“Absolutely Classy”
Reviewed August 20, 2012

Hotel Marina is absolutely classy .. wooden floor n all the much preserved wooden beams give it an old Portuguese feel. Its a 140 year old Portuguese landlords villa now refurbished into a hotel.

There are about 6 - 8 rooms (Book in advance for weekends as these get taken up pretty quick). The rooms are quite cosy and well serviced.

Perfectly located - right in the middle of Nani Daman main market.

Their rooms are super in-expensive (Tariff: http://hotelmarinadaman.com/) and in my opinion the best around Daman.

The service is prompt and the food offered is not over the ordinary but still quite good.

I recommend this place if you are looking for a warm cosy hotel stay.

Recommended for Solo, Couples and Families.

Room Tip: Ground Floors rooms are right next to the restaurant, it may get a little noisy. Ask for the upper...

This is somewhere in between a hotel and a home-stay.
It is a huge Home stay with a restaurant or a small hotel where the Owners family also lives.

Pros:
Extremely cheap.
Nice room Interiors with Wooden Flooring
Nice open Space in 1st Floor
Antique furniture - Not very fancy ones though

Cons:
Too much of Rules
Avoidable Restaurant
Bathroom are just clean enough.

Room Tip: Go to 1st floor - Ground floor doors opens to restaurant!!!!

just 2 minutes walking distance from the beach, in the main market. Its a good property owned by one parci family and looks like an old constructed by British. All wooden floor which gives a very good look. They have all AC rooms on the G-floor and 1st-Floor. Restorunt and food is also good.

They have standard rates for each room which is very low compare to other hotels so nothing hidden. I stayed in this hotel for three time and everytime had a good experiance. I will always recomdate this to all and mostly for family.

Room Tip: All the rooms are AC and good.. but would go for G-floor

Wonderful experience of living in a truly antique villa. Hotel is located right in the heart of the city.
Rooms though small in size appear quite comfotable with the wooden floors and antique style furniture. Room service is also very personalised and efficient.
Truly VFM for a family. Highly recommended!!!

Room Tip: Do book in advance for the week-ends are always fully booked.

“Stay in the House of a Portuguese Lord at a price you can afford “ -- the website of the hotel claims and it is no tall claim, mind it! Situated right in the heart of Nani Daman, this 150 year old bungalow which earlier belonged to a Portuguese Lord, has been renovated few years ago and opened for guests visiting by Daman. Hotel Marina has 10 rooms with all the modern amenities like TV, telephone, AC. The best thing about the hotel is the Old World charm it still exudes. During weekends and holidays, pre booking and confirmation is a must.
The sign on the wall of the house says “Reedificada 1861” meaning Rebuilt in 1861.So it even older than 1861!! This heritage house is now owned by a Parsi couple Mr. & Mrs. Tehmten Wadia who also live there.
The hotel has a small bar and a restaurant which serves Chinese and Indian food besides the Daman specialty seafood. The Goan prawn curry needs special mention. In Daman, liquor is much cheaper and the Bar menu of Marina is also no different.

All other famous eating & drinking places are just a walk away from the hotel. So while enjoying all that this charming Portuguese town has to offer, one can easily come back to his/her private space in this quiet old bungalow.
