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

Spent a night before our flight the next day. While it is definitely tops for service, the room was definitely disappointing. I'd say kudos to the staff and the free shuttle service to the airport. But I wouldn't book another stay because there was no hot water and no bidet and did I mention the room really felt old and... More

We stayed four nights and had no reason for complaint. Airport><Hotel transport is provided and the hotel is only a few minutes drive. Check-in quick and efficient which appeared to be the norm throughout the hotel with all the hotel staff. The room was very clean and comfortable with a view of the city, airport and hills in the background.... More

I stay in this hotel every time I go to Zambaonga City even though there are cheaper accomodations. I like the ambience, the friendly and accommodating staff - you can ask for more pillows, more hangers, the fact that the rooms have safety deposit boxes, centralized aircon, water kettle and coffee, bathroom amenities, wifi at the lobby of the main...

This hotel recently opened a new "Garden" wing to its hotel. They actually have two separate check-in counters depending on if you're staying in the original hotel or its new "Garden" wing. The check-in process, once we figured out that we were staying in the new wing, was relatively smooth. The lobby is well-appointed, the staff sufficiently friendly. The wi-fi... More

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
