big rip off
Facilities require improvements”
Stayed at the hotel for 5 nights during Sept 2016. I am very disappointed that there was no wifi in the room for daily guests - i had to sit in the visitors lobby but the reception is absolutely bad. I spent more time waiting for pages to open and the wifi keep disconnecting. The fridge in the room was very old and in poor condition. Cleanliness was good. No room service, no assistance with travel (cabs, local tours).
Worst not worth it”
No free water everyday, The pool is small. There are rats in the ceiling. Very noisy staff in the hallway..
No wifi in rooms was a big minus.
Not worth the money
Ideal property for private meetings & accomodation”
nights at the garden plaza hotel”
location was good ,the breakfast was good ,the reception area
my stay there was ok,if you like it dark in your room then the standard room will suite you well as there are no windows so make sure your watch is working to see what time you wake up the swimming pool is more the size of an over large bath,apart from tose 2 things its an ok hotel 2 star max
Isolated & scarry street”
Quiet & Isolated from busy traffic
This is like an open bungalow without Air condition, except inside the room.Most of the room are without windows. The street was a makeshift for the homeless family,where they camp,cook & sleep during the night.The surrounding look scarry & isolated at night.
Staff helpful, friendly. Green leafy park opp”
Small pool, friendly staff, air con in room
First night was in standard room, NO window, upgraded to superior room, worth it.Find somewhere else to eat and good taxi drivers out on street to help with day trips at reasonable rstes.
room with no windows paco church/park across road”
paco church/park is very nice with large acacia trees and old walls with a foot path. theres a swimming pool.
The room has no windows and no balcony so right there is a guarantee I would never return. Paco church/park across the road is really nice and there is a tiny rooftop pool that's nice.
Staff are crappy. Didnt clean our room even with their please clean sign. There is a very expensive swiss? Restaurant downstairs that I didnt bother trying.
Interesting Hotel !!!”
Location. Staff.Large Room.
I really enjoyed my couple of days at the Garden Plaza. Hotel is old with large rooms ... It also has a small pool on the roof top. Hotel is situated in a quite area however close enough to walk to the malls etc at Malate.Staff were excellent ... Would highly recommend this somewhat unusual hotel particularly those on a budget.
Garden Plaza is a good deal for the money.”
Staff was helpful, rooms were clean, and the bathrooms were actually up to par with some 4star places
Good value for the money. A little far to go places in Manila without a car.
Ok but would not go back.
A sad place”
With some imagination and investment, this could make a charming boutique hotel with a courtyard garden surrounding a pool. Unfortunately, the owners have decided to cram in as many rooms as possible and turn the courtyard into a car park and utility area. Corridors leading to the guest rooms are gloomy and forbidding and many rooms have no window. The place looked to me like a serious firetrap and I worried about my safety in case a fire had broken out during the night.
This is a shame, because there is so much potential here. The hotel has a great location in a quiet side street on the edge of Malate, The public areas of the hotel are quite pleasant, however guests are given no reason to linger there. Incongruously, the hotel restaurant reproduces the atmosphere of an old Swiss inn and is quite pleasant, and my breakfast was quite good, but guests are obliged to pay for meals and other purchases in cash rather than charging them to their rooms, which I found inconvenient and rather insulting
Not great, but fine
just sooo dull and drab”
the room, the parking, the exit
Such a drab and lifeless place, the staff where disinterested the guests looked boored, the computer in reception did not work and the staff didnt care. I only stayed here with my old man.
staff were excellent, very polite and helpful. Location is the best. walking distance to every life neccesities.
I stay at Garden Plaza several times with my husband, and we enjoyed it a lot.this time I was by myself and it was terrible. They are renovating and the pounding was rigth on top of my room,it is even hard to hear the TV the bathroom was flooded there is water coming from the wall and the shower head is off target,it is higher than the curtain so if you turn it on water is outside and flood the are.the room smells very moldy too if my husband was with me Im sure it is not going to work but because it is only me I put up with it for 2 nigths.Now I have second thought about going there nextime.
