Dirty and noisy”
Next to a building sight and right on a very busy main road means very little chance of sleep. The bedding and towels were disgustingly filthy. Staff either unable or unwilling ta assist with complaints.
It was nice place to stay near baga beach”
I have booked this hotel for 5 days during diwali holidays. Hotel is located at very nice place. Staff is also very good. I have included breakfast in my booking and I must say, breakfast was awesome. Only thing which I did not like is Air Conditioner was not giving cooling properly. Only advice to this hotel people is to change AC's in rooms. In short, for me overall this place was awesome and it is perfect and safe for solo as well as for couples.
Amazing Stay superb hospitality”
This is my second visit to GOA in last two years and both times I stayed in hotel shelsta, Very good management, good service, very good view with swimming pool, delicious tasty food. If anyone from my friends or relatives wants to go GOA I recommend them to choose hotel shelsta for better stay, good thing is... it is very near to calangute & baga beach.
Place was very good, starting was bit scared looking at reviews but its totally worth staying,”
Place was very good, starting was bit scared looking at reviews but its totally worth staying, Only the thing is they have to work on breakfast quantity and verites. also small suggestion swimming pool should be open till 7PM it will be good because after we Rome and come back to hotel we can spend some time in pool :)
Service and Value for Money - Pathetic!!!”
I would not recommend this to any of my friend. Only Good thing about the Hotel was its Location, centrally placed near to Titto's Lane. You will get all restaurant's and beach at a walk able distance. Cleanliness is not good neither the breakfast. Room seems like a Vintage one with no amenities.
actually its not hotel ...its a chaal. with small swimming pool ..rooms are smelling... no bar.”
no...network of any operator ...no wifi....no land lines in room. room service is very time taken...even any low cost oyo room is even better then this dirty hotel....agoda is also fraud website...dont book any hotel from this site. Bathroom of hotel like a govt.hospitals bathroom. jesa photo me dikh raha he bilkul wesa nahin he ....
Excellent location, Decent AC rooms”
PROS: 1) Location: Located on the main Baga-Calangute road. Walking distance from Baga Beach. 2) Convenience: Hotel provided scooter on rent for ₹300 per day. Things like Taxi stand, a small pub (called Baga Deck), a nice Wine shop etc. are all located right across the hotel entry gate. 3) Staff: Staff is helpful and would guide you properly. 4) Has a well maintained swimming pool, for those who care. 5) AC rooms have decent space and a balcony, which can be used for smoking etc. CONS: 1) Service: Service is not bad but slightly slow, maybe due to less staff. 2) Breakfast: Buffet breakfast is not too good, so I recommend you resort to the basics (bread butter jam) 3) Non-AC rooms looked crammed Final Verdict: If you want to explore North Goa and are just looking for a place to sleep, bathe, and poop, you can definitely go ahead with Shelsta. Expect more and you might be disappointed. Final rating: 3.8/5 (Location plays a huge role in this rating)
Cheating to client in the name of three star category hotel”
Bathroom was very much ordinary. Room was not at par with three star category. No exhaust in bathroom. No telephone provided for room service. We have to go everytime at reception counter for room service. No bucket provided in bathroom. Bedsheets was not changed till three day. No water provided till three days except one bottle water at the time of check-in. I would say client is being cheated in the name of three star category hotel.
Great value for money ”
Very friendly staff , clean ,
Good location ”
Hotel is very near to Calangute beach, though there was no restaurant, room service was available with limited options but food was good, swimming pool was well maintained though its a really small pool.
1. No Name board. Need to roam nearby around for 20min to get the actual address. Please keep Name board on road - Walkable to Baga Beach and Tito's Lane. 2. In Summer, Power cuttings are more here i think. So power backup should be maintained. Here no backup - For summer, go with AC rooms, as room will be cool even power gone at nights. Our sleep will not disturb. 3. Breakfast can starts from 7.30/8 AM instead of current timing of 8.30 to 10.30 AM. This will helpful for people who would like to leave early for sight seeing. 4. Pool is well maintained. Good hospitality.
When I arrived early am,I was given a room in the first floor ,I asked fir a ground as health issues.later that morning I was offered 2 beautiful rooms in the ground floor and asked if they had any at the back as you can hear quite a lot of noise at the front ,they gave me a perfect room .The rooms and bathrooms were the best I have ever stayed in before and so bright and clean ,with flat screen tv in the wall with some brilliant English film channels.Thr pool area is at the front and can be seen from the road which is no problem .but it’s a sun trap the whole day,and as it has no umbrellas or shades I only used in my last day.Brrakfast is good you can choose omelettes /fried eggs etc,cereal,toast ,fruit and Indian dish.If you wanted room service the boys were there within a minute or two ,even any problems with the room .So very good the barman at the front was always smiling and wished you well.All in all I would reccomend to friends and family ,but not sure with young children .
Staff were attentive and highly professional. The room was modern and bathroom facilities excellent. The location was perfect for my visit, very central but with the karaoke bar and restaurant opposite- it was a bit noisy at times for my liking. Breakfast was simple but nourishing. WiFi was reliable and the 4G signal on my phone was strong.
Photograph uploaded online are gr8 but actual experience is not that good. BRewk fast, if u r a bread n butter person u will like it, but bread too r pretoasted so if u r late bread will turn soggy. Cleanliness - Bed linen r not cleaned n not changed during our stay. Although they r suppose to provide in room tea coffee maker there was non and we had to ask for it. No hand towels provided. Bath towels were smelling they were not washed from previous use only dried, and we had to ask for a fresh pair every day, they looked dirty as well. Short of staff they managed the entire hotel including kitchen with about 5 to 6 guys. Swimming pool- time limit from 9am to 6pm. So if u with kids and coming back after a day outside u won’t be able to enjoy the pool. Priced on higher side. At their price better properties are available in Goa.
Location is good. Not so clean TV remote is given but no TV. Breakfast is ok for bread and jam eaters. Generally one can not use pool as timings is 9am to 6pm... Breakfast time is 8:30am. Bathroom hot water is not regular, either hot water comes in all the taps or no. Etc.
much better options available”
in the name of budget hotel, every basic aminities was curtailed , only one liter botle was given .no room service.light was also very dim.even below average breakfast was served in a diffrrent area for so called budget rooms.
Non AC room was too bad”
The non AC room was just too bad for stay. There was literally no house keeping during our stay of 4 days. I complained of rooms smelling and the person just sprayed room freshener, and that's it. The toilet was also not stable and not working properly. Only plus point is the location ( very close to baga beach ) , Breakfast was average ( toast, butter, jam everyday + 1 more indian item e.g. stuffed paratha, pav bhaji ) and not as bad as other reviewers commented.
Worst experience - Beware”
Everything is chargeable.. pls don’t believe the pics posted on website. The rooms are pathetic.. All business tactics.. Show you Mercedes & give you a Nano car. Even if you end up booking a room please take the A/c one as it is ok to stay in.. Breakfast sad (just 1 option).. only location is ok ..
I had booked deluxe room so all facilities we're good. 8-10 am free coffee n breakfast. clean rooms. good room service. but hotel doesn't not look like how it is shown in photo. swimming pool is not cleaned on regular basis. No name board to identify. overall grt experience. Baga beach is the nearest. you can find many restaurants, clubs, place for shopping, etc just outside the hotel. 🏨
Excellent property with very cooperative staff and very neat and clean rooms. Kudos Keep it up👍🏻👏🏻🥂
