this is an excellent budget hotel available in calangute area. locating the hotel would have been a problem, but thanks to google maps. it is actually a small property converted into a hotel, with other houses all around. the entrace to the property looks a bit odd, but inside the hotel the rooms are pretty clean and the linen and towels provided were also fresh. we stayed at the first floor AC room with a balcony but there is no view from the balcony and all you can see is the roof top of the neighbouring house. but as such the rooms had all the basic amenities required like TV, clean bathrooms with hot water available any time, a coffee table and a pair of chairs etc. Also the balcony was later found to be very useful to dry all the wet clothes without any problem.
Accessability to the beaches and other parts of goa is pretty good since the beach can be reached by a 10min walk and two wheelers can be taken in rent at ease as the hotel itself makes easy arrangement for them. Also, they arranged taxi to the airport at a very reasonable price on our way back to home.
The food is not served inside the room and that can be a problem at times. The food available is limited and we had to wait a very long time to get our breakfasts served in the hall that is reception-lounge-dining area. So most of the time we decied to skip our complemenratary breakfast. Stayed with friends in Dec 2012.
