Century Park Hotel

2016 Elections has brought so much busyness for me, workwise.  One busy weekend of April, our small family sans Papa Leo, found ourselves billeted at Century Park Hotel.  It was not a planned stay, since we only book the said hotel because it was close to my office and quite cheaper than the other hotels nearby.

I booked an overnight accommodation in a Superior Room with breakfast for two less than a week prior to our date of stay, through TravelBook.ph.  It cost me Php4500.  This is so much cheaper than booking at the hotel website or any other websites, or walking-in.  A superior room at Century Park Hotel costs Php6900.  

It was a very busy day at the office and we arrived at Century Park Hotel past 11PM to check-in.  We had a surprise because their superior rooms are all fully booked so they decided to upgrade us into the Junior Suite. J 

Our stay at Century Park was a quick one, but it didn’t hinder us to have luxurious stay.  We slept, we rested, we recreated by swimming at the pool, Here’s why:

Room – 4.5 out of 5.  Since we were upgrade to a Junior Suite, I couldn’t say anything bad about the room.  It’s a very spacious room with a total area of 67sqm.  It has a queen size bed, a very big sitting area, a walk in closet area, a spacious bathroom with a bathtub.  It has an LED TV, refrigerator, safety deposit box, and complete set of toiletries in the bathroom.  The only sad thing about the room is that the refrigerator doesn’t have anything inside it when it should have a mini bar. L  But then again, it’s a small issue, and not really a problem.

Beautiful partition holding the LED television.  I’d like to have something like this at home.

Amenities – 4.5 out of 5.  Century Park Hotel is an old hotel, but it has a lot of amenities that can complete a staycation.  There are two swimming pools, restaurants, function rooms, and a gym.  Also, the hotel entrance has an x-ray scanner for luggage and bags.  They have roving civilian guards too in the lobby and reception area.  Talk about good security.  I took out a 0.5 for amenities because you can borrow towels in the swimming pool area but cannot bring it in your room.  I think as hotel guests, you should be able to just log your room number and borrow the towel – but that’s their policy, we should respect it.  

Staff – 4 out of 5.  The staffs at Century Park Hotel are nice.  They are courteous, they smile when they greet you, they will push the elevator button for you, they will answer your questions nicely, they even gave us free drinks, they will help you in any concern you may have (constant request for cold water for example hehe), but I honestly feel that there’s something lacking.  I cannot pinpoint the exact reason, but I think there is something missing lang.

Food – 4.5 out of 5.  This is one of the best buffet breakfast I have every tried.  It has a lot of choices and the foods do taste delicious.  You can get as many servings as you want with the various selections.  The only issue I have is that I wasn’t able to see where they put the bacon, so when I get a hold of the bacon, I was expecting it to be delicious, but sadly, it’s not. L However, overall, I find the buffet breakfast included in our room to be very satisfactory.

Location – 5 out of 5.  Century Park Hotel is located at Pasay City, in front of Harrison Mall.  It has a very strategic location in the city near malls and amusement parks.

Value for Money – 4 out of 5.  I always believe that hotels in Metro Manila are so much expensive.  But I think, with the location, the room, and amenities that Century Park has gave a good value for our money.

We had a very quick stay at Century Park Hotel but it didn’t hinder us to have a luxurious one.  J
