Residencia Heneral: Cheap Accommodation in General Santos City

When I learned that I will be going to General Santos City for a work-related travel, I immediately browsed the net for a cheap accommodation where I can stay overnight. As our company's budget for for accommodation is only up to 400 pesos/night, my search was confined only to within that price range. Fortunately, I came across Residencia Heneral during my search. Upon finding out that their room rates suit my preference, I immediately save their contact number so that I can book my stay while I am in transit to General Santos.

My reservation at Residencia Heneral was done hassle free via text messaging. Upon arriving at the bus terminal in General Santos City, I walked a few steps outside the terminal then took a tricycle ride in going to the inn.

Residencia Heneral is located along Pioneer Avenue. It is walking distance to General Santos City Hall, Plaza Heneral Santos and Freedom Park. Commercial establishments such as banks, convenience stores and fastfood chains can also be found nearby.

The inn have affordable room rates, ranging from P250.00 to P950.00, making it ideal for travelers with a tight budget. I stayed at their airconditioned Single Room with a rate of P400.00. The room is a bit small but is good enough for 2 persons. It has no TV but is equipped with its own CR.

Since this is a budget inn, expect to get only the basic amenities. Toiletries provided were only towel and soap while the bed has thin mattress, pillows and blanket. Free internet connection is only at the reception area and since my room has no TV, I entertained myself by checking browsing the net through my smartphone and own pocket WiFi.

You can order Tuna Silog dishes for only 39 pesos!

Those who are used to more luxurious accommodations may be turned off with what this inn can provide but it suited me just fine as I am not that picky when it comes to choosing a place to stay. Why pay more when all I need is a basic room to keep safe my belongings while I am out exploring the city and a bed to sleep peacefully at night. And that's what I exactly got during my stay at Residencia Heneral.

If you own a timeshare and are looking to get out of it, look in to the services of a timeshare exit company such as Wesley Financial Group or Primo Management Group. The Wesley Financial Group reviews and Primo Management Group reviews around the Internet are very positive.
