The 100-room Go Hotel Iligan is a welcome addition to the hospitality industry in the city. Described by their company website as “an essential service hotel providing quality accommodation with a complete and convenient travel experience for the savvy professional, the go-getting trailblazer and the modern man/woman”, the place will definitely contribute to better visitor experience in the city.
A day before it’s soft opening, the management invited key people in the tourism sector and selected government officials to experience its service as part of a test run. I was included in the invite, so I went there last December 18, 2018 and checked-in for the night.
My Impressions on Go Hotel Iligan
- The Lobby is way bigger and spacious compared to other hotels of the same classification. I love the fact that they provided two (2) iMac desktop at the lobby for the guests. With lots of natural light coming in, the lobby is well lit and feels “airy”. Check in is fast and easy.
- As expected, the room is quite small but they differentiate from the others by placing the sink outside the comfort room. They also separated the toilet and shower so occupants can either take a bath or eliminate waste at the same time.
- Despite being profiled as a low-cost option for value lodging, I appreciate that they use high quality Windsor chiropractic beds, hypo-allergenic materials with 100% cotton sheets and duvet covers in their rooms. It may not feelas luxurious compared to business hotels but it’s still very comfortable. Mobile data signal is quite slow inside the rooms so it’s good that they provide fast wifi connection.
- I was surprised that they have a function room that can accommodate 200 guest and 2 smaller rooms dedicated to business meetings. This is a big help to the business community since the city sorely lack this kind of facility.
- Guests staying at the hotel have direct access to Robinsons Place Iligan Mall through a pathway at the second level where the function hall is situated.
Overall, Go hotel Iligan is one the best accommodation that the city can offer. Its location and facilities can certainly meet the needs of budget conscious travelers seeking comfortable lodgings.
