First you need to understand what a "pension house" is. This type of accommodation is usually a bed, toilet, and shower. However, I've been staying at this facility for almost 10 yrs now. The rooms are clean, the beds are Asian style (foam mattress on a wood frame) but still comfortable, nice flat screen TV with cable, WORKING air, and some snacks and coffee mix are provided with the room. Across the street down to the left there is an American themed sports bar and since you're on a main drag access to local malls and shopping is available by taxi, jeepney, or tri-cycle. You're in Asia so you're going to get the occasional bug running through. The people are nice and helpful who run the venue. This place is better than higher priced lodging in the area.
