We had a truly marvellous time at Panjim Inn. The Manager Mr. Thomas D’souza was very friendly and made us feel very comfortable. In fact, we felt that we had know him for years, such was the hospitality that was showered on us. He went out of his way to show us around the gorgeous heritage houses in Fontainhas. He patiently guided us to places of interest in Goa and with a smile helped us buy all the local delicacies which we relished on our return to Mangalore. The look of the place is classic with antique furniture. One can’t help but feel that one is going back in time. Thank you Mr. Thomas.
Good location on the edge of the historic district and overlooking the creek. Helpful staff. Room well equipped with all mod cons, but overlooking a pretty busy road, so not quiet with traffic running all night. Good Indian breakfast. All in all OK, but try to get a room away from the road
Throughly enjoyed my stay at this charming & beautiful hotel. I stayed in the pousada, gorgeous room with characterful furniture. Most importantly it was quiet when going to bed, no traffic noises or dogs barking. The staff are helpful and polite. Massive shout out goes to Thomas Dsouza (Business Development Officier), he personally takes care of all the guests. He made my stay enjoyable and memorable. He went over and beyond his role to assist me when I had some medical isssues. Will definately come back!!! Thank you so much. Happy customer from London !
My 5th winter break at Panjim Inn, my retreat from UK winters. For me Panjim Inn has the comfort and quiet atmosphere that I need. The furniture adds that extra feeling of elegance missing from the "concrete and glass" hotels, yet manages to retain a 'homely' atmosphere. The good selection at buffet breakfasts and the restaurant menu is varied, standard of food is good and portions generous. An added bonus is the excellent team who make it feel more like a home than a hotel. I hope to be returning for a few more years.
I’ve been coming to Goa for many years to escape New York winters and have made the Panjim Inn my “splurge” at the start and finish of my time. The hotel never disappoints. From the entrance/reception area, to the rooms, and the to the marvelous breakfast, the Panjim Inn is a gem of a heritage hotel. Each room is unique and furnished with Portuguese antiques. There is nothing of the cookie-cutter Marrott-style—soulless—chain hotels of which there are plenty in Goa. Staying here is like a trip back in time, to a gentile Panjim, where people sat and talked to each other and shared stories. Mr. Ajit Sukhija, the owner, transformed a family dwelling into a world-class, well-managed hotel. Everything reflects his love of history and design. The floors and bathroom tiles are each a work of art, done in mosaics. I’m an artist and so this attention to detail is soul-nurturing. The owner is also a wonderful storyteller and is available to guests who wish to know more about the history of this Portuguese Colonial part of the capital city. I’m always fascinated to learn more from Mr. Sukhija. He’s also a great source of information about local events, medical facilities, and restaurants (the hotel has a charming little restaurant on a patio; a great place to get a bite to eat and a drink on a hot afternoon.) I’ve stayed in many rooms over the years and enjoy the variety and uniqueness of each; but as I get older, and my knees go, I have discovered that the hotel has a room on the ground floor that is handicap accessible. This would be a great place to stay after surgery. I’ll end by commending the staff, who are all friendly, respectful, and efficient. Miss Vaishali and Miss Gauri have been especially noteworthy. I’ll be back before long—the Panjim Inn has become a home-away-from-home.…
