Reviewed 21 February 2016

I have stayed in this hotel twice earlier too. The place is getting old every day. GTDC seems to be doing nothing about it. Rooms were not very clean particularly the bathrooms. The only advantage is the location which is in the middle of the city. Station is around one km away. Local bus stand is close by and Kadamba Bus Stand is only two kms away. Staff is courteous. There was no wi-fi facility in the hotel. Had to buy a very expensive Gwave card for internet access.
Will avoid staying in this hotel next time.

Room Tip: Prefer to stay in Ac suite which is slightly better but price much higher than ac rooms

Stayed here with a couple of friends. The room were basic, nothing much can be expected from a government owned hotel. The food at the restaurant was decent. The hotel is located close to the municipal garden which happens to be the heart of Margao city.

I was there with a friend on holiday, the room costed approx 1200 INR which was fine, the best is it is very safe for female travellers. It seems to have tie up with government tourism of Goa. They do have sight seeing arranged which covered north goa as well as south goa in two days in very reasonable tariff. Also has one restaurant which is fairly okay and the room service is good as well as the housekeeping services.

We had to stay here as a last minute resort. The bookings were done over the phone without any money transaction The previous day. The staff in the reception and housekeeping were courteous. However the room was a nightmare. Hard mattresses, blankets with burnt holes, rotting bathroom door, etc. the staff did supply us with extra pillows and sheets at request but though they looked clean, all of us developed itching allergies of the skin when we slipped under them that lasted the entire night.
It was quite a dissapointment

Room Tip: I was given a road facing room. I liked the view.

South Goa centre, very close to market,veg and non-veg restaurants,bus stand,railway station, shopping and transport easily available. Good for middle class and those who do not want to spend much. Take the road side rooms to get a good view. It is a Goa government hotel. I love staying there because I can shop as much as I want. Rooms have balcony.
