Being a 4-star hotel in Baguio plus the facade and lobby looks really inviting, it piqued our interest. We also used booking.com to make reservation for a night - Superior Room (discounted price PHP3000) including breakfast for 2.

PROS:
✔Breakfast buffet at Tradisyon is really great. Wide variety of foods and drinks.
✔Toiletries, hotel slippers, refrigerator, rice cooker, water heater, kettle, plates, spoons, cooking utensils are available
✔Kitchenette is a great addition. We were able to reheat our leftover food from dinner at Tradisyon and ate it during the wee hours in the morning
✔Cabled TV is working
✔Sofa and dining table are available too
✔Ample parking is available

CONS:
❌Elevator smells old.
❌We were disappointed when we reached the room. It looks gloomy. Since it does not have aircon and windows, it seemed hot. We requested to be moved to another room and Room 318 is better than Room 310 because of the screened windows.
❌Pillows have stains
❌Towels look dirty and unclean.
❌Hair dryer not working
❌No aircon (it seems something unexpected for a 4star hotel)
❌No view from windows; what is visible is the construction outside
❌CR is unclean. It has molds. I even used their free toothbrush in cleaning the bidet as the molds in it looks disgusting
❌A snack was charged in our bill upon checkout. Good thing I took pictures; it became my proof that we did not touch anything other than their complimentary bottled water

Not a good experience for me to want to go back. Hopefully, they take things seriously in getting their room cleaned and meet expectation of a 4star hotel. Their delicious free breakfast was the big factor of giving this a 3star.

My blogger friends and I are spending our weekend at the Summer Capital of the Philippines. We stayed in Azalea Residences for the rest of our weekend vacation.

The first 4-star serviced apartment hotel in Baguio City, Azalea Hotels & Residences enriches the Baguio holiday experience with its full services and amenities of a multi-use serviced apartment, complete with living, dining, and kitchen facilities in all its suites.

One cannot miss the eye-catching facade that makes up Azalea Hotels & Residences Baguio. Resembling a ski-resort, the structure is a clever inspiration for the Summer Capital's first vacation residence that brings thoughts of family vacations and friendly holidays.The towering facade sets the stage for what promises to be one of the most cherished Baguio holiday experience. After all, nowhere else can one find a place that has the conveniences of a hotel and the full services and amenities of a serviced-apartment. Azalea Residences is the place to be for families, friends, or business travelers on the lookout for the luxury of a hotel but with the atmosphere and comforts of home. Located a few minutes away from Session Road, Azalea is quietly tucked in a secluded hill that promises both the peace and gentleness of country living and the proximity to the city's main attractions and happenings.

Now let's see the room where we stayed in:

We stayed in the Two-Bedroom Apartment Suite which is 60 sqm. A maximum of six persons is allowed to check-in here.

Just like in luxury hotels, the room has an electronic identification door lock system, electronic in-room safe, the bathrooms have a hot and cold shower with Azalea-branded bath amenities (they smell so good); they also provide a hairdryer, vanity mirrors, robes, and an ironing facility. Cribs are also available upon request.

The room has a Master's bedroom with a queen-sized bed (this is where Bettina of BettinaBacani.com and I stayed--it also has its own bathroom), a guest room with one double-sized bed (Richie, the Pickiest Eater in the World stayed here), and one convertible sofa bed (Mark of Eatsplorations' bed). The living room and bedrooms all have an LCD TV with DVD player as well as cable channels and an analog telephone.

They got ultra comfortable beds with imported linens which make falling asleep so easy and getting out of bed so difficult.

The kitchen and dining area has electronic cooktops with range hood, a microwave oven, rice cooker, refrigerator, electric water kettle, dinnerware set, silverware set, pots and pans (these are in the drawer, I wasn't able to take a picture), complimentary tea and coffee amenity set, and complimentary bottled water. They also provide in-room dining. There are also smoke detectors and sprinkler system inside the rooms. The two-bedroom apartment suite also has a balcony which gives you a good view of Baguio City. Complimentary WiFi access is also available.

We had a 2-bedroom suite, with set up in the living area, which was spacious and good for 5 (or 6?) pax. The room was nice but their comforters and pillows probably need to be replaced with new ones already. Cleanliness, especially in the bathrooms, could be improved.

