“Nice hotel on a german level!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

We enjoyed our stay very much because of the above average cleaniness of the rooms and the nice staff. The pool was nice as well. Food was 4/5. I can only recommend a stay there. It is on a german level :) Rooms are a little bit dark.

ein gutes Hotel auf dt. Niveau! Seltenheit in indien!

Our trip to Goa was from 22nd to 25th Aug'13. We had searched a lot of properties before we decided for Casa Severina.
Our booking was done online and the staff was pretty quick in this to give us a good deal for 3 nights and 4 days stay.
The overall ambiance of the hotel is quite good. It is not really very big, which gives you the feeling of being to yourself and not feel the crowd surrounding you always.

We had taken Standard Boutique rooms, which is quite comfortable for two people.

There is a lot of greenery in and around the hotel - There are mosquitoes to some extent so do not forget to carry a Mosquito Repellent along.

The airport transfer was very punctual, we had the driver waiting for us 1 hour before our flight arrival.

The staff is courteous and polite. Ms. Elita who was at the reception has been a real help to us for all our needs - Mr. Pundalik, who handles the reception at night did a real favour to us by getting us a cab within hours and that too at fair prices.

The highlight of the stay for us has been the cab services which were arranged for us. The cab was not from the hotel but was arranged for us. The cab driver / service owner - Peter Uncle was really helpful to us. Our group was only girls group traveling alone. When we visited the St. Augustine Chapel's Tower ruins, it was a real deserted place. After some 20 mins, we did not return to the cab and he came to look for us - whether we were doing good. God bless him with good health and peace.

Probably the only weak link about the hotel stay was its food. The menu hardly had anything and we had little choice being vegetarians. The buffet breakfast was also not a delight.

For someone who plans to take a trip to Goa and is tight on purse-strings, this place can be a blessing in the off-season. The place has lot of eateries so food will never be a problem.

All-in-all, a good experience to end our trip.

We stayed at Casa Severina for 3 days (August mid). I must admit, We had the most memorable stay. Would cherish every moment. The saff members were so caring and hospitable.

We were greeted with a welcome drink. The check in process did not take time and was quite soomth.

We had booked the pool facing room.The room was very clean and spacious. The hotel is situated at a prime location. It is close to all the famous beaches in North Goa.

They also offer you bicycles (free) or you can also rent a bike for sight seeing. Bfast is complimentary but they can improve a lot alot on the quality, taste and variety.

But for the complimentary bfast, I would most definetly give it a 5 on 5.

We stayed here for two days in August '13. It was a fantastic experience. The hotel is tastefully and elegantly done. Everything about the hotel is heritage. We loved the common study, the water body and the antique furniture. The rooms are picture perfect and the staff is excellent. Everyone, right from the receptionist to the manager were fantastic. We stayed in the Luxury suite and were really treated royally! Its worth the money and we will be back. Only improvement needs to be the vegetarian menu - very limited. All in all, a fabulous experience and will definitely recommend

Room Tip: The luxury suite 'casa andre' was truly luxurious.

We stayed here in March, 2013 as a couple. From the very begining we were treated with a very personal touch, with the GM Johnson coming down himself to greet us, asking about room preferences and helping us with initial formalities. Nice touch!

Pros :
1. Very near to all the markets and the Calungute beach, yet nestled inside to spare you the noise and dust of the main roads.
2. Well maintained and clean pool
3. In-house food was decent, BF menu was decent and tasty.
4. Very pleasant staff, always helpful.
5. Very big rooms, nice and spacious fully stocked toilets,
6. Fully stocked and very decently priced mini-bar

Cons:
1. It's a little inside from the main road, hence finding it initially is a task
2. Getting local transport is also a little pain, though the resort provides you bicycles round the clock.

Overall, a wonderful and relaxing stay at Casa Severina!

Room Tip: Try to ask for pool facing rooms

On our arrival everything was smooth. We had a nice kokam drink and the check in was done in a minute. The room was very clean and well set. We had everything we needed. It was very quiet and nice. The only sound we didn't like was the refrigerator's and the clock's. The breakfast buffet was very bad. The staff helped us with the local transport and stuff but when it came to the checkout it was not very pleasant. At around 10:15 the lady at the front desk tells us rudely with a smile that it is already 10 30 and we must check out by 11. Everything else was good.

I read many reviews here on tripadvisor for our Goa trip. In the end we chose Casa Severina as people had only good things to say about this hotel. All the things that you read about Hotel's G.M Johnson are correct. He is the most hospitable manager in the hospitality business. The hotel is very beautiful and its interiors are very tastefully done. It is not one of those commercial hotels where the aesthetics lack soul. You can tell the management has spent a lot of time working out minute details regarding the furniture and other luxury aspects so that the guests are guaranteed a comfortable stay. We stayed in Casa Andre which is the only luxury suite in the hotel. Check-in was smooth and we were given a welcome letter by the receptionist. Once in, we got a phone call from Johnson inquiring if everything was OK. He said he'll meet us in the lobby after we get fresh. We really liked this gesture and sure enough he meets us as we plan to start our day. He asked us about our plan with genuine concern and suggested we change a few things, to which we agreed. Hotel is conveniently situated in North Goa with easy and quick access to all the happening places/beaches.

The slightly negative thing we experienced was with our breakfast. We are vegetarians and the veg items on all days had excessive oil in them. We did complain on the first day but things did not change and oil kept dripping from our breakfast for the rest of our stay. This was however a very small glitch in an otherwise very luxurious stay. I would recommend Casa Severina especially to couples as kids are not allowed in this hotel. Pool was very clean and temperature controlled, so a thumbs up for that as well. We will definitely come back to Casa Severina for our next Goa visit. Cheers!

Room Tip: Try to book 'Casa Andre', it's the only luxury suite in the hotel.
