So many of you might have known that I am a teacher. A college teacher for that matter but I think I don’t always explicitly state where, right? Anyway, I teach at College of Saint Benilde for many years already and to tell you honestly this is the first time I am writing about the school’s hotel. For a person who has been with the school for more than a decade, I still got shocked and amazed at the many features and rooms available at Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle.
Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle is a fully functional hotel under the DLS-College of Saint Benilde who is a pioneer school in hospitality management. Situated at the heart of Manila, the hotel offers a nice ambiance, convenient location, and accessible to most places in Manila. I have stayed with the hotel for a couple of times already as most of our workshops, conferences, and seminars that are school-related are done there. I’d say our stay is always a comfortable and amazing stay without being biased to it. Little did I know that the hotel actually has even more to offer than what I have experienced.
I had the chance to tour the other hidden gems in the Hotel Benilde Maison De La Salle with my other mommy blogger friends. It was a nice experience looking at the same hotel with a different perspective during that time as I came there as a blogger. I thought I already saw the fullness of the hotel but there was so much more like the amazing Presidential Suite, and PWD-friendly rooms. I specifically loved the Presidential suite because it is a good choice for marrying couples, honeymoon or just a family staycation. I also loved the dormitory rooms because it is perfect for people on a budget and also backpackers who loves to travel. The hotel truly offers an elegant and sleek interior making it perfect for everyone whether seeking for rest and relaxation or out on a business trip.
The tour felt like I was in one of MTV’s Cribs show where we were sent into different rooms in the hotel. By the way, we were given a dormitory room where our make-up workshop was conducted. The dormitory had 8 bunk beds with a center table and side tables with 8 or 10 chairs. It’s also complete with lamp and outlets perfect for working or studying. Plus the view was also to die for, you know, for times you need to just relax and look outside the window?
The hotel offers a lot of services and amenities and they make sure that every guests stay is convenient and extraordinary for everyone. One of the many things I love about Hotel Benilde is that the contents of the fridge is FREE!!! Yes, it’s true, and you can take my word for it. Been there many times already and we take home about four soda and some kitkat bars. Hihi! So keep that in mind when you stay with them , okay?:) But aside from that they also have high-speed wifi, LAN internet service, room service, baggage storage, complete meeting services, 24-hour business center, complimentary newspaper, and laundry service. All rooms have these as their minimum amenities but there are a lot more in the other rooms.
The accommodation of Hotel Benilde is truly of excellence. The rooms are always kept clean, bedsheet and pillows fluffy and unscented, towels are neat and dry and I so love their carpeted floors. Did I mention also that they have warm lighting which exudes a cozy and elegant feel to the rooms. All the rooms include these facilities: Free Wi-Fi Internet access
- 40-inch LED Smart TV
- Private toilet and bath
- Coffee and tea maker
- Hair dryer
- Complimentary local newspaper
Superior Twin (Php5,500/ Php3,850)
Deluxe Queen – Php5,500/ Php3,850)
One Bedroom Suite – Php9,000/Php6,300
Presidential Suite – Php15,000
The rooms were all amazing, and it really shows how the hotel and its staff takes good care of the rooms and amenities to make sure guests gets their well-deserved accommodation.
Other services in the hotel are:
Vatel Restaurant Manila
Hotel Benilde really offers a wide variety of excellence and convenience from the rooms, facilities and even the food. It is also very accessible to many areas in Manila and Makati. Outside the hotel are also restaurants worth trying like Becky’s Kitchen, Faburrito, TexMex, and a Gourmet food park just a stone’s throw away from the hotel. There are also two convenient stores nearby which are 711 and K-MArt. I also suggest you try Rica’s Bacsilog and Chicken Chicken which is really a hit with students in the area. But just in case, you just want to stay inside the hotel Cafe Romancon and Vatel Restaurant Manila is your best choice. I’d share our Cafe Romancon experience with you soon cause it deserve a separate blogpost. hihi!
