We are now at the last leg of our Travel Mindanao journey and our final stop is the city of Cagayan de Oro in the province of Misamis Oriental. After our adventure-packed, the group needed a much-deserved breather and we are glad our Cagayan de Oro stay offered those and more. For the first two nights we were billeted at the fast growing budget hotel chain Tune Hotels and in out final night the small but cozy lodging at DDD Habitat Pension House CDO.

Tune Hotels CDO

Budget hotel chain, Tune Hotels, have already established their reputation as one of the no-frills accommodation in the country. I’ve stayed in several branches already and in every room I would expect the same standard of cleanliness, space and service. Something which is comforting to those who are looking for familiarity in a foreign place. There are about 159 rooms of different types, majority are Double Rooms, but there are twin rooms and family rooms with views of the city. They do not have their own dining area yet but there are a lot of eateries nearby.

Which brings me to the main advantage of staying in this branch of Tune Hotel – the location. Tune Hotels CDO is right smack in the commercial district of Cagayan de Oro that its only a walking distance from major malls like Centrio and Limketkai Center. Transportation hubs are also within the area if one is going to the airport or one is headed to nearby provinces of Iligan or Butuan. Tune Hotels is a top choice for Cagayan de oro stay if one wants to be near the city malls.

DDD Habitat Pension House CDO

The 11-room pension house near the bridge and river in West Cagayan de Oro is part of the small group of hotels by DDD Habitat. I’ve stayed at their DDD Habitat Batanes and I remember them more fondly on their very hospitable staff. Same goes for the DDD Habitat Pension House in CDO, they have very amiable staff as well. The rooms have a homey feel and It’s a nice touch to have the rooms named from different tribes in Mindanao. They do have airconditioning, cable TV and wifi reaching several rooms. They just have a slight water pressure problem when we were there but nothing drastic. Breakfast also comes with the room rates. They serve breakfast at 7am and can be brought in to the rooms.

DDD Habitat Pension House is a good Cagayan de oro stay if one wants to experience living deeper into the city. Aside being near the Agora Bus terminal, there are lots of barbecue station in the area and an interesting market scene nearby.
