The hotel is clean and located within the city. Near to banks and pharmacies. Transpo are accessibles. Ideal for seminars. I would go back here in the future. The staff are kind and helpful. Foods need to be improved though.

This hotel's location is very convenient. Grocery right across the street. 4 banks within 10 meters. Trikes abound. The flip-side was, our room was located facing the street and the noise bothered me a bit. Room was clean and beddings just right. Hot water was intermittent, though. And, you'd have to wait a looong time before hot water flows out... More

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...
