Casa Vallejo is where we stayed at over the weekend mainly because it is owned by a good friend GB and friends should support each other not just in CHIZMIZ but also in business.
My dad remembers this hotel too from WAAAY BACK....He said, WHAT? We will stay there???
I told him that it is newly renovated and under new management. Then he relaxed.
When we got there, we were relieved to find new beds, clean bathrooms and super friendly staff! Rates were very reasonable.
There's also a restaurant in the same building but not owned by the Bagatsing's. The place was beautiful. Quaint, dramatic staircase, nice big French windows and wooden floors. But, yes there is a but, we were not very happy with the food. Was expecting something a bit better with the price.
Was a bit scared of a *REDRUM moment but all was good and safe. I liked our hotel.
