      Great value for money. Close proximity to everything CDO can offer. Loved the free breakfast (daily). That wonderful Christmas Village display looked lovely. Not to mention the ease of booking with the pay-at-hotel option. All-in-all, it was a pleasant two-day stay for my colleague and I.

      All Good

      An unexpected early arrival around 9 am and straightaway to be given a room, that is what I call service. The hotel looks not great from the outside, but as soon as you walk in, everything changes for the better. I inspected a few rooms, and especially the newly renovated rooms,, business as well as VIP, are great value for money. I choose for the VIP, a spacious room with TV, free wifi and phone, coffee maker. Clean bathroom, well equipped, very friendly staff. Good location in centre of town. The breakfast buffet is simple, yet adequate. In short, nice place to stay.

      About time to renovate”

      This hotel is evidently dated and needs some important refurbishing. PLUS POINTS. The rooms are big and generally clean. There walls are visibly repainted and the floor is generally clean. MNUS POINTS. The mattress is on the hard side (I was assigned at Room 234) , the bed sheet and pillows seemed to have outlived their glory days. The AC is inadequate, it is stuck at 24C no matter how hard to try to lower it, it can't even be switched to a "swing" fan motion. It is rusty and a bit noisy. The TV is still the CRT type and, although connected to cable, there is hardly any channel available,. You can tune in to the free channels like ABS CBN or GMA but after three minutes, they keep on being disconnected. There are about only a handful of unexciting channels that beam uninterrupted. signals. The most terrible part of the room is the shower curtain which is littered with water stains (the brownish yellowish marks especially at the hemline) that I find so yucky. The bathtub is clogged.

      The room was okay and clean though it was an old room I can't have a deep sound sleep due to noises outside, jeepneys and music. I was so sad when I can't log in to their internet, the password registers incorrect but the front desk insisted that is the correct password.

      Forgettable Stay”

      My reservation was for a queen-sized bed, but was led to a two-single bed room. I have to explain my reservation before being 'upgraded' to the room I reserved for. Wi-fi signal sucks, same as phone signal (at least at the 2nd floor). You have to stand close to the window to get a fair signal. Wi-fi signal is off and on. Noisy... children running around and people casually talking like it's their home... with shouts every now and then. Children playing with the elevators... Faded white linens and no extra toothbrush... TV is still the 80's model.... picture tube and all. Can you upgrade? or just slowly fade into obsolescence....

      Great location especially if you love walking as most malls are within a leisurely walk away. However don't expect much for so few pesos. Building is old and facilities need a make over. Stayed at room 209 and you can hear the street noise below. If your an outdoor person and a room in the city is just a necessity, this place is for you.

      Hotel is right at the very heart of the city, so accessibility is not an issue and the locals/ taxi drivers seem very familiar with the place. The room is big and the bed and pillows are very comfortable (not too soft/ hard; just the right stuff)! The staff are very accommodating, too! I was also surprised that for the price, they offer buffet-style breakfast, so well done! A little upgrade on some facilities (old and noisy aircon units in the room I stayed at) to make the place even more top-notch.

      Return to glory”

      The VIP Hotel was once the premiere hotel of the city located at its very center. However, the building and its facilities has succumbed to old age. It needs some improvements and upkeep. The staff has to be reminded to observe the highest levels of cleanliness and service. One thing great about the place is its unique advocacy to promote local cuisine. Thus, the lunch offerings of the restaurant includes native salads with local ingredients that could only be found in the city and immediate surroundings as well as native desserts and delicacies that have won awards for innovation in the yearly Kumbira (local version of the Chef on Parade).

      Our stay was quiet pleasant the only complaint is they didn't have a small refrigerator in the room so we were unable to have any cool drinks, and seeing we stayed for 3 days that wasn't good. The staff were good and attended to all our needs but we felt the restaurant was expensive for the quality of food, we only ate they on the first night and dined out the rest. Other than that it was good.

      Dissappointed in the cleanliness of the dining area, knew this was an old hotel, but it did once have a great tradition...definitely needs some more renovation. I did sleep well, the bed was comfortable and the air con worked. The shower was warm, but water dripped rather than a good shower head. Ok for savings...wouldn't pay any more for that type of service. So got about what I expected. Easy access to taxi.

      Newly Renovated Rooms, Great Food

      The VIP Hotel is now offering newly renovated rooms. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. However, towels were a bit worn out and needs to be changed soon. I also had to ask for a foot towel which they promptly provided. They only have one food outlet by the lobby. They serve very good food. The homemade corned beef is a must try and their ice cream made from fresh cow's milk is a perfect way to end every meal. All in all staff were very friend and courteous. Will definitely stay at the VIP Hotel on my next trip.
