Sorry for the picture. I arrived at Tacloban quite late in the evening so I said I would just snap a photo of the exterior the next day, except that it was still dark when I left. Fine, I forgot! HAHAHA. Thanks to openrice.com for the visual. As for the place itself, how was it? In terms of price, this is already considered as cheap accommodation. If my memory serves me right, the single fan room only cost 350 pesos. They have this promo where all prices are slashed in half, meaning the same room would normally cost you 700. I chose the air-conditioned single room for 560 pesos, which turned out to be a twin-sharing room, which meant my backpack also had a good night sleep on a bed of its own.
The bathroom is fine but my only complaint is that it was a bit dark. The room is spacious enough. There is a television set but I did not test if it was working. The biggest disappointment I got from this hotel was the WI-Fi. They do not have WI-Fi in the rooms. Okay, so do you have to pay to get WI-Fi? No, still no WI-Fi in the rooms. They do have WI-Fi at the lobby and when I asked for the password, they asked for 50 pesos. No, it is not free. WTF? The room rate is slashed in half, remember? Do not complain! So I just tethered using my phone. Luckily, signal was good in the room and the speed was decent enough not to give me a migraine.
Another good thing about this hotel is its location along the route of the jeep to and from the airport. If you want more information, you could visit their website at:
