Reviewed May 8, 2012

Comfortable and very cheap. The room was clean with a comfortable bed. The bath had a shower that had just warm, not hot, water. The staff were very polite but with 2 of us staying in the room we were only given 1 towel each day and had to ask for an additional one every day. We stayed for 3 nights then 3 more later the next week....same result on both stays. We always had to ask for a second towel.
The restaurant next door was great with good food and very decent prices. They will even do room service for no extra charge...very nice.
The only real downside is they do not take reservations, it is first come first serve. So we did an advance payment to hold a room on our return and this worked just fine.

A group of us were there for 3 days and found it a great choice. Rooms were clean, beds fine, and friendly staff. It's not the Hilton but nor was the price. By the way, the restaurant next door was tops for a great feed at a budget price.

Room Tip: Book early as it was always full.

my 3 sisters and i stayed in 2 adjacent rooms and we had the same horrible experience. we did not get much sleep when we were attacked by spirits who were obviously pissed off with guests staying at their hotel. but when we discussed this with the hotel staff the next morning, they looked like they did not know anything about it and just shrugged their shoulders about the matter. im telling you, im not open to a third eye or whatever you want to call it...but i did have a bad experience, same with my sisters. and we definitely wont recomment for others to stay there and have the same experience we had.

The owner of the Pensione is my wife's cousin. We were given a room on the first floor and the room was a pleasant surpise. A large kingsize bed, airconditioned room, hot water shower. My brothers and sister who live in Tacloban was surprised when they saw our room.
True we got the room for free, but I made discreet inquiry about the price and it was someplace in the $10.00 range.

I would definitely recommend this Pensione. Clean, good service and a closeby eatery not too good but good enough.

my wife and i stayed at this hotel for three weeks and found it to be comfortable and good value ,rooms were clean and staff friendly .the only bad points were lack of pressure and luke warm showers and the staff had the annoying habit of not replacing the towels when they serviced the rooms each day, but having said that we enjoyed our stay there very much.

By happenstance, I ventured upon this small, but well-maintained pensione in the heart of Tacloban. It is located next to a fine seafood restaurant and I wondered over to check out the hotel facility.

Rooms in the Standard category were clean and well-maintained, but basic. The rate for their best, matrimonial (double) was a mere 520 pesos.

The attached building with the larger, new Deluxe rooms was booked, but allindications were that these rooms were better and the high end price for a matrimonial there was 830 pesos.

It is worth a look for anyone interested in a safe, clean functional place at a good price in Tacloban. The airport and MacArthur Monument are a thrity minute trike ride away.

They do not do internet bookings and the hotel must be contacted directly. One definite drawback.
