My sister, her daughter, my two sons and I stayed overnight in The Henry Hotel for a different experience in Cebu. I booked through Booking.com weeks earlier (for which I didn't pay anything in advance!) and pretty soon, I corresponded with the hotel staff regarding my booking via email.
Entering the hotel, I was reminded a bit of a hotel I stayed in in Madrid, Spain some years back which had a similar lobby set up, only that hotel had bold splashes of colors on its walls (Henry Hotel's more industrial cum artsy!). After waiting for 20 minutes in their quirky lobby, we were ushered in to our XXL room (Room 605) with the Moroccan theme (I could have wanted the room with the Gone with the Wind theme but I guess it was taken at that time). As in all other reviews, we found the room so spacious and cool that one can hold a small party inside! Just look at the photos of the hotel taken by my niece, Karla Mae!
We had a comfortably delightful time during our staycation.Since we knew that there was a DVD player in the room, we brought along some DVDs for a marathon viewing of horror flicks. The rooms in our two bedroom suite were not well lit I admit (something the hotel can improve on) but it added to "halloween" feel to the place. It later became so cold in the room that we had to call the front desk to send someone to adjust the air con setting for us!
Lunch and breakfast were at the ground floor cafe which has wonderfully designed (big high chairs/crazy chandeliers/etc.). The pool was quite empty when we were there but it was clean and inviting. There was a minor problem during check out as the amount billed to me was slightly higher than the one given to me by Booking.com, turned out that taxes were not included then.
Loved the hotel.... Will definitely stay again here with my family and friends!
