Our trip to Tagaytay wouldn't have been possible had we not found the cheapest place to stay in the area.
Luckily, we found Java Jazz. They only charge 990Phph (if I'm not mistaken. It's closer to 1000Php though) per night for your stay.
The room is big enough for two and it is quite clean. We chose a non-air conditioned room though because: 1.) We were on a tight budget and;
2.) It's Tagatay for crying out loud. There are Pine Trees in there for a good reason, because it's cold.
And our decision was just right. Boy, was I under a blanket the whole evening. They have an electric fan though to keep us cold in the night just in case.
Their bathroom is communal though. It is built inside and have doors opening to each respective room. Two rooms shares one bathroom. But it was unnoticeable because, if my hunch was correct, there was no one occupying on the other side. We got to have the bathroom for ourselves. Lucky us! :)
Aside from it being a lodging house, it is also a Coffee Shop. They serve the famous Tsokolate-Eh! and a lot of coffees and frappes. They also have meals for you to choose from.
Included in the 990Php is a breakfast. How sulit can it be? We had their Longsilog and Hotsilog. And eating outside early in the morning sets the mood just about right!
After that cozy rest and that hearty meal, off we go for our day's adventure!
After our sight seeing, we went back to Java Jazz and had a dose of their frappes before heading back to Manila. We couldn't miss it for the world, being able to taste what they have to offer. And yes, they were delicious.
An additional note though, the rooms are situated right below the coffee shop. And the coffee shop's floor are made of wood. You know where I'm going with this. You can hear the stomping of the customers above in the room. They did put a sign in the shop asking the customers to walk slowly but I guess, you cannot control everyone.
On lighter note, the staffs are very friendly and courteous. They greeted us every time we passed by and aided us in the directions. Thumbs up to that. That right there made this place highly recommended.
