To be honest I was tired of the heat, and need to find a place to stay for a couple of days that had aircon so I could get some sleep. I was thinking of returning to the Bacolod Pension House, and though the place was ok…I wanted a little more. So I thought I would give the Circle Inn and try, and I was very pleased with the two days I spent there.
Aircon and the Circle Inn
My main purpose behind finding a place to say was needing a couple of cool evening so I could catch up with some very much needed sleep. I was exhausted from not sleeping in the heat, and with how hot it was during the day, I found it even more difficult to deal with the days with the loss of sleep. Now, don’t get me wrong, I love the heat. But since I am kind of land locked here in Bacolod City, and not teaching diving every day and missing being in the water every day, I find the heat of all the concrete in the city very difficult to deal with everyday.
The Circle Inn was chosen on a simple Google Search and a list of about 10 hotels came up. When I checked out the website on my phone, that room cost was listed for the deluxe room as PhP1480, and of course Expedia had it listed as less expensive, which was not true, since Expedia listed the room before taxes and once you added those in it was the same price that was being offered through the hotel itself. I find it interesting how misleading the cheap websites are, and I know now in Canada, its against the law when you do not advertise the real price. Just a thought.
Part of Town
I have just recently ventured into the part of town where the Circle Inn is located. It took me a few minutes to work out the Jeepneys needed in order to get downtown which by the way Shopping La Salle Libertad will do it, and it was very easy to make it to Lacson street so I could do my daily coffee at Starbucks. I would certainly decide to stay at the Circle Inn again since the rooms were very clean, the Front Desk staff polite and very helpful. The Restaurant on site had good food and not too badly priced compared to other places I have stayed. The pool though cool, very clean and refreshing. There are rooms that open directly onto the pool which would have been very very cool, though all of those were booked.
If you are in town, and in need of a place to stay, I would select this hotel in a heart beat. I really have nothing negative to say about the place.
Have a Great day!!
