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.


  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.
