“Good Budget Place at Calangute”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2009

It was a great trip to Goa with friends that was made wonderful despite budgetary constraints thanks to the Kismet Hotel. This is one helluva place for people with tight budgets in an expensive place like GOA (esp during peak season). The hotel is located in Calangute - about 5 minutes walk from the beach, quite close to the main market. Although the ambience/decor is not so great, the facilities are pretty good for a budget hotel, especially when one is in the hotel only for sleeping !! :) The place is more of a guest-house, than a hotel, and the owners/managers are very courteous and friendly. We also celebrated a friend's birthday there, with the manager singing the birthday song at midnight (accompanied by lovely music on the guitar)!! It is this very warm feeling that made me like this place, apart from the fact that we found a nice place (close to the beach) within our budget. We were a group of 10-odd people and had a very good time there. The only drawback is the slow speed of service here - they have few boys/attendants and no proper kitchen - the kitchen is shared with the owner's house. However, the courteousness, and the responsiveness of the owner/manager, along with the assistance provided (car/bike hire, travel booking/reservation) more than made up for it. I would strongly recommend this place to people going to Goa in groups/alongwith friends especially if a large part of the day/night is going to be spent outside and/or if you have budgetary constraints.
