Walk with Cham in Eco Hotel Tagaytay.



During Mike and I's wedding location hunting in Tagaytay, we opted to spend a night in one of the more affordable hotels in the city.

Eco Hotel is located just right across Ayala Serin Mall along Aguinaldo Highway. It was one of the budget hotels along the road so we settled for it since we were not into the whole R&R thing at that moment. 

We discovered this hotel through a website/application we recently heard, HotelsCombined.com -  a website which allows you to see the best hotel price from all the top travel sites. And as we were able to compare the prices of Eco Hotel offered by these travel sites, we were able to easily make a decision on where to book. Indeed, it's very convenient for travelers like us.

Ayala Serin Mall


Eco Hotel, which has 16 bedroom accommodation is the basic definition of a green hotel. True to its name, Eco Hotel's rustic wooden facade is covered with green vines. Its cozy exterior looked inviting. 

Rustic and Green

Lobby & First Floor
The interior showcases recycled and repurposed furniture. Wood planks, plants and recycled items are everywhere. Walls are white brick finish and the flooring is plain cement

The lady greeted us warmly and then after securing our payment she handed us the key to our room. 


Lobby


Standard Garden View
Our room is located at the ground floor just right beside the lobby. 

Our door
The room is very compact. Rustic and wooden best describes it. It has air-conditioning, a double bed, en suite bathroom, cabled TV and WiFi. Kindly take note that they do not have a closet or a telephone. Despite how small it was, I love the details and the lighting of the room. 

Standard Garden View

Bed
The double bed is covered with clean white sheets and enclosed in walls of pine to capture that fresh pine scent. It also has a view of the garden.

Bathroom
Hot and cold shower, toilet with bidet and lavatory outside the bathroom. Take note that they do not have toiletries what so ever but they do have towels for two.

Complimentary Wine
Despite the absence of toiletries and other amenities, they do offer complimentary red wine in a glass for their visitors which makes them unique from the other budget hotels I've experienced.

The choices for plated breakfast are the following:
-Daing na Bangus with egg, plain rice or garlic rice
-Pork Tocino with egg, plain rice or garlic rice
-Beef Tapa with egg, plain rice or garlic rice

I chose Bangus while Mike ordered Beef Tapa. Each plate is also served with brewed coffee or hot tea with seasonal fruits as side dish.

The third floor gives a good view of the Taal Lake on one side and the highway on the other side.

This would also be a perfect spot at night

For guests who want a no frills accommodation, affordable, convenient location and don't mind staying in a compact room, Eco Hotel might fit your preference.
