The hotel location is on the beach.

5.4/7
Posted 22 Aug

The hotel location was very convenient its exactly opposite to the beach which was amazing. Its well-maintained resort. The overall appearance of the hotel was nice. The front office staffs were polite and helpful. The room was average. The food at the hotel was very good. The overall service was prompt and on time I didnt use much of their service. There was no extra activity available in the hotel. I visited here with my family. I booked the hotel directly. The room quality and house keeping service can be improved.

Average hotel

4.0/7
Posted 22 Aug

My stay in the Namaste Café when I had been to Gokarna during the month of July 2017. It was my holiday trip with my friends. The destination was average. I would rate the location as average. There is no issues in reaching the hotel. I would rate the appearance of the hotel as average as it look like a old cottage. Hotel front office was average since they are always available with correct information. I booked my room at this hotel via online. The services which were provided in the hotel were average as the staff were not very much friendly towards us. The rooms at the hotel were average. For food I would rate it as average. There were no other activities available at the hotel.

Overall hotel is excellent

5.3/7
Posted 22 Aug

Namaste Café Gokarna was my stay in the month of July 2017. It was my holiday trip with friends. The place where I had been to was good. My hotel location was excellent and it is near to the beach as the hotel is situated at decent place. I would like to rate the appearance of the hotel as good. I would rate the front desk staff as below average because I waited there about three hours. I booked this hotel directly because there is no online booking facility. The overall rating for the service was good as the staff behavior was very nice. Rooms which we stayed in were good because of available facilities. Food was excellent in quantity and quality wise and they don’t provide room service. There was no other activities available at the hotel I would rate it as average. I would like to recommend the hotel to the other visitors.

Nice and only place to stay in Gokarna

4.4/7
Posted 16 Aug

This place is well located near the om beach.one can say that this is the only stay which is very comfortable in gokarna. Has very less amenities. The front office is almost as void. The hotel room is good but lacks a lot of items . there is no TV,no internet connection and no food service . absence of landline or intercom. There are zero activities unlike mentioned in itinerary. But the Cafe is good one.have a view of the beach and get served on some good delicacies.

Good stay

3.0/7
Posted 1 Aug

Well Gokarna does not have many good staying and eating options and hence Namaste Cafe becomes the best of the worst for eating. A drinking and hangout joint for most youngsters, food is below average and is charged heavily for the same. As far as the stay is concerned there are a few other better places to stay in GoKarna.

Ideal Weekend Getaway!

6.0/7
Posted 19 Nov, 2015

My friend and I travelled to Gokarna for the weekend and decided to stay over in Namaste Cafe. It's a lovely little resort that's right on the Om Beach. The rooms available were clean, comfortable and well-maintained. The staff was friendly and very helpful as well. The best part about Namaste cafe was it's wonderful open air cafe, which overlooks the beach. It is the ideal place to chill with a pint and a book or gaze at the pristine waters of the sea ahead and ponder about life, which is what we did. The beach itself is an absolute delight! Kept spotlessly clean, it calls to the nature lover inside you. If you're looking for place where you can get out of your room and take a few steps to reach the beach, then this is definitely the place to be! Also, the food is delicious! Sea food lovers must try out the prawn dishes, it is guaranteed to leave you licking your fingers! If you're planning on travelling during the peak season, please book ahead as this place is fairly popular with tourists.

Very satisfied

6.1/7
Posted 13 Oct

I visited Gokarna on a holiday trip. It was with my friends during the month of August 2016. I booked a room at this hotel through online. The location of the hotel was excellent as it was nearby to the OM beach. It was of walkable distance. It was convenient and the best way to reach this hotel is through the car. We traveled by own car. Free parking facility was available. The appearance was very good with the open greenery. It was natural and neatly maintained. The reception area was clean and well decorated. The staff was very good with the hospitality. They were very calm in welcoming. They knew many languages. They were polite and on time in finishing the booking process. When asked for a mini fridge in the room. They refused to provide. Rooms were very good with all the required facilities in a proper manner. It was clean. Beds were comfortable. The ambience was good and attractive. But there was mosquitos problem. The room service was good and they were on time. Foods were excellent. The quantity and quality were very good. It was a restaurant service. It was tasty and delicious. But no complimentary food items. We didn't use any gaming amenities. The overall service was excellent and very well fulfilled. I indicate the hotel management to provide a mini fridge in the room. Other than this our stay was comfortable. So I recommend this hotel to everyone.

Good experience and attentive staff

5.9/7
Posted 20 Dec, 2015

It was mainly a spiritual/religious visit to Gokarna, extended by a leisure tour with stay at "Namaste". First impression at the gate, although, was not very good, once at reception (with lot of walking), & then with sight of sea, the pleasure got unfolded step by step. Some more attention to cleaning of the rooms, toilets, mattresses could add to good experience. The staff is attentive & with focus to give service. The separate kitchen or restaurant for vegetarian could also be thought of. Some people can object for the people taking liquor but it can be ignored especially in such resorts but the smell & smoke of Non-veg dishes is just not possible to digest/tolerate for veg people. Overall, the experience is good. I have already recommended to quite a few of my friends.

Sea facing Cafe but rooms are smaller in size

5.8/7
Posted 28 Aug, 2015

About Gokarna: You may not get a warm welcome if you don't know Kannada. At the same time you will treated good even if you try to speak some broken Kannada. If you are dreaming to try sea food from the road side shops since its a coastal area, sorry guys this is not a place for you. It's surrounded by temples and its a holy place. If you are planning to stay in Namaste Cafe, then you don't pay more than 150 for your transit to the city in any auto. The easy and best way is to hire a bike (ACTIVA) in the local mechanic shop for some Rs:300/day. About Namaste Cafe: Receptionist is not too good to receive you with big smile or so, since its not a resort / 5 star hotel. You can ask them to show you the Cottage / Building / Air conditioned Building. It purely depends on your preference what you want since almost all the rooms are of same size. Pros: 1. Sea facing almost you will feel as if you own the beach. 2. Secured, beaches are safe to roam around. 3. Smoke + Drink, you can drink plenty of Lager beer if you love it. 4. Food, I love the food of Namaste Cafe with a decent price tag (worth the money). Try King fish from Namaste Cafe for your dinner. 5. You may enjoy if your are a pet lover. There are some dogs/puppies which accompanies you in your beach walk and stays with you in restaurant as well. Cons: 1. No mobile signal near beach. You may not be able to use internet near the beach due to weak signal but, you can make a phone call in the beaches. 2. Again you may not get mobile signal in the rooms that you stay. 3. No Television, you may just want to relax on the sea shore if you really want to watch news, stocks, addicted to get sleep while watching TV, then you need to consider this. 4. Rooms should be kept clean on your own since the room service will clean it only when some one vacates. 5. Rooms are smaller in size and comfortable for a couple.

The most famous place to stay on the OM beach sure...

5.3/7
Posted 28 Dec, 2010

The most famous place to stay on the OM beach surely lived up to its name. You couldnt ask for a better location. The cafe on the sea shore is one of the best out there and even the people from other neary hotels walk in here for tea and food. The sound of sizzlers keep wooshing pass you ever so often that you end up trying one. You surely wont regret it.
