Zen Rooms: Portovita Towers Cubao

I and the Zen Rooms VIP’s had a Pre-summer staycation at Zen Rooms: Portovita Towers Cubao. Just last February 22, 2020, I finally met some of the famous travel bloggers that I follow on Facebook!

The whole team had a great night. We had some games, talked about the important updates about Zen Rooms, and ate a lot of food!

Before I give you a review about the Zen Rooms: Portovita Tower Cubao, I’d like to thank our sponsors, The Bar Premium Gin, Big Guys Pizza, and Frankie’s New York Buffalo Wings, which filled our stomach with delectable food and drinks. Check out my Instagram Posts with the hashtag: #zentravelwithkarla for more details.

If you live in the South like me, going home after a party will be difficult. It’s best to just rent an affordable accommodation for a good night sleep.

I stayed in a 1 Bed Room Accommodation. The bedroom includes a queen size bed, a closet, and a side table.

Outside the bedroom, you’ll find the dining area, and the kitchen. It includes some appliances like refrigerator, microwave, and electric kettle. I wasn’t able to find any cutlery so it’s best to bring your own.

Across the dining area, is the living room. The LED TV is ready for your Netflix and Chill night!

All the amenities are located on the 6th floor. To use them, you must present an amenity stub that the registered guest must claim on the room 21D. It’s strictly one stub per person per day only. Only two persons per room are allowed to use the amenities. On the other hand, guest without stub can pay 50 pesos at the front desk. Besides the swimming pool, guests can also access the gym.

The staff are generally accommodating. In the lobby, the guard gave me instructions on how to go to the Zen Rooms Reception. Apparently, it’s located on the 21st floor – Room D. The people from the room 21D are courteous. They explained the rules and escorted me to my assigned room.

In general, I’d say that Zen Rooms Portovita Tower Cubao is a good place to spend a weekend. I live in Cavite and I find it convenient to stay in Cubao because I can easily go to places from there. After my stay in Portovita Tower, I explored Pinto Art Art Museum in Antipolo, Rizal because it’s just ride away! I’ll tell you more about it on my next post.

  1. Grabe napakaaffordable talaga ng zenrooms plus okay yung mga units😊 Glad the place has pool. Para for my nephews if ever. Thanks for sharing this to us!

  2. I like that view of the pool. Hope this lockdown ends na so I can travel around the Philippines. I’ll check this property especially when I have events in Cubao.

  3. This is a simple property, no frills, all just for personal relaxation after a long day. It’s such a sulit budget accommodation considering na if you don’t have a stub for the amenities, you only pay Php50! That’s a total steal! Matry nga next time!

  4. actually, the prices of rooms from Zen rooms are super affordable and the selection is great! Your featured property looks great too! after this is all over i shall use them!

  5. nice place, the water is inviting (ang sexy nyo dyan! =) )

  7. Ohhh, ganun pala ang itsura sa loob ng Zen Rooms. I pass this by sometimes when I go to Cubao. 🙂

  8. Parang ang ganda! Do they have bigger rooms kaya? Palagay ko coco will enjoy here adik sa staycation to eh especially yung me nice pools! Happy you enjoyed!

  9. Oh wow I love the pool area! And true, minsan ginagawa ko yan, nagccheck in nalang ako sa murang hotel when i have to attend an event far from home. Much safer pa than traveling late at night (if late matapos). 🙂

    1. So far, Zen rooms here in the province have not so good impression for us. I am amazed how beautiful that room is. Hoping to experience one in the metro so I would know how to compare it in the province.
