“Hotel Orion”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

I would like to share my bad experiences regarding this hotel & they are as follows:

1. Hotel room services in not up to the mark.
e.g. If you want something you have to talk to reception, reception person tells you to contact room service person, then room service person tells you to contact house keeping. Then house keeping persons will comes to you after 15 minutes oh ! don't forget to remind the reception otherwise it will take 10 minutes more.
Conclusion: Why the reception person are so active (Smart) that they directly co ordinate with House keeping guy & send to your room immediately - But it should not happen. they are lazy.

2. If you ask any helps, you will get defiantly helps but the helps including hotel commissions.
E.g. <1> I asked the reception person to help me to hire activa for only one night. They told me INR 400 per night although I arranged by my self 275 INR for 24 hours.
<2> I asked reception fallow to help me to call taxi from Hotel to Madgaon railway station, the reception guy contacts his party & reply me its INR 1100 although I arranged by my self for INR 400.
Conclusion : Terrible helps (response).

3. Breakfast is not up to the mark.
E,g. Every dal includes so many water, no taste for egg bhurji, Poha was not good. Most things they badly need tea makers for morning breakfast.

4. They are written in their web page that parking facility is available.
But it is 100% false. They 3rd class morning security guards tells you to dont park near hotel you have to find your parking space by own.

Now Good things for this hotels.
1. Everyday Morning house keeping guys (Some sr. staffs) are good.
2. Locker systems is excellent.
3. News paper facility.

Dear Mr.Mistry
with regards Travel desk car charges with dropping to Margoa Railway station which is Approx 43kms from Hotel,no one charges Rs 400/- for Drop.The Standard charges for Non Ac car is Rs 1100/- one way and AC car is Rs 1500/- from Reputed Travel-desk provider in Goa. Still you got for Rs 400/- then might be he is Private number plate car only(and white number plate cars or private car are not authorized to rend service of drops and pick up,if these type of transfers charges are charged by a Local Yellow number plate taxi then we had complaint in local authority. And if you had taken a pre paid taxi cab with drop charges of Rs 400/- then might be you had taken bill also for the same and its really appreciate if you can send us that bills for cross verification about dropping charges.

Secondly no hotel in Goa Provide rent a bike or organised rent bike deals. What ever prices are decided by provider are various from One place to another where rented bike are available.

with respect to Parking facilities its free of cost and on first come first serve basis.And our Security Guard are quiet trained to handle parking problem whenever we have 100% of occupancy at hotel.

i hope above thing are in order.............And Thank for your valuable suggestion for more improvement in our service for future.....

This is a nice hotel in Porvorim which is about 5 kms from Panjim city and about 10 kms from Calangute beach. The room tariffs are quite reasonable. The rooms are pretty much spacious. They have only 2 floors with rooms. The Gym was under renovation for quite some time and was not operational during my stay. I have stayed here for multiple times during the past 8 to 10 months for a week or two on business trips. There is a roof top swimming pool as well, but the same is very small and I guess has been created only for namesake. The room service is decent enough. Food is average with certain dishes tasting good (such as chicken sizzler in barbeque sauce). There is a mini bar too, but the fridge is not cold enough in some rooms. The hotel is clean and the staff is courteous and polite. There are twin rooms available as well (i.e. there is a door in between 2 rooms which they will open on request – it’s locked otherwise). The breakfast is decent with not much variety and daily variations though. They call the hotel as a 4 star one, but it is no more than a 3 star hotel. There is a wine shop just outside the hotel so you can keep buying alcohol whenever you want. There is a CCD, Dominos and Baskin robbins on the other side of the road. All in all, considering the room tariff, the hotel is good.

Room Tip: You can take a room on the top floor and the one that is facing towards the highway (because some of...

The hotel is below average. Rooms stings and very bad in the rainy season. U can get better hotel in panjim or near to bagga beach for less amount in goa. I will not suggest this hotel to any one.The breakfast was horrible. The only good thing was bread.

Room Tip: Try to get the front rooms facing road.

Rooms are spacious and the room service is good. However, the food is over priced and is very average in taste. Hotel is around 7-8 KM far from the famous North Goa beaches - Calungute/Baga etc. It is located in a commercial complex and is best suited for business trips. Not a good fit for those seeking leisure.

Room Tip: Choose a room towards the back of the hotel. Rooms facing roadside are too noisy and there is 24 hou...

For a 6 night trip, stayed here for a night due to its proximity to Goa's capital Panaji, Old Goa and Donna Paula. We stayed in the Deluxe room which has a balcony with a view of national highway of Goa-Mumbai. Do not try the food there as they dont have good staff specially restaurant manager Mr.peter who got lot of attitude problem . Cleanliness good. The only thing that disappointment us was when we entered the room in the night we found smell in room, so we asked for another room and without any hesitance Front office manager upgraded us to next higher category room.Front office staff is very polite and excellent in provide local attraction information.Entire Front office team include front office manager were helpful to me to celebrate my husband birthday on short notice of period given to them to arrange on stuff specially at 11.00pm..........................I believe hotel Management need to think about there food & beverages service department is they want to improve...........Overall is was lovely experience except poor experience from service restaurant.

For a 4 night trip, stayed here for a night due to its proximity to Goa's capital Panaji, Old Goa and Donna Paula. We stayed in the suite which has a hall with a bathroom and a bed room which again has a mater bathroom with a see through glass to the bed room.
Did not try the food here so cannot comment.
Cleanliness good.
The only thing that disappointment us was when we entered the room in the night we see 2 big lizards roaming the room, so we asked for another room and without any hesitance we were given the next available suite.

It was not the same as it looks like. I had been there for 6 nights Jan 2012 and there's nothing good about this Hotel:
1)Hot water for bath! Its not available for the whole day & If you are lucky and can get the hot water, after 10mins it goes somehow warm and then cold...
2) Not near to Baga and Candolim beach at all!! you have to take a taxi and its sth like 30mins to 40mins (depends on traffic) and each time you have to pay 250 to 400Rps (January is the high season & sometimes even 500Rps). Don't forget if you want to come back after 12am the prices are almost doubled.
3) There is no cancellation!!! When we arrived there and saw the poor condition we asked them to stay for 1 night and cancel the reservation, they replied: "You can cancel, But we are not gonna give you any money back"!!!
4)The breakfast sucks!!!! boiled eggs remained from rhinoceros era! No coffee at all!!! there is been sth like coffee but that was not coffee, just brown sweet warm water!!!
5) It was noisy!!! Since all the drivers in here have got a huge tendency to blow HORNS! you have to wake up at 6 cuz the hotel is situated on the main st!!!
