Where to Have a Staycation in Manila: Privato Quezon City

(Privato Quezon City was formerly known as Meranti Hotel Quezon City.)

‘Me time’ has always been in my vocabulary. I am always looking for some peace and quiet places in Metro Manila if I cannot afford to travel home in Batangas. Since I have been regularly jogging in Scout Area in Quezon City, I was able to pass by several hotels and restaurants. And that is when I saw some hotels in Quezon City and Privato Quezon City or Meranti Hotel Quezon City caught my attention.

Located at the quiet neighborhood of Scout Castor Street, Quezon City, I think Privato Quezon City can give me the peacefulness I need. The view of the lobby from the outside is so inviting. Plus, it is close to establishments such as nice restaurants and convenience stores.

The Check-In Process

The check-in process was a breeze and the staff were really courteous and attentive. I did not have a prior reservation but I did not experience any hassle during the check-in process. Also, thank God they have available rooms that night. You will be served a welcome drink while waiting for your check-in to be processed.

Upon entering the room, I took photos of every corner. The walls are not white, surprise! But the lights give enough illumination to the room.

HAHA excuse me while I take a mirror selfie :))

Another thing I loved about the room are the toiletries and the things written in it! It’s not as ordinary as reflecting the hotel logo with labels such as ‘shampoo’, ‘body wash’, and ‘soap’. For me this is so Instagram-worthy. But more than that, the toiletries are of high quality, especially the lotion.

I simply love the ambiance of the room. I can’t wait to pull off the sheets in my bed! Yay!

The Breakfast

I am a huge fan of hotel buffet breakfast because I am a huge eater like that (haha!), and I was really happy about the breakfast at Privato QC, number one, because, they have yummy and well-cooked crispy bacons!

They also serve other typical breakfast food such as fried rice, eggs, cereals, fresh fruits, and a variety of drinks. The breakfast area is located just beside the lobby.

Other Amenities

I have been hearing about beautiful the swimming pool is at Privato Quezon City, however I did not get the chance to visit or use it. I checked for photos in the internet and yes, the swimming pool is really beautiful! I definitely have to go back to Privato Quezon City for the swimming pool.

I only had an overnight stay at Privato QC and I would definitely want to come back. Privato QC is one of the hotels in Quezon City I can recommend for a perfect staycation place for family, for couples, or even for just you. The room, the food, the staff, the swimming pool – they are all great. You can book a hotel room for as low as Php3500. Privato Hotel Quezon City, hence, is more than just a staycation place. It will also give you proper relaxation, a happy tummy, and an overall nice experience.
