendly and welcoming, they serve quickly when required. Amenities - They have very basic amenities though, this was the only downside.. We had booked Triple sharing rooms, rooms were bit smaller as compared to usual Triple sharing rooms, due to that you either get a sofa or table chairs, not both which is required to have in a room. Overall I would love to go there again if I visit Digha in near future. I recommend Hotel Santiniketan. Note - There's no sea View.
Nice Hotel ..I stayed here for 3 days with my wife ..Pick up from railway station is complementary which is really helpful but remember we waited around 30 minutes to get Hotel Santiniketan Sumo which is annoying ...Hotel staffs are very cooperative and their food is also very tasty & cheap... Breakfast with tea is complementary which is also very good ..sea beach is at 8 minutes walking distance (not so near & not so far)...but the sad thing is AC remote & temperature display screen in AC are not working due to which it's really difficult to control the temperature of the room..we suffered a lot due to such AC...also once when we returned after bathing from sea beach water in Hotel Santiniketan tank was not there & we have waited around 15 minutes to get the water for bathing ..chicken Korma was superb tasty in Hotel Santiniketan..Anyway overall it's a mixed review ..few things are really good in Hotel Santiniketan & also there are few problems in hotel..but overall I enjoyed my stay ...Hotel is strictly for budget travelers..Do not expect much from Hotel Santiniketan ...but it's value for money & I will definitely like to come again to Shanti Niketan Hotel in My next visit ..thank you for making our stay in Digha joyful ..
I have visited this hotel twice. So, people who are interested for a one-two day tour to Digha, here lies my experience I want to share with them: There is a pick up van for the customers. So this service pleases you at the very beginning. As you enter Hotel Santiniketan you find that it is clean ant tidy and the washrooms are maintained very well. The staff of Hotel Santiniketan are really modest and their services deserve praise. Even the managers at the reception are also very co-operative and comforting. The quality of food at the restaurant, integrated with Hotel Santiniketan, has also maintained its standards both the times I have visited at Hotel Santiniketans. The only thing which might pinch you sometimes is, you have to walk around 9-10 minutes to reach the sea beach but that is never deterrent since Hotel Santiniketan is very much accessible from both railway station and bus stand. Last but, not the least, it’s really a good place for couples seeking solace and quality time with their partners. One small tip to Hotel Santiniketan manager: Please make some arrangement individually for your customers for drying their clothes since after bath from the sea, this becomes very important.

the stay was perfect.. we booked non ac room for 2nights and it was perfectly cool and comfortable..Hotel Santiniketan is just 5-7mins walking distance from new digha sea beach..Hotel Santiniketan manager, staffs are very helpful and reaches out at odd hours also..the attached restaurant serves okish food..we made a small trip to few places in Orrisa at a reasonable rate booked by Hotel Santiniketan itself.. i could have given 5/5 rating.. but the last part of the journey was irritating.. we checked out and saw a toto with driver MOHAN waiting for us..he was gives commission to Hotel Santiniketan..we wanted to go to sbstc stand in new digha which is just 4-5mins away and takes 20rs max..he asked for 50rs which we agreed..on our way the driver intentionally took us to old digha and said rudely that we have to pay him 80rs to return back to bus stand..we could do nothing but to pay extra and return.. i complained to the manager but in vain..so people dont go in such totos from next time.. rest all were fine..
I had an awesome experience in hotel santiniketan.Hotel Santiniketan is located besides ambrabati park and is a 10minute walk to the new digha sea beach.I had booked a family executive rooms for 3 adults and got a cheat deal from goibibo. The room was pretty big with 2 triple beds,2 Acs, 2 very clean washrooms and one 130litres of fridge. I had requested Hotel Santiniketan to put on the fridge before my check in which was around 1.30pm and they agreed without any hesitation. The front desk Mr.Sawapan Das was very well mannered and soft spoken and also gave us a late check out at10am. The restaurant was also very clean with very tasty food and clean dishes.You have to give the restaurant atleast 20mins to prepare your order.The items in the menu are very reasonable priced. All the staffs are well behaved and ready to help you out with any issues.Power backup is always available. I was very satisfied by Hotel Santiniketan's facility and behavious.No complaints.
Booked 4 rooms from goibibo.com. First thanks @goibibo team for making my trips successful again and again. Hotel Santiniketan is a good budget hotel situated near Amravati Park. My experience was awesome with hotel Santiniketan during my visit from 23/01/2016-26/01/2016. We booked 4 rooms for 9 person (1 room 3 occupancy, 3 room 2 occupancy) During check-in time I got free up gradation of 3 rooms by their manger as we requested him to give all the 4 rooms at the same floor. Within 2 hr we pleased with their room service team. They were fast & active. Free wi-fi, pick-up, aqua guard water was good. They have awesome restaurant team, foods was awesome. We borrowed car from them for local sightseeing. All n all wonderful experience. Sea beach distance is the only problem. It will take 5-7 mins by walk to reach nearest sea beach. lastly want to thank their manager for making this 3 days wonderful. We'll visit again for sure.
Well the services over all was great. Rooms were clean and also space was decent as well. Food I would rate as average and was served well with plates, glasses and cups as well. Even liquor was allowed which was good. But yes the only thing which I did not like personally was the service charges been applied to the helper boys as I thought may be that service is usually included along with the room charges. Not only that there is separate charges for different kind of help and service what we got. Firstly we gave extra service charges for servicing food in rooms then separately again given to the help boys. What was the initial charges for then? This I did not understand. Anyway our overall stay was good and comfortable I recommend you to stay there but just be aware of the hidden charges.
I had been to hotel Shantiniketan for 3 nights with my family. It was a pleasant experience for me and my family. Got a complimentary pick up and drop. Room sizes aren't too big but decent. More than the accommodation I personally loved the food served which was adequately balanced with taste and spices. Hotel Santiniketan should start promoting its restaurant as well. One small suggestion please make the menu for complimentary breakfast a bit vivid. I have read many people complaining that service time for food its a bit long, regarding the same I felt that everything was made fresh and that requires some time.So the kitchen should be granted some time in that case. Beach is also 5-7 minutes walking distance. Overall its a value for money.
According to me it is the best hotel at this price. The most important aspect is that they really care for their customer. Other advantages are 1. Free Breakfast 2. Free pickup 3. Very efficient house keeping 4. Helpful workers. 5. Free wifi :D Its really very good to stay and you won't find any problem with the service provided. Workers don't feel disturbed if you request them for any kind of service. My key was locked inside the room and it was 3AM in the morning. I requested them for duplicate key and I was astonished to see that one of the worker came with the duplicate key at 3AM. I would like to thank him on behalf of this comment. At last as a scope of improvement I would like Hotel Santiniketan to improve their interior detailing.

