          Nice Place”

          The location is very easy to locate for grab and taxi riders. The room was very clean. They had free hot and cold water in the hallway. The kuya who helped us bring our stuff to the room was very friendly. The resto had very good food especially the Longaniza breakfast although they didnt have so much choices in the menu. The place was overall very nice.

          Clean, cool and comfy room”

          Pros: 1.The bed was white and comfy like a cloud. 2.There's a sink beside our window, so it's convenient for us. 3.The AC was fine. The coffee shop at the lobby had a good ambiance. Pesto pasta was the best. 4. The staff was approachable. Cons: 1.The chimney needs repair because we can smell fried chikcken in our room. 2.We sa small cockroaches on the wall and inside the cabinet. I hope they use insecticide regularly.

          Overall the facility was pretty awesome and cozy. The staff there were very accommodating and the food served was super great. Just a few observations, the rooms facing the road was a little noisy from outside vehicles that passed by. Also in the resto I prefer the Male staff in the desk because he really come to our table to serve us, the girl in there was like not happy serving us hahaha it's like we really have to leave our seat just to ask for something .... unlike the guy he's so approachable. Nevertheless, I will book again in this hotel with my partner.
