ABC Hotel in Angeles City Review: Not for Everyone!



ABC Hotel Angeles City Main Lobby

This hotel booking was made by my sister-in-law last month before she received her US Visa, thinking she and her two kids will still be spending Christmas here in the Philippines. Before their flight last December 18, 2017, she gave me this 2-night hotel accommodation for December 23 to 25. It's a free stay on one of the most expensive hotels in Angeles City... who was I to refuse?

ABC Hotel is located along Don Juico, Malabanias, Angeles City... the street where you'll see tons of foreigners walking with their Filipina ladies and girlfriends.

As we entered the hotel, the first thing I noticed was the whole place is dark. No elevators, just a narrow staircase.

As we entered the room, my husband immediately complained about the smell of cigarette. The staff insisted that it's a non-smoking room so the smell might be caused by something else. It's only our first day so we just chose to let it go.

The room is quite spacious. I like the bathroom because it has a separate shower area and a separate bathtub. Lots of towels and 2 large bath robes. Speaking of convenience.

The bed is the best! Large, super soft, but firm! There was once a foreign friend (a friend of my sister-in-law) who told everyone that ABC Hotel's bed feels like heaven. He's definitely right.
And as for the stuff inside the ref and drawers, you might want to keep them out of your children's reach. First, they're mostly for adults. Second, they're really expensive! A coke in can costs Php100!

The accommodation doesn't have a free breakfast. The price of their meals starts at Php 400. So it's a good thing that the hotel is surrounded by restaurants and food stores.

We can see the pool, garden, and bar from our window.

On our second day, we left the hotel to celebrate the Christmas eve somewhere else. Before leaving, I made sure that our suitcase was locked because we wanted the room to be cleaned. I put in a random code and placed it inside the drawer.

When we got back, the lock was changed to "000". We couldn't think of anything else but the idea that maybe someone had tried to open our suitcase. But since we were about to check out, we let it go again.

Verdict

This hotel isn't suited for kids and families. It's perfect for partying couples without kids. For the price of Php12,968.30 for 2 nights, it's a bit pricey considering that ABC Hotel isn't for everyone. Obviously, their main target is foreigners.

Secondly, after what happened to our suitcase, I won't be personally recommending the place.

  1. We stayed at abc hotel with my australian boyfriend last month. I'm not a smoker so the smell of their non-smoking room bothered us a bit. And yeah everything's expensive. But the night life was fun so maybe we'll return here next time
