Tourism is booming in Albay’s capital city of Legazpi so much so that most hotels and resorts are always booked all-year round. And, why not? Almost every hotel room view in the province has the magnetic silhouette of the majestic Mayon Volcano for a bonus treat. The touristic experience is not complete without having a glimpse of it in the morning or at sunset. Thankfully for my Triple “A” Travel (Absolute Albay In April Tour), I was able to experience one of the most modern accommodations in the old district of the city via The ApplePeach House.
The ApplePeach House is a modern boutique hotel that offers modern comfort for local and foreign tourists. My booked Peach Business Room initially overwhelmed me with its sleek features when I checked in. It was there where I actually spent my last night of my 5-day backpacking Albay tour. The culmination couldn’t be more rewarding because I think I deserved something comfortable to stay in and the hotel provided just that.

The 16-room hotel looked pristine white from its façade to its high-ceiling lobby where an artsy wall setup welcomed me upon check-in. The openness of the modern space extended all the way to my booked room where a couple of twin beds awaited me and my scheduled contributing photographer. The room felt easy to relax in as the walls were painted pristine white and was accentuated with subdued lighting. It has a big flat screen cable TV that was viewable from both beds. Unfortunately, I was travelling alone that time and had to contend with using just one bed, so the whole room was all mine.
I actually adored the spacious bathroom where I spent endless of hours during my stay for hot showers. The rainwater shower was bliss.

walking distance from the city’s commercial and business center. The nearest
Jollibee and Biggs branches are just a 5-minute stroll from the hotel. Legazpi City
My chosen complimentary breakfast was a hearty meal of corned beef and coffee and I had it at the hotel’s F&B facility that’s next to the lobby where I also spent much of my internet time.
Guests can choose from the boutique hotel’s set of rooms that include the Fernandina Veranda Suites, the Apple Executive Rooms, Chico’s Rooms aside from the room type where I was booked in.

Perhaps, one of the conveniences of being booked at The ApplePeach House is having free access to its airport shuttle. All I had to do upon check-in was notify the reception area of my flight out the next day at the Legazpi City Airport and a shuttle had me conveniently transferred 30 minutes before boarding time.
Truly, The ApplePeach House is an easy choice for a modern and comfortable stay in Legazpi City for tourists when visiting the province of Albay.
