It was my first time to celebrate Chinese New Year at the place where the culture is really alive; Ongpin-Binondo-Chinatown. I accepted the invitation from Chinatown Lai Lai Hotel to experience their celebration. The re-opening of Lai Lai Hotel which was long known as the Binondo Suites had a change in management which brought about the over all renovation of the whole building. Now, Lai Lai hotel has the fresh vibe of a brand new hotel. Aside from a very functional lobby, checking-in has a twist, they will ask for your birthday and do some feng-shui kind of assessment to which part and floor should your room be, cool right?! So you know that your stay is not just about relaxation but also is in line with your birth sign, feeling lucky ang effect kasi na feng shui bongga!
We were given a tour on what their rooms look like. Standard and Deluxe rooms are good for couples or bff's because it is good for two and the space ia just enough for some comfortable rest and relaxation and comes with buffet breakfast. Personally, I am more interested when I saw the Superior and Executive rooms, mainly because they have a mini sala and dining area, not like in other hotels that their high end rooms just have a 2-seater coffee table. I got excited becasue of the space or condo-like set up, nakakatuwa na may sala yet the price range is very affordable, check out the photos para ma gets nyo yung kina aliw ko lol!

Anyway, all rooms are equipped with cable television, hot and cold shower and WiFi (yes!) Per room yan ha, not like others who offers their wifi in common areas lang like their lobby. What's more is they have a floor exclusively for functions and videoke. Yes! Rooms with videoke set up is available for those who feel like singing their hearts out as a form of bonding or just plainly to have fun, super nakaka aliw that they have this. But of course the best way to enjoy your stay is to go around Chinatown, my husband and I has long been planning to do that, but because malayo we are hesistant, but now that I discovered Lai-Lai Hotel, which is an affordable yet comfortable place to stay, I think we could achieve that plan soon.

P.S. I enjoyed the dragon dance and hopes that it gives us all good luck for 2016 :-)
Thank you Lai-Lai Hotel for the tour!
