I had a business trip to Gen. San last month and we had an event in East Asia Royale Hotel. I also stayed in the hotel for convenience. It's not my first choice since there is a newer and bigger hotel in GenSan but I think that for a businessman's hotel, it's all right enough. There are small meeting and... More

Use this hotel only if you have too. Nor very clean. Wifi not working. Breakfast quite pathetic. Very limited choice of food and if you are vegetarian. .. you will suffer. Staffs are by their own. Not really motivated. One elevator broke down and when I got out they just smiled... no one really interested. Rooms are just ok. Silent.... More

It may not be the best place to hold seminars, especially big ones, and we had trouble moving around as we were crowded in the conference room. But the staff and crew are accommodating, always ready to help and serve. The rooms are just right, not bad if it will only be for a good night's rest. Wifi hardly works,... More

My family and I went to GSC without booking a hotel in advance. We arrived in the city past 7 in the evening very tired from our long drive from Davao City, searching for a cheap but descent place to stay. We passed by the Royale Hotel and tried to inquire about their room rates and checked their rooms first... More

Rooms clean but with tiny ants, beddings not exactly clean- with pink stains. Insects, so tiny you can barely see them, between the bedsheets gave me uncomfortable, restless, sleeples night. Wifi not working!!!!!! And worst of all, their telephone unit smell real bad!!! No exaggeration. Would definitely not come back to this hotel anymore and will highly advise our company... More

Hotel is nice, staff are courteous. Food is just ok. Front desk ladies need to present themselves professionally. Advice: never present yourself with wet & uncombed hair. And no make-up! They look like they just got off from a bathroom. It's soooooo unacceptable. And keep voices down, i can hear their loud conversations while i am sitting on the lobby... More

This hotel used to be the top choice of the city. I stayed more than 20 times during the last several years. But now I am thinking of changing to new hotels. Rooms are OK because of sheets and average amenities. But, towels are grey and hard. What I am not satisfied are the staffs at front desk and dining... More

Hotel is a bit old but with complete amenities. Breakfast is very good and priced reasonably. Since the room is old as well as the furniture inside it, improvement is needed in maintenance and housekeeping. The bathroom room was not cleaned well. I saw a lot of black dust on the floor. Hotel room needs further refurbishing.
