m away from Vasco Railway station, very close to the famous Mormugao
Harbour, lies the Vasco Residency.
Like other GTDC residencies the Vasco

a little further with lovely spacious balconies outside most rooms.
64 large, airy and comfortable rooms coupled with a conference
hall, make it an ideal business class hotel. Vasco Residency
is clean and sophisticated from its large, elegant and comfortable

a huge patio outside.

after your business meetings of the day, this is the sanctuary
you can escape to. If you need to dash off emails and faxes, there
is a business centre in the new wing that is fully equipped with
broadband high-speed internet connectivity and at least 10 computers.
A variety of cuisines can be sampled at Little Chef the beautifully
designed bar and restaurant. The residency has a large wedding
