This, for me, is the most ideal place to stay in Tacloban because of their location. Having monopolized the area, Robinsons also brings with it convenience and value for money. The hotel is right next to its affiliated mall, and this will be the only mall besides the old Gaisano in downtown. The place is right next to the rotunda that will lead to both the airport and downtown via jeeps and multi-cabs. Location is superb, and for those who have services, there is also a parking lot provided.
The price is right up its alley, giving you a small but good enough room for your basic needs. The water temperature was working, and the bed was comfortable enough. When we went up to the 2nd floor, we were surprised that it looked more like a dormitory than a hotel having focused more on the "quantity over quality" rather than vice-versa; something unusual for a hotel. There was also the constant reminder to keep everything in the room clean so that it is easier for them to clean up afterwards. The only thing that turned me off was that there was a strict no-eating inside the room policy, since they provided tables and chairs outside the rooms for that purpose. I do not think that you should prohibit people from eating inside a hotel room.
I got room 239, and it was a terrible one for the free 'services' offered. My wifi did not connect at all, even though it connected in other areas of the hotel. There was also that disturbing thought that the windows gave out a little peek to the hallways of the hotel, which in turn would mean that they could also peek into your room as well.
Overall, my stay in goHotels was a decent one. The receptionists were accommodating with whatever directions I ask, and there was also the total convenience of the location and the price with lots of food selections nearby. If i were to visit Tacloban again, this would be the place I would stay in. Of course, given that I ask for a different room with working wifi.
