What a great experience it was to stay at Afonso Guest House! After 4 months traveling around South East Asia and India, all my boyfriend and I wanted to do was stay at a nice place, relax and enjoy peacefully. And that´s what we could do here! Clifton is a very cheerful and charismatic person, always smiling and willing to help, so is the rest of his lovely family. The Guest House is a renovated house, painted in different pale colours, very cozy and quiet. It has a nice terrace for breakfast, which is not included in the price but is extra-cheap and it was my partner´s favourite, as he said.. The rooms are very clean, fan doesn´t work much, but complimentary AC for a couple of hours did the trick. It is very well located, in one of the nicest neighbourhoods we walked around while in Panaji, and walking distance from almost everywhere. Would definitely recommend this place!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Afonso Guest House, run by Panaji's reputed Afonso family, is more than just a guest house to its many patrons. Nestled in the capital city's quaint Latin quarter of Fontainhas, it is a veritable bridge between Goa's Portuguese past and Indian present. A favoured haunt for many an adventurous traveller for over three decades, its hospitality and peppy spirit show no sign of aging and are still as fresh as they were back then. It makes no pretense of being luxurious; instead, Afonso Guest House prides itself in being simplistic and practical. With its friendly and welcoming hosts, it's truly your home away from home-clean and functional, the rooms are airy, and equipped with everything a traveler might need. However, the clincher is its lovely terrace graced with potted plants where traditional Goan breakfasts are served to guests every morning, overlooking the whitewashed St Sebastian Chapel. So, if you seek home in a foreign land, come over! Really! You won't regret it. ... more less
