          I requested for black coffee but staff didn't know what it meant”

          The package was free breakfast. I was served 3 in 1 coffee the first morning. When I commented that Batangas is known for barako coffee, the receptionist told me "gagawan po ng paraan". Told her I just need black coffee. I was served Barako coffee with sugar the following morning. When I told the staff that black coffee meant no sugar, she apologized. In places where international standards are set, black coffee is understood well. Also, drinks should not be pre-mixed. If it is 3-in-1, the client should be the one to open the packet and put in a cup of hot water ... for hygienic and safety/ security reasons... The TV cable have very few choices. I had to request clothes hangers as none were provided. Despite all these, the staff were polite... and my room was secure and safe.

          central city hotel go to Lipa-City/Batangas pier”

          very comfortable large bed, clean , large room, breakfast in room

          if you want ot go to Puerto Galera the hotel is far from the Batangas pier but direct infront of the hotel you can stop a bus going to Batangas pier, pay 30php and drive 30 min. So it is not a real problem.You can take a Jam Bus from Manila and stop direct in Lipa. Direct in fron of Cara Hotel you can take a multi cub going to the next SM Mal.

          My 5 day stay”

          Before I was satisfied with Hotel Cara, but the last two stay was a bit disappointing. Lots of ants and roaches in the room. Water is so slow.

          Nice hotel”

          The hotel lies between Robinson's and SM malls. Location may be difficult to find but tricycle drivers know the place. The hotel employs ojts to assist guests. Internet is ok. Room service was intermittent at the time of my stay. Hotel is good for brief stays.

          Different rates. Better contact the hotel.”

          The hotel has 12HRS, 24 HRS and overnight stay rates. If you have cash for payment better book directly to them. Agoda is only cheaper in a sense because they charge 3.5% additional cost if paid thru card.

          Large rooms

          My family stayed there for just about nine hours. We stayed there because we came from a wake of our relative. We just didn't want to travel late at night because it will be difficult for my brother in law to drive while being sleepy. When morning came and my husband was taking a bath, watter supply was halted. To cut the story short, only two out of five were able to take a decent shower and be able to clean ourselves.
