Looking for a standard class hotel along Rizal Boulevard in Dumaguete City? Want a venue for your next seminar or social event and plan on having a tour of Negros Oriental right after? Then look no further and read on. The King of Sinulog is off to Bethel Guest House for an overnight stay in partnership with Dumaguete City Tourism Office. Here are five more reasons why you should consider staying at the best value for money convention hotel in Dumaguete.
The hotel is located in Rizal Boulevard which makes it accessible to the city center and nearby points of interest and a favorite venue for big events
Bethel Guest House is a fifteen-minute drive from the airport and three minutes away from the seaport. Located at the heart of the city, the hotel is within walking distance from restaurants such as Sans Rival Bistro and Paseo Perdices, Silliman University, St. Catherine Church and the Belfry Tower, Quezon Park and many other entertainment centers. The hotel also offers a refreshing and relaxing view of the city’s scenic seascape, a good view of the famous Cuernos de Negros (Negros’ twin peaks), Mt. Talinis and the neighboring provinces of Negros Oriental. This makes it a good venue for events and seminars given that they have four function rooms with a cabinet capacity of more than 1,000 persons and with state of the art facilities. No wonder their tagline is, “Your Convention Hotel in Dumaguete.”
The hotel is family-friendly as it is smoke and liquor free with value for money accommodation
It offers 50+ available guest rooms with varying room types such as the Studio Single Room at PHP950 Twin Deluxe at PHP1,500, Double Deluxe at PHP 2,200, Family Room at PHP 2,000, Family Deluxe at PHP2,200 and Suite Accommodation at PhP 4,500. I got to stay at the double deluxe room 417 and you can’t help but admire the space. Though the hotel is more than 25 years old, you’ll appreciate the effort they have done to maintain the place. The room was immaculately clean and everything was functioning properly. What really caught my attention is that they have a clearing form for room inventory placed on top of the bed with a subtle message that says, “Should you wish to bring home any of these non-consumable items as souvenirs, kindly inform the housekeeping station so that we can bill you accordingly.” Typical Pinoy behavior! Laughs.
The hotel has a business center ready to meet every traveler’s need
Aside from a 24-hour front desk, the business center has services such as an in-house travel agency for tours around Negros Island, an ATM cash machine on site, souvenir shop, luggage storage and a very convenient cellphone autoload kiosk which I got to use.
The hotel has an indoor and outdoor lounge on the fifth floor that offers breathtaking views
This is my favorite part of the hotel because of the fresh sea breeze and because it is overlooking Rizal Boulevard where you can see Dumagueteños in their day to day living starting from the early break of dawn while waiting for the magnificent sunrise above the horizon up to the late afternoon until the flickering of the night lights along the boardwalk. In here you can read the newspaper or work on your laptop on your downtime because the WIFI signal is strong and stable. You also have access to free hot and cold drinking water. The only problem is that there is no comfort room available, so everytime
Café Filomena serves Filipino and International Cuisine at very affordable prices
The restaurant offers eat-all-you-can buffets every Friday to Sunday priced at PHP200 for the adults and PHP125 for children. An example of their buffet spread would consist of the following: seashell soup, grilled fish, pork adobo, ginataang gulay, bam-i, fruit mix and assorted pastries. This is relatively very generous on their part, quite affordable and quite convenient for in-house guests as well as there won’t be any need for them to go out and look for the nearest restaurant. Be informed though that they have a strict no sharing, no left over and no take home policy relating to the buffet. If you prefer ala carte dishes, a typical meal for two would cost about PHP400. They also cater to kiddie parties and events.