Wonderful experience.. Positives: *Very good hotel staffs with polite behaviour. All the staffs were cooperative. *Very neat and clean maintainence. *Hot water available 24hrs. *Rooms were nicely decorated. *Wifi available. *Attached restaurant with variety food with nice quality. *Walking distance from Railway Station(arnd 10 -15 mins) and from sea beach(arnd 7mins).

As a whole I would recommend this hotel for family as well as stay with friends. Do visit for a wonderful experience. Good day.. Happy and safe tour..!! Cooperative staffs, neat and clean maintainence, calm and quiet environment.
The Family Room given to us (4 people) could accommodate upto seven (7) people, was huge & having two (2) large beds. The Toilet & Washroom were separate. All bedsheets & pillow covers were changed on our request & the mini fridge serviced & put into working condition. Sufficient blankets & towels were provided upon request. The staff were very cordial & were ready to serve & give the best of service. They offer Complimentary Breakfast & FREE Pick-up services. The quality of Food was also reasonably good. Only the WIFI was not upto the mark & the Room lacked a much needed wardrobe. The beach was also about a 10 munutes walk. However, one can't get everything at this price & overall it was a very pleasant & cost-effective stay.
We recently traveled digha & we booked a tripple bedded Ac room in hotel shantiniketan. Now I would like to share my experience in this hotel. It's was just awesome experience. Room was good, clean, well maintained. Behavior of Hotel Santiniketan staffs & manager was very very polite. They are always ready to help us . this hotel has his own restaurant. Foods are very tasty. Restaurant was neat and clean. Overall it's an amazing experience to live such a great hotel. From my opinion hotel shantiniketan is the best hotel in digha for their gentle behavior. Thanks Goibibo & hotel shantiniketan for making our trip wonderful & memorable👍👌👌👍
Accommodation Good , one or Two Chair can add some value. Restaurant is Non AC, fly is s critical issues. Preparation of Food and Service to room quiet Good Complimentary Breakfast to be removed since it is not meet the expectations of guest and restaurants team approach / Feed back to guest for this not good. Last not the least. My personal experience with two dish will not to be ordered, Pomfret curry/ fry cost Rs 120/_ ( 40gm small single pcs Pomfret deep fried and make a curry) Chicken Kabab 10 PCs Rs130/_ size of the plate is lika tea plate, full of onion, tomato,capcikam with 10 small pcd of chicken >10 sq mm
hotel place is far away from beach. hotel staff behaviour is good . hotel is clean and beautiful.their location is away form sea side but the location of hotel is very well.The park is very near of Hotel Santiniketan.Rooms, kitchens are very clean and daily cleaning facility available .So if anyone is going to Digha this hotel may be one of the best place to stay. And the price of rent is not very much high so this place is very much beneficial and economical for all the tourist from rural areas tourist.So this hotel is beautiful ,you can stay, you can enjoy the beauty of digha from staying here.
I booked this hotel for my brother in law couple as a surprise gift. I was skeptic while choosing hotel in Digha. Family stay, Cleanliness and promptness in service were my primary choices. No doubt, Hotel Santiniketan passed in all above. I booked deluxe room with AC for them for three days. The day when they checked in, hotel was fully occupied. But Hotel Santiniketan manager promptly arranged a room in Coral hotel under the same owner. It was a pleasant stay. Thanks hotel santiniketan. Hotel Santiniketan can be a wise decision for all family travellers without a hesitance. -Manojit
Was on official trip to Kolkata for some weeks & Digha became the obvious suggestion for a short trip! Hassle free booking, warm welcome, great hospitality and superb. Bengali food will ensure I remember this trip forever! The staff were so cordial & cooperative. Neither I know the language nor the place.But their warmth always made sure I feel like home. The manager is very helpful. Hotel Santiniketan is pretty neat & organized...room was comfortable & most importantly reasonable. Someday if I come back to Bengal again...will surely visit here :)
I had a stay for 2nights. I can only say Memorable stay of my life. Service person Manik should get appreciation for his hospitality. Managers are also cooperative.Food quality is also very good. They dont charge extra tax on food. rooms & bathroom were clean as expected. view from balcony is very pleasant. They provide Complimentary pick up & breakfast also.Sumo was waiting for us at the station before our arrival. The only drawback is location, its near about 15mins walking distance from sea beach. I would love to Visit your hotel again.
Sntiniketan met my expectations beyond words, being a hotelier myself and having traveled to so many cities in India, I can truly say that hotel santiniketan is one hotel that takes care of its guests. Ideal location for family travelers, clean rooms and excellent food. I stayed at Hotel Santiniketan for one day and didn't have any complaints regarding the service,. Rooms is good enough for a couple to stay comfortably. Overall an excellent experience and even after staying there for one day I wouldn't mind going back.
