Since they renovated their rooms, the ambiance have changed from a rating of 5/10, now it's 7/10, well at least. One thing that does not change, their FRONT DESK LADIES, still very poor service! They still don't have that costumer service I've been looking for. They are arrogant and do not smile.

There has been considerable improvements on this hotel since our last visit. Our room has certainly been updated. Gone are the old decors which looks like rooms from the 80s. It now has a more modern/contemporary feel to it. They now have a flat screen TV instead of the old box type TV sets. No view from our bedroom through,... More

Was very happy here. Prices (negotiated downwards) and service were brilliant, and staff really friendly and helpful. Clearly very popular (quite full) but not noisy. Simple but clean and comfortable. Staff all seemed to be making a special effort to please.

I have been staying with this hotel for over a year every time I travel to Zamboanga Sibgugay areas and Tawi Tawi. Before last weekend, service was ordinary, rooms were fine and affordable - if you only want to sleep. Their were problems like small cockroaches, dripping shower, non-existent hot water during morning rush hour, poor TV reception, etc. but... More

I had an earlier review of this old hotel, but now they have new modern design renovated rooms, new bathroom fixtures, lcd tv, air conditioning. The room is quite clean except for the insect or cockcroach smell that is coming from the bathroom drain. But it's confined to the bathroom. Quality of sleep was great.

The newly renovated rooms on the third floor have grime in between the floor tiles. The bathroom pee traps must also have not been installed properly as the stench of the sewer comes out everytime you use open the tap. There is no toilet paper in the bathroom. Need I go on?

For zamboanga city, there are only a 1-2 big hotels like Garden Orchid. There are many old hotels and there are some small but newer hotels. For my opinion, Grand Astoria rate would probably be an average hotel for the city. The lobby is well lit and very new, lots of functions and parties going on in the hotel -... More

This is the third hotel we have stayed in Zamboanga and one would think the Name should reflect the Quality, sadly NO. After a long flight from Perth Australia we arrived at the Grand Astoria at about 8am settled into our room to find the toilet would not flush, maintenance fiddled with it for about half an hour and replaced...

1. Room is soo bad you can't sleep because the function room is just behind you and the speaker is so load that all your things inside your rooom will vibrate. The worst thing is when you complain it, the management said they can not do anything about it but to wait till the party ends. 2. Comfort room is... More

I stay with my wife here for one nite only.staff are polite and friendly.Room not very nice.aircon very loud.bathroom really in a bad state.The flush lever actually came off and you flush by pulling on the string.That for me was the last straw. Lobby was nice and could mislead you into thinking the room is the same.Dont b fooled.
