“My Business Hotel in Bacolod”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

The hotel is a mid-range one - Clean, average-priced, lots of occupancy, they have free wi-fi in the lobby and in the room. Location is great, accessible to public transport like taxi and jeepneys going north and south.

Their room is clean and cold, conventional tv. (DIM LIGHTS) Their room is a bit dimly lit for the standard rooms I stayed at. The bathroom's sink and shower water has a funny smell, like rusty water. (RUSTY SCENT) So I just switch from the right side to the left side and the smell disappears. My theory is that maybe the pipe lines are rusty... but I'm not sure of it. Even after washing your hands you can smell the nasty rusty scent.

Non-smokers - you should tell the front desk that you opt for a non-smoking room. Ground floor is for smoking, so there might be residue of the cigar-smell when you go in. Non-smoking floor is located at 2nd and 3rd floor with no elevators but it is just a low flight of stairs. There are bellmen to help you with your baggages anyway.

Coffee shop - There coffee shop is lovely, nice ambience, very busy, lots of people coming and going. Food is good, price a bit high, as normal for hotels. What I like is the overflowing coffee for coffee lovers. 1 order has free refills. Breakfast suggestion: It seems that ordering ala carte is cheaper for 2 people than ordering one breakfast each. 1 breakfast is P220-250+ times 2; while I ordered 1 ala carte meal and 2 rice and just paid P200 for the 2 of us.

Room Tip: Non-smoking - 2nd / 3rd floor.

Near the downtown area of Bacolod City. Room is clean, heated water, cable, refrigerator. Wifi is non-existent in the room where we stayed in. Apparently wifi is strongest at the restaurant, in the ground floor which is a tad inconvenient.

Food is good, cansi is yummy and a good snack after a late night and before heading to the comfortable bed and pillows upstairs. Good enough for short stays....

I stayed here for an overnight stay during a business trip.
The good points: The room is clean and quiet. Good cable channels. Strong heated water. Comfortable bed with clean sheets.
Bad points: No wi-fi in room; you need to go down to the restaurant in ground floor to get good signal. Buffet breakfast is terrible.

Room Tip: Optional breakfast costs P250. Skip this and just head off to McDonalds.

I've tried several hotels/inns in bacolod and you have to rate them according to their luxury class. For this hotel, it is par for its level. Not much frills compared to other more luxurious hotels in Bacolod, but better facilities than those lower than Business Inn. It is right in the middle of the busy Lacson Street, which means no problems with either private or public transportation. The hotel rooms are average, tiled floors (not carpeted). The rooms have windows to the corridors, of which these are covered with heavy curtains. This is uncommon in other hotels. This window tends to make the rooms less exclusive in feel. The bathrooms are not that great, as there are times there are mosquitos in the bathroom. I don't know where they enter from.

Breakfast is average. The choices for breakfast buffet is limited.

My family and I went to this hotel when the whole city experienced several hours of electrical power interruption. I was so glad to step to this place because of the many praises and good reviews. However, I discovered that the hotel is not really worth the rave that it have received in the past for some reasons. Firstly, the food is mediocre. I ordered sizzling squid and sate rice. The sate rice was nice and the squid was cooked just right,but the lasagna that my wife ordered was something else. It was cold in the middle layer,we were puzzled why it was cold,it was supposed to be hot in all layers,wasn't it? So we assumed it was bought from the shop rather than prepared and cooked in their kitchen. Secondly, the room needs some renovation because there are cracks on the wall and the fixtures are evidently old. Finally, my disappointment was sealed when I ordered the breakfast buffet,the selection was so few and shocked to see that the food list includes sardines and dried and salty corned beef! I thought
they boast of a chef here?

I could still remember the day when we were assigned to train aspiring call center agents in the city of Smile. We stayed in Business Inn for one long month, and it was superb. Love the food, love there Beef medallion with Mushroom sauce. The place got a good location, it's in the heart of the city. If your'e into night life, this is your place!!! I'm looking forward in visiting it again.

Room Tip: room in the center area has a very good view

Love the food in Business Inn. My favorites are their Pancit Molo, Mango Jubilee, Mango Tango, Sans Rival, Beef Medallion with Mushroom Sauce, Lumpia Shanghai and their scrumptious breakfast buffet that changes daily. Their egg chef is very accommodating. My trip to Bacolod would not be complete without visiting their restaurant.
