Summit Hotel Magnolia ~ Hotel Review

 
Why travel far (with traffic and all) if you can have the bonding you want near the Metro?
 
Check out our most recent staycation hotel find in Quezon City ~ Summit Hotel Magnolia.
 
This hotel is perfect for shop-a-holic mommas as it has direct access to Robinson's Magnolia mall. So cool!
The hotel lobby is small with very few sitting, but quite chic with bits and pieces of modern elements.

A room at the Summit Hotel is really affordable. A Super Twin room cost a little over P2500 plus VAT.  We got ours at a much lower price in a travel expo.
 
All rooms come with:
· 42-inch, flat-screen TV with HDMI, USB ports and Premium Cable Channels
· Executive Work Desk
· Individually Controlled Air Conditioning Unit
· High-quality Bed Linens and Duvet Covers
· Ultra-soft, non-allergenic Pillows
· Coffee/Tea Making Facility
· Mini-bar Chiller
· Private Bathroom with Hot and Cold Storm Shower
· Hairdryer
· Vanity Mirror
· In-room safe
· RFID Proximity Card and Lock System
 
 
Our room is smaller than we have expected, but given the price we paid for, we are not really complaining.
 
 
The beds were soft and comfortable, however, I think they are a bit small to fit my family of 4 comfortably (sleeping arrangement for 4 person needs a bit of imagination). 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 Our package came with set breakfast for 2 in café located right next to the hotel ~ Club House
 
 

VERDICT:
  • Location is right next to Robinsons Magnolia ~ perfect for those who wants to do some major shopping. 
  • Rates are really affordable.
  • Summit Hotel is a no-frills hotel, but offers all of the basic amenities to make your stay comfortable. They have wifi but comes with additional charges.  Though you can get free wifi at the mall next door. 
  • Breakfast is free for 2 pax, but additional meals cost a fortune.  We paid about P500 for a simple breakfast meal for my son.  Food was nothing spectacular.
  • Service is very good. Check in was fast and efficient. The staff at the reception and the bell door man are friendly and accommodating.
  • We were a bit sad since there is no pool.  A pool would have been great, especially during summer.

  1. In fairness, if it's about 2,500 per room, then that's affordable considering the location. Will check that out for our next staycation!

  2. Summit Hotel looks really nice and clean. Plus factor is it's near to the mall so one can just buy food or eat there. Trust you had a wonderful time with your family. Thank you for sharing. :)

  3. The beds do look small for a family of 5 such as ours. Ang mahal ng breakfast for kiddos ha! But it sounds interesting. I've not heard of this hotel before but I've not been to QC in a long time. :) Mura naman ang room, we won't be complaining either. :)

  4. Having a pool would have been great. That's actually one of the things we check out for when we're looking for a hotel for an overnight staycation. The price of the hotel room is quite affordable, though, when you consider the location and the quality of service. -- Maria Teresa Figuerres

  5. Uy, it looks clean and not so expensive. I would love to try this out. But yeah, I agree, pool is also a plus for me.

  6. I think this is a nice place to stay for travellers. If it's a staycation for me, then there 2 things I need: a pool and a bath tub! HeHe.

  8. Oh, this is open already? I remember seeing signages of this back when we used to go to Rob Magnolia. It does sound affordable although a bit small.

  9. Not bad for a twin bedroom with free breakfast. The kids though would always look for a swimming pool.

  10. Oh, what an affordable price for such a nice room! No pool wouldn't have been a deal-breaker for me. I prefer lounging inside the room haha

  11. This makes me want to go on a staycation too! Too bad they didn't have a pool.

  12. Oh sayang walang pool. That is one of the things we consider when booking for a hotel staycation.

  13. We love staycations too though no pool would be a deal breaker for me too since the kids enjoy that the most. I also share your sentiment about how kids up to a certain age (like 10 haha) are not allowed to have free breakfast considering how little/picky they eat.

  14. That's very affordable! I've always wondered what the rooms looked like there.

  15. I was curious about this hotel since we live nearby. Sayang lang they don't have a swimming pool. But for transients, super affordable na the rate and its proximity to a mall. Robinson's Magnolia is a nice and quiet mall. :)

  16. That looks an awesome place. I'm pretty sure me and my family are going to love it. Try visiting Holiday Inn Makati, you'll love it too. Anyway, Thanks for sharing!

Day 4 in Seoul (A Private Tour : Seoul ~ Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island)

Our Day 4 in South Korea was in the outskirt of Seoul ~ Pocheon, Gyeonggi-do.  As it was a little difficult to reach I contacted, "This is Korea" Tours to customize a private tour for my family.

Andy, our Tour Specialist (TS) cum driver and photographer picked us up at the Metro Hotel at 11am as agreed.  It was an easy ride on board a 7-seater limousine van for our family of 4. 

Our tour was personalized based on what we wanted so long as the entire trip is all within the 10 hours we've commissioned.  For our trip, we've decided on Sanjeong Lake, Pocheon Art Valley and Herb Island.



SANJEONG LAKE

Sanjeong Lake is situated between Myeongseongsan and Mangbongsan Mountain.  Its name means "as clear as a mountain well". It was built in 1925 as a reservoir to supply to farmlands in Pocheon.


Reached Sanjeong Lake Park early afternoon ~ perfect weather for a cup of hot coffee 

Lots of things to do in the lake park.  We took a paddle boat and walked the lake promenade.

Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel Kingdom Club

We wanted a special holiday with the kids (they are growing up so fast) and decided to welcome 2018 in Hong Kong Disneyland.  It has after all been 5 years since we have last been to Hong Kong.  Though we were recently in Tokyo Disneyland, the volume of guests was heartbreakingly huge ~ to truly enjoy the park.

Check here our Visit to Tokyo Disneyland and Tokyo Disney Sea last 2016 >>> Tokyo Disneyland  and >>> Tokyo Disney Sea

We booked a 3 nights stay at the Hong Kong Disneyland Hotel and opted for an upgrade to the Kingdom Club floor.

The elegant service and perks is well worth the additional cost.



Club Level BenefitsComplimentary Deli at Kingdom Club Lounge (730am to 10pm) which includes assorted fresh pastries, cereal, fruit, hot breakfast selections and beverages in the morning; Selection of scrumptious appetizers with your choice of complimentary beer and wine late afternoon and light snacks night time.

Day 2 in Seoul - Part I (War Memorial of Korea, Grevin Wax Museum and the funny Nanta Show)

"Joh-eun achim (Good Morning) Seoul"
Our Day 2 in Seoul is a DIY using Seoul's public transportation. 
After a hearty complimentary breakfast at Metro Hotel, we made our way to Myeongdong Station and headed to the first item in our itinerary.

The War Memorial of Korea
The museum is easily accessible via Subway Line 4 through Samgakji Station, Exit 12.


If you have limited time to tour Seoul and want to see at least one of the city's museums, I highly recommend visiting the War Memorial.  We also visited the National Museum of Korea and liked the War Memorial better.
We spent hours touring the Outdoor Exhibition Area alone. The warships and aircrafts exhibition is truly remarkable. This particular ship is a replica of the Korean Naval Vessel PKM 357, which was involved in bloody naval battle between North and South Korea in 2002.
