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.

Hotel's location is very convenient as it is just a stone throw away from the airport, they also have FREE airport transfers even if you do not arrange for it ( that's a PLUS) on the service. I was booked on the new wing as I knew the old building is already worn out. Rooms are huge, clutter-free and well-lit,... More

There are two sections to the hotel, old and new. Need to make sure you get the new section as the rooms in the older section are a bit worn but still very comfortable. The hotel has a number of good restaurants and some shops. Security here is very tight, which is always welcome. Staff is very good, helpful, and... More

We stayed in new wing and the room were very clean and well maintained, as we're the grounds and other facilities. Picked up at the airport by shuttle although, if traveling light you could walk the distance in 3-4 minutes. Check in was efficient, but cool but porters and housekeeping staff were very friendly and accommodating. Restaurant was good, with... More

This hotel is good only if you stay in the new wing, which even has its own lobby and driveway. I was quite surprised when I first arrived at the hotel and saw its grand lobby with chandeliers, cylindrical staircase and lounge area. I wouldn't be surprised if this is the grandest hotel in Zamboanga City. Rooms in the new... More

Location: it's near the airport. One could literally walk from the airport to the hotel in 5-10 minutes. It would take a tricycle ride to reach the downtown area though and tricycle drivers there take advantage of 'outsiders' so better ask for the fare first at the hotel. They are also near restaurants like: The Village, Hanazono, and Chinitos (great... More
