The place is very strategic because its a walking distance to robinsons and palengke (supermarket) where you can find jeepneys bound to san joaquin church and other places. My first impression about the place is not a positive one, because it looks like an old establishment where anything can happen anytime. It was changed when we were escorted to our... More

Ong Bun pension House in Ledesma Street Iloilo city, what I had in mind when I booked for this place is commercialized yet homey place to stay. It is a walk away from Robinson's Plcae, SM Delgado and Mary mart. I was happy with that. But the moment we step into the Pension House, it made me think twice. The... More

I chose this because of its location and was glad I did. The best of Ong Bun is its proximity to Robinsons Place, Marymart mall, SM Delgado and Amigo Mall. I stayed in a single room at the old wing. It is very small but it's the only room that has access to wifi in the room, others not. Mattress... More

The place is decent for a few nights' stay. Rooms especially on the part being renovated are nice and spacious, reasonable for the price. If it's not peak season then you can luckily get a really nice room.

A good place for backpackers and for overnight stay. Although the room rate per night are cheap but there some issues that I don't like. Price we pay here is not worth it at all. For the room, a big room for 4 of us (me and my friends stayed there overnight. Leaving on the next day for Boracay) .... More

Some of the frontdesk staff are liars! Weve been there two times and they always offer the room worth Php720 and told us no more Php580 room is available. But later the others were able to get the room worth Php580. They just wanted the higher cost rooms be occupied first.

Affordable near commercial areas. Near the malls. Friendly staff. You can also leave baggage for a few hours while you you are out. Wifi is available but not in all floors. A need to go to the common area or lobby.

The best place to stay for backpackers. They respond to your emails immediately. The rooms are cheap, clean and spacious. Aircons are working well. Front office needs improvements. Wifi is working well except standard room.

We reserved for an executive room (advertised as newly constructed) through SMS but upon arriving we were asked to wait in the red old sofa in their reception, we did wait for like 20 minutes. When they noticed that we seem to be in a hurry, they offered the vacant double air-conditioned room with private CR, which has lower price... More
