My wife and I have been traveling for 5 months through Asia. This little b&b was definitely one of the highlights!
Jeannette, her son, Clifton, and daughter felt like extended family, giving us helpful and genuine advice. The location is atmospheric and the room was very comfortable. The homey feel (block stamped sheets from Jaipur) was refreshingly charming.
Breakfast came at an additional fee. Portions weren't overwhelmingly large, but food quality was good.
The room was spotless -- simply the cleanest budget/midrange room we've been in during 5 months of travel!
Thank you, Afonso family, for a wonderful stay!
- 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
