Seda Capitol Central (Seda Hotel Bacolod)

Traveling with the family has its own requirements, especially if you have young kids. You want a hotel that is clean, secure, convenient, accessible, and of course, easy on the budget. One of the Bacolod hotels that fit these criteria is Seda Capitol Central (Seda Hotel Bacolod).

Seda Capitol Central Location 

When you travel with kids, you look for the accommodation with the most central location.  Among Bacolod hotels, I think one that has the best location is Seda Capitol Central (Seda Hotel Bacolod). We had an overnight stay here with our little family.

From its name, you will know that it is located in central Bacolod City. It is along Lacson Street, just across the capitol lagoon, which is a favorite hangout of Bacolod residents.

Furthermore, it is just a walking distance away from among the best homegrown Bacolod restaurants. There are also lots of fast food chains around the area and just a few kilometers away from the major malls of the city.

Seda Hotel Bacolod is about a 20-minute drive away from the Bacolod-Silay International Airport. Hotel shuttle service is offered at P700 per vehicle per trip.

Lobby | Common Area

The courtyard of Seda Capitol Central is not very expansive or fancy. They just made the most of the space. There is an island of plants in front of the entrance in order for cars to make a turn after dropping passengers at the main door.

The spacious lobby with an interesting shape.

The lobby though, has quite some room and is kind of separated from the reception area. The area in front of the receptionist is quite spacious, so there would still be some room to move around even if a bus load of tourists are unloaded at the same time.

However, you will have to pass by the receptionist before you reach the elevators. So if there lots of guests checking in you, you will just have to go around the people.

Our family at the lobby. It was late at night when we had this picture so there was nobody else around.

Seda Bacolod Hotel used predominantly muted colors. From the darker earth tones on the exterior to lighter complementing nude colors inside, the hotel exudes a quiet and minimalist elegance. Even the wall frames are black and white or sepia photos, consisting mainly of close up shots of Bacolod tourist destinations or Negrense handicrafts.

Room | Bathroom | Toiletries

Our family of four, two grown ups and two young kids ages 9 and 5, stayed in the deluxe room of Seda Capitol Cental. The exact floor area is 25 sq. meters, which was ample. It was not very big, but not cramped at all. It had space for two twin beds, a bedside table, desk, office chair, luggage rack, mini bar with refrigerator, and an ample closet.

Our deluxe bedroom with two double beds.

A bed is very important for me because of my back problems, and thankfully, Seda used a good quality mattress. The kids spent a lot of time on the bed, lying down while watching TV and playing with their toys. Yep, we had to bring toys. They are kids and they need the diversion.

The mini bar was stacked, but consummables are charged separately. There is free coffee, tea, and bottled water, compliments of the hotel. And oh, you know what their welcome gift is? A cute box of truffles plus a personal note from the hotel manager! I love it!

Our welcome gift! Isn’t that sweet? Literally! haha

The bathroom is also well lighted and roomy. The toiletries called Sasy n Savy are of good quality and smell so good. The kids were especially raving about the minty shampoo with conditioner. Though for Dindin’s long fine hair, we needed to use a separate hair conditioner. And of course, she had to use her Cacai Detangler brush, as always.

Our toiletries. They smell so good!

Room Facilities

What’s provided when we went inside the room are the toiletries, a bath robe, bath towels, and two really comfortable slippers. There’s the standard electric kettle and hair dryer. The towels and robe may be brought to the pool area if you are going swimming, but you have to bring them back to room for accounting. You may request for another robe or other things, like an iron, from the housekeeping.

I especially liked the complimentary bedroom slippers. They are not the throw-away types. I had to bring them home (though used at the hotel), because they are reusable.

By the way, our room was on the side facing the South Capitol Road. When we parted the curtains, we had a good view of the Capitol Lagoon and Park.

There are three elevators serving the building. We didn’t experience waiting for our turn. 😀

The pool is very important for us because the kids really love to spend time swimming. Aside from being occasional unicorns, they transform into mermaids when they hit the water.

