To be completely honest, I wasn't sure what to expect staying in a budget hotel but we were in for a nice surprise! Made a booking online via the gohotels website and got a wonderful deal, thought that was excellent! Hotel lobby is inviting, very spacious - it includes a small kiosk which sells Leyte's delicacies, a money changer, a car/van hire desk, two conference rooms and a lobby toilet. Rooms are of budget size but enough for 2 people max. We also got an interconnecting room, which made the room look a little bigger. Gohotel Tacloban offers two types of rooms, one with a queen bed and the other, a twin. Both rooms and bathrooms are clean - this hotel just had its soft opening on the 29th April 2012 and its grand opening on the 16th May 2012. The hotel is equipped with a fancy-ish lift (touch screen), which I thought was cool. A spa is due to open very soon so I'm not sure what its like. Laundry/dry cleaning service is available as well at a cost. But no room service available. It is also nice that the hotel is directly beside the Robinsons mall, a mall that had a lot of food and shopping choice, even five cinemas to add to that.
It's difficult to find decent accommodation in Tacloban City as the other hotels located in the city centre are mostly run down. Gohotel Tacloban seems to be in a newer and more developed part of the city. I felt safe all throughout.
