Small, safe hotel in the heart of the city. Can't be faulted on price and room basic but fine. Wifi not great, even in the lobby. Reception staff were good, especially the young guy in the evening. Would recommend this hotel.
- Free Wifi
- Free Parking
Very nice place but is becoming a bit dated. Furniture is worn and has old style TVs. Good WI-FI signal in rooms. Bed comfortable. Small comfort rooms. Quiet and clean. Front desk staff is very helpful with anything needed. Smoking allowed in lobby and common balcony area overlooking the street. Centrally located with everything you need right outside the front door.
The capital city of Catbalogan is not a bustling metropolis, so finding a good place to stay - in transit while transversing the Philippines' Eastern Nautical Highway; or in town for business, will be a challenge. But Rolet Hotel checks all the right boxes.
ACCESS. Located along Mabini Avenue means that it is on the first main street upon entering the City from the north.
AMBIENCE. The hotel has a very professional feel. Nothing flashy or classy, but will nonetheless give you a chance for decent eyeshut. And while power outages are common in this province, it has a good back-up power.
The hotel faces JCO Foodspot - the local version of Jollibee; and Mayong's, another bakery chain.
If you are visiting Catbalogan, Samar, stay at Rolet Hotel.
The hotel is located in the center of everything.
The rooms are clean, although they only supply you with one tiny piece of soap and a roll of tissue. Some of the rooms however have aircon that has no remote control and I never asked why. The beds are generally comfortable despite the flimsy beddings.
But what matters is- Rolet Hotel is affordable and the staff helpful.
Stayed at the Rolet Hotel for a little week visiting family in the beginning of November 2014. The room we got was just out to the main street wich was noicy 24/7 and with the broken window we had full effect of the noice. No restaurant in the hotel so all dining etc. we had to go elsewhere. Room was otherwise clean with 2 queen size beeds and private toilet/shower with hot and cold water. Hotel do not take credit cards so be aware when you check out to have enough cash. ATM can be found just 5 min. down the street turning right when getting out of the hotel to Mabini Street. Not suitable if you are not good with steps no elevators. Free WIFI in the reception area.
I have stayed at the Rolet hotel 3 times now. Every time I have found it clean, quiet and the staff and security guards (For our security) have always been polite and helpful. the entire time of all my visits I have felt safe and my things secure. This is not normal in Catbalogan. It is not 5 Star. Don't expect it. It is clean, functional and well maintained. It is central to the town and only 3 minutes walk to the main transport hub of the area. Prices are fair and I enjoyed the time there. I will certainly use it again and would recommend it to my friends. The Bathrooms are small but functional and "Yes" the toilet gets wet when you shower. (So what). It is a good hotel for its location, and better than others I have seen there.
