2014 Jan: Philippines: Iloilo: Days Hotel

Where to stay in Iloilo?
I prefer the boutique hotels in Smallville area, but these are pretty much new so they still have fewer reviews online and much are not yet found on printed maps.  If you stay here, there is unending night parties on the streets.

We also considered Sarabia Manor Hotel & Convention Center, but decided to stay in Days Hotel Iloilo.

Price: Above Average. 110USD for Classic Deluxe Room 

Location: Good.  Days Hotel is less than 20-30 minutes away from SM City.  It is located on 4F and 5F of The Atrium Mall at the Capitol, Cor Gen. Luna-Bonifacio Drive.  Easily accessible by jeepney and cab.


Check-in Experience: Not the Best.  Strict to its check-in at 1 pm, and while waiting for it sleeping at the lobby is prohibited (they will really wake you up).



Room: Very Good.  Feels like Im not in the province, of course given above average for its cost, I must expect something better and it is indeed.  Cozy feeling, clean white and soft bed, well lighted, ample mirrors, television with cable channels, and free newspaper every morning.

They also offer free coffee and tea, good thing that the drinking water thermostat is working.




Housekeeping: Good. The room and bathroom are kept clean.  Toiletries and towels are also provided.  I chose this hotel because of its rain shower. 


Culinary Experience: Good
They have a bit expensive buffet.  But don’t worry since it is just above the mall, there is food court in the 2F.  Also, ground floor is a Supermarket, there are a lot of food stalls and pasalubongs where you can buy from.

Issues and Suggestions:
Please check the wifi provider, since it did not work for the past 3d2n that we stayed there.
