Review: Exceptional stay at C Boutique Hotel Baguio

26 - 28 September 2016

I discovered C Boutique Hotel from the Deal Grocer site when they had a Getaway Deal (Cozy Baguio Stay for 3 in a Deluxe Suite with Breakfast) which I subsequently purchased.  All I can say is that I don't regret my purchase because our stay was exceptionally satisfying.  The location, the room, the breakfast and most importantly, the service, all contributed to an enjoyable stay.



We made good time on our way to Baguio so we arrived early at the hotel, around 12 noon.  We started the check-in process but we were told that the room wasn't ready yet.  It's fine, we sort of expected that anyway.  We decided to head out to have lunch first.  Around 1PM, I received a call from Swanie, the Front Office Associate, who said that the room was ready and we can head back to check-in.  I appreciated that phone call but we ended up checking in at 2PM because we were still at lunch by the time he called :)

The Deluxe Suite (originally P4,900/night was P3,490 from Deal Grocer) was as expected. 1 Double Bed and 1 Single Bed; Coffee/Tea Making Facility; a mini-ref with complimentary water; TV/Cable; a work desk; and a small veranda.  The bathroom had a rain shower, hot water (of course!) and an extendable clothes line.  It also had complete toiletries:  toothbrush/toothpaste, lotion, shampoo, soap, facial cotton and cotton buds.  It also had a hair dryer.  The room also had a closet with an in-room safe.




Because we were located at the far end of the Hallway (room #205), we also had an extra window that made the room cooler, although the large sliding doors leading to the veranda provided more than adequate ventilation.


Here's a look at the Interior of the Hotel.

These pictures were taken at the Lounge Area on the 2nd Floor.  If the WiFi signal was a little weak in the room, I spent my browsing time here.

Our package came with a Set Breakfast for 3, so Dylan already had cereal for breakfast in the room.  I had the Bonoan Boneless Bangus; Dana had the 3-pc Waffles with Blueberry; and, Patrick had the Baguio Longganisa.  Their brewed coffee was refillable! :) Oh and ours came with garlic rice, eggs and ensalada of cucumber, tomatoes and onions too :) Everything was fresh and cooked to perfection!  

Bonoan Bangus: Super Yummy!
3-pc Waffles with Blueberry: Heavy but worth it!
Baguio Longganisa: Fresh and Hearty!
For our breakfast on our 3rd day in Baguio, Dana ordered the Pancakes with Blueberry while Patrick and I had the same order (Bonoan Bangus and Baguio Longganisa) because we just enjoyed our breakfast the day before. We ordered extra Garlic Rice for Dylan and he shared my bangus.  He loved it too :)



On our last day, I asked to see the other rooms just in case we wanted to take a trip with a larger group.  They easily accommodated my request, so here are the pictures I took.

These are for the Executive Suite which can accommodate 4-5 people and costs P5,900/night.  It comes with two bathrooms:  an en suite bath in the bedroom and a powder room (toilet and sink) in the living room area.  There's a living room area with a couch that unfolds into a sofa bed.  There's also a kitchen complete with microwave, mini-ref, sink and coffee/tea making facility.

The half bath or Powder room: toilet and sink

 

Then there's the Family Suite that's good for 5-6 people, at P6,500/night.  The room is basically the same as a Deluxe Suite except that it has an added loft with a Double Bed.  It has one bath with shower, toilet and sink, a Double Bed, a Single Bed (on the lower floor), a TV, and desk.

I was very satisfied with our experience at the C Boutique Hotel Baguio.  Swanie (Front Desk), Laarni (Dining) and all other staff were courteous, always smiling, efficient and professional.  Whenever we meet any one of them in the hotel, we always received a greeting.  I even asked for late check-out since we wanted to prolong our stay and they accommodated our request (although in the end, we still left at 12NN because we finished getting ready early enough).

It was ideally located, close enough to the city but far enough to afford peace and quiet. It was also easy to navigate to other tourist attractions in Baguio and beyond.

The food was tasty, fresh and filling, good enough to get you started on your day.

I can easily recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to travel to Baguio.
