Traffic in Manila could be an excruciating experience. It would really be a treat to get out of it as soon as possible. It was a good thing while I was in the Manila area of the metro, I stumbled upon Oriental Zen suites. It is a new hotel along A. Mendoza in Sampaloc area.
Here’s the scenario:
Driving back would take 3 hours and I’m still far from my home. That means, I would be trolling to get home. I decided I’d rather get things done in a convenient space than troll in this traffic.
I entered the newly established hotel and was pleased with the interior and clean atmosphere. The concierge was helpful and patient. She asked me for a booking reference and gladly assisted on booking the hotel. Then she escorted me to my room. I did not have too many things yet she politely asked me if she could help.
When I entered the room, I thought it was quite spacious. I chose the premiere room and thought it was worth it. More space means more room for thinking. I had a desk where I could put my mac to work on my backlogs. There was a water heater for my coffee in case I decide it to be a late night work. A small sized refrigerator was enough to keep my water and Gatorade cold. The kitchenette has a sink and worthy cabinets to keep my snacks. There was also a cabinet with drawers for my small luggage that night.
I put the TV on for news and for it to wake me up. Very effective.
In the morning I checked out the place and saw a hub. This hub is for students to chill and hang, sometimes socialise. The lower floors are composed of dorms to cover for the university nearby. This seems to be a sound business move for the hotel.
