Nice, right?

Here are my top five favorite things in Greenleaf Hotel GenSan:

  1. COMFY BED. I cannot stress enough the fact that I had a fantastic sleep. The bed is soft but not too soft and spacious. To complete the experience for a great sleep, the pillows and the comforters are oh so fluffy. And if I may correct myself, I didn’t sleep in a queen sized bed. It was a king sized bed.
  2. CLEAN AND WELL-DESIGNED WASHROOM AND SHOWER. Hot and cold showers. Bidet. Complete toiletries. Hair dryer. Pretty interiors. Fluffy, clean towels. What more can you ask for, really?
  3. COFFEE AND TEA BAR. Yup, aside from complimentary water, you get a free coffee and tea bar. I forgot to take a photo but the bar comes with different kinds of tea. This is important for those who are traveling for business and leisure. Coffee to keep us awake and alert. And tea for when we need to chill and relax.
  4. FAST FREE WIRELESS INTERNET. Again, for those who work on the go, this is a convenient thing. I have been to more expensive hotels with not free wireless internet. Or with a poor or unstable connection. Greenleaf’s wireless internet connection is super fast with download speed reaching up to 6 mbps. I was able to work online uninterrupted while I was there.
  5. AWESOME BREAKFAST BUFFET. Every room comes with complimentary breakfast buffet. I know that’s pretty standard for most hotels. But look at these.

    You may judge me but I’d like everyone to know I stayed for about 1 and half hours eating at the breakfast buffet. And I ate 10 pieces of crispy tasty bacon, among other things. HAHA!

One thing that I should not fail to mention is how great the hotel staff are. From the entrance to the front desk to up to the hallways and all parts of the hotel, everybody greeted and assisted me with a smile. Everyone as polite and respectful. I felt welcome and right at home.
