As mentioned in my previous post about our Chalet Baguio Experience, we did hotel hopping in Baguio City, Philippines during our 5 days vacation last April 2013. The Golden Pine Hotel is the second hotel that we stayed on.
Originally, we are booked for just one night but since I got fever on our 4th day we have decided to extend for one more night. It was a pleasant stay, though.
The Golden Pine Hotel is very accessible as it is situated near Burnham Park and Cafe by the Ruins, one of the restaurants we went to. Roaming around the area, you will find several establishments like a small supermarket and drugstores, and food chains such as McDonalds. Compared to Chalet Hotel, our room is facing the road so we hear outside noise during the night that somehow affected our good night sleep. Good thing, our hotel is air conditioned and the outside noise is minimized. I recommend that you request for a room that’s on the other side.
Below are the photos of Golden Pine Hotel lobby.
Our booking includes free plated breakfast that can be availed in the dining area. Unlike in Chalet where breakfast coupons can be redeemed at anytime of the day, their complimentary breakfast is severed from 6AM to 10AM only. Their dining area is big and has just been repainted, I guess. See below for the photos of the dining area.
Again, the breakfast is plated which is either Continental or Filipino. And because we are Filipinos, we ordered for rice! Here are some photos of Golden Pine’s plated breakfast. Hon liked their Longanisa so he ordered it twice. They all taste good!
Our room type is the Master’s Bedroom which is really big. It is fully air-conditioned and equipped with cable TV, 24 hour running hot and cold water, and original framed antique collections and a personal ref. The in-room internet is also reliable. Password will be given by the Front Desk Officer upon check-in. There’s no built in hair dryer so I requested for it from the house keeping.
The room also has its own dining table for two and built-in cabinets. The television is an old one with huge picture tube but of still good quality. It also has it’s own balcony but the door is always close which is fine with us. Below are some pictures of Golden Pine Hotel Master’s Bedroom, Room #309.
The bathroom is also big and clean but kinda’ rusty. The faucets and stained bath tub and tiles tell itself. The door was also recently repaired but still functioning well. It is also equipped with all the basic bath essentials like soap, toothbrush, towels, shower caps and shampoos and conditioners. We never tried the bath tub.
In our two nights in the hotel, we have our dinner served in our room. I’d say that the price and servings is fair enough and they taste great. Their service is fast, too.
I got fever in our last night so I ordered for Arrozcaldo. The price is Php100 or roughly $2.30. Sorry I lost lost the pic of it.
These pastas are our last ordered food before we left the hotel. – Spaghetti Bolognese and Pasta with Cheesy sauce. Each costs Php140 or roughly $3.30.
