NEVER go up to Baguio during the highlight of the PANAGBENGA without any reserved rooms. That was the lesson we learned the hard way. It was our first time to go up to Baguio for the famed Panagbenga Festival. We had to scout for any possible room within the city.
Scouting for hotels on a Saturday afternoon was frightening. We almost thought we will be spending the night in the cold. Good thing we found this hotel and they got a room available. Eventhough the room was good for 8 and we were only 2, we decided to book it for the night.
Location is great because KISAD ROAD is very near BURNHAM PARK.
The staff was extremely nice. The front desk even lowered the price since we will just be spending less than 12 hours in the hotel. The room attendants were very accommodating.
The hotel is quite old. Perhaps a makeover or rennovation would do the trick.
I couldn't complain about the room though. It is color blue! Very spacious. It has 8 beds and like I said, we were only 2.
No airconditioning needed as this is Baguio. It gets really cold during February nights. The windows served as the aircon. Close it and the room becomes warm. Open it and the room gets cold. Open it slightly and you get just the right temperature.
T&B was ok. Thank God for the hot water.
I haven't tried their restaurant so no review there.
