We stayed here last November 30 to December 1, 2013 (1 night).
This hotel has the best location in all the hotels in Baguio City (me thinks). It is right smack in the middle of Session Road just a stone’s throw away from SM and Burnham Park. It is also a couple of blocks away from the market, and has 2 supermarkets right beneath it (yes it’s true). You didn’t even have to go across the street to the nearest 7 eleven because all you have to do is choose from any of the supermarkets just below the building. To make it even more convenient for foodies, Jollibee is just 2 steps away from the hotel lobby.
We found this hotel while walking along Session Road from SM Baguio where we left our mother to look for our accommodation.
We inquired for a room good for 3 pax and they gave us the rate which was Php2,500.00 for an overnight stay with breakfast for 2 (plated). Since they told us we could check-in already (standard check-in time is 1-2pm right?) I didn’t hesitate and booked us for the night. I only had to pay an extra Php100 for the additional breakfast.
The hotel has a decent lobby, although it is obvious that this is an old hotel. This 6-storey hotel has an elevator which can fit in maybe about 6 pax. Still thankful though because our room was at the 4th floor and our bags were heavy. Someone assisted us to our room and made sure that we were comfortable. My first impression of our double room was that it was spacious. There’s plenty of room to move around. There was a large closet for your bags/clothes, though only 3 hangers were available. The bathroom was clean, with hot and cold shower. There was no bidet. A small sachet of shampoo and 2 small soap were available.
They gave us 2 double beds which we put together to accommodate the 3 of us. There was a small table in the middle with a glass and pitcher. TV was cable but the reception was BAD. The only channel clear enough to watch was GMA 7. The aircon was good but a little noisy (didn’t bother my sleep though). The lighting was bad, so if you are looking to write or do something with the lights on, you will be disappointed. You may deposit your valuable items at the lobby where they have safety deposit boxes.
Breakfast was plated, with a choice between Coffee, Tea, or Orange juice for the drinks and Bangus, Tocino, or Longganisa. They served it with a small cup of rice, your choice of egg, and pansit. Needless to say this is not a big breakfast and if you are planning for an adventure in the morning do bring with you snacks (or just eat at Jollibee right beside the hotel lobby).
If you are staying for 1 night and would like to explore the city center I would recommend this hotel. But for those planning to stay for 2 nights or more maybe you should look for other hotels nearby.
