I give first preference to Ginger wherever I travel. I had been to Ginger Goa, Vishakhapatnam, Ahmedabad, Delhi and feel the same facilities and services. I feel homely at Ginger. Particularly their Veg Curry set concept should be adopted by other hotels also as it does not waste food. In other hotels we are unnecessarily have to order the food quantity which we can not consume if we are single. Veg curry set is appropriate quantity for a single person.
This hotel is in walking distance from Miramar beach. The rooms and bathroom are clean,with good AC TV. Complementary breakfast and tea was of excellent qualitu Bus service to reach panjim is very frequent. Hotel manager is an all rounder. He is very nice behaved. He also managed us to provide a car for north goa visit at a very cheap rate and we had a great trip there.
"Clean and Comfortable home stay. Centrally located"
Derek who owns this place is doing an excellent job. I had a very comfortable stay. This hotel is centrally located in Panaji and yet it's in a quite neighborhood.
Overall it was a great stay and would come back.
There are two WelcomHeritage properties on the same street, but the hub is the Inn, which is where you have to go to check in and to eat. The Pousada a couple of properties away is the nicer of the two for sleeping. It's quiet and all the rooms radiate off a very nice atrium with some artwork. The rooms all have to be padlocked from the outside when you're out and bolted on the inside when you're in, which worried me a bit in case of an emergency. The padlock key has to be inserted inside the room socket to turn on the power. The furniture and styling is very old and at first glance is a bit off putting, but in fact, it's actually quite quaint. There was 4 poster bed in my Pousada room and a very large bathroom. The room has a desk and chair, but they're small and very uncomfortable. The only other place to sit is on the bed. They provide tea, coffee and free bottled water. For breakfast, you have to go next door to the Inn, where unfortunately, the eating area is outside. You'll thus be sharing your breakfast with 1,000,000,000 flies. They crawl over everything, including the plates, knives and cups waiting to be used and that really, really turned me off. The breakfast food selection isn't great, but it certainly isn't bad.They only have instant coffee though.
There's a distinctly European atmosphere in the state capital of Goa, a remnant from when Portugal ruled the area. Portuguese architecture abounds, with red-tiled roofs and balconied buildings, and the hustle and bustle of Indian cities gives way to a more laid-back atmosphere. The Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary is a popular attraction, along with the area's famed beaches.
