Check out the Dormitory
on Oct 4, 2017
Be prepared to check into a room which has cigarette butts in the dust bin, toilet seat not cleaned, windows that don't shut and doors that don't open... but it has a bed and a fan and an aircon.. The receptionist has a funny logic as to why the bathroom window wont be repaired .. " how will the toilet smell leave the toilet" he quips.. and what about insects, thieves, and not to mention the potential threat from depressed gamblers who throng Panjim for its Casinos...Hmmm.. its never happened before, so it wont happen.. Did we say Denial is a river in Egypt..
Shocking for such a property to call itself a hotel.. may be the city administration should round up such properties after inspection and set some basic standards to run a hotel especially in a heavily tourist infested city.
And the cute receptionist knows that you would have survived a really uncomfortable and insecure night so he asks you coyly next morning " Wont you be checking out today Sir"
" You are damn right buddy, I am surely checking out"
No wonder it is located next to a pathology lab..

Good Hotel For Business Travellers
on Sep 9, 2016
Stayed Twice in this Hotel while on business visit.Very Good Hotel for all business travellers with economical room tariff.
Stayed in Super Deluxe room which was very specious,neat and clean.All Super Deluxe rooms has spacious balconies also.
They don't have Restaurant as such but you can get Tea and Breakfast in morning.
But if you are coming for Holidays better to stay in Coastal areas like Calangut,Baga,Anjuna.

I discovered this hotel for the fist time in 1998 by accident. I was visiting on an official trip and because of scarcity of mid class hotels i was looking around for a reasonable place for a couple of nights. While walking down the streets to buy cashew nuts i suddenly noticed an entrance next door to the shop to what seemed to be a hotel of some sort, and sure enough, it was!! it looked neat and tidy in the small reception area.. much to my delight. I crossed my fingers and prayed that it would be the same in the rooms. i cheeked out the small a/c non a/c rooms and they were good for a boys wanting to ramble the whole day and return only to sleep. Then i cheeked the came the deluxe rooms, they were huge compared to standard hotel rooms and very good for couples and families. Then came the super deluxe with balconies which i highly recommend. Clean rooms, cleaner toilets/bathrooms and balconies the size of verandahs. I stayed in the river (although you cant see the river itself) facing room. This is a minimalistic hotel with huge, clean, rooms and toilets/bathrooms, with all the basic creature comforts at very reasonable prices at the heart of Panaji city. Don't expect star services, but It gets the gets the job done.
