“unhappy experience”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

The room is dirty. There were bugs in the carpet. The room smells like ancient history. Everything looks really old. The linens felt like they have been there in that same bed for ages. Seemed like it never has been changed! Seriously, it won't make your stay in Baguio happy. No aircon. TV looks ancient too. Bad view since it is in the middle of the city. Its like when you get out of the hotel you wouldn't wanna come back. Right after we paid for two nights and went up to our room, we came down right away and asked for a refund. We just decided not to ruin our vacation. I swear, I will never stay in that hotel... But thankfully, they gave us our money back after an hour or so of pleading.. Well, we haven't really used anything there anyway.

Arriving in bagio at the Victory lines bus terminal, I was offered by the "tourist info center" lodges at reasonable prices. They turned out to be fully booked, (the "tourist center"did not check) and i was offered no other option than the villa rosa. There, only the most pricey options were available. 2800 pesos for a room without view ( small dirty window on a wall a meter apart).
Room was cold, bathroom was full of mold and not clean, free breakfast was very poor.
Not recommended...

Room Tip: Avoid; book another hotel before arriving. Do not trust "taxi driver" designated at the &q...

We chose this hotel when we got the bus terminal of Baguio from very long bus drive. One local guy at the terminal offered us this hotel, and we were so much tired to look for hotels by foot. Also it was a bit rained and colder than other places in Philippine. They took us there by car anyway.
Checking in was fine and we got in the room, 412. Then I found a cockroach was around the light. I didn't feel comfortable after that happened. Didn't want to sleep there.
The room was dirty, vinyl was set between sheets and bed, water pressure was ok I think, no soap, poor breakfast, bla bla bla..
The location was fine, close to the central street. But nothing to recommend. You'd better to look for other hotel.

It is our first time to see baguio city, but unluckily, we checked in at a worst hotel. My husband& I chose to stay in this hotel knowing that it is a convenient place going around the city. Yes, central business district is just a walking distance but the worst thing happened during our sleep. We were expecting that we can rest for the whole night for a whole day city tour the following day. We were woken up by bugs that were thriving in our bed/sheets! We never had a good night sleep that we both were longing to have!! We ended up searching the net for a better place to stay in the middle of the night ..Please don't ever consider choosing this hotel. Another drawback of this hotel is their lighting system. Room is poorly lighted, only two small dim lights mounted on the wall for the entire room. Tomorrow, we are, for sure gonna check out & try a different hotel.

This was the worst place ever. Everytime we sat on the bed new bugs would come out. The room was window less and smelt damp. The shower door fell off everytime we used it. The breakfast was really average. The place was so bad it wasnt worth complaining as the youngsters running the desk wouldnt have done anything about it. Just gross. Did not have a decent night sleep at all. All sorts of bugs living in the mattress

we stayed there only for one night after we had a look at several other places with even worse accommodation. We stayed in room 411 and 412. The good thing was that they were relatively quite because they didn´t go out on the main street. The lobby looks quiete nice and the website is also appealing. But the rooms are so worn down and dirty, it was really awfull. Like in some other places I have been to they smelled from cold smoke and mothballs. We payed about 1.900 P for a room, which I think is very expensive for what you get.
