Elison Hotel: A Cheap Place To Stay In Balanga City, Bataan, Philippines

I’ve been wanting to write about a cheap hotel in Balanga city, Philippines for quite sometime but because of workload at our family business plus other chores, I couldn’t find the time. Luckily, a friend who was visiting Bataan for a weekend obliged to write a short review for me as a favor and as a bonus – she even provided me with photos!

I have stayed in this hotel in my first visits to Balanga but in all honesty, during those visits – I have not thought of reviewing cheap hotels and apartelles to stay-in in the Philippines to benefit my readers. I know better now.

My personal comment during my stay at Elison Hotel was that the rooms I’ve tried were similar to the rooms I’ve stayed at in Quezon City (here and here) but bigger. You will notice that their room rate is much higher than those in Quezon City but if you’re looking for the cheapest hotel in Balanga City with acceptable standards, frugal people like me would choose Elison Hotel.

In addition, in my experience, although they say that hot water is available in the rooms – do not expect it. I have not have the opportunity to having a hot water shower during the two times I stayed there. With the Philippines having warm weather all the time, who needs a hot water shower anyway? Just switch-off your airconditioning and your room feels like an oven in a few minutes – that’s when you take your shower! But they really have Wifi in all the rooms, though.

Enjoy the review article written by Nayz and I hope it will help you somehow.

Elison Hotel: A Cheap Place To Stay In Balanga City, Bataan, Philippines by Nayz

If you’re visiting Bataan and you’re looking for a convenient and cheap hotel to stay in, one of the good options would be the Elison Hotel.

Owned by Mr. Nelson David, this hotel is located in the central district of Balanga, and it’s very near the establishments in the place. It’s walking distance from the Centre Plaza Mall, from St. Josephs Church of Balanga and from eating places like Max’s, Jollibee, and Chowking.

Just outside of the hotel, there are already jeepneys and tricycles passing by, so there’s also no problem with public transportation.

We visited and checked out the place once, and the staff was very accommodating. They allowed us to see the rooms despite the fact that we would not really be staying. The receiving room had a homey ambiance to it, arranged just like the usual living room in the home.

The hotel has 29 rooms:
>> 7 single standard rooms – P1000 per night ($23.80 May2011)
>> 15 single deluxe rooms – P1150 ($27.40 May2011)
>> 3 twin deluxe rooms – P1600 ($38 May2011)
>> 1 family room good for 7 people – P3500 ($83.35 May2011) and
>> 3 rooms rated at P1800 per night ($42.85 May2011)

Extra bed can be requested for P200 ($4.75 May2011). All the rooms are airconditioned, come with a cable TV, hot and cold shower, cabinet, mirror, lampshade, and a telephone that is directly and automatically connected to the receiving room. The entire hotel also has free Wifi coverage plus free parking for all guests.

(Note by AdoboRepublic: Room prices rated on May 2011. Price may be different when you decide to book, so please call them first for their latest room rates.)

When we checked the rooms, we also asked the staff about the toiletries that they offer, and they showed us a complete complimentary toiletry set consisting of a sachet of shampoo, a small piece of soap, toothpaste sachet, and a small toothbrush. We scanned the different rooms, and we also noticed some thoughtful additions in the rooms such as slippers, a holy bible placed on the bedside table, plus personal touches on the toilet bowl and sink.

There’s a café within the hotel area named Café Eliza, and there are various kinds of food offered. The café, though, is only open from 6AM to 12 midnight. However, they also have a room delivery service – just call the front desk for your needed food. Plus, the hotel also offers laundry services.

Aside from the café, another amenity that you might enjoy in the hotel is its swimming pool, which is open to all guests from 6AM to 10PM.

Need to call somewhere? There’s a phone at the receiving area that you can use, but only for calling within the Balanga area. Security is also good in the hotel because there’s always a security guard on stand by. Plus, access to the rooms are through a sensor card, so you get the guarantee that your things inside are secured.

Check in time at the hotel is 1:00PM while check out time is 12 noon. The rooms are clean and cozy, although the ambiance outside is a little informal because of the open area going to the rooms. Inside the rooms, however, the atmosphere is warm and comfortable. (Check the photos of the rooms to see).

For reservations, the hotel number is (63-922) 815-8024 or (63-47) 237-2942. Their address is: Aguire St., Poblacion, Balanga City, Bataan (see in Google map).

Update (November 2013): Some visitors to this page was saying that the numbers are unreachable. I asked somebody to get their new numbers for me and this is what was sent: (0922)837-0204. Please inform me if this number worked or not. I would appreciate if any readers update me on their latest contact information.

