Le Chalet of L 'Fisher is the less expensive wing of the hotel. The rooms are generously sized. It had a bar ref with nothing in it. We booked originally a budget room with a double bed which was priced at P1,500/day. When I asked for 2 singles, it was considered an upgrade with a higher rate of P1,900/day. The air-conditioning was sufficient. The beds badly needed replacement as the springs have given way. I stayed here 2 years ago and did not have any complaints unlike this time. It was so soft that when you turn over, you almost spill out of your bed. They provide you with a urethane foam pillow which was much too hard. Proper fiber fill pillows would be much appreciated. When requesting for an extra pillow, they charged P50 for each one. For a room for 2 persons, they only provide 1 small bottle of drinking water. If you want more, they will again charge you extra. Yup, extra charges every step of the way.
The bed linens were quite good. Though the room was comfortable and clean, the sleep quality was poor because of bad condition of mattresses and pillow.
The room also comes with an electric kettle with nothing around to use it for. I found out upon checking out that we had to ask from housekeeping for coffee or tea. There was no sign to indicate any of that. We did not bother to ask earlier as they seemed to charge you for every added amenity.
Their reading light is also totally insufficient. It is almost impossible to read properly with their fixture. Also the convenience outlets are totally insufficient. Since they provide a TV, DVD player, Ref and a reading table/desk lamp there isn't enough for all of them. You have to unplug one to use the other. As it is, the table lamp is unplugged as you check-in. Considering this hotel is not as old as the original L 'Fisher, they did not take devices into consideration. You have to shuffle around the plugs. Though you have just another option under the night table, but this is not practical for lap tops.
Bathroom was comfortable and also generous. Again for the age of the hotel, I wondered why they did not use 1.6gal water closets rather the outdated 3 gallon tanks. They speak of conserving water by not having towels washed daily but totally miss out on a very important point, the economical water closets.
One thing that went well was that their wifi was working well and reasonably fast. I usually have a hard time connecting in other local hotels.
Breakfast was fair. No coffee refills for free. That comes with an added cost but that is fine. Their brewed coffee was actually quite good.
As a whole, it wasn't bad. I would still stay here because the location is very good. This hotel was definitely furnished with economy in mind.
