Most arrogant person I have ever met Staff: Only one attend is there. He behaves like owner of Goa. He is the most arrogant man in Goa. Never cares to extend smile or service and rarely speak on asking three four times . Room is good. TV is horrible and makes noise like a DG set. Bathroom fittings you need... More

The only plus this budget hotel is the proximity to Calangute beach, other than that service is pathetic and the staff is rude and arrogant. Stay at this place should be avoided. Me and my friend were so pissed off with the attitude of the staff including the manager who is rustic unprofessional in tackling the clients that we vacated... More

It is situated near Calangut beach, this is the only "Good" thing about "Red Lion". Arrogant Owner & even unfriendly Room Service Boys. Weird Check Out timings....... 9 AM & they charge 300 Rs Extra per hour.

The location is very good. Parking is available, but it's in the open space in front of the hotel. No room service. Staff is not very friendly. Wierd checkout time at 09:00 AM in the morning. Good for people who plan to spend most of the time on the wonderful beaches around the area and less time at the hotel.

There started our agony.Mr.Sanjay is man who does not treat his customers well .Also apparently the place does not have a standard fare for its room. We had to "bargain" for a good price. Finally he stuck to his 1000 rupees per double room and... More

We found the Red Lion after searching 4 different resorts in Goa and numerous small hotels. We could not find a clean room at a reasonable price, in fact a lot of the more expensive hotels were not as clean as one would like. The Red Lion was a god send. The manager Sanjay was so welcoming and showed us... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times and plan to go back Jan 10. It's located at the heart of Calungute walking distance to the beach, shops, nightlife. It has 18 rooms, they recently built new rooms above the bar which are really nice, the rooms have their own fridge and wardrobe with own lockable safe. The Bar is... More
