Mines View Park Hotel: Capturing Baguio Feels

mines view park hotel

Looking for Baguio hotels with memories of olden summers, of strawberries and pine trees? Mines View Park Hotel captures those whimsical feelings within its walls.

Being a backpacker and a cheapster at heart, I don’t really prefer staying at hotels when I travel. Usually, I find that most hotels are so detached from the destination itself. They become an illusion of comfort that it locks you up in a room and makes you forget about the exploring what’s on the outside.

However, I like hotels that blends itself well with a certain place and its people. And in a culturally-rich destination like Baguio, finding a place to stay that promotes everything it stands for is rare.Mines View Park Hotel 1

I’m so thankful to discover Mines View Park Hotel, which infused tiny local elements in their big hospitality business. Mines View Park Hotel created all these unique landmark Baguio experiences: Who wouldn’t like wide windows with pine trees and valleys as its view? Or taste strawberry adobo when you get down for lunch?

Staying at Mines View Park Hotel is definitely worth considering if you want to fully experience Baguio hotels on your next staycation:

Where is Mines View Park Hotel?

Indeed strategically-located, Mines View Park Hotel is walking distance away from the Mines View Park. Its view gets you a glimpse of the old copper and gold mines of Itogon Town amidst Amburayan Valley.Mines View Park Hotel 4Mines View Park Hotel is also very near the Good Shepherd Convent. Here you can buy local delicacies such as strawberry jam, ube jam, peanut brittle and more. You can also take home famous products from Baguio such as brooms, vegetables and Benguet coffee.

Farther down the road, you can take a 15-minute walk from Mines View Park Hotel to Wright Park and The Mansion.

Go on a Baguio city trip with this guide!

 

How’s the food at at this Baguio Hotel?

One of the things you should look forward to once you book your stay is the food! With two hotel restaurants, the Zen’z Bar and Restaurant and Halfmoon Cafe, The Mines View Park Hotel is certainly amping up their gastronomic game. I’m sure you will love these old Filipino favorites infused with new but localized flavors:Mines View Park Hotel 3

Strawberry Adobo. The Filipino Adobo is a favorite with various recipes depending on where in the Philippines you are. Being located in Baguio, Mines View Park Hotel’s Zen’z added the sweetness of strawberry to its chunky adobo. My favorite!

Strawberry Sinigang. Another Filipino cuisine is the sinigang, characterized by sour taste of sampaloc cooked with vegetables. Adding strawberry to the mix gives it a more fruity taste.

Bibing-crepe. The traditional Filipino merienda, bibingka, like you’ve never tasted them before. Whether you choose a soft or crispy texture, the bibing-crepe can be customized into the dessert you’ll like. Feel free to add choco sprinkles, vanilla ice cream, marshmallows or our favorite, the in-house langka spread!

    The last time I went to Baguio was like 15 years ago? I’m planning to visit soon and with the affordable rates of Mines View Park Hotel, I think I’ll stay here. Very reasonable price and the area is nice too.

    Great review! I like your take on booking hotels, it should at least promote the culture of the city it’s built in to encourage travelers to explore. 😀

    Reading your description of the hotel, and the food mostly, a question popped into my mind. What is Adobo? In the picture it looks really good and I love strawberries so I am wondering what is it.
    The hotel looks likes it’s in a very peaceful location, very good for relaxation. 🙂

      Haha! Adobo is the most popular dish in the Philippines. It’s usually chicken and pork on soy sauce and vinegar. It tastes really good. At least for us 🙂 Thanks for dropping by, Joanna!

    I miss Baguio City. I stayed in Microtel by Wyndham near Victory Liner bus station and I do agree on your first statement. Hotels are like placing a modernized homestay or a comfort zone that prevents you to discover the outside. Will definitely try Mines View Hotel in my next visit in Baguio 🙂
