Seize the MOMent at The Plaza Hotel Balanga

We recently stayed at The Plaza Hotel in Balanga City, my beautiful hometown, and I have to say, it was pretty amazing. We haven't really had any chance to visit for quite some time. and whenever I visit, there's at least one new store or mall in town, and at least one favorite local spot from my childhood has been replaced by a new store or cafe. I love my hometown, and the people and the place I come from made me who I am. There will never be a day when the values I grew up with and the memories I had as a kid don't shape the way I do things, and I'm so grateful for that, because my roots are pretty damn beautiful.

Just like The Plaza Hotel. When we saw it, we were pleasantly surprised with its old world charm and beautiful architecture. Located strategically right smack in the middle of the Plaza Mayor de Ciudad de Balanga, this little hotel has great amenities and a number of wonderful promotions available.  It is walking distance from malls, stores, church, supermarkets, and is adjacent to the City Hall and across the 18th century Balanga Cathedral.

I love its impressive centuries-old façade inspired by Spanish colonial architecture, and decorative interiors with hints of contemporary design. I love the ease of proximity and of course, speedy Wi-Fi! Plus, the plaza's colorful fountain at night is a hit!

There are several types of rooms available at The Plaza Hotel. It has 34 stylishly furnished rooms with flat screen TVs and complimentary WiFi. Two function rooms are available for corporate meetings or social events for up to 140 persons.

We stayed at the Maria Clara Suite and it was spacious enough to fit our little family comfortably.

It has a spacious bathroom with a bathtub, which is an added fun activity for the kids.  For a bigger family, I would recommend getting the Ibarra Suite or the Presidential Suite with a fully furnished living area.

We enjoyed the sweet treats from Plaza Brew Coffee Co. and a complimentary bouquet of flower, which are included in their staycation package. Also, make sure to have a room with a view of the plaza.

Service at the front desk was impeccable. The staff at were polite, warm and accommodating. They were also happy to suggest must-try dishes at the Plaza Brew, an artisanal coffee shop located at the ground floor of The Plaza Hotel. You can enjoy sipping handcrafted brew, a wide selection of dessert, and an all-day menu with a sumptuous breakfast selection. Breakfast is from 6AM to 10AM.  Although the breakfast was only plated, food from the Café was good and filling.

I love the food and every breakfast meal didn't disappoint. I highly recommend their tapa, it's super yummy! Even my litttle Yuan loved it to bits!

Delicious food all day at The Plaza! But the highlight would be our sumptuous lunch at Cafe Kyoto, wherein they serve authentic Japanese cuisine, carefully prepared by their Japanese Executive Chef. They serve diverse Japanese dishes – sushi, ramen, tonkatsu, teppanyaki and many more.

We tried their Bento Boxes. For only Php400, you can get a Bento Box with an assortment of Everything was amazing. Here are some pics from our lunch during our stay;

I'm happy to report that we had an amazing experience at The Plaza Hotel in Balanga. Our overall experience was great! With such great service and amenities, I'm sure you and your family will enjoy your stay at The Plaza. I can't recommend it enough to families or travelers who are looking for a place while in Balanga City to do all the fun and exciting activities that this beautiful and bustling, little city has to offer.
