I found Ellis Ecotel thru Agoda.com, an online site that provides hotel reservations. I was looking for a cheap but chic hotel, one that's decent but not too basic. I predicted a gloomy weather over the weekend so I thought it was a good idea to get a nice hotel room where I could leisurely spend the day in case I couldn't go out. True enough, my stay in Legazpi was wetter than I had expected. I stayed indoor most of the time.
save for few ones I met along the corridors.
The receptionist asked a male hotel crew to accompany me to my room located at the upper floor. As we walked past closed doors and narrow hallways, I began to wonder if the rooms we passed by were actually occupied. Knowing that they were would somehow give me a sense of comfort, however false it may seem.
And oh, most rooms have no windows. Mine didn't have one.
Room rate: US$29.00 a night for superior queen. Booked thru Agoda.
Ellis Ecotel promises to make anyone's stay comfortable and enjoyable with their amenities.
-Hot and cold water (Water can get extremely hot)
Since the hotel is right inside the mall, you won't have to go far if you want to eat. There are various restaurants and a coffee shop at Embarcadero.
