QUEZON CITY: HIVE HOTEL AND CONVENTION CENTER

QUEZON CITY: HIVE HOTEL AND CONVENTION CENTER

The heavy downpour was an unnecessary backdrop one weekend.  For work commitments, I arrived late and in time for dinner.  My friends were positioned on their respective beds lounging and watching television.  It was a weekend forecasted for the lazy selves we have.

The Hive Hotel and Convention Center will be our lair.  Though situated a block away from the entertainment strips of Quezon City – Timog and Tomas Morato Avenue and despite the fact that I frequent these streets when time is available, I have never heard of this eco-friendly hotel.

The hotel is relatively new and indeed presents a unique interior concept with an advocacy for its existence.  It presents itself as a green hotel.


I was warmly greeted and welcomed by the courteous receptionists of the hotel as I enter the premises.  The reception area is vibrant complete with colorful loungers and sofa, books neatly arranged complementing the interiors and a business center on one corner.

The orange and gray colors is said to represent the vibrant but calming atmosphere that the hotel wants to maintain - a combination of colorful retro and era and the simplicity of modern elegance.  The said colors are prominent even on the common areas of each floor and the rooms itself.

ROOMS

The group was assigned to two rooms.  First is the party room situated at the 6th floor at the Sky Garden.  And the second one is a deluxe room with a modern retro feel and a city view.

The party room is indeed spacious and good for family and friends.  As an eco-friendly hotel, all trash bins are segregated for biodegradable and non-biodegradable.

I had a deep and quality slumber while at the hotel.  The top of the line beds has pocket springs and memory foam with a 400-thread count, 100% Egyptian cotton bedlinen, 90% goose down duvets and circle-of-down pillows.

For the deluxe room, there is a full single size bed as sofa bed and standard bed pull-out that lifts up to the same bed level.

The bath experience is likewise refreshing.  The ensuite bathroom has a rain shower with hot and cold water, 100% Egyptian cotton towel sets, 100% cotton Yutaka bathrobes, 100% organic, eco-certified bathroom amenities.
