B Hotel: A Hip and Stylish Boutique Hotel in Quezon City

Industrial, contemporary, hip, spacious... just some of the words that popped up as soon as we entered B Hotel Quezon City. We don't frequent this side of town so this modern structure in the middle of the bustling Scout area was a welcome surprise for locals like me. It's like a different world once you enter the hotel. My family enjoyed a laid back staycation last weekend, courtesy of B Hotel, so check out these eye candy and take this virtual tour of the newest boutique hotel north of the metro.

B Hotel Quezon City is the newest baby of The Bellevue hotel group, with it's first branch located in Alabang. With eleven floors and over 100 guest rooms, B Hotel QC offers value-for-money four-star accommodations, catering to the business traveler, companies, as well as families and groups that simply want to unwind and not leave the QC area.

What makes B Hotel different is it's ultra modern industrial design, the cool ambience -- in Tagalog, maaliwalas, and stylish interiors. The design elements and minimalist furniture pieces make every spot and corner picture-perfect -- or what millennials may call "Instragrammable".

We skipped the usual halloween weekend revelry and checked-in last Friday. The hotel still has minor construction going on. They are currently re-building the ramp leading to the main drop-off point by the lobby, finishing the function rooms and pool side facilities as well.

I learned that the hotel is still on soft opening, only two months in operation, and according to the front desk officer, they will have their formal launch in December. I guess this feature is sort of a sneak peek na rin for everyone since bagong bago pa ang B Hotel. =)

Check out the main lobby and cafe, with it's high ceiling, mood lighting, floor-to-ceiling glass walls and windows, iconic chairs, and splashes of bold colors against clean lines and polished concrete. The outdoor seating area by the lobby's balcony (right side of photo above) is the designated smoking area which overlooks Scout Rallos.

You surely won't miss these eye-catching wall accents by the elevator. From the time you step inside the elevator until you reach your floor, the sleek industrial aesthetic remains consistent. This is a complete departure from the usually warm, wood-paneled, elegantly styled interiors of traditional hotels that we're used to seeing, which J prefers. The hip vibe and ambiance here is actually quite refreshing, I like it.

B Hotel QC currently offers Superior Twin Room and One Bedroom Suite.

We were initially accommodated at this Superior Twin Room, which was nice and comfy. I was expecting two queen beds, but the twin is ideally for two only. I requested if we can be transferred to a room with a king, plus extra bed. Me and kids on the bed, then J on an extra single bed -- that's our usual sleeping arrangement whenever we stay in hotels, at the very least, unless they have two queens or a family suite.

Thankfully, the hotel was kind enough to accommodate our request and the staff prepared another room for us. Later in the afternoon, we moved down from the 7th to the 6th floor with the same room layout, but with the beds joined together. It was perfect for the boy, the girl, and myself to sleep in.

Since they still don't have extra beds available, they asked if a mattress would suffice.  I thought that was even better since they have big thick mattresses! =) We're fine with the mattress set on the floor for J. Extra pillows and towels were also requested since all the rooms are set for two. Here's the new set-up.

The guest rooms are equipped with basic amenities for a comfortable stay:
  • Minibar
  • LED cable TV
  • Free high-speed internet access, hotel-wide
  • In-room safe
  • Writing desk
  • Cabinet with hangers
  • Washbasin and mirror set in the room - with soap and toothbrush set for two
  • Glass-enclosed toilet and bath -- roller blinds can be pulled down for privacy
    • Two shower heads, with soap and shampoo; toilet has a bidet
  • Room slippers for two

One of the distinct features of B Hotel is it's use of iconic chairs. I'm guessing they are replicas of the designer chairs and you can find them all around the hotel.

I'm not sure about the names of these chairs, but they look designer to me. =) That black one was surprisingly very comfy to sit on!

While the new room was being prepared, J and I went to the Lobby Cafe to look around. He ordered coffee, and cheese pizza for the kids. More designer chairs spotted at the lobby...

Harry Bertoia chairs at the coffee shop...we have a similar pair at home. =)

Spot the Le Corbusier sofa, Mies Van der Rohe's Barcelona and Hans Jacobsen's Egg chairs

Let's move on to the gastronomic delights...

Snacks while waiting for room transfer -- J and I got one slice each at the cafe before we brought this up to the room. This Quatro Formaggi pizza was wiped out even if the kids said the cheese was stinky, hahaha! Blame it on the gorgonzola. =)

After we got settled in the new room and showered, we headed down to the Lobby Cafe for dinner.

For starters, my girl had this creamy Mushroom Soup while I had this more flavorful Tomato Cream SoupSarap with the break stick! 

The boy went straight for The B-Burger, served with fries and coleslaw. Lettuce, tomatoes, onions, pickles were removed. He wanted it plain with just cheese, no frills, so that's what he got.

The girl was craving for Pancit canton so we ordered one for sharing. We love the generous serving of shrimps with the noodles.

J devoured his Grilled King Prawns with a side of mashed potatoes, while I had this deliciously tender specialty -- Beef with Black Pepper Sauce. With rice siyempre! Yum-yum!!!

We were all full from the meal that I regret not leaving room for dessert! I would have wanted to try their Creme Brulee or Choco Lava Cake sana. The food and service were pretty good. They just need to add a few more food attendants to be more visible to dining guests.

For breakfast, we didn't see a buffet spread when we went down around 9 am. There was just a cereal station, fruit platter, congee station, coffee and juice corner.  

We were offered the menu for the a'la carte breakfast meals instead. The kids were happy to have their usual Pancakes, which were fluffy and huge, by the way. J got toast and Omelette, while I went for the Beef Tapa with garlic rice and egg.

After our morning meal, the family went back to the room while I toured the rest of the hotel. The kids changed their mind about swimming and opted to just laze around and play in the room. Buti nalang they didn't want to swim na coz the pool was undergoing maintenance pala so guests can't swim din.

The infinity pool is 4ft. deep only and hotel is still having improvements done around the area.

"B Hotel Quezon City is more than just comfortable ambiences and sleep-inducing rooms.
You can also conduct business meetings, spend chill afternoons, and make dull nights into something more colorful."

More amenities at B Hotel QC:
  • Business center
  • Ballroom and function rooms
  • Lobby Cafe
  • Mezzanine Bar
  • Wi-Fi in public areas
  • Room service
  • Car park
  • Gym
  • Salon by Jing Monis (opening soon by the pool side)
This is the coziest place I found at the hotel -- the Mezzanine Bar, with warm tones, leather arm chairs and wood flooring. Perfect place to hang out and have drinks.

At the opposite end of the lobby from the bar is this meeting room, right above the cake and coffee shop. It has a long conference table, projector, and a glass wall which allows you to view the whole lobby from the room. It's a nice venue to hold business meetings and intimate presentations.

This was a different kind of halloween weekend retreat for my family and staying at B Hotel QC was a delight. Hope you liked the "tour" as much as I enjoyed sharing this with you.
