The Right Choice
on Jan 21, 2019
We just spent 3 nights in the Panjim Pousada and were not disappointed we did. The Fontainhas area is the place to stay and this property (and sister properties) is in my opinion the best option. The property is well maintained, the room clean and air conditioned, and there was lots of hot water.
Charming Olde Worlde feel

We arrived from Goa airport during the middle of the day and the staff made us feel very welcome. We were actually staying the Pousada part of the hotel, which is about 50m from the reception where you sign in. The bed was comfortable and the room stayed cool using the fan. We very much enjoyed the food here as well which provided a good introduction to Goan vegetarian food. The location is excellent for most of the facilities of Panjim but does not offer the beach holiday that many coming to Goa might expect. Getting taxis or auto-rickshaws is easy and the staff are always helpful.

My trip to this hotel dates back to Oct 2011. The years have passed and yet I remember this place so fondly,says a lot about this place. This place has charm for a group of people looking for something different- not the run of the mill 5 star experience. It was quaint, homely and very charming. Of course there were hiccups as all heritage hotels do. However it delivers on its promise- old world charm and great food. Back then we weren’t dying for wifi or network. We just needed a break and get away and we got it. We spent 5 days there with our 1 1/2 year old and didn’t feel a day of dissatisfaction. It will always be a part of our special memories.
happy break ..enjoyed the old world charm

I was an unfortunate victim of booking two rooms for two night in this shaggy place.
The rooms were sold claimng "Deluxe" in new wing and Heritage Hotel.
Nothing deluxe, no new wing, heritage hotel(hell hotel)
I recommend no one to book rooms in this hotel for reasons below:
- Heritage hotel is a sham, nothing heritage about this hotel, I have been travelling for more than 40 years.
- The rooms are invaded by mosquitos
-The rooms are dark, half the bulbs were burnt out
-Linens were dirty
- Doors when closed still have a gap of about one inch, no privacy
- Switch for fan outsider the room
- Rooms are located above 24 hour noisy road
-Table is not provided with light to read or use of computer
- Invariably you have to put things on floor as no space anywhere else
-Both owner Jack and his companion(Limping guy) great liers and greedy
- Noise from kids school next door
- Very many other deficiencies
-Rooms are not even worth $ 25.00
