“Great Budget Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2012

Rooms are clean and cozy. Bathroom is also clean and there's a spray bidet (a convenience that is frequently ignored even by 5-star hotels) and hot shower. Indoor slippers are also available. The bed is big enough and is really comfy and the room smells clean, more of fabric conditioner, actually. There's TV, wifi and complimentary water. The size of the standard room is also surprisingly big! There's even a round table and chairs that can fit four people. There's also parking space and a Figaro coffee shop.

The rates are so affordable, really good value for your money. They also have 12-hour rates, which is great since we were only looking for a place to sleep since we have a very early seminar the next day. Can't comment on the breakfast because short stays are not inclusive of bfast, but it's ok since there's nearby restaurants and fast food chains. Reception staff is friendly and polite.

The location is great as well, a few minutes from Robinson's and SM Lipa.

Highly recommended if you're looking for a no-frills budget hotel that's inexpensive but gives you a comfortable stay in Lipa. We have actually looked around the other budget hotels in the area and Hotel Cara tops our list.

Room Tip: There are no elevators so you might want to choose rooms on the 2nd floor.
