Circle Inn: "A literally 'Circle' inn with a bright future!" Bacolod City Hotel Tip by matt10gonzalez

Bacolod City Hotels: 31 reviews and 32 photos

What's this? A hotel that's the shape of a mini strip mall with giant circular windows? Welcome to the Circle Inn! One of Bacolod's newest and promoted hotels! (As of Feb 2008) Believe it or not, the biased ads and clichés of this hotel are amazingly, really quite true! With ambient hallways, a relaxing posh foyer and even a swimming pool and more, it's not a bad option at all to make this even your home for a month!

HOTEL ROOMS: 9 (See photos for more info)

Well, for the price you pay, the hotel really comes with nice rooms! The 1000 peso discount room I've visited had a big single bed that just like the Amrei Hotel, ONLY fits 2 (unless you have a midget size person that can squeeze in the middle) except that when the Amrei feels more homey, this feels rather, more posh. I mean, the decors, the design of the room, the orange lights, you can imagine lying down in the bed, watching TV and even feeling more stylish!

STAFF: 10

The staff as of the morning of Feb 2, 2008 were amazing: They were dressed in sexy black uniforms, had photogenic make-ups, and even though most of them still reported early to work and were about to end their morning shift, they still maintained their smiles and humor that made them 3x more beautiful! Even the guard was courteous. I hope they keep it up!

Unique Qualities: LOCATION: 5 (See photos for a picture)

This will probably be the biggest drawback for the Circle Inn. Although the hotel was smart to make rooms for retail stores, (Adding points to the location) it's still not enough to compensate: If you have a car, no problem! The parking lot here is so big like nearly like a drive-in! But what if you don't have a car? You'll have to rely on public transportation and this can be a problem here! By foot, it's at least 30 minutes (Fast pace already!) to the Lagoon and Mc. Donalds and even Jolibee in La Salle Avenue! And with no trees or anything to cover you against the rain or the sun, this could be a problem! The good part is, that at least it's not hidden inside an alley; At least it hugs the avenue so if you want to get around by jeepney, it's so fast and easy to hail one for here. But if you're destination is just the bus station, the location then is a 10 because it's only 8 minutes by foot (fast pace) to the Ceres Bus Liner station.

UNIQUE TRAITS:

It's the only hotel here I've seen that used giant circles as the windows!

COSTS:

With discount:
Double Room with aircon and bathroom- 1000 pesos
With no discount
1400 pesos

Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: It's located in Lopez Jaena Street and it's pretty far from the eateries such as Mc. Donalds, Jolibee so you'll have to rely on jeepneys and taxis.
Price: US$20-40
