Comfort and Convenience at 1A Express Hotel

1A Express Hotel is Cagayan de Oro’s newest addition to the budding hotel industry in the city. While there are dozens of places to stay in Cagayan de Oro available for travelers and visitors to choose from, 1A Express Hotel is definitely one place to highly consider for the following reasons.

Location

1A Express Hotel is conveniently located in One Avenue Building (beside Magnum Radyo), CM Recto Sts. CDO. It is just few meters away from Centrio Mall, the soon to be opened SM Premier, Gaisano City & Gaisano mall. It is also just across a Wellness Spa for those who just had a long day probably adventuring or touring the city. It is next to the highway so looking for a ride to get you to where you want to go is not a hassle.

 

Cozy and Neat Rooms

The entire hotel is neat. No fancy stuff outside or on its hallways but the simplicity of the place is calming and beautiful. The interiors are attractive, the piece of art(s) displayed in specific areas are pose-worthy (hey instagrammers! You cannot miss the glorious chairs and the paintings! :D). The rooms nicely done and comfortable spacious bed is heaven! You can stay there the entire day!

 

Peace and Quite

Who doesn’t love a peaceful environment to stay especially when you are on a vacation or in a staycation mode? We love the fact that 1A Express Hotel despite being located along the busy highway of CM Recto, the rooms are spared from the vehicles’ noise outside, it’s really amazing that guests can have a peaceful time inside their room while everyone are hustling and bustling outside.

 

Fast and Reliable Internet Connection

With today’s fast-paced lifestyle and technology trend, Internet connection is among the priorities of hotel guests. For those travelling and working at the same time where Internet access is a prime concern, 1A Express Hotel gives you seriously fast and reliable Internet connection to ensure you are not behind your tasks. On a personal note, I finished watching the entire season of a one TV series during my stay at the hotel without getting annoyed of this “buffering” thing.

 

Food! Complimentary Breakfast

1A Express Hotel treats their guests to a hearty and delicious breakfast after a relaxing night’s rest. For the guests complimentary breakfast (2 per room), their menu consists of Beef Tapa, Chicken/Pork Tocino, Friend Chicken, or Pancakes. Each comes with a hot beverage either coffee or hot choco plus a glass of orange juice. We personally love the pancakes!

Friendly, Courteous Hotel Staff and Other Amenities

The friendly staff makes 1A Express Hotel guests feel instantly at home the moment they set foot inside the hotel. Express a warm welcome and greetings from the smiling staff at the reception making sure that your stay is convenient, comfortable, and worthwhile. They make sure that your room is tidy when you get back from your day’s business outside. Everyone is just accommodating and welcoming. Thank you ladies and gents for doing such a great job!

And oh! 1A Express Hotel is the first hotel in Cagayan de Oro to have a coin operated laundry station. So if you are a guest staying for a while, you don’t have to worry about running out of clothes to wear because the laundry station is just at the ground floor to conveniently accommodate the guests’ laundry at a minimal cost. Drop them off, put them in the machine and wait comfortably inside your room or at the lobby while browsing the net or chatting with your friends over social media.

These are just few of the reasons why we highly recommend 1A Express Hotel to visitors and travelers. Experience comfort and convenience when in Cagayan de Oro by choosing 1A Express Hotel as your temporary home.

Based on data from the first National Baseline Survey on Financial Inclusion released by the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas in 2015, it is estimated that on average, Filipinos take around 22 minutes to reach the nearest financial services touchpoint. It also costs an average of P43 a roundtrip fare.

With 15,000 Smart Padala centers nationwide, there is a Smart Padala center in almost every municipality so Filipinos do not need to spend time and money to travel just to send or receive remittances. These centers include the recently launched Smart Padala International flagship stores that enable consumers to receive money from abroad.

All they need to do is complete the basic requirements (permits), have a physical store and a minimum amount to be able to facilitate processing of remittances. Being a Smart Padala center allows microentrepreneurs to be a ne-stop shop for all the remittance and payment necessities of their cocmmunity, whether sending or receiving money, loading prepaid accounts, or paying bills.
