Reviewed January 9, 2013

You can't beat the location of Fidalgo--in the heart of shopping and down the street from the cathedral and a skip away from Old Goa. The price of your stay is higher than other place (maybe b/c I was there during season), but one thing I did enjoy was the meal at Chili and Spice. The food was awesome and the live entertainment (singers from Singapore) were great! The one minus is the traffic...you won't get much sleep on the road side. Stay in the interior with the pool.

Room Tip: Don't get a room on the street side--ask for an interior pool view room and one with an upper fl...

Stayed here in August 2011. This is a hotel that will help you explore Panaji city on foot if you like, until late even though Goa is pretty much dead after 7pm.
There are 6 restaurants which are worth the time with a blend in cuisines right from Indian, Gujarati, Vegetarian, Goan to Chinese and even Italian. I have tried most but I would stick to the Goan.
The Rooms are very mediocre and needed some face lift and refreshing. The hotel has been there for a while so one can expect the rooms to be outdated. The hotel is always busy with Indian clients but it's a good bet for the foreign tourist as there is a taxi stand bank opposite the hotel which can take you just about anywhere in Goa for a price...Bargaining is the Key though.
The service is a sub standard but then again it's not a 5 star and hence we can cut a little slack on that... Over all a good hotel in downtown Panjim on 18th June Road.

I have been staying here almost every time from the last one year and I must say that this is the best option for a business or even a leisure tour if one wants to stay in Panjim.
Hospitality and food is good. The new rooms are also good.
Overall nothing much to complain.

The location of the hotel is simply great. It is convenient for tourists and business visitors alike. While on a business tour you can even pick some cool t-shirts, cashew or Bibinca from the shops around. Just across the road is the Gujarati snacks and sweet shop which is just awesome.

Rooms are spacious and clean. Little refurbishing of the lifts is perhaps needed. Food was tasty but a bit too spicy for me.

You can visit the entire city centering the hotel. The Mandavi cruise starts from the place which is just 5-minutes walk.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the roads are good for passing your time by watching the lazy flow of the city.

The major plus this hotel has is its central location in Panjim. Just a few minutes away from Miramir beach and the jetty, it is in the heart of busy Panjim.
It is a business hotel, so don't go there expecting to find a lot of space and open areas to soak up the sun. The central area is occupied by a multi-cuisine restaurant, which has a buffet option at dinner time. There is a large fountain and the ambiance is fairly good.
Food is so - so, but its central enough that you can easily step out and try better restaurants in the area.

The hotel is ideally located for any one wanting to do business in Panaji, Goa. The traffic is a bit stiff and would look very high compared to all other hotels in Goa. But they do have packages and discounts for regular travelers.
The reception staff is courteous and well informed about all that you need to know about Panaji and hotel. Service is fast and prompt. They have most of the details ready based on your booking details and the bill takes just a few clicks of the computer. Your check in and check out experience is super fast, typically business like and efficient.
Rooms are not so spacious and ideal for doing business not pleasure. If you as a family go to the hotel, additional bed would be a problem.
Service is fast, homely and efficient. Hotel is very old, I presume one of the first star hotel in Goa, but the upkeep is good and clean. The housekeeping does a good job on maintaining the upkeep, so you will not be disappointed on any count.
The restaurants in the hotel also serve good food and it is worth the trial.

Room Tip: Select the room on the inside facing their restaurant rather then the main roads (16th June or Swami...
