Home Square Inn + Dorm: A Cozy Kind of ‘Boxed In’

Somewhere in the heart of Iloilo City, along the roads leading to the metropolis, a four-storey high building painted in light, refreshing hues stands anew and ready to welcome its guests home.


Busy yuppies yearning for a retreat from reality; professionals on a business trip; adventurous backpackers; fancy tourists who can but would rather be practical; friends who want to enjoy a staycation, or college students looking for a place to call home away from home, would certainly go for Home Square Iloilo, both an inn AND a dormitory that aims to be the premier budget inn here in the Philippines’ City of Love.


Home Square Inn + Dorm is easily located in Valeria Street beside the back entrance of Atrium, and across Philippine National Bank. Officially opened on May 29, 2017, its owner shares that the inspiration for this new business venture were the plentiful boutique hotels she and her family would see in Taiwan whenever they’d fly there for a vacation and to see relatives again. Being an enterprising brood, they saw that this new endeavor would be a good move. “Iloilo is developing, thus tourism is booming. A lot of people like and always grab the opportunity to travel,” she shares.

Entering the lobby, you will note the clean and simple interiors. The front desk is adorned by a wall behind it that’s half-covered in glass, and of course, squares. Warm and kind-hearted staff readily accommodate.



When you ascend to the second and third floors, you will find two murals created by Jovy Geamal – one that simply celebrates Home Square, and the other, a map of the city in artsy symbols. (This is gonna be the backdrop of majority of Home Square guests in their Instagram feeds very soon.)IMG_7925


All of the rooms provide the basic amenities like air-conditioning, hot and cold shower, cable TV, free wifi, clothes rack, working desk, and telephone, and reflect practicality and comfort. Room rates are here below for your reference –
