GoHotels Budget Hotel

Tuesday, May 25, 2010 jeffrey siy 0 Comments

The company that brought you the first low cost airline in the Philippines now brings you another service that will surely make your travel more affordable. Robinsons Land Corp opens the first budget hotel in the Philippines - GoHotels. Situated right in the heart of the metro along EDSA near Boni station, it's eye candy green and yellow colored logo definitely reminds you of its sister company Cebu Pacific. Their room rates can go as low as P388++ per night! Now I wonder if there will come a time they will offer Piso rooms similar to Piso fares.

Win 1 of 5 overnight stays at GoHotels
by joining the promo below.



GoHotels is the choice for smart travelers looking for an affordable place to stay. All-in-all GoHotels has 223 rooms. 93 of which have queen-sized beds while the other 130 has twin beds. There are also special handicap rooms that has a spacious bathroom with steel support bars.



All of GoHotels' rooms come equipped with an LCD TV, safe, rain shower and handheld shower and FREE Wi-Fi access. Soap, shampoo, towels and tissue are included in the room. Only thing missing is the slippers and the toothbrush! But with such a low price, who are you to complain?





Get a good nights sleep with GoHotels' 100% cotton sheet beds. You also have the option of using either a chiropractic or fiberfill pillow.



However, if you are sensitive to light, my advise is that you get the room without the windows. The morning light seeps through the blinds of the rooms with windows.


Blinds should be thicker


Wallpaper window

For such low prices, you wouldn't think GoHotels would go the extra mile. But they do! They have security cameras placed on hallways which they monitor at the lobby. They also use electronic key cards that can be used for rooms and hotel door entrance.

As of the moment, their parking is still FREE of charge so if you are bringing a car, you may park at the basement.

GoHotels plans to open other branches at Tacloban, Palawan, Dumaguete as well as other locations near Robinsons mall and where Cebu Pacific has flights.

You may start booking yourself a room by logging on to gohotels.ph. To get the lowest price possible, you need to book your room early. The earlier you book, the lower the room rate because prices are contingent on occupancy at the time of booking.
