Hotels, areas to stay

I will be in Angeles city for either one or two nights only. Having not been to Angeles before, was wondering if there is any particular area I should consider, I dont mind being around Fields , but dont want to stay any place too sleazy.

Any hotel suggestions under 2000php and any suggestions for a night out, restaurants, clubs, shows etc. I will be with my wife and though neither of us are prudes, would rather stay in a relatively safe and clean area.

Thank you for any responses

I stayed in Rumi Apartelle and the standard rooms are around P1000.

It's about a 15-20 min walk to Fields Avenue from here so it's in a quieter area. The hotel provides a shuttle and jeepneys ply the main road frequently and will take you into town for only 8 peso's.

Away from the bars, there's not really a huge amount of 'sophisticated' nightlife around Angeles. The showbars themselves are utterly amateurish. It is more of Las Pits standard of entertainment than Las Vegas.

You could check the schedule for Pagcor Casino Filipino which is on MacArthur avenue and just a 10 minute walk or trike ride from Fields Avenue. They sometimes have some interesting acts going on. Don't expect western standards of entertainment and be prepared to cringe, but it's something to pass the time.

Midnight Rock, a bar located midway up Don Juico Avenue has an ageing British rock singer who does his thing on a Thursday night. The bar itself is very gloomy and the waitresses are, ermm, 'mature.' However, again it's an alright thing.

Lastly (that I can think of) would be Club R n B. This is located much further up Don Juico. You will definitely need a trike. Not advisable to walk around that area at night. They have a variety of acts most evenings. Some of them are hopeless, but some are really quite good. Once inside the club, you are perfectly fine. Certainly worth a visit.

There are a ton of hotels around Angeles now. Whilst they not be sleazy, it's so difficult to recommend to a stranger for this part of the world. If you stay centrally (ie, around Fields Avenue), you will be confronted with sleaze when you leave the hotel. Unavoidable!

If you want to avoid that, you may want to look at The Mint (a Best Western franchise) or Century Hotel (part of the Pagcor Casino Filipino). If you don't mind walking out of the hotel on to Fields Avenue, then just make your decision based upon hotel reviews on Tripadvisor.

A good budget option is the Tune Hotel which is only a few years old and good for a night or 2. Small rooms.

Its a few doors down from Savannah Hotel which has a nice restaurant and a chilled out bar.

Ive also stayed at Lewis Grand Hotel which is lovely but twice your budget unless there is a promo on.On a promo they had we stayed there for around 2500 Php.

Tune Hotel is a good call. It's in the same area as the hotel I mentioned in post #1.

There are many hotels for under 2k in Angeles that are nearer to the action. Check this out for ads and research a bit better for other options.

Thank you all for your replies. I did have one more question regarding travel from Manila to Angeles.

I will be staying in Makati, and was wondering which bus company/terminal is the most convenient from Makati, also does anyone know the current schedule Manila to Angeles.

Once again thank you for your contributions

I like to take a taxi to Cubao and get the 5 star. The bus takes about an hour + out of Cubao to the Mabalacat DAU terminal. Drawback is taxi fare and any traffic along the way.

I also like to get to Victory Liner in Pasay and that bus, which is about 2 hours + once it gets going. Its my mood. I think for you better to go to Victory Liner. Cheaper by taxi from Makati but if its traffic, it can take a long time on that bus to travel. .

Buses leave frequent enough so not to fret, actually Victory Liner buses leave more often from my experience. Ask which bus is going to Dau.Yeah, go for Victory Liner.

I usually take 5 star from Pasay since I stay in Malate usually.

Cost is P150 and Makati is not too far away rom Pasay.

The distance between you and the bus terminal is the horrendous traffic.

@ Travelin

The closest bus terminus to Makati would be at Edsa - Pasay. Victory liner has buses to Dau (which is the bus terminus for Angeles city) every 20 minutes. All their buses to Baguio also go through Dau. The bus journey takes about 2 hours.

As soon as you arrive at Dau bus terminus, take a trike (there is a well organised trike stand at the entrance of the bus terminus) and tell them the name of your hotel in Angeles - takes about 15-20 minutes, and 75-100 pesos.

Do note that a small segment of Fields avenue (imaginatively called Walking street!) is blocked out to traffic in the evening.

The main activity of pursuit at Angeles is .. ahem... the ubiquitously labelled "night life". Hence hotels are most abundant, and probably among the best value in the Phils - 1500 pesos will fetch you a nice large room, 2500 - 3500 pesos will even fetch you a room with a big batch tub and jacuzzi at some places. Most hotels are along Fields avenue and the streets off it - so are restaurants.

Rather than book in advance, it is best to simply walk in, check out the room, and then decide - for all hotels are not alike. The trike can help you in this pursuit - he will only be too happy since he will get a commission from whichever hotel you select. Don't worry - that is the way things are done here.
