Goa is India’s tourist capital. When people think of Goa, they think of beaches and good times, and when it comes to accommodation, everyone looks for hotels that are near the beach. But more than just vacations and fun times, Goa is also quickly becoming a great destination for businesses looking to extend their operations or start new ones. These business trips are important, and accommodation needs to be central and easily accessible. That’s where Hotel Fidalgo stands out from the crowd.
In the heart of the city
Embodying their tagline ‘So central, So convenient’, Hotel Fidalgo stands tall in the center of Panjim on the famous 18th June Road. This local landmark traces its heritage back to Goa’s colonial Portuguese era, however, it wasn’t till 1974 that it was taken over and renovated to be the structure that it is today. The award-winning hotel is famous for its events, convenience, but most importantly for its choice of cuisine thanks to its multiple dining outlets that serve a variety of different cuisines.
