      Very goodFor the area it’s a good Hotel. If it were the same hotel but in Singapore foe example, it would not be so nice. The rooms are nice size and the service is excellent, but the one negative is the bathroom particularly the shower. It smells. It has s built in rubber mat that smells like mold. I don’t think it gets deeply cleaned. Shower needs completely remodeled. Water is awful alternating between hot and cold, mostly cold. Water from sink has no pressure. I only recommend it because there’s not much to choose from in Legazpi. Bed is comfortable as well as AC. Poor WiFi service.

      Classy & Cozy”

      Classy interiors, decent rooms, yet reasonably priced. Very accessible: LCC Mall is just a few steps away, Ayala Mall also just about 2 blocks away. Embarcadero (highly recommended for Legazpi night life) is also walking distance from the hotel. Freebies received: 15mins foot or back massage & popcorn (thank you!) Pool is quite small but it would do if you just want to have a quick dip after that tiring ATV ride! Our only complaint (which is a MAJOR ISSUE for us): the WIFI never worked the whole time we were there!

      Hotel at the center of the city”

      The hotel is just within walking distance to malls like Ayala Mall, LCC,Pacific Mall and Embarcadero if u are a shopaholic.If you dont like to walk, trikes are just nearby or ask assistance from the receptionist for a taxi. The room that we took has a very big bed (fits 3-4 people) with the comfort of 4 pillows and white sheets.It has the usual toiletries except shower cap.Breakfast has variety and tastes good. The only downside is the rainshower which i think is not properly fitted or defective (when water comes out, you have to keep your self close to the walls for your body to be properly washed off ).Also, the grout in between the tiles in the bathroom needs some scrubbing).Kindly check room 303. Regardless, i will still book in the future and recommend to friends because the service of the staff at the reception, breakfast area and GUARDS are excellent!

      Room was just right for a family with young children,bed was comfortable and clean. The aircon was not too cold and the cover was broken,but it was fine. The bathroom was a bit worn out, hot and cold shower was hard to control,it tends to get too hot or too cold with just a very minimal adjustment . Swimming pool was off limits at the time of our stay and kids club has been removed. Buffet breakfast was so-so. Location is good,walking distance to mall/supermarket/restaurants. Staffs were very courteous and helpful. Free shuttle service going to the airport. Overall, our stay was pleasant and enjoyable, would recommend it to friends and family.

      Although the lobby was obviously facelifted, the room was outdated. The linens were a little bit smelly. The towels need replacement. The food was a so-so. However, i liked that our car was secured at their parking area. Overall, this hotel is good enough for the price you pay.

      This was the best value-for-money hotel in Legazpi that I've been to thus far. The room was spacious, the staff very friendly, very clean, and convenient. However, the gym was under renovation, thus not usable. Also, the building is somewhat outdated (like many other hotels, too, however).

      Love this place. I will be staying here again and again and again. It's very clean but could do with some touch up paint here and there. AC is a problem but ask for a fan and the two combined kept the room at a temperature I could live with. Staff were super helpful. Breakfast for me wasn't amazing, but then I'm British and this is most definitely an Asian breakfast. That's it. An honest and faithful review. A couple of minuses, but the pluses make up for it. Enjoy your stay. I did :)

      Affordability, Location, Comfort

      We got our money’s worth. The room was big for us to move around, generous with the cabinets and drawers so our bags & stuff weren’t cluttered, comfortable beds and pillows so we had good sleep for 2 consecutive nights after long tiring days. Buffet breakfast. Working WiFi. Wonderful staff. Accessible to malls, restaurants and other places of interests. These are things that we’d usually pay much higher in other hotels. The hotel though needs refurbishing (pool is closed, spa doesn't have aircon), but they can still get away with it.

