Panjim Pausada is best in terms of everything and we can peep in to the homes our forefathers had in past. Very clean. Very well maintained. Excellent location. The S

I had a bitter experience with the taxi arranged by the Panjim Inn management. One particular driver Abhi agreed tor the full day fare of 1500. But after a few kms, started demanding more. We paid the extramoney as we did not want to spoil our trip. I expect the management to take it up with the taxi owner to take care of it.

My stay at the Panjim Inn was very pleasant and they delivered what they promised. I booked my room 4 months in advance and got prompt replies from the Management. I just had to leave my credit card number. I got a roomy and quiet room at the pousada, which is just a few steps away from the main hotel. The staff was really nice, the neighborhood is quiet and the services the hotel provide live up to the rates paid (Rs 2,140 with breakfast). Panjim is a bustling, busy town, like most Indian cities, but the Portuguese quarter where the hotel is located is a nice break from the madness of the traffic and the noise. Therefore, if you´re visiting Panjim, this is the place to stay.

Beds are not at all comfortable, rooms are small....no phones in the room...so had to walk down to the next building for any "room" service. Its neat and clean...bathrooms are good..but we think we could have found a much better place for the price we paid i.e 3 k a night...

Thank you for your review and our apologies for not meeting upto your expectations .
The Panjim Pousada is a 100 year old Goan Hindu home, located in the Latin Quarter of Panjim, Fontainhas . As the house has been readapted and converted into a heritage hostelry each room varies in size and is individual in character .The room sizes are above industry norms and are equipped with modern amenities like airconditioning, cable tv, minifridge, tea-coffee makers and a safe locker.

The beds are antique and individual .Linen and furnishings adhere to industry standards. Before checking in a guest ,we take them to see the rooms available so they can stay in a room that appeals to them.

Being in a crowded part of town and surrounded by a plethora of pests in the interest of hygeine we discourage room service especially as basic requirements are met by the minibar and tea/coffemaker in the room. Efforts are on to have an intercom facility.

At the Panjim Pousada we have tried to recreate the ambience of a genteel Goan Hindu home of yesteryears and do hope the next time you visit us we would have overcome some of the deficiencies you have pointed out.

Yes, a historic building, yes, lovely art, but the whole place is just too chopped up for me.
You may book the Inn, but your room ends up in the pousada down the street. You almost need a map to find your way to the room. Also didn't like the bait-and-switch tactic.
After showing you your room, which is shabby and has a heavy musty odor, they show you a better room with no smell - of course it's considerably more expensive.

The service provided from pre-booking to reservation and providing detailed information to place of worship has left me totally speechless. The staff went an extra mile to attempt to meet my needs even before my confirmed reservation. THE LATTER MADE ME RELAX AS THAT WAS INDICATIVE OF INFORMED STAFF.
My room was very simple, clean with Colonial / Indian decor,bringing back very pleasant memories. It was good to have the ceiling fan as an alternative to the aircondition(which I never used). Rain water harvesting was noted along with Eco friendly light bulbs-GREAT ECO-GREEN EFFORTS. The type of trees in and around the facilities housed varried kinds of birds and mammals. The Indian paintingsand woodcraftin the POUSADA were very remindful of the INDIAN CULTURE.
The POUSADA is beautifully hidde in the alley streets, but once familiarised to the location, it is near to many amenities, depending on the needs of the guest.
Every effort was made by the staff to ensure the guests needs were met as requested. This was especially noted for special meal requests. As a SOLO TRAVELLER SAFETY was a major concern to me and with HONEST ADVICE AND KINDNESS extended to me I felt vey comfortable walking the streets in PANJIM. Also BARGAINING for the taxi was easier.
SOMEHOW DURING MY WALKS I DID NOT NOTICE ANY TRAFFIC LIGHTS AND CROSSING THE STREET WAS A BIT CHALLENGING, HOWEVER IT WAS VERY INTERESTING TO WATCH THE SCCOTER RIDERS AND DRIVERS NEGOTIATE THE HEAVY TRAFFIC. PEDESTRIANS SEEMED TO HOLD THEIR OWN AND MANAGED TO DO JUST FINE.
