Stayed there 3 nights last week for a training. Function room was big enough for the training, sound system was fine and food was great. Unfortunately wifi is so intermittent and very slow, I was not able to connect on the first 2 days, but on the last day, i was able to connect and it was fast. Also lights... More

Garden Orchid Hotel, is the hotel to stay in Zamboanga, so I've heard from everybody. But then, there are only a few good hotels in Zamboanga and Lantaka Hotel, where I've stayed last year has gone south. Firstly, the rooms here are huge with huge and very comfortable beds. The bathroom is likewise spacious with well appointed fittings and fixtures.... More

Keep in mind this review is for the GARDEN WING- the newly constructed tower of this Hotel. The room is spacious and clean, and everything is new. One drawback is the internet is only available thru wired LAN.So all you netbook / macbook users with wifi only devices will be disappointed. However, the internet is quite fast. Another thing you...

Stayed here overnight in the new wing, which is a lot better (and more expensive) than the original one, although they did give corporate rates. Checking in was fast and convenient, they seem to be familiar with business travelers' needs like adjusting to guests' flight schedule etc. Overall, the room was very good. Comfy mattress, pillows and beddings. Led tv,... More

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
