The Chanakya BNR Hotel, at Puri awaits you with the timeless grace of old world charm and all modern day amenities. We give you expansive rooms, tantalizing corridors and well-maintained terraces all telling the story of India’s magnificent Railway inheritance.


The Chanakya BNR hotel has a royal history and is located just 200 meters from the picturesque Puri beach. We are proud to be the only heritage hotel in Orissa as well as uniquely, the only railway theme hotel in India.


Each room, as well as its public area, display rare photographs that convey the achievements of the Indian Railways - one of the world’s largest employer. After evaluating over 18,000 photographs we have handpicked a few for our distinguished guests. We are proud to be the only hotel in the world to display such a rare collection of photographs that leaves one in awe of India’s glorious Rail heritage.


One cannot help but admire the courage of the founders of this magnificent monolith known as the Indian Railways, which was instrumental in crossing great rivers by building grand bridges or supporting the Indian Army during times of war. We would only be fair in concluding that the Indian Railway is undoubtedly one of India ’s greatest infrastructural achievements.


Being one of the famous Railway Heritage Hotels, the Chanakya BNR strives to apprise our guests about the intriguing history of the Indian Railways via these photographs. These historic pictures will greet you in every nook and corner of the hotel and will take you on a fascinating journey back in time. It’s our promise!



After introducing a daily overnight train service between Howrah and Puri in 1901, Bengal Nagpur Railway took upon itself the onus of developing a good hotel at Puri.
