One night in Kabayan Hotel


I never tried to spend a night in a hotel sa metro. Yeah really. Poorita ba kamo? hihihi! Ang lapit lang ng San Mateo no! Magiinarte pa ba kong mag hotel hotel. Kahit araw araw akong nag a-out of town, hindi pa rin valid sa mudra ko. Ilan tumbling lang ang distansiya namin sa Quezon City at Marikina e. hihihi! Inez Veneracion si mother pag nag-hotel ako. Baka kung anong isipin. Chos!

Pero may extrang ka-datungan ako last month kaya I tried it finally. Hindi naman super expensive. At hindi rin uber cheap. Kahit nasa kabilang kalsada lang ang Sogo di ko siya pinatulan. hahaha! The rate was just right. I mentioned previously that me and my girls went out for a day off. Kunware pagod na pagod kami sa ice skating kaya dito kami napadpad. Charot. hahaha! I booked in Kabayan Hotel 1 month ahead. Since we're three, I chose their Premium A room which is inclusive of 1 queen size and 1 single bed.

We were surprised to see a lot of people in the lobby which is good. It just means they 're doing the right thing.

Check-in was a breeze. I just showed my month old confirmation receipt and paid the remaining dues. By the way, before I reserve, I called them for the rates just to confirm if their site is always updated. I was about to pay it through bank but found out that it would be cheaper if you pay through their website. I got the room for only Php 2,180.00. You just need to pay a reservation fee of Php 192.99 using credit card. If I'm not mistaken, their agent offered it to me at a price of Php 2,850.00. That was 670.00 off. May silbi ang pagiging maurirat at kuripot.



What I like about this hotel is they offer not only complimentary breakfast but also lunch. Great! They also have free airport pickup by the way. As if naman walang ibang gumagawa nun e no. hahaha! But according to my friend, they have regular attendant assigned in NAIA 3 so pickup is not a hassle. They'll be the one to contact you as soon as your plane arrives. You may visit them at the information desk on Arrival deck.

Good advantage of this hotel is the location. Aside from cheap rates, they are centrally located at the heart of Pasay City.  If you're a regular MRT passenger na laging nagra-roundtrip katulad ko, you'll be able to see it just beside MRT Taft station (right side if you're coming from Ayala). As in pagka-park na pagka-park ng train andun na siya... may cute na logo ng magkakahawak kamay. Parang napagtripan lang ng adik. hihihi! Naalala ko tuloy ang drowing ko nung kinder. Anyway, I'll tour you around.. pardon my shots. Underwater ang gamit ko mapa- indoors or outdoors kaya wag laitin ng bonggang bongga.


Quiet. Clean. Scary. (lol!)
We passed by this hallway to our room. I was hoping it's not facing EDSA since I might hear annoying noises na mas maingay pa sakin. Ayaw!
 
Our beds
Hindi ko na maalala kung pano natulog ang isa kahit walang unan. But since the room is only good for two, we didn't asked for it. hihihi! Mahirap na. The rooms were equipped with flat cable TV, Aircon and Hot and Cold shower. Just the usual. Nothing fancy.

Umanggulo lang. Feeling pro. Chos!
The restroom is clean. Plus points for me. Toiletries are available too.

kita ang red stripes mo. Fail

Meet my friends.. Rachelle and Clara.
We slept until 10am and took our breakfast. You can ask them to deliver it to your room. If for an instance you'll be checking out a bit earlier than the check out time, you can ask them to pack it for you. Sweet isn't it? hihihi!

Tag-gutom
This is a family friendly hotel I must say. If I have extra savings, I will definitely spend a night here again. Great value for money. Oh and yeah, it's not only for balikbayans but also for backpackers. If you're coming from the provinces you can consider staying a night here. They also have branches in Cubao and Monumento.

Natawa naman ako dito! "Hindi ko na maalala kung pano natulog ang isa kahit walang unan!" Hindi ako pwedeng matulog dun, hindi ako makakatulog! Haha! Dati nung nakapagpabook kami ng sobrang aga, naisip namin na magstay diyan, kaso fully booked! Kaya ayon, hindi natuloy! Haha! Next time, agahan naming magpabook! :D

Never ko pa din naisip mag hotel sa metro, kahit mas malayo ako sa yo! Nakakatulog kasi ako sa FX kaya by the time makarating sa Talban, fully rested na hehe

If the room is only good for two, does that mean your third companion(probably the one who slept w/o the pillow LOL)did not get the complementary breakfast and lunch? It is not that expensive to pay for an extra person in the room, is it?

Been traveling to Manila a few times and I only stayed and book at Kabayan Hotel-Pasay. I like the hotel coz its cheap and accessible to MRT/LRT. Malapit lang din sa airport at sa MOA. They offer free breakfast, lunch, toiletries and wifi access.
