While browsing on the Deal Grocer website, I saw a great deal worth Php. 2,700 for an overnight stay in a deluxe room and free breakfast for 2 at The Exchange Regency Hotel. I find the price very cheap, and so I instantly called their reservations hotline to inquire if my preferred date is open, after confirmation I bought the voucher and send it thru the hotel’s reservation email: firstname.lastname@example.org, within a few minutes I have a room booked!
Right from this transaction I observed their great service, however, upon researching on different blogs with reviews about the hotel my expectations aren’t really high… The main statement is: YOU GET WHAT YOU PAID FOR. The hotel’s location is very convenient. Just across BenPres building, a few walks from the Philippine Stock Exchange Building and about 2 streets away from megamall, It really is the hotel for a traveler who wants to have a place to stay within the business hub. The restaurants to dine in are plenty and the commuting to and from the hotel is never a problem.
About the room:
- The key card is needed in the elevator to access the floors and room
- The deluxe room is small but the furnitures are well placed so as to still present well decorated and not too crowded
- Toiletries are provided but no toothbrush
- The bathroom is small, but the door seems off in its place (I suggest that a sliding door will be better)
- Upon research, they said that the wifi is strong but during our visit it is slow
We were assigned on the 10th floor with a view of Meralco Avenue, the road noise is not much and never a bother. In the morning, we availed the free breakfast. I’ll say its okay. They should improve it more. We visited the amenities on the 3rd floor. The pool which is inviting for a swim, the fitness center which is well equipped, a little playground and golf area.
Overall the hotel is nice. Everything seems quite small but of course it’s not a grand hotel. Just the perfect size for a traveler who needs a place to stay in the city. Customer service is very much appreciated. Will go back If we want a place that’s cheap and right in the area. The statement is right. You get what you paid for.
