Hotel XYZ, even from the outside, exudes a modern vibe. From the lobby, you could already see how they spent effort in designing the place making it look cozy and stylish that I never even knew that a hotel like this exists in the province and a city that was just hit by a typhoon.
We booked a standard twin room on the 4th floor. Room was small but I didn't bother as it looked so cozy and clean. It didn't felt like you were cramped in a small space as they made use of the mirror effect in a stylish way. I specifically love the bed and the comforter. I always had a hard time waking up as I find the bed so comfy and soft. AC was working properly
The room comes with a flat screen TV equipped with cable channels. It also comes with a fridge, kettle and flashlight and a spacious cabinet with hangers.
Plus points for having a electric socket beside the bed!
Bathroom was surprisingly spacious. It was well equipped with the essentials.
Water pressure and heater was working fine. Shower area has good amount of space and there's also a wire where you could hang your clothes or towel. Looks odd but I say, it's pretty practical.
The inhouse restaurant called ABCD, and Illy cafe that offers pastries and coffee is located at the lobby. Breakfast can be served at your room (call the kitchen for room service) or you may go take it at ABCD cafe. You get to choose from their set menu. I may say that they have one of the best breakfast food I had. I specifically love their longanisa and tocino which has a generous serving. Interior of ABCD Cafe was equally stylish and modern as how the theme goes throughout the hotel.
During our stay, there was a construction going on on the upper floor which they advised us about upon checking in. On 2nd day, we already came back late at night and as we were all tired and wanted to have a longer sleep we asked the front desk if they could delay the construction for awhile as we are trying to sleep till late the next day before we get back to Manila. Nice of them to fulfill our wish as we were able to sleep well that night and wasn't bothered by any noise from the construction in the morning.
What the hallway looks like. Adequately lit with ambient music playing.
Being relatively new, almost everything was still in place. Hopefully, they'll be able to maintain it as I'll definitely be my first choice of accommodation if I ever get back to Tacloban.
