            Nice place to stay”

            Pros: The place is near the ATV site. The staff are very friendly. They let us change room twice because of AC noise with out extra charge. Breakfast is also good. Parking can be reserved. Cons: If you dont have a car it will be difficult for you to travel around. No place near to eat except at the hotel, otherwise you can travel by jeep or tricycle to go the distance like SM, Ayala mall.

            Clean. Accommodating staff. Comfortable.”

            I would recommend this hotel to anyone going to Albay. Rates are relatively cheap considering their top notch service and clean rooms. Staff are very accommodating, too. We can conveniently order food to our room. My only concern is the location, which is so far from the city center and quite difficult to commute to (or I might just be someone who hates commuting esp at night). Other than that FJ manila is a haven for travellers. awesome food, too!

            Only 9 minutes away from the airport. Grab is not available in Legaspi but can easily find a taxi outside the airport for FJ Manila Hotel for only P200. Hotel is walking distance to Daraga Church. They provide different set of tours. Guest have 20% discount to Ellis ATV tours. Room is clean & just the right size for us. Soap, shampoo, toothbrush & toothpaste are provided. Staff are nice & attentive to your needs. We booked a taxi via the hotel to go to the airport. It is cheaper this way than booking their airport shuttle.

            VERY NICE !”

            FJ Manila Hotel is warm because of the owner/s personalized approach to guest/s either you're a local or foreign guest/s . He talk to his guest/s and explain the food they served and one will be delighted of the taste that you can only ask for more! The room is spacious , the bed is soft , aircon is very cold, the bathroom is clean and the shower is great! They offer tours at reasonable price. Transportaion is readily available outside of hotel. WIFI is free. But sad to say there is no elevator so better stay on the first floor.

            Hidden gem!”

            The location is about 100 meters from where the bus from Pasay dropped us off. They allowed an early check in with no issues. The room was on the third floor. Small, but comfortable. (I had a standard size ) . CR had plenty of hot water and was clean, albeit small. Ate two meals in the 1st floor restaurant and found them to be just fine. There is a laundromat (Snow White) down the hill and around the corner (5-7 min walk). McDonald’s/Jollibee close too and the market area surrounds them. The hotel offers a discounted tour with a local company of Mt Mayon. Two of us (350lbs total weight) used a 150 cc ATV with no problems. It was just us and the tour guide; he was very knowledgeable about parts of history and sites of the area and used his acrobatic talents to use my GoPro for shots of driving up to the volcano. It’s a short 10 min ride to the airport via trike and short taxi ride to Legazpi (the hotel is in Daraga). I’ll be back since southward is some good whale shark dives!

            Superb Customer Service”

            We stayed here last October 2018. Overall rating would be 10/5 :) Here's why, 1. We booked a different date in agoda yet they reconsidered our reservation without additional charges. 2. We arrived very early (6am) and let us check in the hotel room so we can freshen up. 3. We got a free upgrade from a standard room to superior room coz of room availability without extra charge. 4. They had discounted free tours that we availed on the spot after we arrived in ths hotel (6am) with shuttle service included. 5. They have a restaurant with good food and good coffee. Try their FJ burger. 6. The CR was clean and have good heaters. 7. Location was great. Near Daraga Church and accessible to many places and near the market. 8. They have a rooftop if you like stargazing at night and a clear view of mayon early in the morning. 9. Their staffs are very friendly and very approachable 10. Lastly, we were late during check out time (12pm) we arrived 1pm yet they allowed us to shower and have a late check out with additional charges. :) Definitely will come back :)

            It started bad and turned out ok.”

            We requested a shuttle to pick us up from the airport and it was a no show. We had to call twice and wait an hour before one finally arrived. When we arrived the room was very small and felt dirty. The one light in the bathroom was so dim it might as well not have been there. The breakfast was ok and coffee was good when it was available. One of the receptionists booked us the wrong atv for our tour and we had to call while at the tour to straighten it up. The good things i can say is the driver was very friendly and went out of his way to accommodate our needs. Even picking up our laundry on his own time. Also the view of Mt. Mayon was really great from their roof. Especially in the morning.

            To all the great staff of FJ Manila Hotel, thank you very much and keep up the good work! They are very friendly, honest, and accommodating. They even went the extra mile of sending via courier the valuables we left at the hotel. Location is great, very approximate to all tourist spots. Their rooftop provides an excellent view of Mayon. Family room is very spacious.

            Performs well above expectations”

            The staff members are very friendly and accommodating. The rooms are as advertised and triple sharing rooms where there are three single beds are also available. WiFi performs admirably well considering how slow the internet normally is in the Philippines. The coffee in particular really helps you get that kick to start your day right. There are however a few relatively minor concerns: 1) There are no elevators in the building, so your luggage will have to be carried up the stairs. The staff are more than willing to help you out on this anyhow. 2) The beds have wheels. I didn't get to explore how to lock them in place, but the bed really can move fore and aft as you try to get on it or out of it. It's not much of a problem as you sleep, though. 3) TV images are quite grainy, but still watchable. Anyhow, if you're on a business trip, I doubt you'd have the time or energy to watch TV anyway. At any rate, all things considered, the hotel performs well above expectations.

            The staff (from reception, security guards, concierge/cleaners), I mean everyone we have encountered are extremely friendly, helpful and polite. The room is clean and we really enjoyed our overnight stay. If I'll stay longer in Albay, I'll consider this place as it just in the highway and can easily hail a jeepney either going to Daraga, Albay, Legazpi or even to Cagsawa Ruins & Sumlang Lake. Very accessible.

            Customer Service is Superb”

            Location is along the highway, so even if you do not have private transportation, you can easily find the establishment. I am very impressed with the Customer Service from the front desk officers to the kitchen and maintenance staff. All are very friendly, approachable and accommodating. Will definitely have this as one of my main options for lodging when I go back to Legazpi.

            Great hotel to stay when in road trip from Visayas to Manila. It's along the highway going to Manila which makes it very easy to find. According to the staff, Mayon Volcano is near and can be seen while at the roof top. Breakfast with Mayon view can be arranged. It was just unfortunate that the weather did not cooperate while we're there. Maybe we need to come back and we will definitely stay again at this hotel.

            The location of the hotel is very strategic. What we love most is the rooftop of the hotel where we see the Mayon Volcanoe very clearly. The rooftop is also relaxing and homey. The owners of the hotel are very friendly and accommodating. We would definitely recommend this hotel.
