    Review: The Luxury Suite (Tacloban Hotel)

    A relatively new hotel in Tacloban City downtown where Tutubi stayed at for a night and very near major schools and places in the booming city.

    From The Luxury Suite Hotel Review:

    the luxury suite tacloban hotelThe Double Room where Tutubi stayed at, located in the annex building and not on the 3rd floor of TCS Bldg.

    The Double room, with a double size bed, comes at a price of PhP750.00 (about $16.00) a night, is already cheap by any standard in a city (you won't find anything like this in Manila but that's another story). Though there's hardly any space left to move around the room as it's almost occupied by the bed, space constraints posed no problem to Tutubi who just needed a place to doze off for the night after watching the day's news on the 14" television (there's no minibar on the double room, available only in a suite)

    Toilet and shower room are clean and almost immaculate (probably due to it's really being new) with water heater available.

    Downside: the hotel lobby is on the third floor, no elevators available so you're forced to take the stairs. Good for those who want to exercise but bad for people "gifted" with arthritis.

    Breakfast is not included in the room rates but there's Gerry's Grill Tacloban branch on the ground floor of the same building where you can order meals for about PhP120.00 (typical Filipino meals).

    Ample and secure parking space located behind TCS building with 24 hour security guard.

    Internet rentals available at the 3rd floor lobby. No information on "free wifi Internet" as Tutubi doesn't bring his laptop while traveling and prefers to be offline when wandering.

    All in all, The Luxury Suite really has value for money for it's clean facilities, price and proximity to your "where the action is" in Tacloban City.

    Have stayed in this hotel on recently Jan 26-27, 2012. They still charge the rate as posted and generally the hotel is good and clean. Affordable in its class. Location is very good since it's near fastfood resto, van van terminal, dept stores, and not so noisy area being in the downtown.

    Downside: water pressure was not consistent as water flows varied. There was no water at faucet and shower at noon. Take a shower in the morning or night;-)Water heater was not working either.

    Gerry Grills transferred to another location.
