Capsule and Loft Type Accommodation in Bataan

Disclaimer: I am not in any way connected with D&A Residences in Balanga, Bataan.

I’ve always wondered how tiny accommodations work as I’m a little claustrophobic. Hence, capsule-type room is definitely a big NO for me. Before we booked for an overnight stay in D&A Residences , I checked on the nearby hotels first—unfortunately, some did not reply and the only one that took their time to reply (Pan Resort) was fully-booked.

As expected, FB’s algorithm suggested D&A. Here are my pros and cons based on my experience.

Pros:

  1. Super near the commercial establishments. We just parked the car then walked through Capitol Drive to eat. The nearest bank is Security Bank. Note: D&A’s location is in Magnolia Street, San Jose, Balanga City, Bataan.
  2. No hassle online reservation- I reserved the room through the online payment channel.
  3. Responsive page admin- they don’t let you wonder whatever happened to your inquiry. They respond right away.
  4. Free wifi
  5. Mid-level security
  6. Friendly staff- Ms. Cindy and Sir Floyd were helpful as well.
  7. With store inside in case you want to buy something like drinks and chips

Cons :

  1. Limited parking space- park at your own risk.
  2. The room has a strong woody-floral scent- if you are allergic to strong perfumes or scent, be aware.
  3. Aircon filter- needs improvement.
  4. Smart signal is weak.

What to expect?
Of course it’s a tiny room! There’s a tiny table, a tiny cabinet, a bed that’s good for 2-3 people, a television and a hair dryer.

We added 1 single mattress for Adi.

There’s a common restroom/powder area and hot & cold shower. This was not a problem because the other guests were also disciplined.

Would I stay again? For an overnight stay, YES.
