Rosevinel Pension is one of only a very few hotels operating after Typhoon Yolanda flattened much of Tacloban. Under the circumstances, one can't ask for much. I was extremey happy to have a relatively clean room, clean sheets(!) and electricity (thanks to their private generator). The place is still recovering from nearly two meters of water from the storm surge and they offering only the most spartan of accommodations, including no dining facilities.
Due to the shortage of rooms in Tacloban, Rosevinel (as well as any other place that's operating) is packed solid and there is a waiting list ready to pounce on any room that comes available.
Despite the challenging conditions, I thought the staff could have been far more friendly. Just to get a cup of hot water for coffee or instant noodles seemed to be a major endeavor. Considering the market leverage they have, they're not gouging customers too badly though; I paid 1,600 pesos for a double room, with airconditioning and lights (pure luxury in Tacloban at present). But sadly, but no hot water for showers.
