Gilarmi Hotel

View of the other rooms at Gilarmi

My Tita Luday and her daughters stayed at Gilarmi because it was the only one I could find that would meet their requirements:
1) Affordable --P2200 per night for 3 people (includes buffet breakfast)
2) Near the malls (no need to take a jeep or taxi)
3) a kitchenette (in case they feel like cooking)
4) Swimming pool (Jasmine's request)

Other places like La Perla, BSA Mansion and City Garden were considered but price and location considerations prevailed. Also there were good reviews on

The bedroom

Well, here's the lowdown on Gilarmi. If you want a place that's affordable and spacious, this is for you.The 3 person room has a receiving area/living room, a bed area, a narrow kitchenette complete with ref and cooking utensils. There's a narrow space for storing your luggage, a small but clean toilet and a verandah facing the Glorietta mall. However,the place is rather old. It is evident in the furniture and especially the tv. Most everything needs a new paint job. There's a musty smell to the sofa and the aircon can get noisy. But the staff are pleasant and accommodating. My aunt later moved to a 1-bedroom when my cousins flew back to Canada. This room looked better maintained but the bed looked rather short.
