Hotel Mandovi
Ranked #16 of 48 Hotels in Panjim
Reviewed November 28, 2013

I have been staying in Mandovi for last few years because of its location and ease to access from anywhere. A drawback is that they do not provide even basic ameneties for drivers if you are driving into Goa. However, close to the hotel there are some facilities like cheap rooms, dormatories etc which could be used by drivers of your cars.

The hotel is pretty old style, but rooms are OK. Food is very good. Being a vegetarian, I like the dal too much. Even my non-vegetarian friends prefer to eat in the Mandovi. They maintain the old Goan culture in serving and the food. The goan curries are genuine.

After the work or site seeing, you would enjoy to have a stroll along the Mandovi river or some window shopping in the market, both are actually in front and behind the hotel.

Room Tip: Don't take the base category rooms. They are too bad.

I stayed in this hotel after approximately 6 years. I came in as early as 7:50 am and they allotted me nice room facing the sea. The hotel is very old and needs some quick renovation. The food is good and so is the staff. I liked staying in this hotel as it is centrally located and I can just walk around the city or to Miramar beach. Just, opposite is the Mandovi, perfect location. But, guys improve on you infrastructure.

Room Tip: Go for premium executive rooms facing the Mandovi river.

nice place with old world charm right in the heart of panji. perfect location for business and tourism wise. in middle of everything and easy accessibility to all nearby attractions. has a nice breakfast spread and a famous portugese and goan food restaurant. rooms are small but comfortable and has free wifi. view is of the mandovi river just opposite where the floating casinos are docked. looks lovely at night when they are decked up. wonder why the hotel is on the opp side of the road and the parking lot is actually having the best views.

Room Tip: the ones facing the road and the river beyond

There are two drawbacks which I will put upfront....the room furniture and facilities are dated (though the size is big and the bathrooms seem to have been upgraded) and the food at the restaurant is expensive.
To get to the positives and there are many - service is fantastic, has the old world charm, guests are known by name, room tariff is very reasonable, location is fantastic, views are good and the food is the best in Goa. A good varied spread for breakfast, and even better, finger licking food at lunch & dinner. Tasty Goan fish curry, fantastic Lobster Thermidor (very good Goan & Continental food) at their only restaurant. Even the North Indian food is good. Take a walk after dinner (but cross the road first). Now if only the food prices were as friendly as the room tariff........
Enough reasons to stay there again and again.

Room Tip: Take a river view room.....best take a suite.

This was a hotel I have stayed in numerous times over 15 years.It was an icon of Goa.Still ok for a day or two but the services and staff quality have deteriorated badly.Riorico restaurant however,offers true and authentic Goan cuisine and the old portugese flavour can still be obtained

Strategically located and plenty of taxis with good service.Good pickup and drop from the airport.Also has one of the best bookstores I have seen with wide variety of books in a tiny space.It is amazing how they could locate all that in such a tiny space

Opposite mandovi is their sister restaurant Quaterdeck which is a MUST VIST for sitting on the banks of the Mandovi river & enjoying a drink

Room Tip: Please be clear about the difference between regular & premium rooms.Also there are issues about...

Bang opposite the Mandovi river, this hotel has good rooms with a tea/coffee maker and a mini fridge stocked with goodies you would love to have to kill your midnight cravings. Its neat and safe. The rooms are big enough for a small family. The hotel staff are friendly and helpful. All good restaurants are within walking distance. Miramar and Dona Paula beaches are nearby. However, you would miss the beaches up North or down South. That, I feel, is the only drawback of the hotel's location.

Room Tip: Select a river facing room for the view!
