The Oriental Hotel is known as the A+ hotel in Legazpi. It's the nicest hotel in town as the locals would define it. The facade of the hotel is really nice, and the inside would make you fall in love with it more. The lobby was spacious, having white walls and modern architecture made it appear bigger than it is.... More

The highlight of our three-day stay was the view of Mayon. It was just breathtakingly beautiful. We stayed at Room 202 and the veranda offers the perfect view. The room is beside the pool which may be noisy at times but won't be a problem during night time since night swimming is only until 8pm. I particularly enjoyed the breakfast... More

I've tried to post this several times but it keeps getting rejected. I owe it to everyone to post this review. My first room smelled like sewerage. I asked for a new room and, after 2 hours of waiting, I was given a new room that also smelled like sewerage. The pool is dirty. Guys hung around an entire day... More

This is my second time to visit this hotel and because I really enjoyed the first time, I brought my sister and mom with me this time. And it was a big mistake. -Airport pick-up was available for free with small bottled water. -Check-in was really slow. I was standing for like 5 minutes before they asked me to have... More

I visited Bicol for work but my parents tagged along. I figured why not? So i booked at Oriental hotel given they had a promo in one of the voucher sites. It was worth it and so much more. The room was not too big but it was enough for 3 persons. The twin beds can occupy 2 in one... More

Had a great stay here during Typhoon Rammasun. Great service and a real quality feel. The hotel is up on the hillside on the edge of town so walking to and from the hotel is difficult. However, the height affords views of Mayon Volcano which are genuinely world-class.

For the view of the stunning Mayon from their balconies, we booked a stay at the Oriental Hotel Legazpi following a day’s stay at Misibis Bay. Looking around further on the hotel’s webpage, I found that they’ve got more to offer in the form of packages galore like birthday treats, ATV adventures and more (depending on the season). Since it’s... More

It was my first time in Bicol and I was mesmerized by the view of Mayon Volcano everywhere. When we came to the hotel, I was even happier because my room was fronting that beautiful view of the mountain. I liked the displays of paintings and gowns made from local materials in their lobby. Our room was clean. Beddings were... More

This hotel sits on top of the hill. Yes, you'll probably get the best Mayon view but it's inaccessible. I really expected much in this hotel. It's nice in photos but that's just it. There's no much activity that you can do here. We could've gotten a cheaper hotel in Legazpi where we can enjoy the view of Mayon as... More

The room was immaculate (executive room)...almost. The bathroom has a sliding door but there was no way to lock it or at least hold the door so it remains closed. The food is unexpectedly bad for such a nice location with the majestic sight of Mayon. The breakfast buffet had spaghetti that was a carenderia type.
