My brother handed over a voucher to me for an overnight stay in Kartini Hotel located in Kawit, Cavite. I was quite familiar with the place because I used to see that when on a bus ride going to Pico de Loro.
Kartini Hotel is a 3-star hotel (or 4?) with contemporary rooms as they call it. There only are few hotels in Kawit and Kartini Hotel is the only one that’s offering a casino play. They were partnered with PAGCOR (Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corporation). You may access the casino area even when you’re a guest and didn’t actually book a hotel room.
Facilities include a restaurant o a bar & restaurant, function rooms for different occasions, casino, and rooms if you’d like to stay for the night for a reasonable price. Sadly, they don’t have a pool in the hotel but boy, they have plenty of spaces for parking.
As for our stay, after the voucher was acknowledged, we were brought to our room. The rooms were named after ladies with the famous names, ours was Princess Eleonore.
The room was just okay honestly. There was no wow factor in it. The good side was that the place was peaceful and quiet. The room was just like other typical rooms. The bed was just normal, the mattress or the foams were normal too, just soft but nothing more. Nothing too special about the room that was offered to us. Maybe because it came from a voucher, hence, it was a free staycation. Not sure about the other rooms but if I’m gonna base it on the photo, some of them looked awesome.
We’re still glad we stayed, though. The staff was all accommodating and courteous. Every time you see each one of them is a smile. And we still had a good sleep.
Before we call it a night, we stayed in the bar & restaurant section for a few drinks. I and Jane were the only guests inside the bar by that time because others had already left. There was a live singing performance and it was quite cool.
We ought to explore the vicinity as well. At first, the corridors were quite confusing. Every corner was a puzzle even when the hotel itself wasn’t so big. The casino was located on the second floor.. or the third floor. I’m not quite sure now. But don’t worry, there will be directions on the way to the casino.
I was amazed by the casino area. That was the first time I was able to see a real casino. Slot machines, baccarat dealer and players, blackjack, and many other games. We haven’t tried anything. I don’t wanna end up bankrupt just because it was my first time in the casino. Maybe next time, when I have some extra money to spend.
So to sum it up, if you’re looking for a quick stay, Kartini Hotel is good for you. If you’re looking for a place to play casino, Kartini Hotel is the best for you if you’re within the vicinity. If you’re looking for a quick drink, you can also have it here. If you’re looking for function rooms, they have a few available. The staffs in Kartini Hotel were awesome, you won’t have problems with them.
They currently have promos too. You might wanna check them out. An eat-all-you-can buffet for 250 Pesos. I heard that the food here was great. We haven’t had the chance to eat in the restaurant because we already ate other food from the outside.
Establishments could be found elsewhere outside Kartini Hotel. Just a few meters away and there’s a coffee shop. Just another block and there are convenience stores. Check for it and look around.
