The Contemporary Hotel
Ranked #30 of 64 Hotels in Quezon City
Reviewed 13 March 2010

LOCATION
This hotel is in a central location. It is off a main street, and there are a handful of restaurants within walking distance, as well as a supermarket. The main shopping centre chain (SM) is also within walking distance; SM Centrepoint. Location wise, there are plenty of tricycles parked near the entry, but you must check the prices first because they will ask for higher than average rate to take you close distances!

We stayed here because it was the recommended hotel for a wedding we were attending. For future though, I would stay at a different property.

HOTEL
The overall appearance of the hotel was quite tired. The customer service was very minimal, and the “foyer” furniture had small tears in the seats. The hotel has no elevator and I would not recommend this hotel to travellers that have elders with them, as there are a number of stairs and long corridors.

The hotel does have a pool. Again, this area is quite tired. The seated area with tables and chairs had umbrellas that had tears and there was no staff manning this area at the time.

Our room rate included breakfast, but it was a very limited breakfast - no fancy buffet arrangement with meal choice. We ended up ordering Jolibee (Filipino version of McDonalds) to be delivered to the hotel.

ACCOMMODATION
I believe we were staying in a Deluxe Room.

The main room entry door is the standard push lock key type (not swipe card keys), and I was a little disturbed when we first arrived. Our room had an odd smell, so we called for the staff to assist and she advised us they just sprayed the room with insecticide!

We did ask for a different room there after, which they were happy to provide, but following that comment it did dampen our stay for the remainder.

The room however that we did stay in was quite large in size. The air-conditioning was not centralized, but it was the click dial box version near the edge of the window / wall. The room also had a very small 34cm box TV at the opposite end of the room. The bathroom was very basic.

SERVICE
The service was quite poor - very limited. It felt that the same person that was making coffees was also the bell-boy and then attended to other duties as well.

OVERALL THOUGHTS
I’d stay elsewhere. Since we weren’t familiar with the area and this was the recommended property, we were relying on those that suggested this hotel. However, better luck next time!

TIP – Definitely eat at the local restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. As long as you’re not by yourself, the area has busy traffic, and the shopping mall would provide you better comforts.
