My Curiosity: The Henry Hotel in Cebu

I’ve always loved boutique hotels oozing with personality. I’m really not into hotels with hundreds of beige, minimalist rooms exuding pure elegance. I guess I’m just not the elegant kind. Hehe!


So, when I saw the photos of The Henry Hotel, I instantly fell in love. I love the polished concrete flooring, the industrial chic look of the lobby, the daring pops of engine red and the “unfinished ceiling” look. I know not many people would appreciate the look but it is what can make one’s hotel stay unique.henry2

I love that wooden wire spool turned into coffee table. I’ve been looking for a spool for quite some time now but haven’t had any luck yet.  Found one in though for P750 each. I’m just not willing to shell out that amount of money. Maybe I should ask hardware stores if they can sell me one or better if they could give me one. But I doubt since you can hardly get anything for free here in Manila. 🙁

Anyway, back to The Henry. I’m not sure how many rooms they have exactly, but from their website, I gathered they have four (4) kinds: big, large, x-large and xx-large.


BIG: 36sqm of individual space with rain shower and handheld showers


LARGE: 42sqm of individual space with rain shower


X-LARGE: 72sqm of individual space; rain shower, double sink, and some rooms with pedestal bathtub


XX-LARGE: 108sqm of individual space; 2 king size beds; 2 bathrooms, one with double sink and pedestal bathtub

I just love how generous they are with room spaces. The x-large and xx-large rooms are even roomier than typical Metro Manila 2-bedroom units. Staying here with a couple of hyper-active toddlers will never be a problem.

Sigh… I just love how visually refreshing this hotel is. (I know, “love” is overused in this post. But I just love it!) I wish someday I would be able to write a personal review about this place. I bet there’s so much DIY ideas I can steal here.

    Hello Michelle, I’m very impressed by your inspiration and passion for life, art, and style. I will visit manila and will spend some time to visit. If you have time, I would like to invite you for a coffee or tea or drinks if you are free. I’m super interested in fabrics. I am working in management in hk but originally from Taiwan. I used to work in Taiwan, Paris, San Francisco, Shanghai and now hk. My boyfriend just moved to manila so I will visit him. Btw, do you know if there is chic shops for fashion in manila? I want to visit and also the fabric stores. I hope I have chance to meet with you.

    Talk soon, phoebe
