3 Reasons To Choose Alba Uno Hotel Cebu In IT Park Lahug

You’re a marketing student at one of the colleges in Cebu and for your finals project, you are to group yourselves to five and creatively promote a brand in any way you can and since the available time for this task is just this weekend with the deadline coming up on Monday, other groups just went with the easy route and chose the latest smart phone and made a paper showcasing its selling points, and you tell your group, “That’s boring and can be easily searched on Google, let’s make things interesting, shall we?”

You assessed the situation, started brainstorming and checked out your friends’ individual skills. You found out that four members of your team were creatively inclined in different fields: an amateur photographer, a foodie on Instagram, a freelance model and a blogger for SLAY Pilipinas. Don’t act surprised, you always have that one useless group mate, you.

Until that eureka moment comes where you, the weakest link, after countless hours of checking your newsfeed to relieve boredom, stumbled upon an article written by your blogger friend featuring Tom n Tom’s Coffee owned by the same proprietors of Alba Uno Hotel which really sparked your interest. You huddle your team and instantly promoted yourself as project manager. Your midterm idea? To feature Alba Uno Hotel, a brand that is both a product and a service, while doing a fun shoot on the process and hopefully publish it on Out of Town Travel Blog entitled, “3 Reasons To Choose Alba Uno Hotel Cebu in IT Park Lahug”, as an output to submit to your marketing professor. And here’s what you’ve gathered so far:

1. Accommodation

After swiftly checking-in, we were guided to our room along the hallways decorated with colourful paintings and exquisite furniture. And since we were on the second floor, we could either use the stairs or the elevator in case of an emergency.

Family room

Room 210 was a family room with twin queen-sized beds good for the four of us since a member won’t be spending the night at the hotel because of strict parenting.

Anyway, the room was spacious, well-maintained and fully-equipped with modern amenities, free WIFI plus a hot and cold shower for the millennial traveller with a view of Cebu IT Park.

The beds were very smooth, comfortable and high quality, a perfectly relaxing place to do our finals project while watching the news of Donald Trump winning the US Elections, sorry Hillary.

What we didn’t expect was that the room was priced at only Php2300 a night which makes it Php575 for each of us if we were to pay separately which was already quite a value for our money.

2. Food

We were lazy to go out of the hotel, and to seriously promote it’s in-house cafe, we decided to try out their entire menu.

For breakfast, we were able to try out their heavenly pancakes in maple syrup and also their Filipino silog usually consisting of a viand like longganisa, egg and rice. The items we ordered were prepared fresh, fast and with ample servings. And oh, we ate in our pajamas.

Grilled offerings

For lunch, we went down to L Caffe, a 20-seater joint at the ground floor, perfect for a quick meal and a cup of coffee if you’re not in the mood to walk to the nearest 7-Eleven or McDonalds, and we were able to try out their grilled and sizzling options. Our favorites include their juicy beef burger steak, their healthy tuna belly and their teriyaki chicken which we just can’t get enough of.

For dinner, we tried their pastas, soups and sandwich options so that it won’t be heavy on our tummies before going to sleep. A definite must-try is their Spaghetti Pomodoro, Pork Sinigang and UNO Club House Sandwich. And don’t worry because there’s always room for dessert, which we decided to eat upstairs.

Clearly, you noticed that L Caffe’s menu was quite diverse with a good mix of American, Italian and Filipino cuisine and you may order any of them delivered straight to your room.

The budget for a meal is about Php200 per person which we believe was quite reasonable for a hotel meal. (Just a tip: if you plan on eating at L Caffe, order ahead of time by calling from your room. That way, you won’t be waiting downstairs along with other hungry guests especially on a full-packed weekend.)

3. Location

Nothing can beat Alba Uno in terms of accessibility since it is a few steps away from Cebu IT Park, one of the fastest growing business sectors in Cebu, which also means that the best dining, nightlife and lifestyle destinations are all here and are always open all days of the week, perfect for people who are here on business or leisure.

If you’re planning on shopping at SM City Cebu and Ayala Terraces or if you plan on visiting Sirao Flower Farm, Temple of Leah and Tops, Alba Uno is at the center of it all.

IT Park Lahug is also relatively safe compared to other parts of Cebu City that even Manny Pacquiao jogs in these parts in the morning when he’s training in Cebu for a fight.

And since we’re all locals and we’ve been to the above mentioned tourist attractions, why bother? Nothing beats a lazy day in a hotel, lying around and having a movie marathon on HBO while trying out the hotel’s snacks and smoothies.

By the way, their frappuccino were at par with those served at popular coffee shops and oh, don’t check-out until you have tried their mango crepe, trust us on this.

With a garden ambiance, Alba Uno is situated on a side street away from the traffic noise which meant, a good sound sleep for the tired traveller.

The twist?

You didn’t tell your fellow group mates that you were able to talk with the owners of Alba Uno Hotel and that you were able to convince them of the value this midterm project of yours would do to help boost the hotel’s online presence. Surprise group mates, the stay was actually sponsored by the hotel. I guess you weren’t so useless after all. Hooray for the weekend!
