Clean hotel with accommodating staff.

clean, accommodating staff, near MOA and Manila Ocean Park,
location: easy access to moa, manila ocean park, manila zoo. hotel is easy to find just inform the taxi driver to drop you at san marcelino st. corner j. nakpil. food: haven't tried their food but they offer complimentary continental breakfast. rooms: good enough for a family of three. amenities: free water only. there were no free toiletries. although it wasn't an issue because we usually bring our own soaps and shampoos when we travel.

not so impressed

nice staffs
First of all, its such a very nice of them to let me check in when I came here at 7am after a night-flight, then I slept like dead until a couple hours later later and realized the hotels was on the very noisy street with vans and Jeepnys run all the time, I also can felt the bed shook at night though my room on the 4th floor. I remember put the sign "make up the room" everyday before going out, but when I was back at night, the room was still messy as when I left, and the sign turned into "do not disturb". It still remain a secret that I couldn't understand. Besides that the staffs were nice and helpful. Food is salty and sour but somebody told me its Filipino style so guess that I cant complain.

Friendly Service, good connected location

The Service was very friendly and helpfull, let me check in without additional cost at 7:30 in the morning and topped this with a free coffee. AC (in Mamila necessary) and hot shower worked. Everything was clean! The hotel ist very good connected to public transport and you can walk easily to Intramuros within half an hour. Breakfast was good
the room was loud starting at 5 in the morning because of the nearby main-traffic-road. the spoken english of the service people incl. reception was generally poor so that understanding was limited. in any other way i was happy there and can recomment it to other travellers. the price i paid was but maximum-line for a hotel of that type in manila and should not be more (i got this reduced price, usually it should cost more than double?!)as with most hotels i had the disadvantage to travel alone, because i mostly (as in this case) i have to pay for the double room (but only can eat one breakfast), thus i pay very much in comparsion to people travelling as a couple or in a group! but actually the room was only good and comfortable for one person!

Small clean rooms - but way too noisy!

Friendly staff and clean rooms
this is a really small hotel. the room was clean and the staff friendly, but that's where the pros end. it is situated on a road that for some reason has been adopted by all the heavy trucks that move through that area. if you are a light sleeper i wouldn't recommend this hotel. apart from the trucks there was incessant barking of dogs through the night. needless to say, i got very little sleep only to drag myself into a shower that offered only cold water. that did it for me! clean and friendly, but overwhelmingly noisy and no hot water. not my idea of a relaxing stay.

Nice place but a bit removed

Super staff
The Orange Nest is charming and the rooms are very comfortable. Unfortunately, the street is very noisy- so I recommend asking for a room in the rear of the building if possible. The complimentary breakfast is quite good and the staff- ask for Hazel - is super attentive and helpful. The hotel is a good 15-20 min walk to the heart of Malate which can be tiresome... and sometimes the taxis will take longer because of traffic. Nevertheless, the hotel is very nice and a good value for the price. I recommend it highly.
Restaurant Tip: Dotoro- Japanese place on Adriatico + Nakpil. Very authentic and good food.

Central location in Manila close to transport

Attentive and helpful staff, clean rooms
I had a wonderful restful 3 nights stay at the Orangenest Hotel. It is a stone throw to most of amenities shopping centres,LRT,other forms of transport and restaurants.
Hotel Feature Tip: The hotel features great food and a great night life every Friday.The most important part of this review is the staffs local knowledge of the place.Anything you ask the Orangenest staff they will give you advice.
