I booked two nights only to find out that they would refuse my fiancee to arrive at the hotel before me. I contacted Carla at reservations and informed her that my flight did not reach manila until that night and my fiencee would arrive there earlier. I provided a copy of my passport and a statement that she was authorized... More

we booked an aquarium room. I really love the aquarium wall and the bed is nice. although the reception is a bit unfriendly. Also we expected the swimming pool to deeper and wider from the name of the hotel itself. The toilet is not flushing, we called the reception twice and they sent a mechanic who said he fixed it...

I have stayed at this hotel several times during my trips to Manila since 2012. Service level has always been inconsistent. Recently, I travelled with my wife and child and stayed for one night. Originally, I planned to stay for two nights if not for the cancelled flight due to the typhoon. I called up a day prior to my... More

March this year we were in Manila for a week. Some business and some romance. It is a family hotel with an aquatic theme. Downstairs many shops, eats and full blown aquatic shows. We did not have much time for that but there were plenty of folks coming in for the day. We had a great stay with the foods,... More

Check-in is quite slow. We arrived at night and find it creepy due to the hotel reception is on the 3rd floor with only a few hotel personnel. Rooms are beautifully designed. The size is enough while the bathroom is totally made of smoke glass. I like the modern effect and the smell of the room. It is neatly done... More

I am very pleased with Hotel H20. Checked-in at the hotel last minute, and I'm so glad that I picked this hotel instead of the others. It was my birthday, and I just wanted to relax because I've been so stressed! Check-in was a breeze, and upon knowing that it was my birthday, "Kevin" one of the front office staff... More

For the longest time, I’ve wanted to laze in front of the huge tanks full of marine life that are found in the aqua rooms of H2O Hotel. With a little help from my favorite travel agency, our stay was booked for three days and two nights with free tickets to the Oceanarium to boot. (Just in case you didn’t... More

What I liked: First of all, the bay view room is not as interesting as the Aqua room! Although the fish tank wall only lights up from 6am-10pm, it's all worth it...there's an option to put a blind down if you don't want to sleep next to the aquarium as the bed is literally next to it. Room temperature is... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Hotel H2O is the first and only marine-themed urban resort hotel in the Philippines. Opened on April 10, 2010, the hotel is part of the Manila Ocean Park complex in the Philippine capital’s historic Rizal Park. It has been designated as the official residence for guests and patrons of Manila Ocean Park.Every part of Hotel H2O has a connection to its namesake element, water – from its next-door proximity to Manila Ocean Park; to its location on the edge of Manila Bay; to its signature aquarium wall that adorns the inner guest rooms and grand ballroom; to the seafood specialties of its main F&B outlet, Makan Makan Asian Food Village; to the healing, negative-ion treatments of its wellness center, Zenyu Eco Spa. All these make Hotel H2O perhaps the most visually distinctive urban property in the country today. ... more   less
