Margao Residency

Reviewed 13 October 2014

This residency is not in walk-able distance either from bus stand or railway station. Hotel looks good and room was better. The restaurant attached is not that great. They take more time to serve the order. The front office staffs were friendly.

From outside it looks awful and bad. But for the convenience and value for money, it is beyond expectation. I landed very early (6am) and wanted to check-in and have a nap before going for my meeting at 9:30. I got a ac room at decent cost. I never requested for early check-in nor I was told that it would cost me additional. Once in the room, i was satisfied that ac is working well and toilet is very clean and hot water and shower are really working. Bed and clothing are clean. Newspaper is delivered to the room and small screen TV provides access to many news and entertainment channels. Elevator is available.
Next day when I checked out at 10am, I was surprised that I was charged for only one night.
Though hotel surroundings are shabby, the rooms themselves are clean. Taxi and other transport is available just outside the hotel.

I spent 1 night here with my family. I found Hotel location is ok not great.
Rooms are in bad conditions. No internet.
But biggest concern is Customer service by people here. One Rest. located inside Hotel is expensive considering its food, service, overall.
Very few people found who understand what is Customer Service is.

My first and probably last visit to GOA as I found people here are more happy to serve overseas tourist than local.

I don't suggest this hotel unless you dont have any other option.

Room Tip: Take higher floor / back side to avoid noise

The lady at the desk when we checked in waved all other local guests in the cue to go ahead of us and ignored us for around 15 mins then we had to fill out a ton of paper work. There was a strong smell of urine on the walk way to the lift, the room was of reasonable size but had filthy walls and floor. In fact a short walk round the room would leave you with black soles! The towels were a dirty shade of coffee and the pillows had hard crusty corners. the tv didn't work and my partner and I woke up with several itchy bites on our legs, arms and torsos. Upon further inspection of the sheets we found fresh blood spots and several swollen bed bugs that were full to the point of bursting with blood.
We sat at the restaurant upstairs for what felt like an age and never got served....at all. Probably a godsend as the kitchen looked pretty horrendous!

Room Tip: Book elsewhere. Even if it's just an over night stop to catch a train.

This hotel is average in all its means.

Rooms are bit small and look old in make, TV is small. On Website they mention that they will provide breakfast for all rooms booked above Rs 1500 but they will not tell you catch on that. Catch is they will provide you breakfast free only if you book Suite room, their 1500 means, 1500 exclusive of tax. If your room cost is > 1500 but it includes tax you will not get breakfast, we got fooled by this one.

There are taxi drivers outside hotel so you will get taxi service.

Taxi drivers can get you rental car or bike and best is Petrol Pump is only 100 - 200 meters away so no need to purchase Petrol at huge amount from roadside vendors. There is no parking near hotel so parking needs to be outside on road and let me tell you road is damn busy unless you are coming to park at 12:00 am but in season that is also not guaranteed that parking is available or not.

there is pastry shop closer to hotel which is good.

Hotel food is not that great but okay, staff was helpful and provided everything we needed. Hotel was clean and tidy not like other govt hotels.

Market is nearby so transportation and shopping is easy, you will get Auto like 100 meters from hotel,COLVA beach is 6 kms far.

Bed is bit hard for sleep, so not suitable for kids at all. Do not come unless you get any other hotel.

Room Tip: all rooms are same, above floors have access to lift.

We stayed in the hotel from 22 Dec to 24 Dec 2013. The hotel is laocated in the heart of Margao city. The hotel was better than expectations. It is well maintained and reasonably clean unlike govt owned hotels. The hotel has reasonably spacious rooms. The bathrooms require little upgrade. Also the hotel has a restaurant which serves tasty food. Good hotel at lowest price

Room Tip: all rooms are ok