Update (March 2014): Comment from reader Norinne says the phone number (0922)837-0204 is working and that their nightly rate is now PHP1,100. Thanks Norinne for the update.

  1. To staff of Elison Hotel in Balanga

    I will visit Balanga alone on April 6 and 7th to climb Mt.Samat.
    Therefore I reserve “the single standard room” of two days(on April 6 & 7).
    I will come to Elison Hotel on about the daytime of April 6.

    I stayed at Elison Hotel on April 2009.
    However, I could not go to the Mt. Samat because of rain that time.

    Therefore, I climb the Mt. Samat by all means this time.

    I wait for an answer from you. Thank you.

    Have a nice day:
    Hiromichi Suzuki

  2. Hello Mr. Suzuki,

    This blog is not owned by Elison Hotel, so it would be better if you call their numbers. They don’t have a website or email as well, so phoning them is the best way to communicate. To call them from Japan, just dial (010-63-922) 815-8024 or (010-63-47) 237-2942. I am also sending the information in your email. Thanks for the visit.

    Manuel

  3. ganun parin po rates galing ako last week dyan.sa inyo po yung ads na explore bataan fx with driver ganu po ka ginto price?

  4. Hi Jenie,

    Mabuti naman di pa din nagbabago ang rates nila. Maganda na ang Balanga ngayon, ‘no? Tungkol dun sa FX for rent, tawagan mo kaya yung nagpapa-upa kasi di ko alam ang singil nya. Email ko sayo ang number nya. Salamat sa pag-leave mo ng comment.

    Manuel

  5. @anonymous/LynCherill – sabi ni Jennie dito pareho pa din ang rates. Pero para sigurado kayo, tawag o text kayo sa number nila (0922) 815-8024 or (047) 237-2942. Thanks sa pagbisita nyo.

  6. @Chery – ang alam ko pwede sa 2 tao yung standard room. Pero para mas sigurado ka, text o kaya tawag ka sa kanila, (0922) 815-8024 or (047) 237-2942. Thanks.

  7. Anonymous, pwede yun. Ganun din kasi ang ginagawa ko kapag nasa Balanga ako. Pero syempre depende yun sa availability ng mga rooms, ha? Text mo sila para malaman mo kung available yung room na gusto mo sa date na dadating ka sa Balanga. Thanks ulit sa comment.

  8. @Cherry, you’re welcome.

    @Anonymous, o ayan tinanggal ko na pangalan mo. Siguro hindi na makikilala ng pinagtataguan mo yang anonymous, no? He he he he.

  11. @Eleyz, pasensya na, di ko alam kung meron silang short time. Meron silang mobile phone, pede mo sila text: (0922) 815-8024 o kaya tawag ka sa landline (047) 237-2942 para sa inquiry mo. Tinanggal ko din yung ibang number sa phone mo para wag kang bulabugin ng mga anonymous caller o texter.

    • @Eleyz, sorry di ko alam ang sagot dyan. Pakitawagan o text mo na lang sila. Pasensya na.

  12. Ganun ba? Ipapatanong ko kung meron silang bagong number, di ko din alam kung nagbago number nila. Salamat sa heads up.

  13. @Lia & Shallie, would you please try this number: (0922)837-0204. I would appreciate if you can verify and comment it here. Thanks.

  14. @ Lia & Shalie, you’re most welcome. Favor? If you check in at Elison, could you please give us some new info so others can benefit from it? Salamat.

  15. @Alyna, sorry po di ko nasagot agad tanong mo, anyway, di ba gumagana yung bagong number ulit – (0922)837-0204? Wala na kasi sa Balanga yung source ko kaya di ko na alam ang bagong contact number ng Elison.

    @ Maricel, di ko alam kung meron silang discount pag long stay ka. Kung gumagana yung phone na andito, pakitanong na lang po. Salamat.

    Para sa mga nagsubok sa Elison lately, baka naman meron kayong info sa bago nilang contact number, paki-share naman dito. Salamat.

  16. the no. 0922-837-0204 is still working as I was able to book today, Their current rate on standard room is P1,100. I hope this helps.

  17. Thank you, Norine, for the new info. Yes, it will help those who are looking for Elison’s phone number from this site. Have a great day!

  18. Hello ask ko lang po if nagpapapasok sila ng mga visitors? dahil dadalaw kami 3 ng friends ko sa Bataan and we wanted sana na dun nalang sa hotel makipag chikahan with our friends mga 4 to 6 persons sila na taga balangga?

    Thanks po

  19. Jeenie, oo naman pwede bumisita sayo mga kaibigan mo. Di naman sila nagbabawal tungkol dun.
