Golden Gate Suites: A Practical Choice For Family Travelers In Dumaguete City

    Booking at Golden Gate Suites

    Conveniently located in the heart of downtown Dumaguete City, the best that the city has to offer is just one tricycle ride away from Golden Gate Suites.

    Of course, the good reviews posted on most hotel booking sites convinced us even more to choose Golden Gate Suites.

    Our room

    Our room at Golden Gate Suites had all the basic amenities to keep us comfortable during our stay. The bed was big enough for Khris and me. It had fresh mattresses that smelled good, and the foam was firm enough to support our backs.

    The air conditioning was also strong which was good because it can get really hot sometimes. Overall, the room was clean as well as the toilet looked well-maintained.

    Food options

    Golden Gate Suites did not have an in-house restaurant but there are convenience stores and coffee shops right outside the hotel. We frequented the 7-11 convenience store outside the hotel for our coffee and snacks.

    Furthermore, the hotel staff was very helpful with my inquiries, even my questions late at night when Khris and I were traveling from Cebu to Dumaguete. At around Php798/night, it was a definite steal.

    All in all, I would recommend Golden Gate Suites to those who are looking for affordable and clean accommodation in Dumaguete City. While the price was easy on the pocket, the room did not look cheap at all.
