Very reasonably priced for an air conditioned room... this could be because the air conditioning doesn't really work. However, apart from that a lovely hostel. A large, spacious room with a comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and always on hand to help. The bathroom was clean.
Panaji itself was a bit boring... some quaint little restaurants, but not much else. If you're short on time... skip here and just head to the beaches.
We have just come back from India where we stayed at the Casa Paradiso for two nights on our way from Mumbai to Kerala. The drive from the airport was about 45 minutes and we arrived too early to check in but the receptionist who initially gave the impression of not liking to be disturbed at 8am let us put our backpacks down for the day. We checked in later and the staff were all very friendly and jolly. Our room was huge with a large en-suite bathroom and aircon that worked although noisily.
Our room was next to the reception so there was a bit of noise from people walking about and talking but nothing too bad although try to get a room away from reception if you can. The hotel is situated on a main road running into Panjim and is about 5 minutes walk to the main areas with plentiful places to eat and shop and plenty of shops nearby for your bottles of beer, wine and spirits.
My only gripe is the noise which comes from the road, aircon and others who like to stay awake all night watching loud TV. Overall it was a pleasant stopover for a few days and in easy reach of the airport, train station and a few local beaches although I wouldn't want to spend a week there.
a bit disappointing after the very positive LP review . I initially got a room to the very noisy street - later changed to a "deluxe room" which was overpriced for what it was, spacious but very basic and still not very quiet because people kept on passing by talking loudly in the corridor. the owner was nice but the rest of the staff was not particularly friendly and gave the impression not to care whether i was happy with the room or not.
Compared to many places in Panaji this was quite expensive but it was clean and tidy, we had a large room with hot water (and a proper shower!), and many of the cheaper places we looked at first were not very nice. Close to the town centre the location is convenient and only about a 10 minute walk to the bus station.
Ok its not a bad hotel, the thing that makes it bad is the price. It is far too expensive for the standard of room you get for your money. The room is bare, and is only worth half the price. Better ones to be had elsewhere.
