I chose Casa Severina after reading all those TripAdvisor reviews and I must say that within my budget it was one of the best experiences. This is my fourth trip to Goa and I always stayed in different places around Calangute-Baga and my next time, I will still go to Casa Severina.
This so-called heritage hotel is a rather new building with Portuguese architecture. The location is good - it's away from the sound but still near to the main road and just five minutes walk to Calangute beach south side. All rooms are well-appointed and have got all that amneties you look forward to - kettle, safe locker, cable TV (CRT), air conditioner, minibar, hair drier. The staff - be it t the front desk lady, the manager (Johnson Pereira), restaurant staff, bar man, the security guard, cleaner lady, room boy, driver - are extremely well behaved and polite. Food and bar items are cheaper and nice. The pool, though a bit small in size, is always clean and tidy. Another specialty is that they have provided 6 to 8 free bicycles that you can use for your short trips to ATMs or to the beach side etc. The security guard will help you with your scooter/motorbike rentals which is a cheaper and effective commuting mechanism in Goa.
If I have to write about improvement areas, I would have liked to have a better breakfast spread. Whatever they have was good, but would help if they had a few more items. Also, probably it lacked a clearly marked kitchenette in Deluxe rooms. Perhaps it's there in the suite variations. The property is small in size and amidst the residential houses. Hence if you get into your balcony, you can see others' houses which is probably not too much of a privacy issue in places like Goa.
I would recommend this property any time to Indians as well as foreigners.
