I decided to visit Baguio again after more than 15 years (I had grown bored with the place since my parents took us there every summer) and thought I'd try out a different approach to my visit. Usually, we stayed in budget hotels so it's hard to complain when the beds weren't that great, or the rooms were run down etc.
I took the recommendation of my friend to try out C Boutique -- you know, spend a little more and get a better night's rest -- and I was quite pleased. I really wanted to just get away from the city and veg out for 3 days in the quietude and coolness of Baguio and I have to say, I chose the right hotel.
I just got the basic room but it had a simple balcony which allowed me to sip my coffee and read a book amidst the cold air. The food was pretty good -- had the eggs benedict, a must try -- and the staff was very accommodating.
The hotel also had an outdoor area where I could have a smoke and read some more. The location is somewhat isolated which is good. I think that's the point. You're away from Session Road and all the hustle and bustle of what Baguio is today. So I was able to get my hermit vacation.
I also enjoyed the walk around the neighborhood and saw some awesome tree sculpture. You should look for it. A small treat was the fishball vendor right up the street to the left of the hotel. I like that stuff. Hidden gem.
