Me and boyfie have long-planned our Baguio trip for the holiday season--a good way to unwind and consume our leave credits (and a part of our bonuses). It has been almost a decade since I last stepped my foot there, and it's boyfie's first time. To make our trip memorable, we first prioritized the place to stay, and everything else will be spontaneous when we're already there. Apartelles, transient homes, inns--Baguio has a lot of them and it's very hard to pick the right one from the wide array of choices. Our first option was Hotel Veniz; apparently their non-aircon rooms don't have windows. We prefer natural lighting during daytime and it also feels claustrophobic that's why we looked into other options. Luckily, we stumbled upon Holiday Park Hotel. It was quite pricey I must say but it was worth it. I was stunned because everytime boyfie and I rode a taxi and told the driver our hotel, they always say it's one of the quite expensive hotels in Baguio and rooms are classy. Well, we weren't disappointed--we found the room very relaxing, and we had a great sleep (even naps were deep enough). What I really liked about the room is the warm colors (orange, white and brown). I must also commend the comfort room that really spells out its purpose as showers work properly and toiletries are amply provided. They also gave us new towels in the morning. They also let us use their computer for free since I left my laptop at home since it's bulky (take note, the place is a wifi hotspot). It's also near Cafe by the Ruins, Giligan's Island and Sizzling Plate for foodtrippers and walking distance to Burnham Park, Rizal Park, and City Hall. They also have a rooftop where you and your loved one can enjoy pizza under the moon and stars (which we did). ♥
Highlights: Elevator, Accommodating staff, 24-hour security, luggage helper (free deposit if you want to check out already). I recommend to choose rooms on higher floors to have a scenic view from you window especially at night.
Needs to be improved: The deluxe room was quite expensive (around Php 1800) considering that it did not provide any free breakfast (breakfast at the hotel costs Php 100). Should we have known earlier that the nearby hotel Eurotel offers 25% off on all its room rates with free buffet breakfast, it could have been our place instead. We were also not provided comforters, the blanket was quite small for two people plus it's very cold our aircon is often turned off. Nevertheless, Holiday Park gave us the luxury of enjoying Baguio and I miss our room there already :)
Tip: For budget travelers, try Tuvera Transient Houses. Walking distance from Victory Liner. Rooms around Php 600-900 for overnight stay. This is where we stayed until 12 noon since Holiday Park was fullybooked thus we cannot check-in earlier (we arrived in Baguio at around 4 am).
