Azalea Residences Baguio

Arghhh, I need a break from this boring unemployed life, I need to escape this city life,  I need a vacation! Whew, thanks to Azalea Residences, this bored kid from Manila had an awesome weekend staycation at the City of Pines. Well actually, I went there for a hotel review.

This is actually my first hotel review, and I really don't know how to write one. So to make things easier for my readers, I'll be grading my weekend stay at Azalea Residences Baguio with stars. Five stars is the highest and a single star is the lowest. Below are five items that I always consider in choosing my lodging place.

Location  - ★★★★★

Azalea's location is very ideal, so I'm giving them 5 stars. Erected along Leonard Wood Loop, this brand new hotel provided us an easy access to the heart of Baguio city. Traffic noise never reached us so it's a big plus.

Service and Facilities  - ★★★★

Their service is outstanding, everyone is your friend at Azalea Residences. When you ask them with something, they'll provide it right away. Plus, all of them were smiling, thus they made my day smiling as well. They also have Wi-Fi. So I'm giving them 4 stars - because the make up room service never reached our room even though we already told the chambermaid.

Food and Drinks - ★★★★★

There's a cafeteria and a mini bar at the ground floor that serve buffet and refreshing cocktail mixes. I've tried their food and I loved it so much. In breakfast for instance, they serve a variety of food from rice meals to bread and butter, from hot chocolate drink to freshly brewed coffee. I'm giving them 5 stars for that.


Cleanliness and Coziness - ★★★★★

Cozy rooms await each visitor. Aside from the comfortable queen-sized bed, convertible sofa bed and flat screen TVs, each room also has a balcony and a fully furnished kitchen perfect to test your cooking skills. The bathroom is large enough for two persons brushing teeth at the same time. Of course, the rooms are perfect clean. 5 stars again for coziness and cleanliness.

Affordability - ★★★

Since I'm a budget traveler, I'm giving them a grade of 3 stars. Azalea Residences can provide you a blend of grandeur and contemporary luxury, but that will be quite painful in your wallet. Great service comes with expensive price. People who can afford to spend thousands of cash for a lodging place must try Azalea Residences, it's definitely worth it. The cost of this hotel is not as expensive as luxury hotels but don't expect it to be as cheap as budget inns, it's in the middle of the two.
