Crown Hotel: Complete Naga Experience

Naga City - When we think of home, it can be anything (insert adjective) according to our tastes and senses. Naga City by far has ample of hotels across different types and offers that can suit every guests needs. From among the hotels in Naga City, personally, there is nothing else that I can compare Crown Hotel as a "home away from home" which you can describe  with a "Complete Naga Experience" from comfort, to food, to events and history. 

Heart of the Heart of Bicol and one of the firsts. We have numerous good hotels in the city and each has its own charm that attracts patrons. Crown Hotel has been serving local and foreign tourists for over decades now and started operations around 1960s. I grew up seeing this hotel right at the heart of the Heart of Bicol. All these years, Crown Hotel has proven their way to being one of the best recommended hotels in the city. No wonder, I keep seeing Crown Hotel in directories, travel magazines and guides like the prestigious Lonely Planet. I believe the hotel has the advantage of being the most strategically located hotel in the city. It is a hotel with three possible street as the address: Peñafrancia Avenue, P. Burgos St. and Elias Angeles St., beat that! They have the access to everything, from places, to lines of transportation that can bring guests to farther places, pharmacies, banks, malls and most especially food shops and restaurants serving local favorites and other national brands.

 Viva View! Viva Crown! For me, Crown the has best hotel view of downtown Naga all year round. The hotel does not only boasts the perfect location during Peñafrancia Festival but also during special events which are commonly held at the principal streets of Naga. The momentous "turn" of Ina's andas around Plaza Quince Martires is always a breathtaking view with goosebumps tickling your nerves upon hearing the cheer of faith from the devotees. Day or night and most especially if your room is adjacent to the Plaza Quince Martires, one would never get tired of the view and lights surrounding it.

"Fronting two of the city’s plazas, offering the best view of the metropolis from the hotel, Executive Suite A features a King-sized bed, a family lounge, as well as a spacious bathroom that includes a bath tub and a separate shower area."

"Features a king-sized bed and a spacious area. Whether you’re staying for business or pleasure, this suite’s promise of luxury and comfort is true." This room is perfect during Traslacion Procession.

De Luxe Twin Bed Php 3,000
This was our home during the #SSSstaycation with the #BicolBloggers
"De Luxe Twin features two standard beds. This room is ideal for those who are travelling with company. They also have adjacent De Luxe Twin rooms which are composed of two connecting rooms. These are perfect for families who prefer rooms which ensure privacy but still close enough to make bonding possible."
I was amazed how clean the bathroom was, I even asked if the tiles were new, which they weren't. Spotlessly clean and maintained. Plus plus point for me!
"De Luxe Single Php 2,500: Features a queen-sized bed that's perfect for couples.
It is a suitable setting for restful sleep and private retreat."
Basic, affordable and very "Nagueño-ish". Basic hotel accommodation that is affordable yet not sacrificing comfort and elegance. The hotel is not a five star hotel, who needs it anyway if you have all the means and access to everything you need around the hotel. Staying in Crown Hotel can make you feel like a local, thus very "Nagueño-ish".  

Standard Single Php 1,500

Standard Single and Standard Twin Bed rooms are very affordable and easy on the budget but not below the standard comfort that you could get. Since the hotel is right at the city center, there are rooms where street noises can be heard but just a little, I believe the hotel is working on it.
Standard Twin Bed Php 2,500
24-hour access to food cravings. First and foremost, Crown Hotel has Cafe Frederico and Crown Park Restaurant as their in-house café and restaurant (A separate blog plost will be dedicated for this). If you are looking for authentic Bicolano dishes, just turn to Peñafrancia Avenue and there you will find Mama Eñga with surprisingly low prices and tastes as good as home cooked meals but in a well-presented turo-turo scheme.  Elias Angeles on the other hand is home to 24-hour fast food chains with our local favorite Bigg's Diner fronting Plaza Quince Martires.

Every local favorite is just a walk away. Pinoy meryenda is just near the hotel such as Casa Moderna and Quality Bakery. Learn the Culture of Bulastog located at Plaza Rizal. It's like streetfood like no other with the value of honesty being practiced when you eat bulastog (kwek-kwek), isaw, bbq, etc. The Naga City Market or now known as Naga City People's Mall is just a block away and find cheap pasalubongs and the like. Naga Garden's toasted siopao and asado mami is also a walk away and the humble Kinalas near Plaza Quezon which only opens at night (You can always visit other Kinalas houses along Dayangdang). Visit San Francisco Parish church which is adjacent to Plaza Quince Martires then buy a steaming hot "Takop-Takop" or others call it Putong Bagas outside the church especially early in the morning.  Know a little bit of Naga and Bicol's history with the main Plazas of the city. All these can make you feel like us, like a local Nagueño.
Hotel employees are very courteous and attentive to their guests needs. If you need anything, just call the front desk and they will readily assist you. Flight bookings and tour packages are also available at the front desk. 

Crown Hotel is located right at the heart of Central Business District 1, Elias Angelest St. Naga City. They have a free shuttle service to and from Pili Airport daily. Contact the hotel at (054) 473 8305 for bookings.

New website will be launched SOON! http://crownhotel.ph