Hotel staff were warm and accommodating but their Manila Sales Office staff were the worst. Had troubles with reservation since they don't respond to emails timely and don't take phone calls seriously.

I loved my stay here. It was our church's summer conference last holy week. It was a good choice to stay here.

The hotel got 6 floors, my room was at the 5th floor. Guys who stayed on the sixth floor experienced poor ventilation at first, but the staff "pinasingaw" on the first day then the rest of their stay were good.

Their function room called "the tent" was hot during the morning. But it was cool in the evening.
There's another function room across the hotel itself which is better because it's an infrastructure, unlike the tent in which it does not provide proper protection from the sun. Parang tent talaga.

My room (512) was amazing. It was spacious. It had two more rooms inside; it's good for 5, but you may use their sofa bed for more bed space. The "master bedroom" its own bathroom (so there are two bathrooms in my room).
No air con, but it's not a problem since it's cool naman at night. They have huge ceiling fans naman.

The bathrooms were all good. Toilet- bidet check. Water is strong.

Best thing is their food, of course, that's why i'm rating them a 4.5 stars, because their food are great! It tastes well, not like other hotels that we had before.

There's a small lounge downstairs, but it does not have a cozy feel.

One of our go to hotel in Baguio. Some of their rooms have kitchen where we can cook, it's one of the amenities we look for since we love to buy fresh veggies from the baguio market and cook them.

Another thing I love about this hotel is that they're super clean! 💯💯💯

It was my first time to try Azalea Residences on my last Baguio trip and the experience was fab! Their staff are very friendly, it has clean and spacious accomodations and you'll be surprised to see some welcome drinks and cookies in the room waiting for you! You will immediately feel at home!

Downside: no signal and wifi inside the ground floor rooms so you need to go to the lobby if you need to take important calls or just to update your social media platforms.

This is absolutely one of the greatest parts of our Baguio trip.
This hotel is awesome. Interiors are nice, clean, service is excellent, the food is delicious and the best hot chocolate I have ever had in my life!
I would definitely stay here again and recommend it to all of my friends.

You must try their breakfast, and again- the hot chocolate!
Sobrang sarap nung hot chocolate gusto ko lagyan ng kanin at gawin champorado.

Recently I went to Azalea Hotels and Residences, the new hotel that has been gaining quite a buzz in social media has invited some bloggers, including myself, for a 3D2N rendezvous in Baguio.

It only took 6 minutes to get to the hotel from the Victory Liner terminal in Baguio to Azalea without the heavy traffic. It was 2 in the morning, I could understand if the staff was already feeling lethargic, but the people who greeted me were all nice and welcoming.

I was escorted by one of the staff to my room. I was surprised to see how big it is, with its own kitchen, a balcony, and a bathroom. The bed is big and inviting and I thought it’s where I would bunk but the bell boy led me to the last door at the end of the room. It opened to another bedroom, a smaller one but with its own TV, a closet, and side tables on each side of bed.

There are three doors on the right side of the room, the first one is also a bedroom where my roommate was billeted (her room has its own bathroom), the second door leads to a shower and toilet (this is what I used), and the third is the bedroom where I stayed.

Toiletries were provided and there were also complimentary coffee and tea. The kitchen is equipped with a fridge, water heating pot, and microwave oven. It was obviously made for you to never leave the room because everything was already there haha…

You can watch TV, cook, there’s free WiFi so you can surf the net too. And there’s even a balcony where you can just lounge and relax while enjoying the beautiful view of Baguio.

I went to my room and thought, where’s the aircon? Then I remembered that I was in Baguio, lol.

The bed, let’s talk about the bed. It has a thick and soft comforter that felt so good to snuggle in that I never want to wake up. I swear when I go under it, I'm out in a few minutes. It was ultra comfortable and I imagine more so if the weather was really cold. It’s May so the weather in Baguio was not on freezing levels, nevertheless, it was cool enough to not sweat a lot.

Azalea has its in-house resto café called, Tradisyon. This is where we had breakfast buffet-style while dinner and lunch were served to us by the staff. They serve Filipino food and I must say they were scrumptious.

