The conference that we participated in was held in Mensvic Grand Hotel. So, to avoid hassle on transport back and forth, we lodge our accommodation there. My standard room is clean and spacious, if I’m only in the Philippines, the room can house 3-4 Pinoys. Hehehe! I have a veranda but the overlooking view is not magnificent. All I can see is a building being constructed and a few trees and roads. The other side of the hotel, however, is overlooking the pool, restaurant, and main road.
I find the bed hard to sleep on. Though I’m tried every day, I’m up at 6am and retire around 10pm, I find it difficult to sleep because the bed is not comfortable. I’m not choosy about hotels and stuff, but after a day’s work one wants to sleep well for next day’s work. I only have 3 criteria when I’m choosing a hotel – first is security, second is location and lastly cleanliness. Now, I should add fourth criteria about beds, pillows, and such! Hahaha!
Another thing, my local colleague warned me not to leave laptop, cell phone, camera in the conference room when we are on break or lunch. One of the participants lost his cell phone when we took an afternoon break. So much for security!
