Brand new hotel next to the Kadamba bus station in Panaji. It’s an absolute business hotel, a much better option than the Ginger. Rooms are big enough and bath room is crystal clear clean. Good bed with comfortable pillows. They are using LED lights everywhere to save energy, which is highly appreciable. The complimentary breakfast was adequate with a good selection of Indian & international dishes and a live egg cooking station. Staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. The workstation chair in the room needs to be changed which have a major design issue, if you lean back without holding your arms to a support strongly, definitely you will fall down. The door lock also have some problems, was difficult to open and being a new hotel, I hope they will rectify these minor issues soon.
Unfortunately the internet in my room was not working (room no. 609), I reported it immediately on my check in but nobody attended it for hours despite the assurance to send a technician. Later, when I checked with the reception again, got a reply that the technician already left, so I was forced to use the internet in the reception area (anyway the connection was much faster). The 2nd day morning, again I complained at the reception and the lady assured to send somebody, but same as yesterday no miracles happened. I checked with her again in the afternoon and got a reply that technician is not available being it’s a Sunday and the server is down and the entire hotel doesn't have internet, which is expected to be rectified only in the following day…!!!! What a pathetic situation. If they informed me in the beginning itself that the technician is not available then I could easily buy an internet USB dongle from any internet providers outside, which is damn cheap in India. Due to the irresponsible attitude of the reception staff and the inefficiency or non-availability of the IT technician, I suffered a lot and this situation is not at all acceptable for business traveler like me. However, they rectified the problem by Sunday evening.
Again, the hotel is brand new and highly recommendable except in the case of an odd internet related issue. I will definitely recommend this hotel to business travelers.
If you need a taxi to go somewhere, don't hire it through the hotel because it is much expensive, just go outside and tons of taxis available in the nearby streets.
