We live in Dumaguete. We had concluded that we had little first - hand experience of hotels in our own city. How could we recommend accommodation to visitors? We decided to try it out!
The GO hotel is the second of an emerging set of national properties. It is located behind and adjacent to the Robinson Mall. Both are owned by Robinson Land Company.
It is walking distance from the CERES bus terminal. A pedicab quickly brings you to or from the port and a premium ride finds Dumaguete's airport. Well situated for the daytime exploration of Dumaguete, the location can prove a disadvantage when seeking transport outside the mall's operating hours.
The GO hotel is a good value at any price, which varies depending on the degree to which an advance booking is made. Even as "walk in" customers, our price was competitive with the local competition. In our case it worked out to less than PP 1K/night for our three night stay.
Having recently opened, GO hotel is still shaking out. Management is attentive to deficiencies and responded immediately and positively to those we reported.
This is GO hotel's second venture after the Manila EDSA location. Some minor improvements to that operation are noted. There is a retractable clothesline installed in the huge rainshower enclosure. The bathroom lighting level is, however, unacceptably low. My wife was forced to build her face in the large bedroom mirror. I found myself shaving there as well.
Key control is achieved through RFID technology, an enhancement over the magnetic striping at the EDSA location.
We enjoyed our stay and will repeat it. We will enthusiastically recommend it to visitors to Dumaguete.
