“Wonderful stay great friendly place in Panjim City”
Reviewed 2 April 2014

Stayed with my family for 2 nights and 2 kids on the visit to my native place.
Roy was a great host helped arrange car from airport and the local travel during this short trip
We had booked the rooms at the ground floor, got two upgraded rooms just before travel which was great.
The stay was comfortable, easy for my family more so with 2 small kids. Rooms were clean
Breakfast was fine. AC worked fine and so did wifi..which we hardly used as we were traveling most of the time.
Roy gave a lot of inputs on local restaurants on our visit to help us manage on our food.
It was like staying at a home away from away.
Thanks will visit again..as i said next year

Room Tip: The first floor rooms have a balcony and good, even the ground floor rooms are good no problem

We were driven into town by a taxi from around Cansaulim Beach, which meant our taxi driver couldn't quite find his way to the Hospedaria. No matter: when called, the owners came and picked us up by car within 10 minutes.
The service was perfect throughout our stay and our hosts were full of friendly and helpful advice. The rooms were excellent and more than comfortable, together with the small balcony. Breakfast was plentiful and meant we really only got hungry again after 6pm.
Location is perfect, since you have the old city of Panjim and the cathedral right outside the door. It's a quiet neighbourhood but restaurants and shops are just around the corner. Incidentally: head toward your left when you step out of the door of the Hospedaria, right into the tiny alleyway; behind a few corners you'll find a wonderful little neighbourhood bakery!
On our last day, since our flight was due to leave around 6pm, we were allowed to freshen up and relax in another room that wasn't needed that day until we caught a cab.

Thanks to Roy and staff for a fantastic 3 night stay. We stayed in a lovely upstairs room with a balcony. It was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Breakfasts were very good and the location is excellent. Roy is very knowledgeable about Goa and gave us lots of helpful advise and recommendations for the rest of our trip. We hope to return one day.

We were checked in efficiently and given a room on the ground floor. The guy running the place is very friendly and gave us a map and tips on where to go.

The room was clean and nicely decorated and had a little patio. The room had AC, a TV and wi fi was free and available in the room. Bed was huge but quite hard and I didn't sleep that well.

It is an old building so there was a cockroach running and lots of tiny ants so ask for a room on the upper floor if you can as I think they would be nicer.

Location is great - right in the centre of the pretty Latin quarter and a stone's throw away from an amazing restaurant.

If you seek to experience the true Goan surroundings, heritage architecture, environment, warmth, helpfulness, at very affordable prices, then this is where you want to be. Spacious, airy clean rooms with Portuguese character. Follow Roy's recommendations on the local eateries and watering holes and you will come back to your hotel elated and wondering how could something so good be so reasonably priced. Get a bike and ride around or Roy can arrange a car for you with drivers you can trust with your eyes closed. As an overseas traveller, this can be imperative, and as a local Indian very comforting. Roy will be your hotel owner, manager, tour organiser and always a phone call away for any need you may have - (Remarkable job Roy - I am truly impressed at your multi talents). All this comes with no frills and local knowledge that a big hotel's concierge could never have. I guarantee you will go away with fondest of memories or like me with a good and trusted friend.

Everything about our stay in this place was amazing. The house is beautifully restored, well located in Fountainhas, and the rooms are cool, spacious and beautifully furnished. Even the neighbours are delightful, greeting visitors wandering past their homes in the tiny lanes surrounding the house. For a glimpse of traditional life, try the tiny family-owned bakery near the house, which still has its original oven and turns out delectable treats.

The owner, Roy, extends outstanding hospitality. He knows each guest by name, and goes out of his way to ensure that everyone is happy. Apart from pointing us in the direction of good restaurants and local attractions, he picked up on our special interests and suggested places and events to align with these. This included personally taking us to some of these places, a gesture that was very much appreciated. Roy puts his heart into ensuring his guests enjoy his house and their stay.

Breakfasts in the pleasant garden courtyard were leisurely and enjoyable starts to the day. Roy made sure that there was something different each day, and we particularly enjoyed the bebinca prepared by one of Roy's neighbours.

A highly recommended option for people who like authenticity in their holiday accommodation.