There was a make-your-own noodles station and I had fun making my own mami. I went too far with the chili sauce though so I I spent a few minutes coughing like I was dying, lol. So go easy on the chili babe.

Many people say that when it comes to customer service, the Filipinos remain number 1. I have to agree especially with Azalea. Their staff is well-mannered, always ready to help, always greeting us with a smile. Indeed, they are one of the reasons my stay at Azalea has been comfortable.

Before this, I’ve already read a lot about Azalea Residences from fellow bloggers. They were happy about their stay of course and have been giving the hotel high recommendation. Because those stays were sponsored, I was under the impression the positive reviews may be tainted by obligation. I was proven wrong when I experienced it myself.

Baguio offers many options for lodging from budget-friendly, such as homestays and dormitory, to more luxurious like bed & breakfasts and hotels. In those times that I visited Baguio, I never tried a comfortable accommodation—and when I say comfortable I mean a hotel setting—until I was invited here. I'm the first to admit that I am willing to compromise comfort over budget, after all, when I travel, I am out wandering most of the time anyway. But I won't deny the fact that if I'm able, I'd rather be in a lodging where I'd be treated like a queen, with good and comfortable bedding and my own bathroom. And I'm happy that I was given a chance to experience just that at Azalea. So hell yeah I am recommending it to you guys, it's a good value for money.

Due to the scorching heat here in the metro, my mom who's a lakwachera too like me, decided to stay in Baguio for a week. She booked suites in Azalea Residences two weeks before the target date and thank God she was able to score accommodations despite the tourist influx! (May I just say that last weekend was hellish, Baguio was crowded, dirty, traffic everywhere and the weather was not that cold!)

Tucked in a narrow uphill street at Leonard Wood Loop, Azalea Hotels and Residences is a bit hidden from the busy central district. Mom searched for a condo-style accommodation and because we got used to Oakwood's lavish and humongous suites, we had high expectations with Azalea. Fortunately, it didn't disappoint.

Azalea is more of a serviced apartment, just like Oakwood. So if you're traveling with family or friends and you're willing to spend, this one's for you. If I'm not mistaken, they only got less than 99 units, all having its own kitchen, living room and bedroom. Sounds cool, right?

Bedroom has comfortable bed with fresh linens and pillows. It's a good reward after a tiring day of going around Baguio. There's a t with dvd player. Hot and Cold shower is also there with Azalea-branded toilettries. Tip: you can request for more shampoo/soap, just ask the housekeeping. Moreover, the kikay in me was delighted when I saw that they have hairdryer and vanity mirrors! Too vain, I know. Haha 128521

As I've said, each suite has its own fully-equipped kitchen. If you're on a tight budget or just simply lazy to go out, you can have your own food cooked in the kitchen. They have electric tops with range hood, microwave oven, rice cooker, electric water kettle, refrigerator and even pots and pans. Mini bar is also provided for guests. I planned to whip up something tasty as midnight snack but I was too tired (and lazy) everytime we went back to the hotel.

Living room is spacious too. It can be converted into a sleeping quarter if you and your companions are not maarte. Azalea got a huge sofa bed which can comfortably sleep two adults. We goofed around the sofa one afternoon and would you believe that we were able to squeeze ourselves in? I was with a big adult and two maharot kids, lahat malilikot. So yeah, the living room can be converted to another bedroom with no fuss. We also had a tv just like in the master's bedroom.

For the hotel facilities, they got no pool and gym. Maybe for others, that can be a major turnoff but not for me. It's perfectly okay because I never wanted to dip in pool with a chilly weather like Baguio. Nonetheless, they have a restaurant, bar lounge, function halls, basement parking, spa and massage services, drivers' quarters and even a playground for kids. The restaurant, Tradisyon, serves delicious food for an affordable rate. If I'm not mistaken, they had a mongolian buffet for just less than P500. You'll never worry about getting really hungry because they have tasty dishes, I can vouch for that. However if you want to try out other restos, you can always go out and look for restos since the hotel is conveniently close to the city. By the way, across the street is Teacher's Camp and also near the place is Laperal House, so if you're adventurous and brave, you can pay the ghosts a visit! 128516

Overall, our experience here was good. Superb customer service. Useful and nice suites. Courteous hotel staff. I haven't seen anyone who had a long face while on duty during our stay. It's a factor for me because I hate grumpy staff. Will definitely come back here.

