The hotel is conveniently located near restaurants and a grocery. It is a jeepney/tricycle ride away from the city center (malls, other landmarks). Although, the entrance of the hotel is inside a decrepit mall which has obviously seen better days. This was a bit of a turn off for me. The size of the single room is enough for 1... More

For 1,500 pesos, it's ok. Just manage your expectations, you get what you pay for. Room is really small, the air conditioning was not working properly. We had ant-man and his army as room mates. The staff was very helpful though. They were there to assist us with our bikes.

Stayed there for 2 days. Breakfast is not included. Room was okay, but a bit disappointed to find some kind of insects in my room. And Jessica, the receptionist who attend to me is not that accommodating.

I stayed there for one night just because i had to take an early morning boat to rapu rapu. There is nothing much you can do in Embarcadero shopping mall. Most of the shop closing down but the Golden supermarket is worth a visit (Lots of savings!!). Also, if you wish to go for karaoke, its just 20mins walk after... More

Regular rates get you a free airport shuttle service. Staff were courteous and accommodating. There's also free buffet breakfast. If you aren't very particular with a hotel, this is good enough for budget travelers. If you book through their partners, it's actually cheaper but there's not shuttle service from the airport. Don't get the rooms w/o view if you are... More

I just had a vacation in Legaspi last May 26 to 31st. I was billeted by my travel agency at Ellis Ecotel. Since, I arrived early at around 10 am, I advised by the front desk personnel that check-in time was at 2 pm. So, I left and went back at 1:30 pm. Apparently, housekeeping was still cleaning my room... More

They let me check in earlier like 10am since there's already an available room at that time.The room was just right for me and I had a good sleep.It's a budget hotel,with free breakfast and free airport transfer.The people were also nice and immediately attended the needs.I think they just have to work on maintenance.

Rooms are very basic and small but are affordable. The cheapest i think is around P1k for a standard room with a single bed, no view. This type of room is not for those who are not used to confined spaces because there is no window. Initially we occupy the Deluxe room with a view for P2500. It has 2... More

We stayed here last May 22-23, 2015 for a business trip. Here are our comments on the hotel: Negative: - hotel smelled bad (smelled like cockroach) - the desk officers made us wait for about 30 mins before checking us in. If we did not call their attention, they have not assisted us. - asked for a change in room... More

We stayed at Ellis Ecotel as one of the recommended hotels by my colleague who is from Legazpi. Since we stayed here during the Holy Week the mall was closed on Good Friday so we have no option but to go to some other place to take our dinner. Advantage: 1) Friendly and courteous staff. 2) Location itself is very... More
