The original ancestral home now housing Rosevenil Pensione (with an old wing on the left side and expanded with a new three-storey wing building on the right flank) is located at Burgos Street. It offers an excellent quiet retreat with a homey ambiance. From the hotel you can easily reach the Sto. Nino Church on foot. It's just 5 to 15-minute tricycle / jeep ride from the city's shopping center and attractions like Sto. Nino Shrine and Heritage Museum.

We had a wonderful stay for four nights in a Deluxe Matrimonial Room Single (Php 830.00 per night) located on the third floor of the new wing. Our air-conditioned room was spacious and simple yet well designed. We were thrilled to see our huge king-sized bed and a glass window that allows ample natural light. The room is furnished with cable TV, phone, coffee table and chairs, standard closet, a bedside table and lamp. It has private bathroom with shower and toilet.

The De Luxe Rooms are situated on the higher floors in the new wing building with wide balcony/hallway. The pensione has no elevator. For elderly, I suggest you book a room on the ground floor.

The place has a large free parking area. It has also a nice garden where you can relax after a long day. The hotel restaurant Socsargen Grill is open to everyone.

Overall, we loved our stay at this pensione. It does not dig a hole in the pocket of its guests. We would be happy to stay here again. This place is good for travelers who would be staying for more than a week. Early reservation is a must!

Pros: Great value for money
Cons: Does not accept credit cards

  3. Hi anon,
    It has a balcony but not private. More like a hallway as seen on the 6th photo.

    Hi! Thanks for this artice. I would just like to ask if that room, the one you occupied, can accommodate 3 persons. thanks again

  5. Hi anon,
    yes, it can accommodate an extra person but there's an extra charge i think.

  6. We recommend this place if you are coming over to Tacloban for a vacation. Aside from the affordable rate, the hotel is clean and the friendly staff is what we like most.
