Crowning the heart of the bustling Iloilo City is the region’s tallest building – Injap Tower Hotel, owned by businessman Edgar “Injap” Sia II of the renowned Mang Inasal restaurant chain. The 21 storey high edifice sits conveniently in front of SM Iloilo; there is also a transport terminal here where you can find passenger vans en route to Iloilo City Airport. Also, Plazuela Iloilo, a favorite hang out place, is just a stone’s throw away.
Injap Tower Hotel – Western Visayas’ highest building
I checked in to my Happy Room, the only room type at Injap Tower Hotel in minimalist flair. The wall is painted in muted hue, and furnished with everything you expect to find in a decent hotel such as wall mounted flat panel TV, closet, refrigerator, hot and cold shower, mini pantry and a microwave. There is also a desk which was very useful for me during my stay since I spent my free time writing articles. The free Wi-Fi though has weak signal, it rarely worked on my smart phone but it did great on my notebook, which was what I needed that time.
My Happy Room
I had two beds in my Happy Room – one single and the other queen-size; they were perfect for me because I usually scatter my stuff on the bed. Room rates can get as low as Php 1,250 for two person, additional Php 500 for extra person, which is perfect for couples, group of friends or a family.
Pork medallion and Hainanese chicken, just some of the best dishes at Horizon Cafe
They also have a swimming pool where guest can relax and take a refreshing dip and a spa if you want to have a massage to soothe your muscle aches after a tiring day exploring the City Of Love. But what I like best about Injap Tower Hotel is its restaurant situated on the 21st floor. It offers a gorgeous view of the city skyline and of course great dishes. It can get pretty full though because of its sought-after cuisines, such as Hainanese chicken, Ngo Hiang, pork medallion, deep fried buttered prawns and imperial pork ribs. They also offer Singaporean-inspired drinks such as iced or hot milk tea and Milo Godzilla. For breakfast, my favorite is the delectable chicken congee paired with kaya toast.

Overall, I enjoyed my stay at Injap Tower Hotel, it’s one of those places that is easy to reach but so hard to leave behind.
