The Garden Orchid is an oasis in beautiful Zamboanga. With so many choices of hotels the Garden Orchid should be your hotel of choice which offers free transfers from the airport, good sized rooms and the friendliest of service, starting at the reception and flowing through to the quality restaurant and room service. The pool with in the hotel courtyard... More

Aside from being cheap, with big rooms and accessible shopping malls, the hotel staff are pretty helpful and quick to respond on my needs. The security guard was very polite and friendly. This place is very quiet and well maintained so you can enjoy your stay. My room is average with queen size bed and shower, they also offer free... More

This hotel is the biggest, the most luxurious (and admittedly the most expensive one, based on published rates) in Zamboanga City. If you're looking for a place to just crash into at night, after a hectic day of running around town, you might appreciate a hotel or B&B that's a lot cheaper. But if you're looking for a place to...

I used to stay in this hotel a lot whenever am in the locality. Going back after 20 years, i chose to stay again here thinking they have maintained their place. To my dismay.. I stayed in a standard room as they said there were no other rooms available. The roomhad a rickety airconditioning unit, it ws noisy all night... More

Being my first visit to Zamboanga City, I was happily surprised that the Orchid Garden Hotel was comparable to the hotels in Metro Manila or even overseas. We stayed three nights. Our room was in the modern and spacious new wing. The lobby on each floor, is sunny, open and spacious. The stairways encourage one to skip the elevator. Our... More

While the hotel has made expansions and renovations, some things never changed. The news rooms are just average yet it doesn't seem to match its pricey rate. It's also not sound proof. WiFi, which is a standard, is nil. Breakfast fares needs a lot of improvement. I like the lobby of the new wing, though. Location is still its strongest... More

Stayed overnight. I could actually see the airport from my room. Stayed at the "new wing". This hotel has a lot of potential to becoming 4-5 star. Clean lobby with free wifi though erratic. Rooms were very clean but did not have any wifi. Sockets were near the bed for those who want to charge phones at bedside. Slippers, shampoo,... More

We had a good stay. Our room was located at the new wing of the hotel which is quite new. The hotel is located very near the airport (3mins away) and they also provide free shuttle service to/from airport. Breakfast buffet option is quite minimal and food taste is just average. On the negative side, rooms have no wifi and... More

I might typical review this hotel a little lower than four stars but I have to consider the location. Pros: Convenient to the airport, free internet (just not wifi), a roof over your head, exceptionally friendly staff Cons: Dated rooms, no wifi, cockroaches covered one of our guest rooms Like I previously mentioned, this is a substandard hotel if you...

Make sure to request for a room in the new wing. The rooms are pretty decent. No free wifi, but they do offer free internet services. You just need to request for a LAN cable. The room walls are quite thin, though. It was kinda hard to sleep at night when one of our neighbors kept talking loudly! Hotel staff... More
