Hotel Mandovi
Ranked #15 of 48 Hotels in Panjim
Reviewed 7 December 2009

Commanding an ideal location on the bank of the river Mandovi, in Panjim. The Mandovi offers you the most enchanting view of the river and the hillocks across it.
It is one of the oldest hotel of Goa and boast of its assertive place in Goa's history. But it has not been able to keep it with the times. Its good if you are on a nostalgia tour but if you are in the spirits of famous goan spirit/ sprit keep away.
You may be a fish enthusiast but definetly would not like to sleep with your head in fish basket. There is a continuous lingering fishy smell ( thanks to the location of kitchen or bad ventilation) even in the rooms.
The linen in rooms is usually worn out , the mattresses foam hard and breaking the floor in sticky if you happen to walk naked foot.
The view of mandovi is good but you have to keep standing on the window. You cant savour it sitting in chairs or in the bed

The nearest Beach, Miramar is filthy. There are shops, Specialty restaurants, local eateries, entertainment centre's, pubs, government offices, commercial center, places of tourist interest and a river cruise jetty within its vicinity.
Thsi makes it look, most suited for stay but it spoils your day. The break fast is also not good. There are many good hotel with which it has failed to compete in Panjim.
Mandovi is a 3 star hotel but barely looks like one.
All rooms have central air-conditioning, wall-to-wall carpets wich is mushy attached baths with faulty showers, C.C.TV and direct STD dialing facility.

Situated on main road in Panaji facing mandovi and evening boat ferries, hotel has modernised to be renovated but ample space in lobby is still a question.
Restaurant is nice with a good tequilla drink available at night.
Rooms are good and hotel is as good as in the market area.
Conveyance easily available.
