Stayed in a deluxe room with a queen and twin bed on the Second floor. The room was quite large compared to similarly configured hotel rooms. The view out of the window was of the street fronting the hotel which I really didn't mind since that wasn't why I went to Iloilo Even then, we never encountered any noise from the road which I very much appreciated after a long day going around town. The staff was quite accomodating and courteous when you approach them. However, I wondered why the housekeeping staff kept avoiding contact with people they run into in the halls. Moreover, I was a bit disappointed when housekeeping did not clean the room until I asked them to when I came back around 5 in the afternoon in spite of the "Make Up Room" sign posted on the door since 8 in the morning when I left to go around. Also, they were not able to replenish the tea we drank from the minibar. But, they were very vigilant of people bringing stuff in and out and kept asking if they (including myself on one occassion) were checking out. Nevertheless, the hotel was quite new, cozy and spacious with its quirks and the price was reasonable for the comfortable stay. The hotel was centrally located and in walking distance of the public market, a grocery, a couple of malls and several schools. So you could save on public transportation going around the city especially during rush hour traffic. I'd strongly recommend this hotel and do remember to leave word with the front desk and housekeeping for your room to be cleaned. This hotel will still be on the top of my list on my return to Iloilo. Just a tip: Some public transportation/taxi drivers know the Circle Inn as the hotel near Santa Maria Catholic School because its new. ALSO, just a warning, the smoke detectors in hotel were quite sensitive. During our stay, they went off for 30 minutes just as we were getting ready to call it a day. Apparently, one of the guests in the neighboring rooms started smoking and the alarm for the WHOLE building went off. I believe the people caught on the street fronting the hotel were alarmed as well as we saw some people running from the hotel to the opposite side of the street because of the alarm. But no one from the hotel staff came up to inform/calm down/or be visible to their guests until the alarms were disabled.
