Firstly we found difficult to find the hotel, but after seeing we just loved it. my wife wanted to extend the stay. But unfortunately our nxt day booking was already done. About the place, its very spacious & room,toilet and porch is clean. Wifi is complimentary. I will surely revisit and recommend friends and family

I stayed at this hotel for three days with my family. Check in was smooth and of note, they did give me a early check in on request. Rooms are medium sized, do not expect any luxury (not complaining as they are good for these rates). Staff are well behaved. WiFi was working fine even though I felt the reception... More

Clean, friendly, great value for money. Isnt a short walk from the beach. The only slight thing was the doors are only patio doors and so if someone wanted to get in it would not take much, however there is someone on the entrance to the complex 24hrs so shouldnt be a problem. A safe would probabaly give that final... More

It's a great place to stay if you're looking for a low budget hotel . Calm and peaceful . Located very close to anjuna beach. The rooms are neat and offer good privacy. The housing staff was also friendly and took great care.

Privacy. Close to nature. Open air library under the huge banyan tree. Close to Curlie's, German Bakery and Michele's Cafe. The rooms are the right size for two (romantic) people and the patio outside is fantastic to sit (and smoke maybe), the bathrooms are a bit on the tiny side and the CRT televisions look out of place frankly in...

I did my research before coming here and I was not disappointed. A quaint little place, tucked away deep inside Anjuna with the German Bakery right beside it, it's a lovely place to stay. The owners have clearly done a great job capitalising on the charm of the 'banyan tree'. Facilities offered are basic and the room service menu not... More

Spent 4 nights here, lovely rooms, very comfortable. Rooms are a bit exposed since one entire wall is a floor-to-ceiling window, but the blackout drapes are great for privacy. Just don't forget to draw them :) Each room is also pretty isolated so you're not disturbed by other more party-oriented guests.
