RED PLANET HOTEL TIMOG QUEZON CITY: AN EXTENSION OF HOME

RED PLANET HOTEL TIMOG QUEZON CITY: AN EXTENSION OF HOME

One weekend caught me by surprise.  A few blocks from where I live, a walking distance as a matter of fact, my mom who will be in the metro for less than 24 hours, sister and I decided to stay in a boutique hotel.

We searched online and finally decided to book at Red Planet Timog.  It was an impromptu booking originally intended for an overnight stay but my sister and I extended for 3 more days and 2 nights.

It was a weekend of comfort and destressing.

ROOMS AND AMENITIES

Formerly Tune Hotels, expect a no-frills accommodation yet exuding comfort and convenience.  For our booked room, there are two beds available with one bed offering an attached improvised table, which was actually used by my sister as study table in view of the upcoming school examinations she has.

There are 140 rooms available at the said hotel which comes with a complimentary wifi (a necessity nowadays).  There’s a double room and a twin room, and we were settled at the latter. (click to check room rates)

The room has a safety deposit box and a hair dryer that hangs near the bathroom and a huge vanity mirror.  The toilet (with bidet) and the shower room is separated by a glass wall and complimentary toiletries are likewise provided.

For others, the room may appear a cramped space but really with all the basic amenities and the comfort it gives with an LCD TV, who would need a huge space for a room.  For a day, I just stayed in bed watching TV and updating social media accounts, not until my stomach complained.

However, there is no telephone in the room that will connect you to the reception area or housekeeping in case there are concerns that needs to be addressed.

Since I have already stayed at Red Planet Amorsolo Makati, I can’t help but compare the rooms’ interior design and lay-out.  Indeed, both are identical.  The brand leaves a mark of how a Red Planet Hotel experience should be.

LOCATION

When in Quezon City, I must say Red Planet Hotel has one of the perfect locations.  It is near the government offices, major television networks, restaurants, shopping malls, bars and cafés.

Situated at the heart of the entertainment district of Quezon City, when one gets bored lounging at the hotel, there are a lot of choices to engage with.

A convenience store is likewise available at the ground floor of the hotel next to the reception area.

SERVICE

The friendly staff assigned at the 24-hour front desk is a great help for directions and inquiry on the where-to of travelers and sojourners.

Since there are limited encounters with the staff of the hotel, as there is no means to call them for other concerns, although they do check every morning if the room needs housekeeping, the interaction at the lobby for checking-in and out is a pleasant one.  All were done swiftly and in an amiable manner.

One security feature of the hotel which makes it remarkable and at par with luxury hotels is the key card access which gives you access exclusive only to the floor where you are checked-in.
