Nice location with an average stay.
on Jun 4, 2019
The location of the hotel is good whereas when it comes to the stay, it is not much happening and attractive place to stay. If you are a nature lover then you must prefer a hotel with a comfortable stay with basic amenities. The sheets were not clean and the bed too was a bit rough.
Average hotel in the centre of the city...
on Jan 8, 2019
We stayed there for just one day on Dec 2018 and since our main motto of stay was to get into deltin royal casino the hotel was apt for us since casino entry is walkable distance from the hotel.
About the hotel, to be open I didn’t like the interiors and the facilities at all since all the facilities like AC TV are outdated and bathroom and rooms didn’t look that nice. This hotel needs a renovation at the earliest. If u need a cozy and luxurious stay please don’t consider this hotel and if u plan to visit floating casinos in Panjim and u need a hotel at walkable distance with reasonable rate you can consider this.
Holiday in Panjim 4th to 10th March 2018

Menino Residency, 4th to 10th March.
1)Cockroaches in the room, in the bathroom and on the bed - first day. Informed reception the spay some insecticide. Almost daily at least one cockroach appeared either in the room or bathroom.
2) On the second day after returning post lunch, the room was made up but no towels placed. When housekeeping was called they said we needed to wait till after 3 pm. I refused this so someone went and then brought 2 towels.
3)General room walls were shabby and looked dated and in need of a paint over. The glass windows were externally dirty with bird droppings. Toilet seats and fittings were coming apart. The bathroom tiles grouting were in need of cleaning from the dirt stuck in between them.
4)Lack of privacy and security: One afternoon a member of staff just knocked twice and immediately opened the door despite me shouting out to wait. Later I complained to reception who questioned him without getting a satisfactory response or apology except his stating that he came to place some towels though it was clear that he did not have any towel in his hand. This is totally unacceptable.
5) The air conditioning in the room was very poor and much below standard. On entering the room and inserting the key for the power to switch on one has to wait at least 5 minutes for the ac control ( no remote) to come on. Besides the unit looking ancient, the controller face is damaged and holed due to overuse and misuse. The various menu choices rarely work and the unit keeps on blowing normal air most of the time. On day 3 the unit was just not coming on so after complaining they changed our room to one which was working ( just). This then stopped blowing cool air on night 6 and despite me fiddling with the controller we slept without ac and only the fan running at full speed.
6) Feedback was not requested probably as they knew what to expect, in fact they did not even offer to carry our bags out.
As far as lodging is concerned the Menino Residency is disgraceful and unacceptable. I would not recommend staying here even for free! The only good thing was the breakfast and meals which is something that can be availed of even if staying somewhere else.
Stay at Centre of Goa
on Mar 4, 2018
A well maintained hotel and restaurant at the centre of the city. Reasonable price and good cleaniness of rooms and other paet of hotel. Good food quality. Breakfast items are less, could be more to get variety of food items..
Location is the best part
on Dec 30, 2017
The hotel is located in the heart of Panaji city. Best vegetarian hotels in Goa, Kamat and Nandan are so close by. Santa Monica jetty and some other attractions are walkable.
The complimentary breakfast is so poor quality that, we wanted to have breakfast in some other restaurant nearby.
All other amenities were quite ordinary.
On the second day, house keeping covered a pillow with a torn pillow cover. So this is the quality of linen. AC was getting switched off intermittently.
At the time of check out, the manager was showing us the torn cover to take some money. So this is the hospitality.
