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 two 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 traveller 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.
At the Afonso Guest House they strive to offer their guests the following little amenities that do help in making one’s stay a pleasant one. Free wireless internet, daily cleaning, laundry service, chauffeur service, motorcycle rental, airport transfers, book library, air-conditioning as well as breakfast a la carte (Extra) are some of their fascinating offers. And since they are the Afonso family, they live right next door to the guesthouse; guests are welcome to talk to them regarding any query that they may have.
