The bustling view from my room




My younger brother, Ronald, works for a company in Eastwood, Libis, Quezon City and it's also the location where I first walked my pet Japanese Spitz, Lancaster, when he was just less than a year old. With the summer season on, I figured to kick-start my treat to my family with a metro immersion in the same dynamic district to keep up with sib and reminisce the dog walk. As we would be shuttling ourselves to various sites such as the Eastwood Mall and a few restaurants in Teacher's Village's Maginhawa Street, I opted to book ourselves at the reliable Microtel By Wyndham-Acropolis.

Accessibility To Eastwood City

Nestled just across the perpendicular junction of E. Rodriguez Jr. Avenue and the entrance to Eastwood City, Microtel By Wyndham-Acropolis is quite accessible for overnight stays by travelers in transit to the Ninoy Aquino International Airport from neighboring cities, professionals on business in the area or families on so-called staycation mode like mine.

The Microtel Standard

I did not worry about hotel security issues, amenities, and room details because Microtel By Wyndham hotels are almost the same everywhere I go. The reliable distinction is impeccable. Minor details from wooden closet hangers to the dependable shower mat flat keep me satisfied. There are no horrifying surprises when it comes to the quality of the bedding and the bed itself. As always expected, they compliment my restful sleep as was the case in the hotel's Baguio City and Cabanatuan City branches during my previous stays.

Of Buffet Breakfast and Booking

The Acropolis establishment offers complimentary breakfast buffet as part of the accommodation rate to make up for not having unlimited access to coffee. I did not mind this service adjustment when I learned about it as there are several coffee shops that are right outside the hotel to perk up my caffeine cravings.

My parents loved how some of the fruits in season were available at the buffet display of the hotel's affiliate restaurant, Tito Chef, while I appreciated the inclusion of my favorite viand, the pininyahang manok (pineapple chicken) when the kitchen could have just served a simple fried chicken. I would have loved to order a papaya shake but it was not available, so I better just make it a practice to arrange something like that with reservations during confirmation of booking in my future stays.

Don't be fooled by the hotel's seemingly flat facade as there are 84 guest rooms inside so booking won't be a hassle even on holidays in the metro.

  1. I wanna try this branch of Microtel... :)

    1. It's a good place for a QC immersion.

  2. the mobile number is not active. do you know if they have per hour rate?

    1. It has recently changed its manager, so just settle with using the office number instead. As for hourly rate, Microtel only operates per room rate. For hourly hotel rates in QC, you may want to try Cacao Hotel (along Quezon Ave.) which offers a minimum of 10-hr stay rate.
