A great oasis to stay in Anjuna and relax in a quiet place. We loved the banyan tree. This was the first stop on our rtw trip. The staff is very friendly and helpfull. Sumit, the friendly owner, can help you with any question.
Laundry, money exchange, restaurants and motorbike rent are just down the road.

I stayed for 2 night in this Speciality Hotel with wife and the experience was just right.
Its adjacent to German Bakery,Anjuna and hence there's a bevy of things happening around and music does seep in till late hours which could be an issue for those who hit the sac early.
It close to becah and Flea market which I missed as I checked in late on Wednesday.

There's spa facility in German bakery which is 50 meters from Hotel and hence was something which wife was happy about.

Taxis in Goa are a organised lootagency and the one I got through this hotel was no exception. Staff was very helpful and all request for bike.taxi etc were met with minimal fuss.
All in All, would recommend it if plan is to eke out around 2-2.5K per night.

Room Tip: Book room on the side oppposite to entracnce as it has less noise coming form adjacent German Bakery, especially in the night. Get your own taxi.

Banyan Soul is away from the hustle and bustle of Anjuna but easily accessible by the cheap and readily available moped rentals. The beach and good eating places are walkable. More like serviced apartments, the block of rooms has a lovely shady area under a huge banyan tree with a little library to chill out and a small garden area. The staff were always on hand to help with directions, laundry, advice on parties and places to eat. The manager Sumit went out of his way to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Goa and even helped us get out of a tricky spot when we needed help in booking accommodation in Mumbai. Recommend German Bakery restaurant and Curlies bar nearby.

The Banyan soul proved to be everything that was promised and more! The location of this place is so peaceful and the proximity to german bakery is a bonus! Its a quaint little place and feels like home.. the rooms are basic but to categorize this place under a basic hotel is a crime.. All rooms are done up in pure white (very clean) and almost remind you of small hotel rooms in santorini.. a small sit outside each room has a beautiful thought.. Staff is very sweet and took care of everything..On one occasion when I asked for directions from one of the staff (i think Gyaneshwar), he even got a map for us and explained the routes in detail.. touching :)
Sumit (owner) was very helpful and took care of all our transports etc. very well

Two things that the website doesnt tell you are :
1) This place has an amazing open library/ sit out under the banyan tree.. It is so beautifully conceptualised that words cant express it! I miss it already
2) Doobie- the cutest and loving dog

Overall banyan soul is the best bet for people who like to live in anjuna..
All in all, a great trip, at a great place.. will go back for sure!!
