Such a great place! We were traveling as a group and had reached the end of a long trip. Our time in Goa was relaxing and restful thanks to the help of Jeanette and Clifton. It wouldn’t have been the same without them. The accommodations...More

This place was excellent!!! Jeannette was so hospitable and accommodating. It was clean, cute, and an excellent location! I would recommend Afonso house to everyone I know. There is an amazing rooftop where breakfast is served, and every room as so much character. If you’re...More

About
Description
The Afonso Guest House, run by Panaji's reputed Afonso family, is more than just a guest house to its many patrons. Nestled in the capital city's quaint Latin quarter of Fontainhas, it is a veritable bridge ...More between Goa's Portuguese past and Indian present. A favoured haunt for many an adventurous traveller for over three decades, its hospitality and peppy spirit show no sign of aging and are still as fresh as they were back then. It makes no pretense of being luxurious; instead, Afonso Guest House prides itself in being simplistic and practical. With its friendly and welcoming hosts, it's truly your home away from home-clean and functional, the rooms are airy, and equipped with everything a traveler might need. However, the clincher is its lovely terrace graced with potted plants where traditional Goan breakfasts are served to guests every morning, overlooking the whitewashed St Sebastian Chapel. So, if you seek home in a foreign land, come over! Really! You won't regret it. Less

I booked a pickup through the hotel, its about 45 mins away and cost about £15. Everybody seems to use Uber, which saves getting ripped off all the time.

When you check in, they will need to know if you will take breakfast at the guest house or elsewhere, so they can place an order for fresh bread in the morning. The breakfast is convenient and it's served on a lovely... More
