LAOAG: 02 - Texicano Hotel

Texicano Hotel has a new building and an old one. I chose a room at the old one, without bath. What does that even mean? Well, it means that there is a shared bathroom just next to your room which you would obviously have to share with other guests. Did I just state the obvious there? I paid PhP250 for a room which I imagine to be what a typical dorm room somewhere in the university belt would look like. There is a fan, a desk, a bed, a rectangular semi-creepy mirror, and two sets of drapes covering the view of the main road from your bedroom window, which unfortunately does nothing to shut off the constant noise of motorists passing by. No, curtains are not  soundproof.  The key comes with an adorable key chain, which is a cute block of wood that could double as a potent weapon if you decide to go strolling at night.

They do have Wi-Fi but none of two or three of their servers reached my room. If you really need to use the Internet, then feel free to stay in the common areas, although I would advise against that at night because there seems to be a few people checked in, and the place gives me some sort of creepy vibe, maybe because the layout of the building reminds me of those old houses that they use in horror movies. But then again, PhP250. This is one of the cheapest accommodations I have ever stayed at. The necessities are bare but they are there, and that is the point. The place serves its purpose well as a stop-over accommodation for half a day. Besides, if you want air-conditioned rooms that are new, they do have them under PhP1000, and so it is still a good bargain. As for the location, everything in this city seems to be within walking distance, so this is really a non-issue. Tricycles are everywhere if your legs happen to be too lazy.
