I stayed here a couple of weeks ago; they have this promo in their website then. Before going to Olongapo, I called in first to check the availability and the room rates and everything was ok. Before leaving manila, I called in again to check with them. I asked for the Executive Suite since it's in promo and everything else... More

The first thing i noticed when i entered the room is its classy furnishings and cleanliness of the room, it rivals that of 5 star hotels. you get this and complete toiletries for Php 1,500.00 on 24 hrs stay, breakfast included. There is a sealed glass window on top of the wall where natural light could come in. The shower... More

It was far more than I expected in the photos and pics shown here. Kinda showroom for me. Cabinets do have smell that's why I kept it closed and big pillows scattered on it when I opened. No floor mats in case of drippings on the floor. You better asked for it. Low water at the lavatory (it's 4th floor... More

This hotel is a perfect choice for backpackers. For Php 800 per rm per nt you get a standard room. Its near SBMA gate - one jeep ride to SM Olongapo or 5mins if you brought your car. But there is all to it. Their front office service is poor. Their wifi in the room is only available for select... More

Inns are a hit and miss choice. This time we were very lucky. For the price you get a lot more than the basics at the higher standards than most with very helpful staff to boot. Relax at the roofdeck it sure is pretty. I wish all the inns are the same.

My family and I, and some family friends were first time travellers to Subic and Olongapo so we were absolutely clueless of where to stay there. I was tasked to look for a place to stay there, and i just relied on pure research online. I chose this place primarily because it was amongst in the bracket of the affordable... More

The pictures on their website seem to be more what they are striving for and less what the reality is. In fact I'm not so sure that these pictures were taken on the actual property as I didn't see any of these images. In the end it's a cheap option, it's clean, they are friendly, parking was available, they bring... More
