  4. Thanks so much for the tour Ms.Rochelle. This is a very old hotel but I remember this was one of those hotels na pinangarap kong maHire ako when i ws still working in 5 star hotels. I switched to BPO na kaya nawala na sa plano :) But i still have friends working there, sana makapunta rin ako in the near future.

  5. Woah ! Napaka breath taking ng sceneries dito ! It's like "Waaaaaaah ! Sa Pilipinas ba talaga ang hotel na ito !" .. Super undeniably great and so amazing hotel. Aww ! Nagsisisi na ko na hindi ako sumama last year sa birthday Party na ginanap sa Manila Hotel. Atleast man lang kahit iba pa yung theme last year e makikita ko pa rin yung hotel. How I wish to work here after I graduate. Costumes palang nila napanganga na ko. Mukha pa silang mga European visitors hehe. You really are so lucky Ms. Rochelle and I congratulate you for that. I hope na maitour din ako jan sa Manila Hotel. Super namangha ako nung makita ko ang mga pictures paano pa kaya kung nakatapak na ko mismo sa lugar na yan !
    Thanks for this po. Maraming infos akong nakuha lalo na't nagaaral ako ng Hotel Management ! Sana makapag OJT ako jan huhu . Super nagandahan po talaga ako kahit na super mahal din ng room para dun sa hioneymoon hahha .
    God bless po ♥

  6. Ang kulit...yung costumes feel like you went back in time. Naalala ko tuloy yung mga romance novels na nababasa ko before...hahaha.. Goodness! Ang gara pala. I wish I could have an opportunity to go there too. Would love to experience touring the place.

  7. WOW! sobrang ganda naman dyan Ms Chelle, I love the princess like bed canopy haha girly na girly kasi ako so would love it pink, instead. LOL. Aside from vacation getaways, I think hotels were the places that is good to unwind (magastos nga lang but worth it, minsan lang naman). Sa lobby pa lang, I feel so amazed. Love looking at those chandeliers, I was joking with my mahal. sabi ko I want a chandelier when we have our own house, gusto ko sa Banyo lang namin may chandelier haha. How I wish I can also try this hotel in the near future.. a bit pricey nga lang ♥
