I keep on coming back to Dumaguete for no particular purpose other than to appreciate its laidback vibe. Whenever I stay a night or two in the City of Gentle People, I choose GoHotels Dumaguete, which I think is the best value accommodation option there.
GoHotels Dumaguete is adjacent to Robinsons Place Dumaguete, so traveler needs as well as an array of dining options are within reach. Located near the mall’s transportation terminal, the hotel is only a few minutes away from the city center of Dumaguete and its attractions.
GoHotels is a chain of value-for-money, no frills hotels with a number of properties across the country and a few more in the pipeline. Its hotels target smart travelers who wish to pay for only the essentials at inexpensive rates.
Bright yellow, green, and cream paints that covered the walls made the room feel fun yet still classy, while ambient yellow lighting set a relaxing mood.
The room is complete with essential traveler needs: two comfortable Windsor beds with high-quality linens and fluffy pillows, an LCD cable TV, an electronic safe, a number of power points, and a nice jet shower in the clean bathroom. Wireless internet is complimentary.
Its staff are friendly and courteous; they clearly embody the fun vibe GoHotels goes for.
VALUE FOR MONEY
The quality rooms and service can surprisingly be had for little money, especially when booked early online. Typical nightly rates go for less than 1000 PHP. GoHotels frequently holds room sales that are too tempting to pass up on—rates can be cut as much as half than the usual.
