There’s more to the western part of Panay than Boracay. In fact, there are many interesting places in the provinces of Aklan, Antique and western Iloilo that just amazes without driving all the way to Caticlan. Ruins, churches, food and rowdy festivals are there waiting. The elongated room with just a single bed at one end near an aircondition unit and the draped window that led to a small veranda and a small table and cabinet at the other end near the door.
It was spartan and bunk like with nary a decor except for the curtain’s ruffles. The blue sheets and yellow curtain provides some cheer on an otherwise bare space. But I can spend all day staying in this kind of room, thanx to the complementary wifi connection.
Eden’s Apartelle was where I stayed last year when it was still a few months old. It’s not cheap, by the way, at P800 per single room in an apartment type of accommodation better suited for families.
As the name suggests, its an apartelle and the ground and second floors are actually inhabited. Rooms in the third floor on the other hand are still available and are being rented out per day.
Each space has a common area that includes the toilet and the former connects the two spartan rooms. There’s a wash area too just opposite where the TV is situated.
There are no free breakfasts and, based on my last stay, the wifi has become spotty or nonexistent but most of the time, another hotel’s free wifi signal does reach the third floor. However, it pays to have a backup connection.
The place is situated at a residential area and thus far from the noise and is a couple of minutes walk to the main plaza. Do take note that during the Ati-atihan Festival, the room I stayed increases 266% at P3,000.
