where to stay in cagayan de oro

Full but still tired from all the commute, I couldn't wait to get to our hotel. On our way back from High Ridge, we made a pitstop at a roadside fruit vendor (which was already closed, but we begged to be let in) to get some durian. I wasn't too enthused about it to be honest, but I still enjoyed the communal durian-feasting. We drank Coke after – to burp the icky smell of durian away – and since I was still hungry, I bought some bread from the bakery across the street.

In any case, after our evening dessert, we finally made our way to our hotel.

THE PLACE
Located at the heart of Cagayan De Oro, Mallbery Suites Business Hotel has a strategic location that allows access to key establishments. It's literally just a few steps away from Robinsons. There are a number of hangout spots all around.

THE ROOM
I had an Executive Deluxe Room which I shared with Claire. It had a king bed, and a single bed. Claire let me have the king bed since she had commandeered the desk. The room also had a cable TV, a shower, and a dresser.

It had a large window covered with heavy drapes, but there wasn't much of a view. It only looked into the streets. The room was also large enough for me to do my workout. The only downside is that WiFi gets iffy once here – I had to stand by the door to get good reception.


THE AMENITIES
Mallbery Suites has conference rooms, a pool, and a gym. It also has an in-house restaurant and a cafe. It has WiFi but the connection's erratic inside our room. It's reliable on the lobby though.

THE SERVICE
My main issue with Mallberry is the loooong waiting time during check-in. It took us a while to get to our rooms even though we had reservations. They had computers, but by the way the lines forms at the front desk, they proved to be not much help.


BOTTOMLINE
Aside from the ridiculously long time to check-in, and the funky room WiFi connection, I like Mallberty. The rooms are nice. I loved that there's a cafe and a gym. And, because of its location, it's the perfect homebase when you have some business (or leisure) in the city.
