    Nice stay”

    Accommodating staff specially Mr. Denver; fast internet; central location; clean pool free to use by maximum 2 guests per room. Very satisfied client here. Thank you. Recommendations: additional pillow for the child; bottled water should be 1 per paying guest (I paid for a triple room but hotel only provided 2 bottled water and 2 cups). Just the same, hotel is recommendable to friends.

    PROS: Near to Robinsons Place Mall, LRT CONS: Bathroom was filthy, phones were not working, Lots of.people waiting for.the elevators (only 3 were.working, 1 dysfunctional),.reception staff not friendly and accomodating. (I inquired days before if I could .check in early and.was.told.that ill get an update.But NO calls so I called up again the night before and they are still not sure.) Lesson learned: Inquire before.you.make that payment !. Too bad on my part., I already booked and.paid 3 rooms in a rush!

    Excellent Staff”

    although the first room given to us has a broken door lock and it eats almost the half of our first day, staffs are all helpful and accommodating. they transfer us in another room and assisted us. the new room may not have the best view for fireworks which i requested upon booking, the given room is more complete when it comes to amenities than the first room booked to us. salute to the staff that make way just to do everything to complement in the failure of the first room provided to us.

    Place is accessible and near the mall. Price is also cheap. Clean rooms and bathroom. Friendly staff. The only downside is the long wait times on their elevators. Their curtain holder also was broken when we tried to open the curtains on the balcony. Cable reception not working on the tv but wifi internet was fast which was a nice alternative.

    Stay was OK”

    We like staying here in Birch Tower but this is the first time we booked through Hotel 168 because the price was almost 500 php lower than Grand Regency when did the booking (We always book with Grand Regency when staying here). The layout of the room is basically the same. However, the TV was smaller, and I guess there were fewer cable channels. The bed a little bit lower and the pillows were too soft for me (I prefer a plumped up pillow, which is the case with Grand Regency's) . There was no hair dryer and full body mirror inside the room. Inside the shower there was no soap and shampoo holder, so I had to get out of the shower area and put them back on the sink after using which wets the rest of the bathroom floor. Just a little difference but still, I had a good night sleep. Will stay again.

    The worst I experienced”

    The accomodation fee was low, but I won't use this hotel again. Many ants in kichen and bed room, cockroaches... And I had to pay extra fee (around 3,000 peso) for contaminated bed sheet. I supprised that the using fee for an extra towel was 400 peso for 1 day. The towel had even hole... I think that I can buy several new towels by 400 peso. The staff said the towel was very expensive one... If you want to check above, book this hotel.

    Bad experience ”

    I arrived at 1:30, but was not allowed to check in. This was understandable as check in is not until 2, but then came back at 2:30 and there still was no room available. I sat in the lobby until after 3 waiting for the room. The room itself was what I expected, but I was not expecting bugs. There were bugs in the bathroom, in the bed, and on the nightstand. I pulled the drawer out of the nightstand and there were many bugs on the inside wall. If that was not enough, the elevator was slow to be able to get on. The only positive was the location as it is right across from the mall.

    The hotel is great. The staff especially the housekeeping were not. we stayed for a few days there, we attached a do not disturb sign on our door because ive got a lot of deadline to be done. 2 consecutive afternoons that the housekeeping were shouting in the hallway for hours. they stayed at one of the rooms actually across ours and theyre so rowdy, noisy, shouting and laughed out so loud, i warned them the first time, they went quiet then the second day came, and the yelling started again. we stayed at 28th floor. Maybe you should monitoring them, they act as if they own the place and no one there is staying. so rude, please check your cctv if you have any. also the elevator is soo slow.

    Birch tower is greatly situated in a "happening place"!! but rooms are not well maintained. Beds are 2 star quality. Staff is not friendly. No room phone to call front desk, Broken furniture (sofa, TV stand); Room is decorated with very low quality stuff!! In the same building, JMM Grand Suites are far better, over 4 star quality whereas Hotel 168 is 2 star!!
