The Challenge Is On!

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

Just when I thought that looking for a place in Manila to stay for 1½ to 2 weeks was easy came the struggle of looking for one. The challenge is definitely on!

Madde and I are only students therefore finding an affordable place to stay when in Manila is a must. I've Googled for thousands of hotels for days. Unfortunately, an overnight stay in a somehow nice hotel isn't that wallet friendly. After giving up on hotel search, renting a condo unit has came up to mind. I've managed to find affordable condo units however, are already fully booked for February. Hmm... okey then. This is tough!

Can't afford a hotel room, no condo unit available --- it's time for me to try the next choice --- inns. My best way of locating inns that are considered to be good is to go through online reviews. I've come across two highly recommended inns within the Quezon City area: Fersal Inn and Casa Clementina. Looks okey to me. Fortunately, these two aren't fully booked however - no wi-fi. *sigh* Studying online is obviouly impossible without the magic of the internet. Since we will be needing the room/s during the last week of February, I will still have enough time to check for more choices. I will already be setting foot in Manila on the 31st of January. I am pretty confident that within a week, I'll be able to finally come up with a decision. If not, I'll shout out for HELP!

  21. Hello Mariuca! Thanks a lot. I arrived safely two days ago.

    Accommodation for my friends are solved. It's just near my dad's place in Manila so I might just stay with my dad or if not, with my cousins who also live near the hotel.

    Hugs!