During the day, the roofdeck is a nice place for the little kids to hang around in and expend their energy. Our kids especially enjoyed the view.

It is like a must that we make time for swimming whenever the family is billeted in a hotel with a pool. The Seda swimming pool is a no-nonsense rectangular pool that is divided into two areas. The small part is the kiddie pool, which is just two-feet deep. The big pool is four feet deep. You cannot dive in but you can certainly do some laps.

Swimming for Kids

Our kids really enjoy swimming. That is why we always look for a hotel with a pool. And then we spare some time for them to swim. That is exactly what we did upon checking in during Shane’s 5th birthday. After we stashed our stuff in the room, we immediately went swimming.

Seda Capitol Central - Seda Hotel Bacolod - Bacolod hotels - Seda hotel breakfast buffet - Bacolod City - deluxe room - staycation - family travel - travel blogger - Bacolod mommy blogger
Despite storms threatening the month of August in the Philippines, we were blessed with a two-day hiatus while we were having our staycation. So the kids got to enjoy.

For an overnight stay, we try to spare at least an hour each day for the two-day stay just so they have time at the pool.

The kids owned the pool. This was during Shane’s 5th birthday.

When they are not swimming, the kids need to play some more. That is why toys are in order.

Staff

Seda Capitol Central is a nice and modern hotel. It may not be opulent, but it is simple, elegant, and very comfortable. But one thing that really makes them notable is their staff. They have very warm and accommodating personnel, from the front office, to the concierge, waiters, pool attendants, and pretty much every one we have encountered. This includes their housekeeping. They are very helpful, too.

One of the best things at Seda Capitol Central is the staff. They are warm and very professional.

Even the waiters who were so busy scurrying for the breakfast menu were polite and pleasant. While this is a blog collaboration, we did not get preferential treatment because it’s not like everyone at the hotel knows I am there. It’s not like a media or bloggers’ day. But still, their staff are well-trained and very hospitable.

I thoroughly enjoyed working inside our room. The chair was comfortable and the internet connection speed was so fast. Taking a break with my ginger tea.

Their internet is soooo fast. If it was not a staycation for us, I would have kept working just to take advantage of the fast connection. When I went home, I wanted to cry because I realized how slow my connection is. boohoohoo 🙁

Food | Seda Breakfast Buffet

The breakfast buffet at Seda Capitol Central is free for hotel guests (up to two adults per room). Regular price is P699 per person. Children six years old and below are free. Meanwhile, children from 7 to 12 years old are charged half.

Pinoy favorite breakfast dishes — longganisa, tocino, scrambled eggs, Spanish sardines, and fried rice.

Misto Restaurant serves breakfast and afternoon snacks buffet. It’s located at the ground floor of Seda Capitol Central.

There is enough variety of food served for breakfast at the Misto Restaurant. I think there were more than 30 varieties there. We enjoyed the Filipino breakfast of fried rice and several kinds of cured meats like longganisa, tocino, and many others. Except for scrambled eggs, the rest, however, would have to be ordered from the waiter. They do not not have an omelet station as part of the buffet table.

Salad bar and native delicacies.

Additionally, they have salads, breads, cereals, as well as local fare, or what we call sud-an, like adobo, humba, laswa (vegetable stew), and the like. Some people I talked to do not like these Pinoy dishes section, saying that they seem to be out of place. May take is that, you will never know what cravings people have and so these dishes add to the variety. You can always just choose what you like.

Some PInoy dishes at the Seda Capitol Central buffet included sauteed ampalaya with egg, humba, and even laswa (Ilonggo vegetable soup).

We have attended several functions at Seda Hotel Bacolod and the food has been pretty good. However, I cannot comment about their ala carte meals at the restaurant as we have not dined there in this set up.

  1. Seda Capitol Central looks like a truly wonderful place for the family to stay! I love the fact that the guests can make use of the gym, as I’ve become obsessed with regular exercising. I also like the fact that kids can find something for themselves in that hotel, too. 🙂 Nice review of Seda.

