The 4-storey Buena Casa Hotel, our home for our 4-day stay at the Subic Freeport Zone, where we were covering the first Asia Pacific Drive Tourism Conference, Auto and Travel Show, has 54 rooms.
I stayed in one of its 10 airconditioned well-appointed and spacious twin (PPhP2,600) rooms with two queen-size beds, ensuite bath, 32" flat screen cable TV, mini ref, coffee-making facility, writing table, coffee table, card key locks and a small balcony (not available in other rooms).
The hotel is located near Pancake House, Meat Plus Cafe, Yellow Cab Pizza, Alava Pier, Subic Freeport Exchange, and the Spanish Gate, Subic's famous landmark
The hotel also has three standard (PhP1,289), six superior (PhP1,950), 17 de luxe (PhP2,100), six junior suites (PhP3,000) and 11 suites (PhP3,500).
The hotel lobby has a pretty seating area with Louis IV-style furniture and a grandfather clock.
It also has a 45-pax ground floor coffee shop (Sabroso Cafe) offering free wi-fi access, five 30-85-pax function rooms (Azalea 1 to 5, 350 pax total capacity), a small swimming pool and a secured parking area.
