I find it fascinating how small boutique hotels are starting to grow in Tomas Morato. I could see it slowly turning into Kalayaan of Makati, an area budget travelers frequent. And the best part of staying in this area is that you'll never run out of places to go to for food. But when your hotel already offers reasonably priced food, why head out?
Hello, B Hotel.
B Hotel is one of the many reputable establishments under The Bellevue Group of Hotels. It opened two years ago and since then got a steady number of patrons and is even commissioned as the accommodation of some beauty pageants. I'd know since there were several gorgeous ladies when we visited for dinner at Lobby Café sashaying their way around the lobby with their sashes on.
We were with some business partners for this visit so I made sure that everything would go smoothly. I made reservation for four at 6:30 p.m. but we got there a bit earlier due to the surprising lack of traffic. Nonetheless, we were warmly ushered to our table near the buffet area.
Our guests wanted to try Filipino specialties so they went with Chicken Pork Adobo (PHP295) and Veal Shank (PHP400) while R and I shared Grilled Norwegian Salmon (PHP631).
We also availed of the Happy Hour Promo where local beers (except Cervesa Negra and San Miguel Extra Dry) are at PHP80. We also got Apple Pie Bars (PHP150) and Cinnamon-Honey Crème Brûlée (PHP150) for dessert.
I wasn't able to try the Chicken Pork Adobo as there wasn't much for four. But based on how fast R's Thai supplier was able to finish the dish, it must have been very tasty.
I managed to get some of the bulalo's tender meat and clear soup. And it was your usual bulalo. The succulent veal shank was enjoyable though I found it a bit on the bland side. The cob of corn gave the broth a bit of sweet taste but it would have been better if it was also slightly tangy.
The grilled salmon was scrumptious. I may be a bit biased as I love salmon but this one was cooked well. It had that nice crisp skin yet keeping the inside juicy.
The mashed potato and side vegetables well seasoned and complemented the fish really well. Though steep at PHP631, I wouldn't mind ordering this again.
Our desserts were pretty good too. The apple pie had that lovely crunch from the thin apple slices.
The base was very dense and was not very sweet making it a beautiful treat for those who are not fond of sugar rush.
But I liked B Hotel's straightforward crème brûlée more though as I'm a sucker for caramelized sugar.
Food-wise, everything was good. However, service wasn't at par with what I expected from an establishment handled by The Bellevue Group.
I always have to ask for my refill of water and at times it was hard to catch the staff's attention. I'd understand if the place was packed but it wasn't. It also took some time before our desserts arrived. We had to follow it up more than twice. Same was true with the bill. It was a good thing that we were not in a hurry but if service continues to be this slow, I would never consider having lunch here. I do wish that they improve that.
Overall, it was still a pleasant experience. I'd still drop by when I'm around the area and not in a hurry.

My older sister got a promo. Php4,500 for a room good for 3 people with buffet breakfast and 2 hour karaoke with free 6 beers and nachos or pizza and iced tea. Not bad for siblings staycation. Room was clean and nice staff too!

HITS. One of the few decent hotels to stay in Quezon City. Appears to be industrial minimalist with slate walls and unique assemble of fixtures. Contemporary, clean room suitable for business trips and family with kids. The breakfast buffet included in the room package has a clad range of food options. Attending staff were nice and easy to deal with.
MISS. The pool at the low-level gives a slight discomfort as it is visible in the nearby residential areas.

Whenever the holiday breeze sweeps through the city I start hunting for a hotel where my small family can spend two nights before we journey up North to spend the Holidays with my parents. My husband usually lets me splurge during this season so I shy away from the boutique type hotels and the mid-range ones. But then a blessing came in the form of |ooloo days before I made a reservation to our chosen hotel somewhere in Makati. The |ooloo fairies randomly picked my Freezer Burn review as one of the winners for the #halloolooweengiveaway YAY! I dropped our plans and told hubby about it! I didn’t mind if it's in QC nor if it's not what I really really wanted! This one's for free and it can't get any better than that!
B Hotel QC is the mid-range arm of Bellevue Hotel in Alabang. There's also a B Hotel in Alabang that we already tried so I wasn't too hesitant with this one. Tucked away from the busy streets of QC, B Hotel was near Estrel's and even Kandle Cafe. I called their reservations line, booked our stay for two nights, requested for some specifics and done.
When we got there, check-in was a breeze! I just gave my GCs, left 2k for incidental charges which was refunded upon check-out and they gave our electronic room keys. We were assisted right away and in no time, we were cozy-ing up in our room.
Since this is a mid-range hotel, do not expect a grand lobby. B Hotel's lobby was simple but well organized. Their Cafe was just beside the reception area but they kept the space open so that it will not be cramped. They also had Christmas decorations here and there that added to the ambiance and a section with modern Christmas trees in different colors. The lobby had that homey feel, nothing to up tight and intimidating.
Onto the room, we got the Superior room and I requested for a king-sized bed. They kept the room simple and it reminded me so much of Azumi. As soon as you enter, you'll have the usual hotel room basics - bathroom to your right, cabinet with a safety vault and robes inside, your bar area with the complimentary water, coffee and tea, a personal ref and then the bed, study table, TV and a side chair.
The bathroom was walled with glass, frosted in one side but visibly clear in the other side that's facing the bed. We've seen this kind before and it was actually an advantage if you have kids because you will be able to peek on them, while you're doing your thing lol Don't worry though because you can just roll down the blinds to get your privacy back. No bath tub here but the usual hot shower was there, toilet and the complimentary stuff - shampoo, bath gel, shaving kit, dental kit and soap. It was spacious, mind you but obviously something was missing. THE SINK! This was the weird part but it was no big deal, really. The sink was located outside of the bathroom, just beside the cabinet and the bar area. That was the first time that I encountered something like that.
The room was well organized and I loved how they maximized the space. It came out spacious! There was a long wooden table by the wall that served as the study table, with a modern drop lamp by the side and a huge mirror, and this also held the TV. Across, the whole stretch of the wall was adorned with a head board that was upholstred and stretched across the entire wall. The bed was nothing but comfy - soft and bouncy, my daughters loved it!
Overall, the room had a modern industrial feel. Unfinished walls played with warm wood accents, wooden floors, a contrast of black and white from the bed and the head board, spot lights, accent lights from the headboard and lots of oulets for charging, including USB ones. It was a little stiff if you look at it but it was still comfy.
The hotel has a gym that guests can use and a swimming pool as well. The pool was simple, just a rectangular strech but it was an infinity type that's overlooking the QC skyline. It's perfect for an afternoon or night time dip and the water was warm. Not too kids friendly though coz it had the same depth across - 4ft. Nonetheless, we still enjoyed our time here and the pool was almost exclusively ours when we used it.
Also included in our stay was complimentary breakfast for two. They were kind enough though not to charge my eldest daughter coz she didn't really eat a lot. The breakfast was nothing fancy, basic breakfast food which I will review separately.
Overall, we had a great time during our stay. They were quick to send help when we called in for house keeping help several times but I guess what I really didn't like was the way they deactivate the room keys when it's checkout time. We asked for an hour extenson since we decided to have our lunch during our last day in their Cafe but our access to the elevator and room have been removed already. It was such a hassle but they reversed it right away.
