The demand for a nice hotel when coming to Dumaguete is getting bigger almost each month here. During high season it’s hard to find something up to date and most places are fully booked. Since a couple of weeks is a new Hotel quite central in Dumageute City.
Obdulias Business Inn is located next to BDO-bank and the Cathedral. It has a modern design and rooms starting around 700 peso. The rooms are spacious and well designed and with the elevator also accessible for elder guests without any problems. A restaurant in the same building offers international dishes including Thai and Indian cuisine.
Another edition to the Dumaguete Hotel scene is soon to open. Hotel Nicanor will open for guests in a few weeks and is about 2 minutes walking distance to Lee Plaza and the Boulevard. With 44 rooms Hotel Nicanor is one of the biggest Hotels in Dumaguete and can accommodate more than 100 guests. Hotel Nicanor is related somehow to the same Family which runs Hotel Palwa and that puts quite some weights on the shoulders of Katrina, the manager of Nicanor. Why?
Hotel Palwa is top of my “favorite-hotel-list” in Dumaguete because of the friendly staff and the lovely Frontdeskangels. Some of Nicanor’s future FD-staff is at the moment in training there and I must admit the staff-recruiter has a good taste… hehe
My Friend Kim has always a pleasant stay at Palwa and it will be hard to convince him to try something else… But as he puts me in charge for his booking he also might have no chance. The only problem would be if he is not happy he will drown me in SMB.
I am pretty sure the future will bring some more Hotels to Dumaguete, I’ll keep you informed … and there is always www.dumagueteinfo.com
