Monti’s Place – Lipa, Batangas

There are times when you’re just at the right place at the right time to find something interesting and worth discovering. Those moments are what I live for. This is why I put up this site. This weekend, we found ourselves in Lipa, Batangas for some work and as night fell, we had to find a place to stay.

Though there were several hotels in the area, we were having trouble locating them. We decided to stick to the main road and then turn to Ayala Avenue to search for some place that wasn’t rented out by the hour or didn’t have stains on the bedsheets. We saw a sign on the road stating Monti’s Dine and Bed and took a turn into a small side street.

You couldn’t easily see the sign and the place is tucked at the end of a small side street so you wouldn’t really think it was there. Maybe it was serendipity that we found the place but as it turned out, it was one of the nicest discoveries we’ve had.

monti's place singleMonti’s Place, though by definition is a hotel, it’s actually a cross between a boutique hotel and a bed and breakfast. It’s precariously located at the end of a street and it only has 7 rooms. The design if very minimalist and it reminds me of this small Japanese hotel in a rustic prefecture. But the rooms are clean and bright.

They have one suite (Room 7) and a couple of singles and the rest are doubles. Each room has its own ensuite bathroom and a flat screen TV. I think it was an ingenious idea since the room is quite small. Every room also has Wi-Fi access and has a toiletries set for the guest.

The only negative things I would have to say about Monti’s Place is the fungi that has grown on the ceiling of our bathroom. Perhaps there is a leak from the upstairs room and from that, the area seemed to be conducive to growing fungi. Creepy things, they are. It looked like a spider at first (a huge one at that) but it turned out to be fungus. The rooms are also quite small. If you’re a foreigner, I assure you now that you wouldn’t be able to sit down properly on the toilet.

But if you’re looking forĀ  decent place to lay your head and rest for a while, Monti’s Place is absolutely perfect. It’s reasonably priced, clean and decent.
