Im here at my office, doing nothing because it's weekend. it's so hot.. many cars and so polluted surrounding in my condo where i stay, and remember baguio last month. as happy as i am, it deserves to spare couple of minutes writing this for summer place baguio.. here it is:
I work from an advertising agency in taguig city and tasked to take pictorial at all tourist spot in baguio for 3 days. as i review all the hotels in baguio, one thing im expecting is the native view and the fog and the friendly shy people of baguio. i read many reviews of summer place and they said they are a little far away from the metro and u can feel the real baguio.
i once then tried to call this hotel and confirmed to me that they have mountain views, it fogs every afternoon (which is my favorite in baguio everytime it happens because i really feel im at the peak of the mountain =D) and ofcourse the climate, they dont need aircon.. wow! so excited
so without hesitation, i booked for 3 days, gave my credit card details 2 days before my checkin (because i want to avail the 988 promo, which needs 2 to 3days before checkin full payment )
as i arrive in the morning, very morning, they informed me that my card is not working, so i tried my other card, and stil now working. i was really glad how accomodating they are, how they tried everything just to keep on trying to use my card, they dont even bother to tell me that they cant do anything already, instead, they keep on trying and give me different options. finally, my other card works. and they assist me on my room, inform me with all the amenities and freebies i gonna have, great!
as i enter my room 6:20am, it was really spectacular seeing the fogs sit on the mountain, while the sun rises, slowly by slowly fades out the fog.. until the sun shines so bright at the back of the mountain.. so awesome! they said i can see the south china see, but unfortunately, i did not, maybe the thickness of the fog? =D
i really love the place.. and staff most especially at the FO and housekeepers.. but i only have one comment, the heater in my shower room is either too hot or too cold.. and they fixed it after how many hours, which i really wanna take a bath.. but thats no prob to me, everything was fine.. =D
i will go back to this place..as long as the place is the same and the staff is as friendly as the same.. kudos!
