Hotel Location:
This hotel is situated in the heart of Panjim on the Dr.Dada Vaidya Road, which is very close to the Panjim Bus Stand (Kadamba) and very to close to the busy shopping streets in Panjim like 19th June road and MG Road and also to the Mandovi river.

Hotel Parking:
This hotel do not provide you any sheltered car parking, you have got to park your car on the road itself which is a major disadvantage for the people traveling by car.

Hotel Rooms:
I have been visiting this hotel since 2004, whenever I visit Goa especially for shorter stays, Rooms are kept good and clean, nothing to comment on the cleanliness of the room as well as the hotel, but the room linen and their curtains really need a change, they remain the same and look very old and faded.
The most important is that there Split air conditioners needs to be changed immediately as they are old and takes a lot of time to cool, especially during the Months of April and May as it very humid and very hot during these times.

Hotel Restaurant:
The in house restaurant is really good. The complimentary buffet breakfast offered by them is basic and good with a mix of continental and some south Indian snacks.

Hotel Staff:
A round of applause to the service offered by the room service staff and I must say that I have been seeing a couple of people who has been working in the same hotel for more than 7 years which talks very high on the hotel management.

Overall:
A clean, basic and a no frill hotel in the budget category.
I personally recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Request for a deluxe room facing the road, the only advantage is that these rooms are categorized as...

The beds are rock hard. You allmost sleep directly on the wooden bed, with a thin excuse for a mattres.

The shower is the best in india. Good breakfast with eggs to order, allthough the milk for the cornflakes is lukewarm. Very friendly owner, and location is quiet but extremely central. Rooms are ok size. TV with a few english channels and daily newspaper.

Recommended.

This hotel is in the walkable distance to Panjim Church, Cruise, Market and beach. not luxurious but very decent hotel for business and family trips. The hotel also arranges for a around the goa tour to north & south goa a very economical prices . Food quality and service is very good. Although the rooms are small but are comfortable enough for a stay where most of the time spent is outside.

Room Tip: select from rooms facing the main street.

This is a good hotel, very close to Madovi river cruise area. It is in the heart of Panjim.

This is a no-frills hotel with simple decor. The hotel is good for business travelers but it will not appeal families on vacation.

The rooms are not very big but functional. The service is reasonably quick. The staff is courteous.

All in all this is a economical hotel for short trip to Goa on business trip.

I checked into this hotel after reading the reviews from Trip Advisor. A big plus to this hotel is that it is just 1 km away from Panaji Bus stand and very near to Panjim Church so its very easy to locate this hotel. The rooms are all AC, 24 hours hot and cold water, mini fridge, TV and daily newspaper. The rooms are clean and tidy and so is the bathroom, though they are not too big. The breakfast is simple but good. The staff is very courteous and friendly. The hotel will arrange for daily sight-seeing and also has a rent a bike facility. The only drawback I felt was that 2 single beds were joined to form a double bed.

I stayed at Menino Panaji on a business visit in Oct '11. First of all, if you are looking for a memorable stay for your honeymoon or vacation, please do not stay here. It is not for you! It is in central Panaji, not by any beach that Goa is famous for.
This place is solely for budget/ business traveler who looks for a simple yet decent, clean room with good service.
The air conditioned rooms are clean and tidy, room service is good. They offer the same day laundry service which is a big plus for a business traveler. The breakfast fare is kept simple with cut fruits, one or two (south) Indian snacks and bread/ toast. No freshly squeezed juice but you will get (Indian) coffee/ tea!
There are good restaurants around, Panaji Church is close by as well. However you need a vehicle to go to the nearest beach. Not to worry, the hotel can arrange you a cab (Generally Maruti Suzuki Wagon R - which is quite popular in Goa) or the you will find the taxi guys hanging around the hotel!
