Hotel Review of Paseo de Escolta in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar


Paseo de Escolta is a hotel style accommodation inside Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a heritage resort in Bagac, Bataan. The idea behind it is from an old business district in Manila during the 1900s, called Escolta.

Escolta was once Manila's downtown. It was the center of trade, business, and tourism. The streets primarily composed of hotels with retail shops on its lower floors. Now, a similar concept be seen at Paseo Escolta in Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar,
Paseo de Escolta consists of 16 guest rooms with 3 types namely: studio deluxe, studio deluxe with loft, and executive suites. My friends and I stayed in a studio deluxe with loft. This is a 2-floor room with 2 queen size beds (one at the first floor and another at the loft) and a bathroom.

This room was very spacious. While the published rate only includes 4 people, I believe it can accommodate more. The bathroom at the first floor was also huge. I loved it for its cleanliness with complete facilities including a bath tub. Basic toiletries were also provided.

I find the capiz-style window unique. It reminds me of a typical house in the province.
The room is made up of wood, thus it was very relaxing. Even at noontime, it wasn't that warm inside the room. Also, the wooden design brought a beautiful rustic look. The only downside was that the wooden door was hard to open and produced very cranky noise. Once, we had to call the reception to ask help in opening the door. Despite this, overall, we had a nice accommodation experience.
