Mindanao hotel review: Sir George Pension House in Cagayan de Oro City
CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY MINDANAO – Here’s another value-for-your-money budget accommodation in Cagayan de Oro City, Mindanao – Sir George Pension House. Located at corner Pabayo and Gaerlan Streets (just a few blocks away from Divisoria), Sir George Pension House Cagayan de Oro is a new player in the Mindanao hotel and lodging industry.With more and more events being held in CDO and a very business-friendly atmosphere in Northern Mindanao, this cheap hotel in Cagayan de Oro is definitely a welcome addition to Mindanao tourism especially to the tourism efforts of CDO.
Here are the room rates of Sir George Pension House CDO:
Speaking of room rates, the range of room rates of this Cagayan de Oro budget hotel was actually the first thing that caught my attention. Not bad for an inn that also offers FREE wi-fi Internet, yes? (my humble homestead in Farm Town was therefore still very much well-maintained during my 2-day stay LOL)
The room that I got was a double room. It had a small television set which had cable connection, a telephone, a refrigerator (which I absolutely liked because that meant that I could easily just buy beverage from nearby convenience stores and place them in the fridge), cabinets for my clothes, a simple vanity table which also doubled as my work desk, a chair, a comfortable double bed with clean sheets and hot and cold shower. My room did have free wi-fi Internet although the hotel management staff told me that only selected rooms have strong wi-fi access. (I guess the ones near the guest reception area) I was provided with clean, fluffy towels and a bar of soap.
My room at Sir George Pension House Cagayan de Oro City was airconditioned and clean. Even though my room was right along a relatively busy street (Pabayo Street), it wasn’t noisy at night. It also had enough space for me to move around – unlike many cramped budget inns.
The only downside about the room that I got was the very weak water pressure at the washroom. I had to request for a tabo and a timba (pail). Oddly enough, the shower was all right — there just wasn’t enough water pressure for you to flush the toilet. There also wasn’t a garbage can in the washroom (which for me is a bit necessary). The only garbage can was found at the vanity table area.
Other than these, there wasn’t anything else to complain about. The staff members were friendly. Even the security guard was helpful enough to hail a taxi for me.
By the way, you might be surprised to find that this Cagayan de Oro pension house uses a ramp (instead of stairs) from the reception desk towards the second floor. It was all right for me but for those of you who might wear heels during your stay at Sir George Pension House, just make sure that you hold on to the railings very well!
All in all — I highly recommend that you stay at Sir George Pension House Cagayan de Oro. If you’re in need of a clean, decent airconditioned room that also offers free wi-fi Internet, then check out this place…and please don’t forget to mention that you found out all about their budget inn here at Mindanaoan! 🙂 Thankies!
