MY PHILIPPINES: Highway 21 Hotel, Iloilo

Stayed at the new wing of Highway 21 hotel in Iloilo through the recommendation of fellow lakwatsera Rikikay. We didn't see the old wing but I was told the rooms there are much smaller and doesn't have an elevator, just a flight of stairs so they costs less. For reservations we called a week ahead at +63 9177224321 and no deposit was required.


Highway 21 hotel is centrally located at General Luna Street and exceeded my expectations. We checked in at around 2 PM and in less than 5 minutes we we're ushered in our room at the 3rd floor. Wasn’t hoping for a lot since it is cheap and I couldn't find a lot of hotel photos on the net but our room turned out to be spacious and clean with strong hot and cold water pressure in its equally clean private bathroom.

We got the Superior room that is good for 2 people with its twin beds and paid Php1,150 (USD 26) a night. The room also comes with a huge cabinet, a cable tv, telephone, a desk plus a separate dining table. No ref though.




The staffs are courteous and really helpful, service is quick too and the restaurant in the lobby serves good tasting food with ample servings.

A guard is on duty 24 hours a day and was quick to open and assist us in getting in or out of a car. He was also armed with an umbrella when it was pouring and we really appreciated that.
 

HOW TO GET THERE: Highway21 Hotel is located in General Luna St., next to Sarabia Manor, you won't have any trouble finding it. A convenience store is at the same compound along the highway. A branch of the Bank of the Philippine Islands is across the street making the hotel's location really convenient.
