Visited this place with my family for Christmas '14. The hotel has a lot of positives and a few areas of improvement.

The location definitely tops the list of positives. It's a 2 minute, 200 meter walk from the Vasco-da-Gama railway station and a 15 minute, under 5 mile drive from the airport. There are several restaurants in near vicinity, with various forms of cuisine on offer. In addition, there are two parks around the corner for an early evening or morning stroll.

The staff at the reception are quite helpful and are quick in responding to requests from the in-room Telecom. I had requested for the room to be mopped before going to bed, mosquito repellent and extra blankets. The hotel staff was quick in attended to these requests.

The rooms are clean and quite cosy, the interiors of the hotel had an old world charm to it. The corridors and the stairway are of colonial design. The hotel offers free and efficient WiFi in room.

Some challenges that visitors may come across. Car parking is on the street in front of the hotel and you may have have challenges finding a parking spot. The hotel staff could assist with parking. The large windows of the room we were in, did not have locks and could easily be opened from the outside. Fortunately we were on the 3rd floor and did not lose sleep over this.

The big spirit dampener for us was the service at the restaurant. We waited for 40 minutes to be served. When we had questioned the manager of the restaurant, the reason given was that the staff was engaged in a party at the banquet hall. While the food served finally was reasonably priced and tasted pretty good, the long wait killed our appetite. I would have appreciated being informed about this delay while the food order was being placed.

In all a reasonably priced hotel for the amenities and the location.

I proffered this hotel due to the in house bar and restaurant. My three days tour was amazing in Goa. I loved the water sports like water biking and para ceiling operated by the hotel. There were good condition AC and non-AC rooms in the hotel with in a good tariff. Staff were humble and helpful.

This hotel is centrally located in Goa. It was amazing or I can say unforgettable time of my life. The pool was really as big as it appeared in the photographs. Staff was good. Staff was timely in handling requests. The housekeeping service provided was really good. The location of the restaurant was good and easy to approach. The meals were relatively not so much expensive. You would have remembered to bring your own shampoo etc because the establishment does not supply these essentials to help keep their costs down for the guests. So if you are planning for holidays in Goa,go to The Citadel, Goa.

I book through online and the staff were decent. The interior is good and exterior should be renovated. The room allotted to me was good and well-maintained. I do not remember about the food and there was no delay in check-in and check-out process. No idea about activities and it was an official trip and I went alone. I stay in Bangalore and improvement should be done in exterior. It is value for the money and I would like to recommend other travellers to visit the hotel.

Hotel was good. Location and appearance were fine. I stayed there for two days with my family and friends. Rooms were well-maintained and well furnished. TV, AC, hot water, etc. everything was perfect. Food was delicious. Both veg and non-veg dishes were served in this hotel. Booking was done directly and there was no problem that I have to wait to get the room there. I faced no problem during check and check out timing. Hotel is recommendable for other visitors.
