“ideal place for nature-lovers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

We had an overnight stay at this hotel last October 2012 and found the place clean and well-maintained. The room has 2 queen size beds which could sleep 4 people, and a veranda overlooking the lush greenery of Baguio, a very ideal place for nature-lovers. As its name suggests, it is very near, just walking-distance to Mines View Park. Its restaurant serves delicious food, with special mention of its lechon-kawali which was so crispy indeed! For people who love a quiet place away from the hustle and bustle of Session Road, this place is recommended. It is also a P50-taxi ride from the Mansion and Wright Park. There was just one problem I noticed with the bathroom which had a defective design for its drainage, causing accumulation of water on the flooring.

For first timers in Baguio City, they should first find a place to stay in Session Road to explore the sites there before going to this hotel since it is a bit far from Baguio City proper. Also, if one is fond of eating, he should buy his food stuff from Session Road so he could munch them while nature-tripping in this hotel.

I got a deal from Cash Cash Pinoy (2d/1n for 6) last year. We were almost not able to use the voucher because we had to rebook the out stay for the third time. Our second booking coincide with the Habagat. Good thing they allowed us to rebook it again (or they just did not know it was the third time already.
I traveled with three of my other friends so we were only 4 instead of 6 staying in the room for 6. We decided to extend our trip for another night so we stayed in a transient house at Gibraltar the night before MInes View Park (we're on a tight budget). From the transient house we rode a jeep and drop us by Good Sheperd. From there we asked where is the hotel or Apostol St. Apparently nobody knew. So we called the hotel and asked for directions. It was around 1:30 and they had to emphasize that the check-in time was 2pm. We decided to just roam around the pasalubong stores near Mines View Park because it sounded like we are not welcome to arrive early.
The check-in went smoothly, no need for an ID. The frontdesk didn't actually said anything. No rapport established. We were lead by a bell boy who just helped one of my companion with her bag.
The room almost looks like what they advertise minus the small bolster. (My friends didn't like the arrangement of the towels though) There's only 3 bath towels (the room is good for 6), 1 small bottle of shampoo+conditioner, 1 small soap, 4 cup & saucer and 4 glass. We requested for a hair dryer no charge. But other additional things like comforter,soap etc have additional charge. The lamp near the CR hallway does not work as well as the reading/ lamp lights and mirror light in the CR. We had to keep one light open when we sleep so we will not stumble in the dark if we have to go to the comfort room. Our room, unfortunately, also did not have a view in the veranda, just the roof and water tank. I think there's also something wrong with the ventilation. It smells bad upon entering the room and we can also smell the food in the kitchen.
The CR was clean. Though we had a problem with the bidet. The water leaks for a while after using it. We had to call for housekeeping because its already flooding the floor. The housekeeper seem to us was OJT because he's not actually sure about what to do. We wanted to know if we can still use the bidet. There was a flatscreen TV with cable , however their channel guide is not yet updated. (NewsTV is still QTV)
With the staff, they know to greet the guest every time. Our breakfast was served on time. Nothing special with the food. We did not liked the pineapple.
Unfortunately, upon check-out we had to pay a hundred peso because they found a stain in the comforter. Of course I won't pay it without seeing it myself. We checked it and it was the strawberry wine that my friend brought as a pasalubong that leaked just before we went out the room, so it was still wet. The "check-out police" said "100 lang naman for dry cleaning". I just noticed they're really strict with the check-out, why not checked the room if all facilities are working spic & span before the guest checked in.
I guess with the promo P 2200 worth voucher it was good enough. The place looks good from the outside. The hallway was clean. Though overall not well maintained. It has a good potential if they could do some more improvements.
We were able to sleep well as the "comforter" kept us warm at night. After sleeping in a transient house, it's a big relief for us really. The location is also quiet, no sound of vehicles heard. But if I have the P5500 to spend a night, I would consider other place to stay.
We also did not experienced any complimentary drinks. Was it for regular paying customers only?

Room Tip: I think the room on the left side (ie 201, 202) would have better view. But I think room assignments...

Our first stay here was April 2010. We find it ok to stay here that time complimentary drink and hot towel once we check in, they also make up our room for the night, free complimentary tea or chocolate after dinner. Everything is fine that time. Buffet breakfast. We decided to stay again if ever they will have voucher on sale online.

August 2012 I made early booking for December travel. I used 2 voucher equivalent to 2 standard room good for 2pax each only for 1 night stay. When we check in error comes in they booked us 1 room for 2 night but we are 4pax. They gave us ROOM number 3 good for 4pax.

Avoid room number 3 this room is near the lobby, near the kitchen every noise we hear from the room, staff cooking, walking, laughing, getting water etc. They stop working around 10pm and again we hear them again 5am preparing for breakfast.
CR don't have ventilation.

Breakfast is plated.

We already talked to the Manager about our complain, hopefully they make actions on that room.

Upon arrival, the crew will give you a hot towel and free drinks. First thing I liked about the place is the beautiful scenery outside specially when you're in the terrace. Few meters away from Mines View Park and also to Good Shepherd. Very nice and approachable staff and you can really relax because their place is not crowded compared to when you stay in other hotels.

Room Tip: Family deluxe room on the 2nd and 3rd floor are perfect for families! :)

Nice facade but very steep driveway & very limited parking slots. Tiny reception, average rooms! What they called playground was just a couple of swings. Pleasant quiet evenings. Their resto served good food. What compensated was the location, walking distance to Mines View & Good Shepherd.

Highly recommended!Check in was smooth.(Thanks Ma'm Luth).We were greeted with welcome drinks which hit the spot after a long drive from Manila.Staff was very attentive and addressed our every need.(Special mention is Mark) Must try is the "bibingcrepe" for tea time and the strawberry sinigang.We even noticed "walk in" customers.Location aside from being near the park is also a stone's throw away from the Good Shepherd Convent.Will definitely go back once we have the chance again...

Room Tip: We had the room close to the reception and dining area.

We are so lucky to take advantage of their 40% discount on accommodation. We never had a hard time finding the hotel because it is really near the Mines View Park. We booked a room with three queen size beds inside since we are six. The space is pretty okay for the six of us. The CR is clean. The Globe signal here is good, except for their free wifi that I never used because I can't connect, it's a good thing that we brought our own wifi.

Our free breakfast were served hot and fresh. The dinaing na bangus tasted so good and the coffee tasted so fresh. If you are looking for a nice place to stay in Baguio at a low cost this is it. I will sure go back to this hotel. :)

Room Tip: You guys might want to check cash cash pinoy, I heard that they offered a much better deal there.
