I think the location of the hotel is one of the selling features. Some people think this part of town is run down, and it is, but it is also the historic center of Iloilo and the most vibrant part. The Robinsons Mall is just a short walk away (and a mostly covered walk if it's raining) and there are... More

This hotel is fairly clean and moderately classy. The high points: Free Wi-Fi in every room was decent most of the time, the last hotel I stayed in Wi-Fi was very weak on most floors, you had to go near the elevators to get a good signal. The pool is stylish, lobby was spacious and welcoming. Rooms were okay and... More

Check in was quick, room was clean. The hotel is close to everything. Not the nicest looking neighborhood but really safe. The staff was very helpful except for a front desk lady who was not well versed in customer service. We went on the church tour offered by the hotel where we met our driver Winston. He is great, very... More

This hotel barely meets the minimum requirements to justify paying to say there. Hot water apparently is some sort of luxury in the minds of this hotel as we went 3 days without any hot water. Of course, such an issue could be addressed with the hotel manger --- if they had one. The front desk stated there wasn't a... More

Thank you for your review and I am really sorry that you were disappointed with our service. When we have water heater issues (which is sometime inevitable when equipment fails) we resolve that within the day or transfer our guest to another room. In the case of connecting to our complimentary wifi, we do not provide technical support with respect... More

We stayed here three times in May, as a base for visits to Guimaras Island and Antique province as well as for seeing Iloilo City. Our excess luggage was stored for free. The location is only several minutes walking distance to Ortiz Port for boats to Jordan, but not for the boats to Buenavista (which is a short taxi ride... More

We stayed 4 nights in this nice hotel. The area around looks a bit dodgy but the hotel itself is really nice, modern & clean. We had 3 deluxe rooms with balcony and the rooms are really spacious and comfortable. Enjoyed the bed and the linings a lot! Prices in the restaurant for food and drinks are reasonable. Free wifi...

Thank you for your comments and we are very happy to hear you enjoyed our hotel very much. For first time guests especially first time in Iloilo, the hotel neighbors may look dodgy but rest assured that they are just lower end establishments (carinderias) serving the needs of students and office workers around downtown. In fact they augment our guests'... More
