we stayed in Kabayan Hotel last Oct. 1 for one night since we had a domestic flight scheduled the next day. it was conveniently close to the airport, and it was cheap. I was staying with my husband, our baby daughter, my brother and his girlfriend so we got the Family B room via their website. When we got there, we were actually given a room with 2 single beds and 1 queen size bed, instead of the 1 double bed with a double deck bed seen in the picture, and it was way better than we expected. the rooms were new and clean since it was located in the new building. for the rate we paid for it, plus the free breakfast, we thought it was a steal. the staff were accommodating, the building was new and it had internet access.
But we were rudely awakened by the pounding of hammers and the undeniable sound of construction going on the next morning. only the dead could have slept through all that ruckus, so there was nothing else to do but to go down the cafe and check out the complimentary breakfast. it did say "pasensya na, kabayan" on the room menu that renovations were still going on, but i did not expect to be awakened by hammering. and being a Filipino, I did understand, not so my Japanese husband, to whom i had to apologize and explain that it was my fault for not checking the hotel out thoroughly. but for the price we got for the rooms, it was forgivable. The breakfast was a disappointment, though. for Filipinos, the daily set menus for the complimentary breakfast are edible, but for foreigners, better order off the regular menu
unless you want to grumble all through breakfast about small platings and weird diet.
all in all, I highly recommend the hotel but would hold out staying again till they actually finish the entire building, unless you don't mind hammering noises for an alarm clock.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Kabayan Hotel, one of the most preferred hotels of OFWs and city travelers looking for great-value accommodation in Metro Manila, is a triumph of true Filipino hospitality. From the time guests are met at the airport and throughout each moment of their stay, travelers experience an extraordinary kind of welcome and care that is uniquely Filipino. All of the 276 reasonably priced rooms are thoughtfully prepared, each with a minimalist but functional design. The accommodations have air-conditioning, cable TV, and private toilet and bath. Further facilities include complimentary Wi-Fi access, airport transfer, and parking (limited slots available). But the real allure of the hotel lies somewhere in the quiet moments in between: eating halo-halo at the Pinoy Star Cafe, or indulging in a mouthwatering plate of crispy pata while spending quality time with loved ones. Indeed, this place provides a home for everybody - the reason why guests keep on coming back and find it hard to leave. As how the Filipinos would say it, "laging binabalikan, mahirap iwanan." ... more less
