Amélie Hotel Manila celebrates Chinese New Year with Grand Opening

Amélie Hotel Manila, which is named after the owner's granddaughter, formally opened its doors last Thursday (February 19). The hotel's grand opening was celebrated during Chinese New Year; and it was indeed a great welcome to a new year that's filled with new beginnings. Now, the Art Deco inspired 70-room lodging, which is located in the old-world neighbourhood of Malate, is also surrounded by landmarks that are both rich in history and culture. It is also a short walk away from Robinson's Place Manila, a major shopping mall.

A world-class hotel in Laguna: Microtel, South Forbes

My best friend got married last December, and her wedding was held in St. Benedict Church by Ayala Westgrove Heights. Since it was a destination wedding, my family and I decided to stay in Laguna for the night to avoid the late drive back to Manila. 

Several factors came with looking for a proper accommodation, like the location for example. I, for one, needed a hotel that wasn't too far from the church or reception venue (Angelfields Nature Sanctuary). I also needed a nice lodging that would accommodate the needs of my family, especially with an 8-month old baby traveling with us. That's when I found Microtel, South Forbes. It was so perfect because not only was it 5 minutes away from the church, it was also a 30-minute drive to the reception venue.

This world-class Laguna hotel is located inside South Forbes, "a 500-acre, world-class township with residential, entertainment, academic, and sports components that encompasses the Metro Sta. Rosa-Silang-Tagaytay growth corridor". We loved that it was just minutes away from Nuvali Sta. Rosa, Paseo de Sta. Rosa, Tagaytay City and Laguna Technological Park.

Davao City: Daylight Inn - A no frills, value for money lodging

If given the extra funds when traveling, I would book a hotel where all my comforts will be met. So you can imagine how hesitant I was into booking a room at Daylight Inn, Davao. But since I was following a certain budget, and only needed a place to stay in for one night, I took my chances there. Surprisingly, I had a good experience. They even honored my reservation through text message. So that was a plus for me. By the way, this recount was from last year, January 2014 to be exact.

Anniversary-Worthy Hotel in Makati: Best Western, A.venue Suites

It has been more than a year since Rubel and I celebrated our 6th anniversary at Best Western, A.venue Suites (December 2013). I would've blogged about it sooner. But time just got the best of me!

Malaysia Hotel: Tune Hotels, Downtown Kuala Lumpur

In our brief time in KL, we spent our days sleeping in the comforts of Tune Hotels, Downtown Kuala Lumpur. It was a hassle-free stay, as we didn't experience any problems from the booking stage to checking out from the accommodations (we loved the staff at Tune, as they were super courteous and helpful). We booked our stay from November 16-18 and 20-22, 2013 (we were in Penang in between these dates), and only had to pay PHP1,500 or 120 Malaysian Ringgit per night.

We availed of the Double Room, which we paid to have a 12-hour AC use, and a day's worth of Wi-Fi access.
