Asia Novotel Hotel - Dumaguete City

Asia Novotel Hotel

Asia Novotel Hotel is located on Gov.Perdices Street in Dumaguete City just down the street from Lee Plaza. Be on the lookout for their large green sign.  The Asia Hotel is in the heart of the city with easy access to the business district and Silliman University.  This is a pocket friendly hotel with clean rooms that still stay within budget. Currently double rooms with set you back around 850 pesos.  The rooms overlooking the street below have floor to ceiling windows that will let you take in the hustle and bustle below.  

The rooms are what you would expect when you pay 850 pesos.  No 1000 thread-count Egyptian sheets but you do get a comfortable mattress, television, air-con, and if you ask nicely and a room is available free in-room WIFI.  You'll want to be sure that you get a room next to the router or you'll have to head across the street to the McDonalds to get online.  One review we came across noted the lack of a backup generator.  I cannot confirm the lack of a generator since no brownouts occurred during our stay, but I can imagine that navigating the dark hallways could be pretty difficult.

Dumaguete Shopping

Who comes to Dumaguete City to stay in their hotel room the whole time?  The city is known for it's shopping, restaurants, and nightlife.  This is all at your fingertips when staying at the Asia Novotel.  One of two McDonalds is right across the street from the main entrance.  Lee Plaza is just down the block that has everything from clothes to kitchenware.  The Robinson Mall is just a short 10 peso trike drive away from downtown when the shopping isn't done but it's time to get out heat.   

Dinning & Nightlife

When you stay at Asia Novotel Hotel you are just a short walk from Rizal Boulevard and all of restaurants and bars.  Remember this is a university town.  When the sun goes down the city comes alive.  The boulevard is where most of the action is after dark.  No matter what you are looking for Dumaguete has it.  From singing your heart out at Wat Ever? or dancing the night away at Why Not...who cares?  You'll be have the time of your life and are just minutes away from your hotel room.

When the sun rises and you are looking for a place for a coffee and a quick bite to eat in the morning I can recommend the small bakery on the ground floor of Lee Plaza.  Great coffee and mixed coffee drinks are available and bread straight from the ovens.  I alway cringe a little when I see the staff at Bo's coffee peel the plastic wrapping off of my "freshly baked muffin." Lee Plaza bakery is definetly the way to go.

Asia Novotel Hotel Directions

Getting to Asia Novotel Hotel couldn't be easier.  Grab a trike for 10 pesos anywhere in town.  If the driver isn't familiar with the hotel just ask them to bring you to Lee Plaza.  The hotel's main entrance is just down the street on the same block as Lee Plaza.  The main entrance is not the most well pronounced at street level.  Be on the lookout for the large green sign.
