Just good. No elevator. It's a hassle. I won't book this hotel for a family vacation. I was booked because it's for business dealing so I had no choice. Foods are just Ok a bit expensive. Not really worth it for the amount you pay. Rooms are clean but it's just OK nothing special on it. The only concern is... More

We booked an executive room but got really disappointed. Nothing about the room felt executive, it was less than okay. We got an old room, uncleaned carpet floor (bottle caps under the bed the two nights we've stayed there!!), small ants were crawling on the table and the bathroom was old with ants crawling as well. I did complain and... More

We ate there for lunch, they recommended a menu set good for one and when the food were served it was not good for one, good for half only, small servings for an expensive price, their so-called "gateway chicken" is a gateway to hell, very plain and very dry, Fastfoods have even better chickens. Food portions are so small. Ok... More

With friends who had their wedding reception there and the rooms really smelled. The toilets needed a good clean. The hotel is under refurbishment and looks a mess from the outside. The room where wedding reception was held was nice.

During booking they told us that there is a renovation but will be finish in May. renovation would be very necessary - but nothing. Only building extension in construction. Our room was worn-out and needs urgently renovation. The water was warm, but not hot. The aircons switched off several time (without timer) and we had to go up always to... More

Our family stayed here overnight. We find the hotel average but the rate for our room back then was also average, so I guess we were getting what we paid for. What we really appreciated during our stay was the friendly staff in the dining area.

This is just an average hotel to start with. The foos and rooms are nothing but very plain and ordinary. I foubd the mattress in my room to be very dusty, The outdoor pool however just made me like WOW. The function room near the pool is hard to access because it was raining when we had a meeting there.... More

Why invest in a hotel, and then employ third rate people ? I don't understand it, and they are aware that their reputation is in tatters ! We arrived and told them specifically that we wanted a room with a double bed. They offered me a promo room on the 3rd floor ( no lift ) so we walked up... More

We'e stayed there for more than a week. Reasons why me and my family hates the hotel because: 1.) When they cooked adobong manok for breakfast, we saw the chicken as hilaw. As in raw food. The outer part looks like cooked just because of the toyo. It still has bloods (color red and black) which means it ain't well... More

As I was here for a forum, I got to see the whole hotel. Yes, it was still undergoing renovations, but I find their renovations slow, as the lobby, toilets, and several others remain partially fixed. What they could have done was to completely fix it by phase, not having an incomplete makeover all over the place. The conference room... More
