The Afonso Guest House, run by Panaji's reputed Afonso family, is more than just a guest house to its many patrons. Nestled in the capital city's quaint Latin quarter of Fontainhas, it is a veritable bridge between Goa's Portuguese past and Indian present. A favoured haunt for many an adventurous traveller for over three decades, its hospitality and peppy spirit show no sign of aging and are still as fresh as they were back then. It makes no pretense of being luxurious; instead, Afonso Guest House prides itself in being simplistic and practical. With its friendly and welcoming hosts, it's truly your home away from home-clean and functional, the rooms are airy, and equipped with everything a traveler might need. However, the clincher is its lovely terrace graced with potted plants where traditional Goan breakfasts are served to guests every morning, overlooking the whitewashed St Sebastian Chapel. So, if you seek home in a foreign land, come over! Really! You won't regret it.

When you check in, they will need to know if you will take breakfast at the guest house or elsewhere, so they can place an order for fresh bread in the morning. The breakfast is convenient and it's served on a lovely verandah, and when you need somewhere to go because check out is at 9am it is nice to have.

Not a hotel for honeymooners, in my opinion. Hospedaria Abriga de Botello looked lovely and we ate at a place called Desbue which was part of La Maison Fontainhas hotel, wonderful food, lovely staff and the welcome we received as we went into reception as non-hotel guests was commendable. A Afonso is basic, but very clean, nice roof terrace just no special suite etc for that special trip.
