After taking us to the Window of the World and the shopping district, our tour guide, Joan finally took us to our hotel. It’s a small, old hotel in town and the name is Gorgeous Fad.
Our hotel turned out to be a great disappointment. After giving us our keycards, we went up to our rooms. The corridors smells musty and is dimly lit.
I was expecting our room number to be 1408.
Remember the horror movie starring John Cusack?
Anyway, so we enter our room and guess what we found? a not-so-clean toilet and toilet bowl.
Our room is very spacious and looks like it has been recently renovated but it is dimly lit as well and the air conditioner doesn’t work as it should. peanutbutter♥ was worried and a little paranoid that somebody might break in the hotel window since we’re facing the busy street. The room has tv but I don’t think it has cable. We couldn’t find any english channel.
Breakfast is not something I wanna talk about. I didn’t even take a photo. It was a great disappointment. Coffee sucks and tastes like boiled socks that has been used for a week. I had to buy instant coffee at the convenience store outside the hotel.
Probably the only nice thing about this hotel is that it has a convenience store just outside the hotel where you can buy everything you need. There’s also some food shop, restaurants and fruit stands. We even tried the weird street soup the night we arrived.
Dorsett’s rooms maybe small but I very much prefer staying there.
Gosh! I had room 8405, and we had the same tour. 😀 We have the same opinion about this tour—and yep I’m pinay too.
