“not bad at all.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2012

we recently stayed in this nice charming hotel in the heart of Iloilo city, right beside Sarabia Manor, which seemed to be old and decrepit. The room I stayed at was clean and spartan, the A/C worked fine..
I particularly noted the nice interior balconies on every floor (albeit tiny) these added to the resort charm. just cross the street and take a 5min jeepney ride to Molo church... On saturday and sundays, buy "bingka" in front of the church.

value for your money..

Highway 21 was just the perfect hotel to fit the budget without sacrificing the comfort and convenience. We got the family room (good for 5 pax) and the place was soooo spacious. The location itself is ideal, quiet enough to get good rest, security assured, and situated in the main road of General Luna Street.

Breakfast was also satisfactory (although takes a while for room service), I learned to order a night before just to ensure timely room in service the next morning.

Room Tip: The family room is the best bet if you are a group of 4-5 pax. If you're taking deluxe or stan...

A decent place to stay in Iloilo, for families on vacation or business travelers.
We booked an Economy Room (good for 5 pax) at P1400/night (off peak rate) with 2 double deck beds and one single bed. The room is spacious, with towels, soap and shampoo provided for 5 persons. The room has very good air conditioning and a functioning hot shower, with pail and dipper (tabo) provided as well. The hotel has two wings, the first wing has an elevator while the annex (where we stayed) had no elevator. Since we all just had our backpacks with us, the trek to our room wasnt much of a hassle and we even appreciated this bit of exercise. Meals are NOT included but the hotel has a lobby cafe that serves food and drinks. They also offer room service.

I've stay in a superior room, large room with a good quality bed, aircon work well. It's affordable, the room worth the price you pay for.They have a menu and you can call them for your order, they bring the meal in your room quite fast. Food is ok but too small quantity. The bathroom is pretty big, hot water, high pressure, clean. It's a quiet place. Staff is helpfull. Nearby there's a small supermarket. The hotel is approximatly 20 min from airport by taxi, 10 min from molo plaza.

We have this huge and very important project in Iloilo so I frequent the province. I feel right at home here not only because my mother hails from this place but also because the people are genuinely warm and accommodating.

Whenever I go here, there’s this hotel that I check in to: Highway 21. For a couple of nights’ stay, the price is really cheap. It’s location? It’s right next to this very expensive hotel Sarabia Hotel so you can have that as its landmark. I got to stay first at Sarabia in my early days in this province. Then I caught wind of this cheaper, waaaaay cheaper hotel, just right beside it so I tried it out. Since then, I’ve been a patron. I used to think it was a sleazy motel but it isn’t.

Just how cheap is it? A single room is around a thousand bucks only. Meals NOT included. But they serve the heartiest breakfasts! Or you may walk to the nearest fastfood.

They’re quite accommodating too with requests. Once I asked them to store this lechon (roasted pig; a superb delicacy in Philippines and other former colonies of Spain) in their kitchen’s refrigerator. Hotel usually charge for this but after negotiating with them, they waived off the fee.

Ilonggos (those that are from Iloilo) are known for their sweetness and gentleness and it’s not different in this hotel. The staff is helpful and courteous. Though, sometimes you need to give super clear directions to them. I don’t speak their dialect so sometimes it’s hard for me to tell them what I’m requesting.

The rooms here are modest, nothing fancy, just what you need. If you're concerned about the bathroom, I attached several photos of it for your viewing pleasure. The rooms offer no good views at all. When you look out the windows, all you see are rusty roofs of the nearby residential area.

It’s almost by the roadside of Gen. Luna street so public vehicles ply the area all the time. Although it’s next to busy road and a flyover, you’d find the place quiet because it is tucked inside this small compound. In front of it is a single-storey commercial space, blocking the view of the hotel from the road that you wouldn’t really think there’s a hotel somewhere behind it. The hotel’s got two buildings, with three floors each. The parking can accommodate maybe about 20 vehicles. There are no amenities here like spa or swimming pool.
