About Hotel 1925

Who It’s For: Filipinos are among the most industrious, determined people. Many have worked their way from the bottom and up to the top of the stairs of success. Such is the story of Rufino “Pinong” Mojares, a Lipa, Batangas native, who survived the Japanese occupation and triumphed against tuberculosis at a time when there were no antibiotics for the disease yet.

As a tribute to the boy who worked multiple jobs -- from selling appliances and motorcycles to trading second-hand tires -- in order to make ends meet for him and his family, Hotel 1925 was born. The charming boutique hotel is built on the same location of the warehouse where Pinong established and grew his business. Decorated with bespoke wooden furniture, antique 1920s cabinetry from the family’s own collection, and beautiful Machuca flooring, Hotel 1925 is a simple yet luxurious retreat for the whole family.

Family Vacations:. Pinong worked hard not just for himself but also for the welfare of his family. That’s why many families will find Hotel 1925 an ideal location for an indulgent vacation.
