I once stayed here with my college friends and boy were we in for a treat-sarcastically speaking. The room that we were assigned to was a two bedroom deluxe. What we got was a creaking old room. Spacious but creaky and creepy. They had this "OK: facade, modern and fitting with the location of the hotel, but once, you come... More

I'm sure in it's glory days this place must have been wonderful. You can still see beneath the run down and well used exterior a once beautiful women of a hotel. A grand story of a Swiss man building a hotel in this tropical paradise to remind him of a chalet in the Swiss Alps. Much of the heavy dark... More

Garden Plaza Hotel may be disliked by some because of the location but not me . It is located beside Paco Park and I personally find it a plus . Aside from accommodation it offers, a few steps away you can visit the park where heroes were once buried. The park also has a beautiful chapel where most couples would... More

We checked into 3 rooms to avoid the floods in the area. Left an ipad when we hastily checked out to avoid further floods. I reported the loss a little over an hour after check out. Staff got back to me MORE THAN AN HOUR later saying the iPad was not there (though the tracking said it was before it... More

I stayed in this hotel 2 days, on my way out of Philippines. They had then a special offer at 1600 Pesos per night (including Breakfast) and at this rate it is well worthwyle, even if the rooms at promotional rates are rather small and without a window. However the bathroom was clean and well fonctionning. Conveniently situated within reach... More

We stayed at this hotel when we had our practicum in Jose Reyes Medical Center 3 years ago. We stayed for almost a month and I could say that they have an average and good accommodation for guests especially they are catering more than a hundred nursing students that time. They have comfortable beds, nice lighting, average breakfast. In terms... More

The view from the canopied walk leading to the hotel looked appealing and inviting. It shows a lobby that appeared like a courtyard with a charming fountain. The front desk personnel led us to the stairway where the guest rooms could be found. It is sad that the hotel didn't look apt to today's standards on modern day amenities. The... More

This hotel has a good location for the USA Embassy. It is not in the best of neighborhoods if there is such a thing in Manila. The staff at Garden Plaza were friendly and helpful enough. The room was average but there is only poor, pay for Internet in the 2nd floor lobby. There is a good Swiss Inn restaurant... More
