Nothing is more satisfying than being excited when we first open the door of our well made rooms during staycations.
We were eyeing a few establishments in Pasig City and for me to be coming from San Pedro, Laguna, a whole day won’t be enough for me to be combing said itinerary. You wouldn’t believe, it even includes Divisoria. Ahaha
So, finally, after the holidays, we were able to book a weekend into this nice and looks really clean (with its’ black & white Italian theme) 3 star hotel – Privato.
It is less than 10 minutes from Shaw, Edsa blvd. Of course, if without the traffic. Jen and I wanted to do staycations as much as we want to though due to our conflicting schedules. We can only do them every once in a while.
As we intend to visit the following:
- Shake Shack
- Happy Lemon
- Panda Express
- Pottery Barn
- Cocina Peruvia
- Van Gogh is Bipolar
- Cafe Sanso
- Lia’s Cakes in Season
And I wasn’t kidding, Divisoria is included. Ahaha
As a 3 star hotel, Privato is equipped with meeting our typical expectations, except for the immaculate white robes I saw from their Instagram account. Or maybe Deluxe Double Queens doesn’t include the robes?
Amenities includes complimentary WI-FI, LCD Television with cable programs ( we were boob tube freaks for a day), watching movie marathons from HBO and Fox. =)
Also a safety box, a mini refrigerator with complimentary bottled waters daily, hair dryer, an electric kettle, and coffee and tea with choices of white or brown sugar.
I’m happy that there is a jar of infused water in the lobby, though only available until 9:00 pm.
It has 177 rooms, 3 Ballrooms, 2 Conference Rooms, a spa, (which is just beside our room at 8th floor), Rooftop Pool & Gym, and a Roof Deck Lounge.

There are 3 restaurants (Piazza Privato, Verona Roof deck and Privato Cafe. They have ex-deals with several establishments better known as Key to the City. Had we were informed about this, we might probably try one of these and enjoyed exclusive discounts. I heard Tittos with good reviews.
The nearest go to place from this hotel is Kapitolyo and Estancia mall. Though most of those places we have planned to visit are at Mega mall and Podium.
The nearest go to place from this hotel is Estancia mall and Kapitolyo which is like a Food Mecca in Pasig, its’ residents took it further by establishing a neighborhood of remarkable food spots. Though most of those places we have planned to visit are at Mega mall and Podium.
There are actually 3 locations, the other 2 is in Quezon City, and the recently opened one is in Makati. Jen and I were in sync with what we wanted our weekend be like and were so excited that finally we were able to do it once more.
This staycation seemed too fun not to be shared. A very relaxed weekend indeed. Looking forward to our next. =)
