Alice in Wonderland Hotel (Below 100 USD)

May 18, 2011

Overview:

One of the cheapest Beach Front hotels in Boracay, Alice in Wonderland is a 3-storey hotel that offers air conditioned rooms for only 60 to 70 USD per night.

I have stayed at this hotel for about 3 to 4 times (as I am a frequent visitor of Boracay). You may not be able to see the beach from your window or balcony, but it is just about 30 steps away. That’s good enough for my 6o bucks.  Good value for the money.

Location:

Station 2, Beach Front. Right across the Boracay Police Station; To The left is La Carmela de Boracay. From the port, ask the trike driver to drop you off Boracay Tropics hotel. Then walk down to the beach front and you will find the Police Station, right across the street is Alice hotel.

Alice in Wonderland is also surrounded by restaurants (like the Spanish Restaurant beside the Police Station, all-you-can-eat places, Mongolian Buffet places, etc). If you don’t feel like eating out, there’s a convenience store right across the street from the hotel.

Important Tips:

  • Make sure you ask for more towels and/or bed linens.
  • Set the airconditioner at a higher temperature before bedtime so you wont get too cold. They don’t give too many linens (if you need more, just call downstairs at the reception area).
  • Remind them at the reception that you want a working water heater (I just usually ask this at every hotel that I stay at :) …
  • If you are scared of dogs, then this is not a place for you to stay at. They have 2 friendly Golden Retrievers (who sleep all the time and really don’t mind people) at the lobby.
