“Excellent choice with pocket friendly cost”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Stayed here for 3N in March 2012 as a couple. Had done booking about a month in advance through money transfer to Mr. Dominic's account.

Did not face any problem while checking in even though Mr. Dominic was not available

Hotel is not visible from main road as it is about 300mt inside a street. But plus point is that it is very calm and peaceful to stay inspite of it being just 5 min walk from Calangute bus stand.

It is about 2km from calangute beach and the walk takes about 15-20 min. But i think it should not matter since everyone hires a bike in goa... Bike hiring option is available.

Rooms and toilets were v clean. Thoguh from balcony, you could see trees and gardens instead of ocean. Staff was courteous and helpful

Though it did not have in-house restaurant, they had a kitchen which could prepare quick snacks like maggi, sandwich, juice etc

Overall, we were v happy with our stay at Nikita Residency on such small room cost per night.

Nikita Residency is a good budget option if you want a calm place especially for Honeymooners to stay in Calangute. Its 15 - 20 min walkable from Calangute Beach. We booked a Delux Room and were very surprised to see that we got upgraded to an apartment without any request from our side or any extra charge. This is a good gesture shown by Mr. Dominic. We booked through Cleartrip for 4 Nights (Discounted rate). Further, as we wanted to extend for 1 night more, so we requested the owner and to our surprise he actually charged the discounted rate as compared to actual rate. The room was spacious and clean with the Mini Bar and TV in good condition. We are really thankful to Mr Dominic for the courteous behaviour and making our stay a memorable one. The next time i am in Goa my first preference would definitely be Hotel.

Room Tip: Preferably go for a Delux Apartment.

Dear Guest,

Our apologies for the inconvenience caused to you.As spoken to you there was complete power failure in the whole of Calangute and our generator could not take the load.

As your booking was from Make My Trip,we have instructed them to refund your money.

Once again apologies for the inconvenience caused to you.

I had been here the first time i went to goa.. I reached the hotel by 7:30 and even though the checkin was meant to be after 10 am they let me check in early. I was provided complimentary breakfast everyday and it was simple. The rooms were very clean and the staff were very courteous... It was a perfect stay for me and i couldnt have asked for more. I would definitely recommend the place for anyone looking to stay in calangute

I went to Goa with my wife to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. While i was looking out for a good place to stay, I came across Nikita Residency through tripadvisor. I called and spoke with a guy who gave me the number of Mr. Dominic who's the owner of Nikita Residency. We had a cordial conversation and he just asked for my email address and the number of days I want to book the room. I provided him with the information that he asked for. To my surprise, I checked my email in the evening and there was an email from Mr. Dominic which had the entire package for my visit. One would be a fool to ignore such a package. I grabbed it with both hands. When I reached Nikita Residency, Mr Dominic was personally present to welcome us and the room that he arranged for us was outstanding. The rooms are very spacious, clean and hygienic and the best part is all rooms have attached balcony with great view. The property is not on the beach but the location is such that Calangute is a leisurely 15 mins walk, you can also visit Anjuna, Sinquierim, Fort Aguada, etc all are in the vicinity. His team of staff are extremely well behaved and treat every guest as a family. It seems Mr. Dominic injects a dose of customer service to his staff every day. A warm, loving and friendly person, Mr Dominic is always there for your help whenever you call him. I have promised him, I'll come back again, this time with my entire family and stay in Nikita Residency. I'll recommend everyone to definitely try out Nikita Residency atleast once. The atmosphere of Nikita Residency is very homely and every guest is treated with special care. I wish Mr Dominic and and his entire team all the very best and may Nikita Residency achieve success in all their future endeavors.