      Location, Value for Money, Comfortable

      We enjoyed our 2 nights stay. Location is walking distance to malls and restaurants and transportation is also easy. The room is big, the bed and pillows are comfortable and what we appreciated most is that they have so many cabinets and drawers so our stuff didn’t have to be cluttered around. WiFi signal was strong and we didn’t have problems with the connection. Food in the restaurant may be limited, but they’re good enough. Breakfast is buffet. Free airport transfer. We really got good value for our money. Although we believe that the hotel is already due for a revamp. Their pool isn’t working, couches are stained, etc. Funny that the bathroom had ants all throughout our stay, even though we didn’t bring in food. Besides those, our stay was good and we will still consider staying at St. Ellis the next time we visit Legazpi.

      Good location, near to the Embarcadero and to shopping malls. Comfortable rooms. Well performing and friendly staff.

      When we are in Legaspi we always stay at the St. Ellis. It' is perfectly located, has well trained staff and the rooms are usually in good conditions. But last time we had a room that might need some overhaul. The airport shuttle works perfectly. Staff is well trained, friendly and helpful. The restaurant is good although we prefer to dine outside, where a great variety of restaurants is in walking distance.

      Large bed, free airport shuttle, courteous front desk clerks

      The hotel has free airport shuttle..the hotel shuttle was already there when we arrived at the airport. No hassle. I was happy. it was comfortable. We only had an overnight stay in the hotel..they allowed early check-in with no fee as long as the room is available. I booked in a deluxe room expecting I would either have the mayon volcano or pool view..but to my dismay, the view from the room window is only a wall. I think they placed us in a standard room. I didn't bother to ask coz I'm leaving for Naga the following day anyway. The room was clean. Bed was king-sized with clean, white, fragrant sheets with four comfortable pillows. The room has basic amenities. Coffee maker, ref, 32 inch LCD cable tv. They provided us with 2 towels, only 1 soap, no face towels. 2 dental kits,room slippers and shampoo was provided though. The hotel is centrally located. It was walking distance to LCC mall and supermarket and Graceland about 2 blocks away from the hotel. It was easy to look for tricycles and jeepneys. Overall my stay was good.

      clean, comfortable, helpful staff

      The airport shuttle was not around when we arrived, so I had to call, and it arrived after about 10 minutes. The hotel is only 10-15 minutes away by van/car. Check-in was easy, and we were upgraded to a room with a partial view of Mayon volcano (because our intended room was not yet ready). We were given a room on the fifth floor. Elevator was roomy enough and fast. The room was clean and fairly large with a queen-sized bed, large table along one wall, clothes cabinet with safe, decent sized bathroom. Best of all, all guest rooms and indoor areas are non-smoking, and internet was fast and free (but wifi only in the lobby and cable access in the room). The hotel staff lent us an umbrella (it was raining off and on on our second day there) and were able to provide advice on travel to some of the tourist sightseeing spots. We also had our breakfast packed on our 3rd day, as we left the hotel before breakfast time. Over-all a very pleasant stay.

      Centrally located with large rooms”

      Reasonable rates

      the lobby and reception area was nice and the people too. surprised to find that the room was quite large and the king sized bed was very comfortable. the only downside i notice was that there was only one small elevator for all the guests. the complimentary buffet breakfast was just fairly good. the hotel was centrally located in the downtown area near the malls and restaurants.

      Great Hotel with very friendly staff”

      Very clean and stylish hotel, staff are friendly and helpful

      After staying in a basic hotel in Donsol for 2 days and a 3 hr jeep journey from Donsol to Legaspi, we were overwhelmed by the very neat and bright Hotel St. Ellis and the friendliness of staff. When we asked the front desk lady for Legaspi's map, althougth the maps in her drawer were out, she searched all the drawers one by one, the desks next to the front desk and finally got one from the counter in a opposite corner. We were so thankful for her attitude and kindness. The bellboys, waiters and concierge at entrance were also very friendly which made our stay so comfortable and relax. We stayed in the Standard Room and the size was good enough for two of us. The room looked like what we had seen in the adoga's photos. Very good. Definitely we will choose Hotel St. Ellis when we come to Legaspi next time.
