Book Instagram-Worthy Hotels and Hostels within Metro Manila via Traveloka App

Friday, April 07, 2017

Summer is all about having fun and getting together with the barkada! If the gang is pressed with budget constraints and have no plans to travel just yet, why not book for a hotel staycation?
In this post, I listed some of the most Instagram-worthy hotels and hostels for your next slumber party. Some I've already stayed in, while the others I just saw while browsing my Traveloka App, a known hotel and flight booking platform in Southeast Asia. I first learned about this app through a friend who is into budget traveling. She said that Traveloka offers the best and some exclusive deals on airfares and accommodations, and you will pay the published rates you will see on their app or website as is--no hidden charges! Ever since, it's one of my go-to apps whenever I am planning on my next trip.

My dad's birthday is coming soon, so earlier I decided to surprise the whole family and book a hotel!
I booked with my phone via the Traveloka app. This app is available for free in both App Store and Google Play.
Using Traveloka is easy and very convenient. I tap on "Hotels", and typed in my desired location, date, number of guests, and number of rooms.
Here are some of the results, showing each hotel's Tripadvisor ratings, and how much you saved by using the app. I utilized the Filter option to set a budget for the staycation.
As mentioned earlier, I decided to go for Azumi Boutique Hotel. In the app, you can see the basic details of the hotel--from the address, distance to major sites in the area, ratings, and hotel descriptions.
I picked 2 Queen Room with a Day Bed, and paid for it with my Visa card. Other payment options include Over-the-Counter, Debit Card, and Bank Deposit:
When hotel booking was confirmed, I immediately received an email and text message from Traveloka!
It looks so easy to book, right? What are you waiting for. Book your next staycation with Traveloka.
