VIJAY from BENGALOORU(BANGALORE, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 04 Oct 2009
Solmar seems to have been a very prominent hotel in the past, but now is past its glory.
There are some strong positives about it though. It is located in the heart of Panjim, and on the most prominent road of Panjim, right next to the Mandovi river. The hotel is very spacious, has good parking and has an old world charm. It has a decent swimming pool. They also provide breakfast and dinner, which is convenient for travelers, although the fare isn't too enterprising... basic food... but good enough in my opinion.
Now the negatives - the AC rooms have a window ac - very old ones at that... no remote...even the manual settings do not work. So be prepared to chill out in the night! No other major negatives really.
Overall, Solmar is definitely value for money and very conveniently located. I would suggest it strongly for the budget traveler, looking for accommodation in the range of Rs 1000.

Hotel is in very bad condition, bed in the room is terrible, you need massage for your backbone when you get up in the morning. We changed the room thrice but not satisfied, also bathroom is in very bad condition.
SARVESH KUMAR from Anand, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 07 Nov 2008
Points of dislike:
1. Furniture very old and unpolished. It looked like badly up kept antique.
2. Look of dinning place. It looks that there is no body to have sense of aesthetics. Place resembled with the canteen of some govt office.
3. Entry place was worth one third of the prices charged to me.
SOURAV from HYDERABAD, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 13 Sep 2008
The beach is very close to the hotel. The room I stayed was a double normal room in which their was a lecage of water from the wall. Then we requested the staff to shift us to another room. Then after paying extra amount we were shifted to a deluxe room which was much better but their was a bad smell in the room. There was a buffey breakfast and dinner in the restaurant, it was nice in taste but the choice was very less. The staff was helpful to certain extend. We haven't ued any amenities such as swimming pool, health club as it was a rainy season. Overall an average property.
ROCHELLE from MUMBAI, India does not recommend this hotel - Posted: 04 Sep 2008
Had a horrible experience with this property. Our room was not that in looking as the interior was not up to the mark. The service was pathetic of the staffs. My check-out time was 12:00 noon but they told me to leave the hotel at 8:00 am in the morning. There was non-veg available in the hotel only vegetarian food. It is not good value for money.

Room was very small and not comfortable for the families. The quality of breakfast and dinner was very poor. There was no room service and staff was hopeless. Cleanliness was also not up to the mark. I had a real tough time over there.

It was a bad experience with this property. The room quality was poor and the hospitality was really run down, there were no body to assist the guest. The food options and the quality was not good too. Overall we are extremely unhappy with the stay.
ABHINAV from NEW DELHI, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 26 Jun 2008
We spent 3Nights here in A/c room & we felt its a hidden jem for the price in Goa. The quality of the room, service, and the food was up to the standard. And we liked the proximity to the Miramar beach & the other shopping complex in Panjim.
V K from Mumbai, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 04 May 2008
The hotel furnishings, the quality of the rooms, facilities & ambiance was of poor. Tea was not provided before 7:30am, also the quality of the food was bad. One cant find any other good restaurant in the locality. The service was slow. Otherwise the location & stay was fine.

KEDAR from mumbai, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 06 Mar 2008
Staying in Goa is always special and it just got better with the hotel solmar. I didn't had any trouble while check-in. The hotel management was excellent. The staff was friendly and they didn't let me ask twice for anything at all. The room was clean and the interior was fascinating. I like the the Chinese food of this restaurant it was different. To conclude it was a worth hotel.
ASHISH from London, United recommends this hotel - Posted: 02 Mar 2008
As such appearance of hotel is very good. Rooms were clean while check-in. There was facility of hot water, swimming pool parking etc. Quality of food was really good. But, I never liked few things, such as
1) They never used to replace dirty towels, soap etc. We used same towel, soap during my stay in hotel.
2) We generally have to call more than once for drinking water.
3) Swimming pool timings was from 09:00 AM to 05:00 PM. Generally most of tourists remain away from hotel during these timings. So i was not able to use it.

ABHINAYA from Pune, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 04 Feb 2008
-> Hotel is located in the heart of the city
-> Room is not good enough with just the basic amenities like bed,TV. Bathroom is also not good with no separate space for shower.
-> Breakfast is good,dinner is not that good
-> Swimming pool is not very clean may be due to seldom use my customers.
-> Good for u if u want to stay in the heart of the city but otherwise there are better options.

MR. NITIN from Mumbai, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 21 Jan 2008
A nice hotel adjacent to a beautiful beach Miramar, nice location and easily approachable. A good breakfast and dinner facility, when any body goes outside from his city, then the primary requirement is good food and same the hotel has provides us both times. Nice rooms and good room facility. But the only problem is room service, it needs some improvement.

AJITESH from Hyderabad, India recommends this hotel - Posted: 29 Dec 2007
I stayed in this hotel for 4 days during mid Dec, 2007. I must say that the staffs were very courtesious. However, the condition of my room was poor. Given the price that I have paid, the GOA govt hotels would be the better option for me.

Would like to mention that all was fine with the hotel apart from the hotel staff who told me to checkout early in morning by 9:30 am, otherwise an extra charge would have to be borne for late check-out.
