Bacolod Hotel: Affordable and Homey Accommodations at Saltimboca Tourist Inn

If you are a budget traveler, whether with your family or for a business trip, you would mostly likely prefer accommodations that are clean, comfortable, and secure, yet easy on the pocket or the company’s budget. And you would like it to be near the city’s activity centers so that you can do your business or fulfill your plans without having to travel to and from the hotel for long periods. Getting stuck in traffic is such a waste of time, especially if you are staying in the place for just a short time.

Here in Bacolod City, you could get all those and more at Saltimboca Tourist Inn, which is located at 15th-Lacson Streets–in the middle of all the action in the city.

Saltimboca Tourist Inn Amenities
Salimboca Tourist Inn has many different rooms for different budgets and needs. They have rooms with a single bed and a fan as well as big air conditioned rooms for the whole family, complete with a dining and living room. They have a restaurant that serves delicious meals, which you can partake inside the restaurant or in their darling of a well-kept garden. Except for non aircon rooms, all room accommodations come with a breakfast for two. For single air con rooms, the guest is entitled to one meal (naturally).

If you are from neighboring cities here in Negros Occidental or Negros Oriental with your own vehicle and you need to spend the night in Bacolod, you would appreciate that Saltimboca Tourist Inn has ample parking space within its gated compound. They also have a security guard 24 hours a day so your vehicle is safe.

The swimming pool. Yes, there are rooms beside the pool.

Additionally, they have a nice pool for both kids and adults that closes at 10pm.

And what many people do not know is that, Saltimboca has a big function room behind their hotel that can seat up to 200 guests in a dinner setting.

A Review About Saltimboca Tourist Inn
Saltimboca is not a new hotel. It has been around for many years but the owners keep  updating the place to give the best accommodations possible to their guests.

What I like best about Saltimboca is that the place has so many well-kept gardens all around. It is such a refreshing sight in the middle of the city and well, it is cool in the compound because of the many plants around that give off oxygen. I love plants so I love it here! Going around the property, you would find many pocket gardens and fountains and it is obvious that they have a full-time gardener taking care of the plants. It is so relaxing at Saltimboca Tourist Inn. After a long day, it is nice to just unwind on the benches and chairs scattered around their many gardens and enjoy a drink.

From the lobby, this is the hallway that leads guests to the rooms around the property. Yes, Saltimboca is not a single building but many different buildings around the gardens.

The entire property has many well-tended pocket gardens like these.

Saltimboca is also a family-owned inn with long-term employees on the helm. They are very helpful and friendly.
