This is an old, small, 2-storey hotel right smack in the middle of Rizal Boulevard. I found it charming, I stayed here about 6 years ago and it hasn't changed much. Wooden plank floors, We got a family room with 2 beds. The sleeping area was sufficient for 2 adults and 2 kids. But the bed was not enough so we ordered and paid for an additional bed. Beware, they only give you a mattress on the floor, we found out that the lining of the banket was a white shower curtain. I know, it had holes where you attach it to the curtain rod.
A/c was good enough for a hot day. The room had a balcony that opens and you can sip coffee looking at the boulevard. Nice!
The bathroom was small. We were given the really tiny, thin bath soaps and shampoo was in a dispenser. We asked for toothbrush, but they have none. But hairdryer is available. Good thing 7-11 is just stone's throw away if you wish better toiletries.
The room did not come with breakfast so we went to their cafe, Don Atilano, for ours. There were 2-3 other families being served and there was only 1 waiter taking and serving orders. It took a long time for breakfast (just fried items) to be served. Turns out that only one cooks. One couple had to back out. I even had time to grab pictures at the nearby Silliman University, and breakfast hasn't even arrived!
Parking is scarce so if you're taking a car, it's first come, first served.
Location is excellent. Staff are friendly enough.
