Staying at Meaco Hotel, Brgy. Karuhatan, Valenzuela City

There was no review whatsoever on Meaco Hotel, thus this piqued One Valenzuela's interest. The only comments she found are from those few people who have uploaded photos of the hotel and a few hints here and there that the hotel is worth staying with the family.

One Valenzuela got a deluxe room to stay in for the night. A short flight of stairs brought her to the third floor of the hotel.

Drinks and some snacks available at the lobby.
The room has the basic amenities that one will expect in a common hotel room. It is quite spacious which comes with a good sized bed, a cable television, WiFi connection, and  a remote controlled air-conditioning unit. She had to commend the use of the gold color on the head board and the gold rimmed mirror for these add pizzazz to the deluxe room. Other than that, the bathroom is also sizable where you can take a warm shower. Having the said amenities, One Valenzuela sees that the room rates are quite reasonable.

Cable television at the hotel (Drinks not included in  the room).
Being just along MacArthur Highway has its pros and cons. It is definitely strategic in terms of transportation and being near key food spots in the city (Little Beijing is a few meters away! Yellow Cab, Shakey's Pizza, and SM Valenzuela are very near.). But if you are a very light sleeper, the noise from the highway may not be very pleasant. To address this, One Valenzuela suggests that you ask the front desk to be situated in a room which is not on the highway side.
Bathroom slippers. One Valenzuela did not fit in this pair since she is a size 9. Ask for bigger slippers if you need a pair.
A night or two at Meaco Hotel is recommendable for people on short trips in Valenzuela City, especially if you want a bit of comfort during your travel. It is definitely pocket friendly for the budget traveller. Being a few meters walk to SM Valenzuela, key food spots, and a brief jeepney ride away from the Valenzuela City People's Park and City Hall, the room rates are of good value.
