Staycation at Jinjiang Inn - Ortigas

It may seem fun and glamorous, but being a restaurateur actually requires a lot of hardwork, perseverance, and a strong heart to surpass all the challenges. As a start-up, we're too hands-on and preoccupied with the business that we forget to plan out for long breaks and holidays.

According to our industry friends, foot traffic in restaurants are relatively low during Holy Week, that's why we decided to pause our operations and take the days off to relax with our loved ones. Deo and I had no plans prior to Shibusa's announcement, so thank heavens there's Jinjiang Inn - Ortigas, who hosted our "city" getaway!

Our stay here was lovelier the second time around! Our first visit at Jinjiang Inn was with our blog family for our Christmas staycation. Back then, we didn't get to fully explore the hotel because we got caught up with stories, food, and a bit of booze. :p

Jinjiang Inn is a business boutique hotel situated right at the Ortigas Business District - near companies, shopping malls, and restaurants. They have 95 rooms to accommodate those staying in for business or leisure.

We were given the Business Room with amenities like cable TV, in-room safe, wide working table, and fridge. Aside from all those, what I loved most was their cozy bed; leaving it was almost impossible.

My claustrophobic self was also delighted with their huge shower room - complete with toiletries, towels, and hair dryer.

Deo connected his hard drive to our room's Smart TV and we watched two of our favorite movies - Chef and Begin Again. Ahhhh, exactly our kind of staycation! <3

Jinjiang Inn also offers FREE Wi-Fi internet access to their guests. Again, whether you're a business or leisure traveler, you'll find this feature very helpful so you'll stay connected! :) Speed was fairly fast - I got to download my favorite Weightlifting Fairy episodes in my Viu app! So happy!

At the lobby, landline phone and desktop units are available in case you need to use them. Usage is also FREE!

Gotta love Jinjiang Inn's location! We got to explore the streets of Kapitolyo for dinner. The movie "Chef" made us crave for Franklin's, so we headed to the nearest ribs place to satisfy our tummies. Glad RUB was still open!

Our stay also included breakfast buffet at Five Spice Asian Bistro. They offer decent selection of food, and they can cook eggs (your choice of omelette type).

Another note-worthy part of our staycation was their generosity to permit us to do late check-out. Double yay!

Overall, we had a lovely time at Jinjiang Inn - Ortigas. With their convenient location, affordable rates, good amenities and hospitable staff, we're definitely booking here again.