  2. Hmmm.. the rooms do look nice and comfy at Seda Hotel Bacolod, likewise there are pools for the whole family for staycation. Php699 for buffet breakfast looks like not worth with limited choices of food and no omelette station?

    1. There’s no omelet station but you can order the eggs that you like and they can prepare it for you. I think it’s because of the spatial constraint. There is scrambled eggs on the buffet table though.

  3. Wow! Seda Capitol Central looks like a great place to stay during your trip. Breakfast included is really nice to have too. I appreciate you including the prices and pictures of everything. It makes the review so much more personal.

  4. Seda Capitol Central looks like a good place to go with kids. The last hotel I stayed in with my 2-year-old was so disappointing in spite of being a five-star hotel. So, I can imagine how a good hotel increases the fun of the holiday by manifold. Great hotel review of Seda–so detailed! 😀

  5. Seda Capitol Central looks wonderful. I always like in bed amenities especially the slipper, I always take one with me for home. Many hotels don’t have exercise room but knowing that this one has makes me feel good. As I might need someday. Food is very less, if I am right not much choices I can see? Or am I wrong somewhere, please let me know.

  6. The welcome gift is really a very nice gesture and the truffles look so elegantly sitting in the little box! The toiletries too look so complete! I think I would love this hotel with no doubt! Just look at the buffet breakfast spread at Seda Capitol Central! Amazing variety and nice ambience.

  7. Seda Capitol Central looks like a really nice hotel. Your younger daughter is such a poser! Thank you for the very thorough review of this hotel. Appreciate it 😀

    1. Hahaha Indeed she is. Shane is such a character. And she thoroughly loves Seda Hotel Bacolod. She always screams Seda Hotel whenever we pass by the hotel. haha

  8. I am impressed by this hotel! I would love to stay here one day. That food looks tasty. Plus my kids would be all about that pool. Seda Capitol Central has everything that it takes for a good family hotel. Your review is so enticing!

  9. I really love this place. I wish I would stay here one day. I am surprised with the room facilities and the no-nonsense toilet. Also loving the fact that Seda Capitol Central is so nice and clean and looks like it smells good. hehe

  10. This place (Seda Capitol Central) is looking amazing. Love the interior of the hotel. Looks like this place have the facilities. Will definitely want to stay in this hotel. You mentioned each and everything now mind is all clear. Thanks for sharing the review and your experience during your trip.

  11. The hotel looks like it has so many amenities that I would love. So great that the whole family was able to stay comfortably at Seda Capitol Central.

  12. Oh, I love how amazing and cozy this hotel looks. I booked a flight for Bacolod next year. I’ll be sure to consider staying at Seda Capitol Central hotel.

  13. This SEDA Bacolod hotel looks nice and family-friendly! Very impressive based on your review. BTW, is SEDA also a pet-friendly hotel?

    1. Oh, I have not asked about pets! But judging from the fact that I have never seen pets there for the many times I have visited Seda Capitol Central, then maybe no. Or maybe Bacolod hotels just don’t allow pets at all?

  14. Omg that place looks so lux, and looks like you were treated like a VIP which is a great thing. I totally loved the way you reviewed this hotel which is really helpful . Thanks for this nice post about Seda Capitol Central. 😀

  15. Seda Capitol Central is a very nice hotel to stay. We enjoyed our stay here during our trips to Mambukal, The Ruins, Campuestohan and Balay Negrense. The staff were very nice. EXCEPT of course for Seda Hotel in iloilo, their hotel manager Joseph Del Rosario and the Front Office Manager Carlos Lavares were so discriminating. Through the latter, the H.M instructed the hotel staff not to talk and stay away from me as a regular guest a 1 meter apart. So RUDE, not hospitable enough. Is this really a hotel? Unlike Marriott Hotel, they even told me okay sir go ahead you can communicate with out staff and I felt relieved when I heard it during my visit at Marriott. What is so wrong about being friendly to the hotel staff? I don’t really understand that hotel manager of Seda Hotel Iloilo. I think he needs a thorough mental check-up. I have never been treated so unfairly by other hotels even when I travel abroad BUT this one? Is so shocking.
