With the heavy traffic that seems to be a normal thing for the Filipinos living in Metro Manila, sometimes, getting a room for a day near the place of an important event that you will be attending is a smart move to get away with the hassle and exhaustion. Well, with the important event that my high school friends and I will be attending that is a wedding, we could not agree to look haggard on that day – especially that we are part of the entourage.
Last December, we had found the comfort of home in The Linden Suites. It is a 4-star hotel in Ortigas Center where malls, food establishments, and convenience store are walking distance. The hotel looks very humble by looking at the facade of the building; it has less decorative ornaments and with a not so wide drop-off point, I could not expect more.
Linden Suites Lobby
The lobby has a good number of seats for the guests to wait and the staff at the entrance area have done their job well by getting in our stuff to our hotel room.
As we get into the room, we were very surprised with how SPACIOUS the place is. We got this “one bedroom suite” for P5,000 no breakfast and for 4 pax. The rate was under a corporate account through our friend so I am not sure with the difference in its regular rate.
There are cooking pans, plates, utensils, ref, oven, percolator, and a stove so cooking here is really allowed. Just take a look at the photo below where our shopping bags were also captured. LOL.
We bring liquors to enjoy the night! Yes, we booked for 4 pax but we’re 6 in the photo. Why? It’s because the 1 couple wanted to go solo!
The dining area and the living room are closed to one another but not close enough. It was really that spacious.
There’s also a study table beside the TV where I placed my laptop. (Yes, I have a part-time job).
This is the bedroom and we also asked for an extra bed. The room is clean but the glass window was not that clear. Perhaps, it’s because of the rain.
There’s also a TV in the bedroom!
The comfort room (but there’s no bidet!) is also large.
Wi-Fi: Linden only allows two devices to connect to their WiFi. The Wi-Fi is okay.
The Linden Suites is a good place to stay especially if with friends and family since the room is not cramped. The airconditioning is also great and the yellowish lights feel upscale to me. The hotel is very accessible to almost anything you might need, however, the traffic here during the day is just really normal. I already feel sorry for the foreigners who have to adapt to the hells of transportation we have in our city. Well, traffic is normal in our daily lives. I was not able to check their pool area since I got there so late and we were needed to have our make up on the next day. morning. So anyway, the hoteliers have delivered good service with us since whatever we asked for were attended right away – the chinawares, the extra comforter, and the extra towel. Thanks for the hospitality, The Linden Suites!
