    A quiet place in a great location”

    The check in was a little confusing because the manager wasn't there to accommodate us. We were initially confused why we were given a room with two single beds. This was no problem as Sans, the manager, knocked on our door to explain the situation with the double bed room. Anyway, we ended up liking this room instead because it was near the bathroom and toilet. The room didn't have a private bathroom fyi. The place has a guard, and it is close to a lot of restaurants we love in the Banilad area. We never got to try the breakfast since we sleep until noon time.

    The crew are warm and kind, the environment is wonderful. It's really safe to live here since there is a 24-hour safety guard. Our flight is in the morning so we need to leave the hotel during midnight. the safety guard helped us call a taxi and make sure we have a safe drive to the airport. Nodoka has a guesthouse price but a hotel quality.

    It’s a cool place. The staff are friendly and helpful and my room was comfortable. The breakfast was great; eggs, bacon, sausage, toast, salad, juice, coffee etc. The owner lives there and he helped me fix a. On-travel problem. It’s about 20 minutes by taxi from the airport and is not that obvious so look for a Bo’s Coffee and a Jollibees next to each other and it’s opposite. Neighborhood has nice Korean and Japanese restaurants, fast food, local cuisine - tons of options. My room was a bit noisy. The nearby main road is a bit of a racetrack and traffic can be noisy. I liked the place. And they have a friendly dog

    The longer we stayed, some disadvantages presented itself”

    We decided to stay here for another week. We found some disadvantages. 1. The WiFi signal didn't reach our room on the third floor. It was fine at first but it became inconvenient when we wanted to go online. We had to be downstairs at the kitchen or by the stairs. 2. The bathroom only gets cleaned by day time. There were days when it was really stinky. Because it is shared and other guests were inconsiderate, it was a pain to see and smell the bathroom after others' use especially during night time. 3. There are times when their staff were doing some work in the place near our room, and it was awfully noisy. Sometimes, they also shut the door of the patio loudly and roamed around noisily during the morning. It affected our sleep sometimes because we are late sleepers. I know these will be addressed in the future as they are still doing some work on the place.

    Served its purpose right”

    I just needed a place to stay overnight so arrived pretty late. Everyone was very nice and i was welcomed with a mango juice and they also gave me towels which i think is amazing when your backpacking. The room itself wasn't very special though. In fact it wasn't totally apart from the room next to it, so we could see their light and hear them at night. Bathroom was fine and clean. The breakfast was alright. All in all I had a pleasant stay. The price may be a little high though.

She was very helpful with anything I needed. -Aircon works great. -Internet was reliable -Bed was comfortable -Breakfast was included -On demand hot shower -Free water refill station -You can use the fridge and kitchen if you need Cons: -The massage parlour next door is not worth trying. The girl who offered me a massage didn't seem like she wanted to be there and she would go away at times to talk on the phone in the middle of the massage. It could have just been that masseuse but I was not happy with it. Also the massage table was kind of hard and uncomfortable. -Floor in bedroom old and dirty. -Water pressure was sometimes very weak. -Vanity lights above mirror in bathroom didn't work and when I asked them about it the staff looked at it but never fixed. Overall a pretty good place to stay whose staff is willing to help with any issues or questions you might have.

    I love the place. Pros: 1) It's an old house turned into a guesthouse, hence the homey feel. 2) Sandz is a smiling and welcoming receptionist. 3) Location is strategic to public transportation. 4) Treated us with a welcome juice; didn't expect this given the guesthouse is a bed and breakfast type. 5) Very spacious room and bathroom 6) With massage/spa within the compound Cons 1) If you like TV inside the room, there's none; only at the living room. 2) Jeepneys and other transport can be heard since our room was near the street.
