Hotel Internet Rates

Just got back from an overnight (but extended) stay at the Edsa Shangri-La Plaza Hotel. Nice place overall, with very helpful staff.

Mrs. ‘toy was going to do a bit of work (which she eventually failed to actually do) and so I asked Hotel Reception if the room came with free internet access – I actually found the ethernet cable while talking on the phone (it was conveniently on the desk) but hesitated to connect it immediately to the computer lest we be charged with some outrageous rate. Reception confirmed that our rates did not include internet and so we’d be charged Php200 for an hour’s use or Php600 for 24 hours’ use. Expensive, but not really that bad although I can’t really comment on the speed or anything else. Maybe next time…
