Azalea Family Staycation



If you go on a working holiday/vacation with your family in Baguio City, you will need a place where your kids can be preoccupied while you work. There aren't that many hotels in Baguio who offer a play place for kids. In fact I have not seen one except Country Club that offers a day care service. But at Azalea, the play place is free. It is a thoughtful addition to vacationing families. :-)


You can do your work at the Tradisyon Restaurant sipping coffee while keeping watch of them play. For a family vacation, I think that is one of the strongest selling point of the hotel. 

While most of the deluxe rooms have veranda's, you may be given one without. You should request for it when booking. If you want to maximize your experience, book a room located at the front side of the hotel. It has better views than the back and at the same time you can also watch out for your kids play at the play place should you choose to work in the veranda. Unfortunately my room during my last stay was at the back so I wasn't able to let my 6-year old buddy go out alone. So instead, he took control of the television remote control and managed to find all the cartoon channels.


As for the foods, it's like eating at home with Filipino comfort foods just like what it said in the slogan. If your kid is as picky as mine, there are lots to choose from. 




The rooms are also equipped with electric stove, microwave oven and cooking utensils should you chose to cook your own food. The hotel is very near the City market, about 5 to 15 minutes drive depending on the traffic. Just a short trip to buy your needed ingredients. The family rooms also have enough spaces for small parties and gatherings.



For more places to play, Burnham park - Baguio's prime park, is just about 10 minutes away.  



Azalea is not a five star hotel and it has a road entrance that is a bit steep. But don't be fooled by the first impression. It's a jewel hidden in the heart of the City.
