This charming, family-run hotel in the peaceful valley of Assagao boasts some of the most scenic and popular sites North Goa has to offer. Nestled in quiet surrounding, yet not too far from tourist haunts such as the beaches of Calangute, Candolim, and Morjim, Astoria Hotel naturally becomes an inviting base for long-term guests and those wanting to explore the city. The main section of the hotel is a 200-year old Portuguese mansion while the extension is more modern with 20 tasteful rooms on offer. Guests can dine in the privacy of their own room by ordering room service, or take a short stroll to the restaurant and sample traditional Goan cuisine. All of the spices used in making these dishes come straight from the hotel's own spice garden, ensuring the freshest taste. Guests can also book yoga lessons, alternative therapy courses, and cooking courses upon check-in. The village near the hotel is a charming place to sightsee and learn about the rich history of Goa.
