Finding a hard time looking for an affordable yet clean hotel around Quezon City? Hostel and Cheap Hotels are your best choice if you are a traveler on a budget.

Deluxe - 3,000 PHP / 60 USD per night for 2 pax

Some rooms have a FREE international call (selected rooms). Access to swimming pool, jacuzzi, sauna and steam bath and access to hotel movie theater. 

If you do not like the food choices at the Icon Hotel's in-house restaurant, you have a lot of restaurants, pizza parlors and a local restaurant to choose from.

  4. For Holy Week this year, we spent a lot of time across the street from this hotel at Luxent Hotel because that is where my brother checked in. I was curious to know now the interiors of Icon would look like, and now I know. Thank you.

  5. Whoa! The ambiance with all the icons on the walls looks very nice. Very stylish indeed.

  6. Haven't been to this hotel but the rooms are not bad and location is great. You seemed like you enjoyed your stay. :)

  7. What a very modern looking hotel with clean lines and spare features. I loved that reception desk and snazzy blue lights... It sold me on wanting to visit! :)

Beach-Lovin: La Thalia Beach Resort

It's Summer time now! And the best place to treat yourself from our hectic work by going to the beach - a quiet place, far from the hustling and bustling city,  and just have a total relaxation at the ocean. It's been a while since I had a visit to the beach and I had such a great time spending my 2 days at the La Thalia Beach Resort in Bauan Batangas.
