Hotel Lorenza

Hotel lobby
On November 22, 2013, just 14 days after Typhoon Yolanda (international name: Haiyan) devastated Tacloban City and the rest of the Eastern Visayas Region, Hotel Lorenza opened its doors to the 30 relief workers from Samaritan's Purse, an internationally known evangelical Christian, non-profit organization.  
Only 31 rooms were then ready for occupancy and only 12 of these were fully furnished.
Front Desk

This 4-storey boutique hotel now has 50 tastefully appointed airconditioned rooms (some non smoking) with private ensuite bathroom (with hot and cold shower), flat screen cable TV, seating area, hair dryer, coffee and tea making facility, blackout curtains and wireless internet access.  
Rates are a bit pricey - Standard Single (PhP1,700), Standard Double (PhP2,400), Superior De Luxe (PhP2,650), Premium De Luxe (PhP2,800), Superior Double De Luxe (PhP3,000), Junior Suite (PhP3,500), Executive Suite  (PhP4,000). Extra bed: PhP450. They serve breakfast but it is not free.  The hotel staff was very friendly.
Executive Suite

The hotel also has a coffee shop (Lilybelle’s CafĂ©, named after Chairman of the Board and matriarch - Lily A. Montejo) and a conference room (Anastacio’s Hall).  

The Montejo family also owns and operates Hotel Alejandro. Hotel Lorenza is very conveniently located in front of Divine Word Hospital and just near the downtown district.  Al fresco barbecue and "kakanins" are sold in a small hut outside. It is also very near major establishments such as malls, spa, restaurants, drugstores, coffee shops, internet cafe and banks. Jeepneys and tricycles are just around the corner.
