An excellent place to stay is Guest House Goa, where you’ll receive a warm welcome and will be only 5 minutes walk away from the Old Bridge. Also from some of the rooms you get a view towards the bridge.  If you stay here I highly recommend you have the breakfast, as it was excellent value, tasty and seemed very traditional.
