Residencia Heneral: The Budget Traveler's Choice

It was a coincidence that I ended up in General Santos City just in time for the Tuna Festival. When I booked my flight last year, I did not know that the dates I will be in General Santos coincided with the Tuna Festival. I looked for a good place to see the festival and is accessible to markets, transportation, and places to visit in the city. As a budget-conscious traveler, I did not want to spend a lot of money on accommodations, because I'll be gone most of the day anyway. I needed a comfortable place to stay and decent Internet connection because I worked online. I found Residencia Heneral and was happy that they had all the things I needed for a budget trip.

The price of the rooms were affordable and just right for wanderers like myself. The Internet connection was only at the reception but it was good enough for what I needed. I was able to work online, upload pictures, and update my social media sites.

Here are the prices of the rooms:

Airconditioned rooms:

Suite Room: w/ hot & cold shower and tv - P700
Standard Room: w/ hot & cold shower and tv - P650
Single: Good for 2 persons - P400

Non-aircon rooms:

w/ cr - P350
Standard: P300

*All the rooms are good for 2 persons.

Map to Residencia Heneral
Residencia Heneral is near many eateries, convenience stores, restaurants, bars, and fast food chains that would lessen the transportation expenses of budget travelers like myself. The accommodations are basic, but it was enough for a budget traveler like me. It is also just a 10 minute walk away from Plaza Heneral and a 15 minute walk away from the Oval Plaza where the Tuna Festival was held.

I got to relax in Plaza Heneral with the locals as I waited for the festivities.

Residencia Heneral is at a perfect location to see the Tuna Festival. The hotel is situated along Pioneer Avenue. The parade's route included Pioneer Avenue, and then it headed towards the Oval Plaza. If you want to catch next year's Tuna Festival and do not want to spend a lot on accommodations, Residencia Heneral is the place to stay in.
