To cater to more smart travelers from the provinces and other countries who need affordable yet comfortable accommodations in Metro Manila, Go Hotels has opened four new branches that are strategically located across the metro.
The budget hotel chain obviously picked the new locations deliberately to take advantage of nearby prime destinations and ease of accessibility to major landmarks and centers.
“Metro Manila has an energetic spirit; it’s home to some of the country’s business districts and important landmarks,” said Go Hotels general manager Elizabeth D. Gregorio. “We plan to open more branches in the metro with the emergence and increasing number of smart travelers—local and international.”
The new branches bring Go Hotels’ total sites in the metro to seven. The budget hotel is also currently building a new site in Timog, Quezon City, which could be completed by 2018 or 2019. Here are the locations of the four newly opened Go Hotels branches and why they are ideal sites for a budget hotel.
Cubao, Quezon City
Location: Along Aurora Boulevard
The precinct of Metro Manila’s underground scene is a long time urbanite’s delight. Go Hotels guests in the site have a long list of recreational activities to do: shop at Gateway Mall, enjoy nightlife in various bars, discover quality thrift and antique shops within Cubao Expo, and watch scheduled games and entertainment events at the Big Dome (Araneta Coliseum, once the biggest events venue in the country).
North Avenue, Quezon City
Location: North EDSA, near LRT Roosevelt station
North Avenue along EDSA’s northern tip is home to some of the biggest and most frequented malls in the metro—SM North EDSA, Trinoma, and Ayala Malls Vertis North. It is also an institutional destination as there are nearby government offices, schools, and hospitals. Guests can also jog or relax at the Quezon City Memorial Circle or try nearby bars and restaurants for a unique gastronomic feast.
Location: 1412 A. Mabini Street (near Robinsons Place Manila)
The prime district in the City of Manila, the country’s beating heart and energetic urban hub, is also the location of a new Go Hotels site. Guests can wander in and around an arts and culture paradise—museums, art galleries, and the historic Rizal Park and Intramuros. They can also drop by the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, and 1335 Mabini. As for nighttime entertainment, Ermita is known as home to the liveliest and most vibrant bars in the city.
Manila Airport Road, Parañaque
Location: 608 Quirino Avenue, Parañaque City
Ninoy Aquino International Airport is the country’s main gateway to the rest of the world. The busiest air hub in the Philippines services about 30 million local and international passengers on the average each year. Go Hotels’ site along Manila Airport Road is near the uprising lifestyle entertainment and gaming center—Entertainment City or E-City (formerly Manila Bay Tourism City and PAGCOR City). Guests can also spend some leisure time at the Philippine Air Force Aerospace Museum within the Villamor Air Base or play golf at the Villamor Golf Club.
