Rich Manor: A Budget-Friendly Hotel in Cagayan de Oro City

Rich Manor Pension House is a budget-friendly accommodation option located right at the heart of Cagayan de Oro City. We recently checked in for an overnight stay here last month. We chose this hotel because of affordability and proximity to malls and other key city destinations. Here's my full review of Rich Manor:

LOCATION 

Conveniently located along Corrales Avenue, it is a stone's throw away from Ayala Centrio Mall and Gaisano City Mall. It is also close to Northern Mindanao Medical Center and Xavier University as well. It is within walking distance to many restaurants, including Boy Zugba and Big Flat Bread.

ROOM

We stayed in an air-conditioned matrimonial standard room (rate: Php 699; ~14.83 USD) on the 3rd floor. It is clean and the decor is consistent with the hotel's theme. Personally though, I find the headboard a bit too tacky. 



Overall, I think the rooms could use a design update to give it a fresh look. There is no wardrobe / closet for clothes. There's a cable TV mounted on the wall. Linen appears clean, although the blanket is surprisingly thin. Mirror in the bathroom is quite aged with white spots. Bathroom has a weird musty odor, which could be of cleaning agent not completely washed off.

TOILETRIES

They offer limited basic toiletries (toilet paper, soap, shampoo). We had to call reception to request for towel and rug for the bathroom. In fairness, the towel was freshly pressed when they delivered it to the room.

STAFF

Generally courteous, although I had to call reception 4 times before they picked up.


PRICE

Room rates are cheap in Rich Manor. If price is your primary basis for choosing a hotel, considering its strategic location, this hotel is quite a deal.

WiFi

There is slow WiFi connection in room.