Prices for Azalea suites:

One bedroom suite with balcony- P10,300 during Peak season and P8800 during Regular season

Two bedroom suite with balcony-P14,700 during Peak season and P13,200 for Regular season

They also have Three bedroom suites and deluxe hotel rooms but I don't know their prices. 128522

Overall stay: 4

The first hotel that I have searched that has available room/s for our preferred dates: Jan 1-2 and for a pax of 7, It was pricey but I think it was worth it in some ways, Not to mention the balcony that our room has (the smell is very unpleasant as well as the parking) maybe the management should take actions on this one..
The room is spacious (2 br apartment type) includes: 2 bedroom with fully equipped kitchenwares, 3 television and 2 comfort room..
You can actually order food with a reasonable amount.. The buffet was ok.. It's true there's no bacon and yogurt.. But still we managed to enjoy our stay here .. My nephews love to roam around in the lobby and near the fountain.. the staffs are very accommodating and friendly ..

I stayed here for 2 nights for a business trip. Once we arrived, we were welcomed with cups of rich hot chocolate. Perfect for the cold weather! 9749

Rooms were spacious, and equipped with kitchen facilities. You can bring food to cook if you don't want to go out or if you don't want to order from their room service. You can even request for a rice cooker, and other kitchen utensils that you may need. I didn't really like the washroom because it was so cramped.

As for their breakfast buffet, there's not quite a lot to choose from. How I wish they had bacon. Boo! :(

Staff was very friendly and accommodating. They never fail to greet the guests and answer all enquiries. They're also always ready to flash a smile. Good job to them! :)

Totally loved this place where we stayed at Baguio!

Welcome drinks were offered during our arrival and fast service was rendered during the check in. Staffs were very friendly and accommodating.

Some rooms may not have views but it is very spacious and clean.

Their breakfast buffet is great!! I just couldn't get enough it. Servers quickly refill the food station whenever they see it almost empty. The ambiance in their is very calming which is nice because of the interior design and also the view outside.

Stayed in Azalea for three times already in just half a year! The ambiance of Baguio is my stress reliever 128522

The first thing that I like about Azalea is we can always do an early check-in, the earliest was at 9AM with no additional cost at all and that was SUMMER! Shhh! 128513

Rooms are nice and clean. I like their set of toiletries because it includes a lotion, which I always forget to bring. 128517

Did I mention that they have cooking/dining wares? Yes! The boyfriend and I just prefer staycation whenever we go here, so we just cook by ourselves. I mean he (Allan L) cooks, then we will eat. lol 1285139996

I also like the fact that they have a balcony on some rooms. I just love the view of Baguio!

The last time I went here was during my Birthday, and that was off season, I just noticed that they have a few choices on the breakfast buffet spread during that time. Sad! I'm a breakfast person. 128546

Anyhoo, I'm sure that we will be back SOON! SOON!! 128513128521

Good location & parking.
Clean rooms & bathrooms. Extra sofa bed for big group checking-in.
They need to add lights (or leave the lights on?) especially on hallways going to rooms.

A decent place to stay. Location: near the Botanical Gardens. Rooms: spacious and practical. Each unit has a full service kitchen which you can make use of. Suitable for families and the budget-conscious. Oh, and ours had a balcony too. Kulang na lang, outdoor furniture. Just make sure you specify a room with a view because ours had none. We faced a wall with lots of vines growing on it. Service: excellent. Response time would be 2 minutes. Guess it helped that we were on the 2nd floor. Bathroom: ok. Nothing fancy, yet not shabby either. The shower, however, was bipolar. The water coming out was either too hot or too cold. For people with kids, this could be a turnoff. In my case, I even had to ask for a pail and tabo for my 3-year old who kinda got traumatized by the sudden heat of the shower. Another thing: they don't have anti-slip rubber mats for the shower. If you're bringing kids here, be sure to bring your own rubber mat, so that your kids don't slip on the tiles. Overall, pk (puwede na). Will I stay here again? Sure, but they have to address the issues I pointed out first. Otherwise, I'll be heading off to the Manor, which I heard, is awesome.
