Arriving from hectic Mumbai after a long and exhausting train ride I felt immediately welcome and home at Afonso. Jeanette and Clifton were just lovely and I enjoyed my beautiful room. Having breakfast on the roof or sitting there in the evening with a nice view away from any noisy streets was wonderful. You can feel that the whole place was created and is kept with love, personality and a sense for tradition and comfort. It is ideally located and I really hope I can come back one day - thanks, Jeanette and Clifton!
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- 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 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. ... more less
