    I would like some help from members to suggest some 4 star hotels in North Goa. There are plenty of 5-star hotels to choose from but they are not in my range, so the best I can afford is a 4 star hotel.

    Please recommend some 4 star hotels in North Goa which are located near local shops and where it is easy to get public transport.

    Overview

    The North Goa district is the busier of the two districts of the state. It is where the party regions like Candolim, Baga and Calangute are located. The state capital, Panjim, is also located here, alongside Old Goa. Of course, the further you venture into the north, the more serene the atmosphere becomes, with the likes of the beaches of Querim and Ashvem. Over the years, plenty of hotels and resorts have popped up in the region, ranging from budget ones to luxury ones. In this guide, our focus would be on the best four-star properties in North Goa that are located in prime areas. As such, you have plenty of options that aren't limited to just one area in the north.

    Best Four-Star Hotels in North Goa

Its location is perfect for those who want to stay out of the hustles and bustles of North Goa but still be able to access it easily. Restaurants are within walking distance to the hotel but would take around 10 to 15 minutes to reach. The prime attraction of Saligao, the Mae De Deus Church, is around 20 minutes of walking away from the hotel.

It was built in the 19th century and was renovated for years to be converted into a heritage hotel. The facade of the property is a bright yellow, surrounding a central swimming pool. The reception truly embodies the beauty of the bygone era, with its stained glass windows and azulejo tiles. Rooms are simpler with four-post teak bed, years old furnitures and a balcony overlooking the pool. The bathrooms are of the past era too, with the same azulejo tiles and steel bathtub. There's an on-site restaurant named Lantern, which serves mainly Indian cuisine, though there are some dishes from Goan and Continental cuisines as well. Their philosophy is to serve food of the best quality, so from preparation up to serving, hygiene and sanitation is assured. They also have a Jacuzzi Pool Bar, where you can opt to dine or just lounge around. There are various lounges in the hotel too, Barco Hull, Cue Lounge and Shiva Lounge, with the same theme when it comes to the interiors but offers modern amenities for the entertainment of guests.

    Conclusion

    The guide above highlights the best four-star properties in North Goa. Many of them are located in the Candolim area, as this is the busiest part of North Goa, along with Baga and Calangute. There are also a few located outside of these areas like Saligao, Arpora and Panjim. Generally, you must only stay in these areas if you plan to do some sightseeing since these areas have many heritage sites that you can explore. Now if you'd rather stay in commercial areas, opt for the aforementioned areas instead. Good luck and I hope this helps you!
