Stayed here a few times for work. Large rooms (but request non-smoking to get a NS room, otherwise a good chance your room will stink of old smoke) but average decor. Staff very friendly and helpful, good security. Breakfast buffet is a joke and not worth paying for (Management please take note!) It really comes down to the friendliness and... More

This is the top-rated hotel in Batangas City. Take into consideration that this is not the Capital but a province, I'm actually quite impressed with the deco and recep given. I spent 6 days at this hotel. The negatives of the place is that everything is chargeable and breakfast selection is real bad. That aside, I experienced real good service,... More

Having stayed in this hotel 4 times from December 2012 to May 2014, I think I could give a reasonable review. As many reviewers have pointed out – this is the best hotel in Batangas city, and it really stands out by its outward architecture! However, this is Batangas not Makati (Metro Manila), so you have to lower your expectations.... More

I'm told that this is the best hotel in Batangas. To be honest, it's OK, but along way from being 5 star. The check-in process was OK, staff were friendly enough and the room a good size and clean. On a couple of evenings, there was alot of noise from an adjacent bar/club. It has a good size pool (but... More

The rooms are just basic looking only, quality of sleep is just so-so. Staff are not that friendly, it seems like some of them are just forced to smile at you. Otherwise, location is good and accessible, near to SM too. Their food are very good though. Should try their lechon kawali in sinigang!

Service was excellent. No complaints about the friendly and courteous staff. However, I would demote its 4 star rating due to lacking basic toiletries. For a couple, they give one bar of soap, one toilet paper, no hair dryer and just basic towels. Scrimping makes this hotel penny wise and pound foolish. To save a few cents, the hotel managed...

Stayed at the Premium room on 19-21Dec 2013 with a total cost of 16,600 pesos including extra charge because one of our kids is already above 12 y.o. Other hotels do not charge extra as long as the family of 4 will not ask for extra beds. Breakfast buffet only consisted of garlic rice, embutido and egg omelet plus the... More

Rooms are spacious, but the bathroom is too small and needs renovation. Service is very good, staffs are courteous. breakfast buffets just has bread, jam, butter, some fruits, an egg item and rice. They food served during dinner and lunch is good.
