“Poor hotel with lot of insects”
Reviewed February 1, 2013

I stayed for 3 days.
Rooms has lot of insects even on bed. 1940 style TVs and shaking screens.
Bed cloths were never cleaned I think. complimentary Breakfast closes early. Prices are high compare to the standards they r maintaining.
I advice you NEVER to stay there. We could find lot better hotels at that price.

stayed here for 5 days in may 12.Stay was comfy , good ac rooms in the sweltering goa summer. Nothing negative that I can say about this hotel...the location is he best , in the heart of Panjim with famous restaurants around and places to see. The variety in the breakfast can be better , also they don't serve bf beyond 10 am which was a tad too rigid for me (I overslept on Sunday ) . Rooms were well looked after , were clean . I would say a value for money Hotel.

There was a time when I had very good impression of this hotel. But, last time when I visited, it was an average experience. Hotel need to make some investment on curtains, tv, ac and interiors of its rooms. Curtains were smaller than the size of window.
Room rates have been increased dramatically in last two years. Hotel makes no efforts to retain its existing customers.

Room Tip: Book online directly to get a discount.

Minutes after check-in I notice the toilet flush is not working. A maintenance man arrives & explains that it needs major repairs and I would move to another room. The new room is readied and I move. Arriving in the new room I request for toilet paper which is over and a new sheet as the one on the bed carries a croissant-sized brown stain. The Queen size bed I’d requested at the time of booking is improvised. It comprises of two single beds joined together. The hotel says they do not have Queen sized beds. The best they can do is two single beds joined. The beds needed to stay separate as the hotel does not have queen-size sheets. I looked around to keep my suitcase and finding no bench set it on the floor. The box TV sits to the left side of the bed on what was intended to be a dressing table. Alongside the TV - on the dressing table sits a huge thermos flask, 2 glasses, 2 mugs, an electric kettle and coffee/tea. Under the dressing table sits a bar fridge. Sorry ladies, no dressing table. Make do with the washbasin mirror as the dressing table is packed-out. There is no power point in the bathroom. Sorry gents your electric shavers will not work. Do not even think of hair dryer. Smack in the middle of a tiny shower sits a large bucket atop a plastic stool. Bizarre. I move these out of the way so that I can have space to shower. The curtains, lampshades & bed-head are all stained with oily fingerprints or curry marks. They attest to long years of wear & tear these hotel rooms have seen. I grab a book and turn in. Reaching for the bedside lamp I discover that when the overhead tube-light is switched on the bedside lamps work. If the overhead tube-light is switched off the bedside lamps do not work. I am at a loss to understand this. After all, the only time any person needs bedside lamps is when the overhead lights are turned off. It rained. A welcome change in climate. 2 days later a pungent stink hits my nose. Opening my window I am greeted by rain water which had collected on Level 2 between the stone railings of the building and the wall of my room – in a kind of trough. Mosquitoes had settled in and the water was giving out a putrid stink. I hurriedly closed the windows, shut off the aircon, turned on the fan and opened the room door for the stink to make its way out. Repairs and upgrading are urgently needed for what is now a lower-level 2 star hotel – charging prices which respected well-maintained 3 Star hotels levy.

The hotel is a definite lower 2-Star hotel charging 3-Star prices. Be careful - exteriors can be deceptive. People looking for a basic 3-star comfort level will feel cheated at Menino Regency.

I had stayed at Menino Regency 6 years back during an official trip to Goa. It was a good experience then, and based on that, decided to choose the hotel for this years’ trip with my Wife.

The hotel is located in the heart of Panjim City. Ideal to make it as your base if you want to explore both South & North Goa.
We chose to stay in the deluxe room. The room was clean & spacious and the bathroom was hygienic.
The hotel staff is very friendly & courteous. The room was cleaned every morning and we were provided with fresh towels & soaps everyday. The bed linen was changed daily as well.
The deluxe rooms are provided with a mini-bar & an electric kettle with provisions for making tea/coffee.
The complimentary breakfast includes idli, medu wada, upma/poha, eggs made to order with toast, milk & cereals, fresh fruit juice, cut fruits and tea/coffee. A perfect way to start your day with a full tummy. For the room price, the complimentary breakfast is quite comprehensive.
The in-house restaurant serves delicious food at a very reasonable price. The taxes are killing tho ; )
The laundry service is prompt and reasonably priced.
The staff at the reception is very helpful and they’ll assist you in hiring bikes/cars at a reasonable price.

Overall, this is purely a no-frills business hotel devoid of a swimming pool or a wellness centre. But do you need that? No. The deluxe rooms at approx 2.4k (incl taxes & complimentary breakfast) are total VFM. Stay in the heart of Panjim city, visit the churches, cherish the quiet late evenings, savour the culture of Panjim, roam through the Panjim market ..& come back walking to your hotel. What more do we need??
