I'd stayed on May 27 for one night in Room 44 as "Economy Room" to go to Manila airport to depart for Japan on the next early morning at 06:00 AM. The hotel pick-up is reliable. Though my flight from Kalibo to Manila by 5J 342 was 90 minutes delayed and the pick-up driver didn't wait for my arrival, they... More

The hotel is currently being renovated. So they are asking for the guest's understanding, regarding noise while renovation is under way. They offer basic hotel rooms. And this hotel is mostly frequented by backpackers, mostly from The Land Down Under.

I stayed here again this year and the food service was greatly improved. The portions are always plentiful and tasty. The only complaint I have was with the noisy air conditioner in the room. I thought it was only in my room but when I turned off the air con I then could here all the other ones were noisy... More

Checked in & went up to room. A/C not working, tv not working. Room dark & dingy. Bed horrible. Was shown 2 other rooms. Both were bit better but still unacceptable. Demanded refund & left immediately. Found better for same money across road.

As stated by previous reviewers, this hotel is in dire need of a lift, room amenities are very old, linen old, tv old, elevator old. The air conditioner was loud and dirty, shower taps looked like they would fall off at any time, toilet ran constantly unless the flush leaver was pushed back up. The good points-yes there are some,... More

The hotel is old and has many old artifacts to look at. The Outback Restaurant on the ground floor gives it an Australian Ambiance. Free room amenities include a small bar of soap, water glass, towel, cable TV, fridge, and a full size bed on wheels. The economy rooms cost a medium price Php 2,250 but are very small. The... More

The real hotel has nothing to do with the impression it likes to give on the website. It's definetety not a clean old-fashioned hotel with style. It's the contrary - a rotten place where they should give you money for a stay instead of taking it. When I arrrived I was lead into a room which was smelling foulish. A... More
