        No running water our first night and the room was at the back of reception so extremely noisey. ”

        There was a missing window tile in the bathroom window which meant we could hear every outside noise as if it was in our room. Room was dark and dingy. Our first night there was no running water and when they said it would be fixed in 5 minutes, 3 hours later it still wasn't meaning no shower, no tap and no flush. Despite this reception woman was friendly and it felt safe. The price we payed does not not reflect the standard unfortunately so would not recommend.

        I would Never recommend this accomodation. The room was dirty. Almost everything was quite terrible. No room service (and i dont mean food delivery to room etc.). We stayed for four nights and we had to ask for clean sheets, take out the trash, no cleaning. In our room (standard room) was only cold water, the shower was fixed with a tape and with weak pressure. Breakfasts werent good as well. Only vegetarian option are scrambled eggs. The staff wasnt really helpfull as well. Bad english, no information about tours but they booked us a van to the airport. The only pros is good location.

        Very affordable plus with breakfast. Location is good, 3-5mins walk from the beach. Good staff. ”

        Facilities need improvement. I was taking a half-bath when the water supply suddenly stopped. They said that they are still pumping to get some water and would take hours to supply again the rooms. My boyfriend rushed to the reception to ask if they have water as I'm body was full of soap. Good thing they have to at least clean my myself, but still I'm not satisfied with it as it was just a small pail.

        Ants in my bed. Wore pants to keep them from biting me. Previous review I think said bed bugs but it’s just these tiny mostly harmless ants. No hot water. Stains on sheets. They wanted to move us rooms on our last nite. We took the opportunity to be reimbursed and rent at a different hotel.

        We stayed here for 5 days and we felt like we are just in our home with nurses. They prepare our breakfast, they always have a way to supply what we need even if the request just came in. Location is excellent as well as it is just a 3 min walk to the shore. That gave us at least a short quick walk exercise after all of the sumptuous grilled fish that we ate near our stay. Will definitely stay here again! :) Regards to ate Carissa! :P

        The location is just right next to (and less than a minute's walk from) El Nido's main streets, so it's easy to get to any bar, shop, or restaurant in the town but also quiet enough at night to get a good sleep despite the peak season (I went during Holy Week). The electricity goes on and off but that's a town-wide problem. Breakfast is standard fried food with egg and garlic rice which is good enough if you're not meticulous about your food sources. Air conditioning is quite weak but there's a ceiling fan. My toilet had a bidet, which was a pleasant surprise since my expectations were low. Water pressure is rather weak though. You'll live if you're going to spend most of your time island-hopping or hanging out in a café.

        If you're looking for 'just a place to stay' then try Arkitel. Location is good, at the center of town, very convenient for guests who wish to feel the city life. Staffs were accomodating when they are not busy playing cards or chatting. Breakfast was okay. Overall, it was okay.

        The Downer in our El Nido Break DO NOT CHOOSE THIS PLACE”

        The El Nido experience was a nice one. It was just ruined by the fact that Arkitel Bed and Breakfast did not have a Generator that can support air conditioning which is very important when you need to recharge after a whole day of going around the islands. The whole 72 hours that we were in El Nido, Arkitel also had no air conditioning. You can just imagine our horror trying to have a decent sleep for 3 straight nights!!! When we investigated the inns and hostels beside, near, and around the Arkitel B n B, we discovered that they had generators that support air conditioning and the prices were not significant as compared to Arkitel's. Considering that the owner is an architect (we asked the front desk staff why Arkitel is its name), we could not understand why the owner did not ensure that a generator that can support air conditioning was not in place. Surely, this was not the first time that there was brown out in El Nido. Knowing the designs of the rooms (with practically no ventilation whatsoever), it is a MORTAL SIN not to have an adequate GENERATOR SET!!! Lastly, there was no effort from the owners or their managers to approach us and assuage our feelings of frustration/disappointment up to the last minute of our stay there. They just let their staff absorb the anger and frustrations of the guests who were there before us. One proper thing that they should have done was just at least to send their manager to apologize formally for the situation and offer some things that may mitigate our negative feelings. We have been all over Asia and beyond, but this was the first time in 15 years or so that we encountered an establishment in a Tourist Destination (for that matter) that had no generator set that can support air conditioning (even just for the nighttime/sleep time). Hopefully, this won't happen again to guests after us - that is IF they'll procure a decent generator set!!! The 3 establishments beside, near, and around Amboy Street wher
