At P1,400 (discounted rate, I think), their family room was the least nice we stayed in on this trip (comparing to P1,045/night at One Lourdes Dormitel in Iloilo and P2,200/night at Raymen Beach Resort in Guimaras). It looked and felt and smelled like an unused room in someone's house, hehe. The aircon worked well, and the musty smell in the room did disappear after the aircon was turned on. We had four single beds, two of which we just pushed together to accommodate our kids.
the sign at 15th street, along Lacson
the lobby, restaurant part
our family room had a garden view, and the garden had 2-3 such gazebos where people stayed a lot for the WiFi (which they turn off at midnight)
we never did get to try their pool since it started raining the minute we got there... and it didn't stop till we left for Manila
three of the beds in the family room; smallest TV we had to deal with too, but their housekeeping changed our sheets and towels everyday aside from cleaning the room
this was weird... a long, narrow hallway to the separate toilet and shower area (and you can easily hear your neighbors from here)... but we got used to it
Despite Saltimboca having a not-so-appealing room (I dare not call it ugly, but I also didnt expect it in a city like Bacolod and it was still very comfortable, in fairness), it is the only place that had free breakfast (for two) inclusive of the rates... and the location can't be beat, which makes it highly recommended still in my book.
chopped chorizo breakfast, which was good
area where you can eat, just off the garden; we dined here with takeout food which the inn charged corkage for (it was very minimal per head, I just forgot how much)
Just outside Saltimboca is the Balay Quince where shops and a Calea branch can be found. Across is L'Fisher Hotel, L'Cs bakeshop and L'Sea chinese restaurant. It's walking distance to Cafe Bob's, Starbucks, Casa Carmela, spas, other restaurants and bakeshops (Merci), laundromat, money changer, etc. It's a ride away from the cathedral and SM. Again, Saltimboca's location can't be beat. The savings we got from the affordable room were duly spent on cakes and other sweet things instead (but the 24/7 stores there sure charge more per item than 7-11!)
