Its one of the newest hotels in Tuguegarao City and the second branch with the first located downtown. I stumbled into it when I was searching online for a place to stay. Although I didn’t know that it was located in another part of the city (just beside the cemetery), I was thankful that I stayed here as I just spent most of my time in the room.

I like the well appointed rooms. Its clean, spacious and minimalist with free wifi. The bed is comfortable and has well appointed lighting that makes the space all the more cozy. Curiously, it has a small well ventilated space that can be shuttered close from the bedroom and serves as the smoking area. Even here, there are nice touches.

Contrasting with the minimalist approach but tastefully done rooms the lobby, stair area as well as corridors have interesting yet homey decors. It has lots of earth tones, modern furniture that uses indigenous materials.

It’s actually located within a compound that has a gasoline station in it. Not really an ideal setup but it has a convenience store as well as Felicita’s, a popular restaurant that offers food and, my favorite pansit (noodle) dish.

Actually, as I was just in Tuguegarao to fill a craving of pansit batil patung, I didn’t venture out of the hotel except to and from the airport. I just stayed there the whole time and went to Felicitas for the sumptuous pansit both batil patung and cabagan.

What about the price? Well, I was quite surprised that with the kind of rooms for a new hotel, it only cost me P900 per day. And that’s quite a deal for me already. Check the hotel out when you’re in Tuguegarao City.
