      Horrible experience”

      This is not my first time in this hotel, however before i was quite lucky regarding the room. Unfortunately not this time. The room is like from a trip to past... shabby, old and very used furniture, AC unit very loud and not working well, horrible shower (that's probably the worst, i took a shower with my flip flops on, cause the dirt between the tiles is really disgusting and there was some insect in the bathroom). The latch on the door is missing. Shortly, i have three nights paid but i will leave tomorrow since this is not acceptable. The receptionist Andrea is rude and not willing to help anyhow. In addition, since i've not booked and paid it directly, i wasn't warned that they will ask security deposit (really ridiculous considering the room) and will request from you to sign a full A4 of various requirements and prohibitions like who and when you can invite to your room and what you may take to your room. I didn't sign it of course, that's really humiliating.

      Great location, centrally located right within the heart of the metropolis. The room is spacious and clean, big enough for a family of five. The amenities are great. My kids enjoyed their mini-pool a lot. They also have a play room right next to the mini-pool. Although my 3-year old did not try it because it was already late, I know he would love it. We stayed there for a week with a car rental and was given a parking spot the very next day I requested.

      Great Location”

      Stayed at this hotel in 4 different rooms during our last vacation in Phils. Pros: Location : Excellent location in Ortiga, near Podium and SM Megamall. Shopping malls and convenience stores are walking distance only. Staff: The hotel staff are professional and friendly. They tried to help me find the best room and took note of our requests. During our first night, we couldnt sleep well because of the noisy AC. I requested to transfer us to a different room for our succeeding stays. Cleanliness : The rooms, lifts and lobby are kept clean and tidy. Cons: The property needs some maintenance. Most of the ac units tend to be noisy and smelly. The fourth room we stayed in on our last check is obviously run-down from floor to toilet condition. Please check and smell your bath towels, they need to be properly washed. Overall, the stay was good because of the staff and location.

      We had a great stay ,The only thing i can say is that the queue for check in takes time.I had an upgrade in the room so it was great.I think they should prepare the room ahead of time for online bookings,It's understandble if the customers just walked in they may really have to wait for it tobe prepared but not for those who booked online.

      Poor exhaust system both room and bathroom. Bathroom stinks due to poor exhaust system. Towels are worn out. Good thing i always bring my own when i travel. Room service is not 24hrs til 10pm only. Front desk people are not not approachable specially to visitors of the guest. Room Rate may be low but you wont get ur money's worth because of the bad service and poor quality of rooms and amenities, towels, iron and ironing board. Location is two thumbs up

      Old property geared towards kids/families & guests forced to sign a weird contract”

      Booked this hotel due to its proximity to Megamall. Should have stayed somewhere else (I actually did on my last day). The property is old. The lobby looks refurbished but HVAC system is almost nonexistent in hallways. First few floors blast you with stench of old building whe the elevator opens. My room on the 10th floor became so warm one night that I woke up sweating profusely. It had thin doors so I heard neighbors when they pass by late at night. The wooden parquet floors were uneven and even popped out at certain places. There was a moderate sized fridge, which wa probably the only positive thing in the room. Old school thinking was evident with staff. Checking in early meant a small lecture on "since you asked for an early check in, we decided to give it to you" like it was a huge favor. They have this long list for you to sign, basically saying a lot of "you can't do this...if caught, you'll pay XXX". Quite shocking to be insensitive with their communication

      We stayed at a 1br unit. It was spacious. BUT there was a foul smell (sewage smell) eveytime we come in and when the a/c temp wasn’t too cool. The smell was always present at the kitchen sink area tho. Wonder what that was. we didn’t bother transferring to another unit cos we thought it was just upon entry. We’ve already unpacked when we realized the smell wasnt going away. So we just kept the a/c temp low and avoided the sink area as much as we can.

      Got a room upgrade, staff were very accommodating”

      We got to the hotel hours earlier than the check-in time, but we had to be there early so we can drop off our luggages (which were a lot! we have a seminar the next day and all our necessities were going to be placed inside the room). We had no room yet obviously we had to wait, but since we did have a lot of stuff with us, the staff were kind enough to book us a different room just so we can settle in. The staff were very attentive and professional about it. The room upgrade was bigger and very spacious. Although the air-conditioning won't cool enough even after adjusting, still our stay was pleasant. There's convenience store & restaurant just beside the entrance, 2 malls within range, and another mall at a walking distance. Really convenient. Would definitely recommend!

      Pros: Great Location (between SM Megamall and Robinsons Galleria) Big size of room Cons: Most of the reviews are correct. Very long waiting for check in. If u won't follow up, it would take longer. And staffs are not organized, they are sharing computers. Reception is not organized with their work that no priority with the guests who arrive first. No parking (they have limited parking but never got a vacancy after reservation with the concierge) Old towels, linen, bed sheet, pillow covers. No water heater to boil the water. Old shower and tiles in the bathroom. You can see the rust and black stains. (It's an economical hotel and not a fancy hotel)

      Got the deal at a very affordable rate. Check in and check out was easy and the good thing was you could bring in food to save you the hassle of ordering and going out to get something for your tummy. The room was spacious, you could reheat your food since microwave was available. Whole family esp the kids enjoyed the pool and in addition to that after their swimming they can access the playroom which was also near the pool area. Complaints are as follows, room still needs some renovation, no bidet available in bathroom,linens dont seem fresh since there were visible yellowish stain,you couldn't access balcony and the most inconvenient part was you need to dry yourself after swimming and the changing area was under construction,nowhere to change and just need to really dry yourself and just lucky enough that we were on the 30th floor we were able to use the exit stairs to go back to our room.

      Friendly staff, Good things they upgraded our room to one bedroom premium with 1queen and two single bed without any additional charges. There’s fridge, microwave two burner stove inside and aircon both working properly from room to dining area. Need to improve: Veranda’s water leaking maybe cause of the AC. Shower is broken need to change it and towel it’s look so old it’s really good if you can replace it for new one as well. Pool was great 👍, my niece and nephews they enjoyed to use it. Best Location very near to the malls, restaurant and public transportation. Definitely I will recommend it for a family, groups and solo gatherings.
