LAKBAYAN: Gran Prix Hotel Manila

As a thrifty yet practical traveler like me, I'm not usually a fan of hotels when travelling because I get weary with the location, the amenities and even the price. These factors hold me back and makes travelling stressful rather than relaxing. Well I'm glad that there is an "econotel" like Gran Prix Hotels and Resorts. They are actually exists in high traffic places like bus stops and main roads which is a great advantage above other hotels.

Grand Prix Hotels are located in key areas like in Ermita, Pasay, Cubao, and have provincial branches in Tarlac, Boracay and Cebu. Soon they will also have a branch in Palawan. We took a look at one its (biggest) branch in Ermita which is just a few steps away from Robinson's Place Manila and also nearby shops, money changers and restaurants. It is within the building where Tesoro's shop is located. 

The building is optimized in having spacious rooms with amenities like bathroom, cable TV, beds and tables. Though having a minimalist approach, it's also a practical stay as most travelers would just love for a great night's sleep (like me). They also have their own restaurant called NAMAYAN which name is based on one of the former kingdoms of Manila. They serve Filipino cuisine and also have a stage for performers on scheduled dates. By the way, I have to say kudos to Chef Kaiser of Bread Depot and the Gran Prix Manila staff for accommodating and providing a great feast for us on the Bloggers' Night as it was my first time there and also left a great first impression. Just to give you a sample, here are the dishes we had on that night.

Many of their customers are usually foreigners and visa applicants as the US embassy is also minutes via walking. There are also students and conference attendees from the provinces which like to save on their lodging in Manila. So it is indeed the best of both worlds, having the convenience of being near landmarks, offices and stores, and getting a lot of savings with the facilities similar to more costly hotels around.
