“Meh.”
Reviewed May 7, 2012

Stayed in this hotel because it was getting dark and everything else is fully booked. It has a very inviting reception. But the room? That's a different story.

A standard room costed us about PhP2,500.00. It was so small, you could hardly walk around wtihout bumping into something (and I'm only 5-foot tall!). The bathroom door wouldn't lock, we didn't have an aircon or a fan (it's Baguio, I know, but the window is at the far corner of the room and it was so small!), and the room just looked so old and tired.

The service is also blah. We requested for a toothpaste and didn't get one until we called again - an hour later!

On top of that, the cheapest room in Casa Vallejo, a 5-star accomodation is only PhP2,700.00!

We left the next day and stayed at the inn beside it - Reyalta Inn, which only costed us PhP1,400.00.

Room Tip: Arrive early so you have time to check the hotels. There are A LOT and you can walk them if you'...

I stayed in its Executive Room and anticipated the usual standard accommodations based on similar banchmarked rates in 3 or 4-star hotels in Manila. I was disappointed and would rather rate it 2-star with a 4-star price tag.

First, the room has no ref and the LCD is too small that you can't watch TV clearly at the bed's headboard distance. The toiletries are cheap (2 coin-sized "Perla-scented" soap, one small pouch of shampoo-conditioner, and one toothbrush) that I dared not use. There was not even a complimentary coffee or tea in the room. The room is also small, about 20 sq-meters. The worst part of it is that the toilet and bathroom door is made of glass that projects a clear silhouette of you from the outside (inside the room) whenever you are sitting in the water closet, whether its day in (when you switch off the light in the toilet) or day out (when the light is switched on). In short, your buddies in the room can see you doing your [--] inside the toilet.

The buffet breakfast is also so-so that one can have it better done outside the hotel as there are lots of eateries nearby, save for the good brewed coffee.

Now for the upside, the service is fast and good, the rooms are clean and the water heater reliable. The location is also good, near SM-Baguio and the downtown Session Road.

Small, cozy and nice hotel in good location - just 5 minutes by walk to shopping center.
Rooms are very tidy, have free wifi. A little bit noisy in the night, but it's part of Baguio (lot of students play guitar, singing in karaoke etc.)
Very good food for breakfast and dinner, nice restaurant. Attentive and friendly hotel staff. So everything You need for short stay in Baguio!

the room we chose was clean, not too spacious but it was cozy. four of stayed shared in a deluxe room. there were only two single beds in the room. the breakfat was plated (since we went during off-peak season) but we were advised that buffet breakfast is served during peak season. though they only served plated filipino breakfast, it was good enough. their resto (where we had our breakfat) near the balcony really made me feel that i was in baguio... very calm and relaxing. overall i would recommend this hotel and would consider staying here again if i go back to baguio.

Room Tip: choose the room that's newly renovated

El cielito is one of those old,familiar, & friendly inns where everyone greets everyone during breakfast. The home made baked goodies are so tempting and tastes so good! They're perfect to match the afternoon coffee in the inn's veranda. The rooms are small but clean & decent. Breakfast was full with choices of rice, cereal or bread that matches with Filipino style of fried dried fish, egg, and longganiza. The ala carte menu also includes variety of other dishes. Accessibly is great being in the center of the city,cabs are passing right in front of the Inn. I love the staff! They're friendly & very helpful.

Sparse off-street parking, charming/helpful staff and spacious room with ample victuals and conveniences.
Excellent TV selection - much better than Bangkok's Rembrandt.
Unlike many other Baguio hotel rooms, my room had both window (Unsurprisingly with no view, being in the centre of town) and air-con.
Ample buffet breakfast, tho' for porridge we were expected to suffice with just hot water added to the oats - shouldn't complain as it's the first time I've seen this on offer.
A great, cheap Chinese within 100 yards. Self selection of various ingredients and it is cooked within minutes - quite unlike the greasy affair (or fare) we have over here.
Near there 'China town' so many amenities on offer - but watch the ferocious traffic as the hotel's side of the road is partially devoid of pavement.
Accessible stairs for anyone with lift phobia.
Ample reception area seating - unlike Manila's Bayview Park

Room Tip: High up and away from a busy street

Stayed at El Cielito Inn for one night while in Baguio. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and basic. There were no toiletries so bring your own shampoo. The room also didn't have a safe. Breakfast was included with my room. It was decent and consisted of an omelet bar and mostly Asian breakfast items. The WiFi appeared to be working most of the time. The only problem I had with the room was that my door wouldn't lock. The staff was working on fixing it, but I departed before the door problem was fully repaired. Overall, El Cielito Inn is decent, but nothing special. I would stay here again.
