Me and my wife stayed here for 3 nights and it was an utter diasspointment. The pros and cons are as follows. PROS 1. Located near the Anjuna beach 2. Tariff rates reasonable 3. German bakery nearby CONS 1. Unproffesional staff. Reluctant to take any requests and orders. Very very carefree attitude. 2. Rooms were not cleaned regularly. Had to... More

States here with friends and was kind off perfect in all senses. Food is a limitation, but you seldom eat at the lodging. The rooms are clean, although our ac started leaking water, was taken care off. Friendly staff. Close to the beaches. A big thumbs up and will be returning again.

Clean, small rooms with zero service that are very far away from anything. Booked a car from the airport through the hotel but no one was there, sort of sums up the staff here. Rooms overpriced for everything, would stay somewhere else (which is what we did and found much better value)

Staying in Banyan Soul is itself an adventure in the Paradise called Goa. 12 beautifully appointed rooms with small garden and a huge banyan tree. Modest pantry is available but you will certainly not be eating at your hotel anyway in Goa. Just Next to it is one of the best places to eat in Goa, German Bakery. Open from... More

We only stayed @ the banyan soul one night as Anjuna was dead, but loved it all the same. There's a little route to the beach which takes about 10-15 mins to walk (we didn't get a scooter but the hotel can sort this out for you). The rooms are very light and feel airy as they have big glass... More

After reading extensive reviews of all North Goa beaches, Anjuna was the second choice behind Mandrem as the base point for me and couple of my cousins. Since we could not find a decent hotel room at Mandrem, we zeroed in on Anjuna. After a quick search, I was introduced to The Banyan Soul. Locating the hotel wasn't exactly straightforward... More

Our group of 7 friends stayed here for two nights and we were really happy with our decision. Its slightly away from the beach but the elegance makes up for it. The rooms and bathroom are sufficiently sized and were very clean. The open area in front of rooms is worth admiration. The owner is very friendly and loves chatting... More

Nice hotel tucked away in a corner of Anjuna. All Anjuna hotspots within 5-10 mins. Take note that there is not restaurant in this hotel but then thats what makes it quiet. For the price one pays its VFM for lodging . Dont expect too much and you will not be disappointed. Rooms are fine, a bit on the smaller... More
