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

Although I travel alone every time I visit the Philippines, I always have a posse when I'm in the country. Stayed here couple nights with some family members. First I stayed at their regular room. Then I upgraded to the aqua supreme room. Having an aquarium in your room, I must say that was the only highlight of my stay... More

I was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It was clean and comfortable and serves its purpose as a base of operations if you plan to visit the adjoining Ocean Park or do a tour of Manila. Definitely a better value-for-money proposition versus the nearby (and more expensive) Manila Hotel. We stayed at the Aqua Room and the aquarium was a... More

We stayed at the aqua supreme room. The room and the idea is very awesome!!! The aquarium wall plus the fish!! Can't find the word to describe it. Very fascinating to be in the room with different water species. It is the highlight of the room providing vibrant color and sound. However, they have very small pool, but very kid-friendly.... More

The reception area is located at the 3rd level. We arrived around 7pm. The front desk officers were very courteous & accommodating. However, our luggage was delivered after 40 minutes. It also took them almost an hour to get us a cab. But it only took them a few minutes to get us a cab the next day. Large &... More

I stayed from 9 to 11 Jun 2014. If you got lots of luggage, it will be a little hussle if you do not use the concierge service. Other than that, the check in was smooth and very efficient. Jay served and also brought me to the room and gave me pointers on it. I got the Deluxe and i... More

The bay view is great; however, the air conditioner was not working on arrival, the maintenance guy suggested closing the curtains to cool down the room, but what is the value of a bay view if you must leave the curtains closed? I suggested they move us to another room but 8 hours later we are still here. Other areas... 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
