Fodor's Review

Converted from a rambling 17th-century house, this hotel, directly opposite the Chinese Fishing Nets, strikes the right balance between providing modern amenities and lovely shared spaces while retaining the integrity of the historic building. Stately colonial pillars and arched domes add to the charm of the heritage property, and the scalloped wooden ceiling of the lobby has an appropriately maritime appearance—history relates that boats used to be brought in on the high tide and stowed in the stable and dry dock of the house. Rooms, each with their own colorful Dutch or Portuguese name, are large; most have four-poster beds, art and textiles on the wall, and spacious bathrooms. The hotel is run by the popular Neemrana heritage boutique hotel chain. They also run Le Colonial—a few atmospheric rooms in a lovely white bungalow opposite Vasco de Gama square.
