After our staycation last New Year’s Eve at Herald Suites Makati, I was looking for a much affordable hotel that can accommodate my relatives coming from the province and they were looking for a homey type of hotel but for an affordable price that accommodates 3 persons in 1 room. Beside Herald Suites is Franchise One Hotel and the reception of Franchise One suggested me to go to their sister hotel Saint Illian’s Inn which is just about 5-7 minutes walk from their hotel. On the same street of Franchise One Hotel, I found Saint Illian’s Inn.
If you look outside the building it looks an old dormitory/apartment building with vines all over the facade. Beside the hotel are residential houses and apartments. Upon entering the hotel, you will immediately see their cafeteria and the lobby. I find the hotel staff really friendly and accommodating. I asked the receptionist if they have a room good for 3 pax which is under 3,000 pesos per night with breakfast and luckily they have rooms for that.
They showed me their family room with 3 single beds, a LED tv, ensuite bathroom and at the corner of the room is a coffee table. The room is pretty small, I mean if you are traveling and staying with kids who are very playful and hyper this room is not gonna be a playground for them, lol.
Saint Illian’s Inn, Franchise One Hotel and Makati International Hotel has all DVD for free to borrow. They have tons of choices from a Romantic movie to drama, action packed film and even cartoons for our kids.
One thing I loved about this hotel is that they over a promo for longer stays, I am booking a family room for 2 nights and they offered me to pay only 3,800 PHP / 77.55 USD. Now that is a HUGE discount. I have a family of three who will stay at the hotel and they only have to shell out 1,300 PHP / 25.85 USD for 2 nights stay!
It pays huge savings if you really check on all hotels in the area and asked for a discount.
