I almost forgot to blog about this. The weather in Baguio is very nice from the month of December to February so I thought I'd publish this entry now for those who are planning to go up north to celebrate the holiday season. As you know, we went Baguio to unwind and feel the cool breeze of the City of Pines just last month. If you guys missed my entry on our last Baguio trip, you can read it here. We stayed at Microtel by Wyndham for a couple of nights and so this is my short review of the hotel.
Microtel follows the Victorian exterior design. The blue paint looks so cool. I love it.
Took this photo of my elder daughter at the hotel lobby. Normally, there's only one person at the front desk so this place can get crowded during check-in and check-out time.
We got a queen double room for P3,800 per night with buffet breakfast for 2. Kids who are 5 years old and below are free of charge.
Amenities for this room include a cable TV, electronic-key card entry system, radio clock, toilet and shower with hot and cold water, and individually controlled aircon.
This was the view from our hotel window. Microtel Baguio is located at the heart of the city so it is pretty much near to everything.
There are just a few things that I don't like about this hotel. I understand they don't charge a lot per night, but why the does the cable TV needs to be crappy? And, why no fridge? Good thing they have free water and unlimited coffee to those coffee addicts (not me) at the hallway near the stairs.
I suggest book Microtel if you are in a minimal budget. They have rooms for families and couples on the go. If you are a tourist using the Victory Liner bus, staying in the hotel is perfect 'cause it's just a foot away.
Use the buffet breakfast to your advantage by going there during the last 2 hours of mealtime. Their menu is normally composed of soup, salad, bread and spreads, rice and viands. Cancel your plan of having lunch outside and get a filling brunch at the hotel's restaurant instead.
Will I ever book Microtel Baguio again? Maybe.
