ACL Suites: Budget-Friendly Stay in Quezon City

I love to travel. But sometimes, going on an out-of-town trip can be tedious and an energy-killer ( talk about long trips and all the tiring activities). And this is why sometimes I prefer to go on a staycation instead. This means I can just go somewhere on a weekend without consuming much time on the road and I don't have to unpack so much stuff when I return home. 

On this blog, I will share the recent staycation I had with my friends.

ACL Suites

ACL Suites prides itself as a hotel accommodation for value hunters. It is conveniently located in Cubao, Quezon City and has 44 well-appointed rooms that offers an assortment of choices from a standard to a suite room. It is some 10 minutes walk from Ali Mall and is well connected with public transport network.


I had a Suite Room, while my friends (3 of them) stayed on a Premiere One Bedroom.

To be honest, I wasn't really expecting much because I know this is a value hotel but I was surprised when I finally got the chance to check the room. Upon entrance in the Suite Room, I was  greeted by a dining/ living area connecting to the bedroom. I was impressed with how 'big' the room was and it gave me a 'serviced apartment' feels.

The living/dining space is a nice place to hang out with family and friends. At the time that we were there, we celebrated our friend's birthday and it was the perfect space for our beer and food. The air-conditioned room had a couch and a two-seater dining table. It also had a sink and kitchen cabinets. Just in case you need it, I learned you can request for dinnerware and utensils at the reception. One cannot cook though. 

The bedroom was immaculate. I appreciate the superior bed comfort. The wooden headboard adds charm to the room. The pillows were soft and added coziness to the space. It is also equipped with amenities like a cable TV, wardrobe and vanity area. Every time I have a staycation, sleep is my activity of choice. My stay here rewarded me a good night rest- I slept like a baby.

The private toilet and bath was modest and clean. It has basic toiletries, towels and a hot & cold shower.

The Premiere One Bedroom has 2 double beds that can fit 4 people. It has a dinette and a receiving area, too. The room is also equipped with an office area, a cable TV and a private T & B with basic toiletries and towels.


We had our dinner and breakfast at their in-house resto Urban Cafe. For dinner, we were served Pork Binagoongan, Beef Pho Kinalas, Sausage Pesto Pasta, Beef Salpicao and Beef Caldereta. 

The Pork Binagoongan and Beef Salpicao were our favorites! It was bursting with flavors and alluring aroma. The Beef Caldereta is the latest addition to their menu - each bite provided a forkful of comfort. The Sausage Pesto Pasta was also good. We finished off with a dainty leche flan- it was divine!

For breakfast we got Chicken Franks, Danggit, Bacon and Pork Tocino. It is served with a cup of hot rice, egg and coffee.

Cubao has a number of shopping centers and abundant dining options. Be amazed at spectacular wall-to-floor paintings at the 3D interactive art galleries at the Art in Island Gallery. You can also visit the oldest running gallery in the Philippines, the Sining Kamalig. Go bargain hunting and dine at Cubao Expo. Don't forget to drop by Farmer's market, too, for fresh seafoods, fruits and more!


The easiest way to go to Cubao is via MRT/LRT 2.

  • From  Cubao LRT 2, walk towards Ali Mall. 
  • Walk on Gen. Romulo Avenue.
  • Continue onto 13th Avenue. (ACL Suites is on the left.)

Via car From EDSA Cubao

  • Take the exit toward the Santolan Flyover 
  • Turn left onto Bonny Serrano Avenue
  • Turn left onto 13th Avenue


The hotel staff does a superb job of keeping the facilities clean. With its reasonable rate and perfect location, this is one of the more affordable staycation one can enjoy. The restaurant serves delicious food and the Wi-Fi was modest. If you're looking for a comfortable stay without having to leave the metro, ACL Suites had you covered.

Out of 5 stars, I give:

Cleanliness ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Friendly Hotel Staff ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Comfortable Bed  ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Good Location ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Value for Money ⭐⭐⭐⭐
