The place is located in a nice and quiet location at the pier. Walking distance to some restaurants and malls, or otherwise take one of the jeepneys which stops out front. Breakfast at the Cysid needs improvement. It's a buffet with very limited choice and not very tasty. The room for a single traveler is not very spacious, but good... More

Ellis Ecotel makes no pretensions of being a luxury resort. It is a budget hotel through and through, and a pretty decent one at that. Located in Embarcadero (one of the many malls in Legazpi City), it's a good place for those on a tight budget. Despite being the lowest end hotel of the Ellis group (they have Hotel St.... More

If you're on a budget and would like to be close to the pier then this is your hotel. As for me...first and last time I'll be sleeping here. The ecotel is located inside a mall or the Embarcadero. Noisy and busy when the mall is open. The nearest restaurant, also where guests get their free breakfast is detached from... More

Price is just right. Location is very accessible from airport. The bar and restaurants downstairs are a good place to hang out in. However, my friend's room had a broken shower so they had to be transferred. Also, during the time we visited, there was a conference (networking, I think) ongoing at the ground floor. We were at the second... More

We enjoyed our stay at Ellis Ecotel. The staff was full of smiles and very accommodating. They were very professional and kind. The hotel was really interesting and beautiful inside. It was rather new and super clean. The rooms were situated like a cruise ship and the shower was huge with a rainfall shower head. The views from the hotel... More

The hotel is only a few years old, and the location near the wharfs is very good and only a 15 minute walk into town. The rooms are awful. No windows, dirty, mouldy bathrooms. They will not be cleaned unless you request that at reception. Breakfast is at a cafe downstairs. It is filthy, the food is Filipino only and... More

This is probably the best place to stay in Albay if you're looking for a comfortable yet budget-friendly accommodation in a secure and beautiful location. Ellis Ecotel have clean rooms at a cheap price. I booked for 2 nights (2 pax) for only 3,000 pesos, and the rate includes a simple breakfast plus roundtrip airport transfers. Bed is comfortable, tv... More

This would probably be the cheapest hotel in Legaspi that's got decent beds and restroom. Rooms are small -- it's just perfect to sleep in with good AC. Location is great, you can easily ride a jeepney or hire a tricycle from the mall entrance to get around the city. It is located in Embarcadero, so you can just go... More

Rooms are very cramp so dont pack too much luggage. Zy Buela at the Front desk was excellent. She handled everything very well... More
