Hotel Mondovi, Located at the CBD of Panjim and one of the neat hotel in the city, It has a lovely view of river mandovi as the hotel is jut next to the road of the river, one can enjoy the view if the room has windows facing towards the river.

Staff are quite helpful and the food is amazing, Especially the Goan food,Rooms were neat and clean.

If you are opting to stay at Panjim, then it is one of the good hotel to stay.

Hotel Mandovi is one of the oldest hotels in Panaji. Still well know and could do with some maintenance. The conference hall Senado needs immediate attention! The food was great though. Really enjoyed the non-veg cuisine served. The service was good and quick.The staff always there willing to make our experience feel good.

considering the room tariff, the amenities, one should skip this one, unless they dont have much options in holidays. the hotel seems to be very old and one can see it right away. though its very clean, and maintained, it doesnt have to offer the modern day amenities that one looks for. the rooms are very small, one can hardly walk. the breakfast was OK. the best thing about the hotel is that its located next to the mandovi river and some rooms may offer a view to the same. also the casinos are located nearby.

Me and my husband visited twice last year. It was magical the first time but last may we went with the family and stayed in their standard room instead and nothing seemed as great. Room was smaller. And out of the two one had a smell of a dead rat or something. When we let the staff know,the cleaned it but the airfreshner only helped for a few hours.
We complained again but in vain. Besides that the hotel was lovely.q

We appreciate your honest yet valuable comments. The Deluxe rooms are appropriate if you plan to come with family as they are more spacious and comfortable. The Standard room is an entry level room that has all the basic requirements and hence the price is lower.

We do apologize for the inconvenience caused to you during your stay. We will ensure you do not have any such complaints in the future. We look forward to welcoming you again to The Mandovi!

Overall a good hotel with reasonable budget and value for money. Nice location with rooms facing river mandovi. Bit noisy in day time but very silent in night.

Rooms are bit smaller in size if family stay is considered. Service quality is good.
