urban refuge at half the usual price


There are days and times when you need to get a place that has all the essential elements of being like home but will not be costly on a daily basis. I then humbly present  to you my family’s little refuge that has been leased out by foreign guests at times for months.

Our place is a little bigger than the usual hotel unit, and has its own kitchen area where the microwave oven can be put into good use. There is also a set of tableware which you can utilize on the marble tabletop that can seat four people. And or course the area has the usual split type airconditioning, refrigerator, cable television, and heated shower.

The place is not in the most fashionable area (and not even in a fantastic building). Our place is near the corner of Roces Avenue and Quezon Boulevard. But it has access to many points as my unit is just 20 steps away from the main artery (Quezon Boulevard) of Quezon City. One can go to Trinoma and SM North, Quiapo, Cubao and MRT Station using public transportation. You may want to enjoy the night life near the area such as in Timog and Morato Avenues. Laugh your blues away at the comedy bars along Quezon Boulevard and Timog Avenue or go gaga over Pinoy stars at the nearby ABSCBN.

There is a variety of food that you can have downstairs. One can have the usual fast food stuff with Jollibee, Dunkin Donuts and Chowking nearby. But you can also have carinderia fare such as karekare, menudo, adobo or kaldereta at extremely low prices such that there is no need to cook food at all. There are 24/7 groceries even like 7-Eleven and the newly opened Ever Store just steps away. Of course, there is a laundry shop, like Metropole beside the building.

All of these and more at less than half the cost of the usual hotel price. For inquiries such as price and how to go there, please call or text me at 0917-8339894 or at 4180776.

    I’m looking for an apartelle to rent for about 3 months (from April to June 2009) in the Quezon City area. I a need a one-room apartel with complete cooking and dining facilities. Your description only says microwave oven; does it have a stove or cooking range, too?

    Is there any possibility I could have internet connection in the room? Will you charge extra for it? How much, if so?

    Or alternatively, is there an internet cafe nearby? How far from the hotel?

    Can I request for pics of the room?

    What’s the room rate per month?
