Homey Feel

Pensionne La Florentina’s facade screams hostel instead of a pension house. I personally love the wooden veranda-like design on each room’s facade. The fusion of old and modern design makes its facade truly eye-catching.

The property has a small wooden gate where the security guard is usually manning. Upon entrance, on the right is the reception area and on the left is a mini open hang-out place with wooden furnitures. In between is a glass door that serves as the main entrance of the building.

I should say that I did not expect much as Pensionne La Florentina’s rates are cheaply priced. Surprisingly, its lobby or should I say common area gives its guests a homey vibe. Most of the furnishings and fixtures are wooden. The antique fixtures and wooden furnitures will make you feel you’re traveling back Spanish-colonial era.

Clean, Simple and Homey Room

As expected from a budget accommodation, there is nothing fancy in the room.  The twin bedroom we booked via Agoda is very clean and well-maintained. There is a small old school TV with clear cable channels. The air-conditioning unit looks old but works perfectly. The beds and pillows are not first class but are definitely comfortable enough for a good night sleep. We personally loved the soft linens and pillow cases.

Just like the facade and common areas, the room has a homey vibe. I felt like I was just staying at a friend’s room. I love the lightning as it gives more homey atmosphere in the room.  As for the comfort room, it is very clean as well. Shower towels, toilet papers and soap are also provided.
