Garden Orchid Hotel seems to be the best hotel in the city. It is located near the airport so you will not be worrying catching up your flight, plus they have a free shuttle from/to airport. This hotel is very much recommended. Rooms are great and very wide. Although it's a bit expensive but it's all worth it. It has... More

A convenient hotel very near the airport(hotel-airport shuttle service). Architectural design is superlative at par with international hotels. Had lunch at the coffee shop, the food was served a bit late, but its worth the wait. Fresh grilled tanigue, crispy green salad and added to this is a room with the view of the swimming pool.A nice place to stay.

It is not really near to the city and you need to ride on a tricycle to get there. The airport is really so close by and you reach there by even walking......like a door step away.The hotel provides free pick up from airport to hotel. The hotel is overall ok, breakfast is just below 4 star standards.....otherwise the staffs... More

Big hotel few meters from Zamboanga airport. Spent there three nights. Rooms are ok. Nice silent sleep. I also had a terrace overlooking the swimming pool. Restaurant has some choices also for vegetarians. Got Red Horse beer, my favorite. Music in the restaurant (a duo with singer and electric piano) needs .... some revision. There are cheaper and better placed... More

Stayed here for one-night at their famous new wing. Overrated. Rooms are fairly clean, beds are comfy, shower and room are spacious. These do not however correspond to the price-tag. Maybe the hotel is really charging for the use of the pool since it is the only decent pool in the city? Breakfast also sucks big time. Plus point is... More

Don't expect breakfast is pleasant. The breakfast buffet is the poorest I've been to on this kind of hotel. But it's better than you have empty stomach during your meeting. By the way, never ever ever ever check on the old building room facing the highway. You'll get pissed off every morning by the noise of vehicles passing.
