This hotel has lots of history - literally. Its old, creaky, and has that dingy atmosphere of history - nothing of its classic look offers anything of significant value to the guests excepts its location - which is near paseo del mar and offers a view of the sea/zamboanga port (rooms are more expensive on that side though).

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in February 2014. We walked in to inquire if they had any rooms available and they readily accommodated us. Must mention Jerry, one of the housekeepers, who always had a smile on his face and went to great lengths to ensure that we had the room we wanted, a queen with pool view.... More

Stay in this hotel in Jan.,2014. Only a few guests. I like the atmosphere in this hotel. Lobby is quiet, the arrangement looks elegant. Room is quiet. Even the hotel looks not refurbished for many years, the room furniture, linins looks not new. But generally, all the facility maintained in good condition. Except my room’s air-con a bit noisy some... More

Got a chance to drop by this place while touring the city on foot. The lobby is very native-ly decorated and cozy enough to welcome anyone who is tired from a day of touring the city. The restaurant boasts of local and international delicacies and the rooms as i have heard are quite nice also. The pool is good and... More

Visited in July 2012 (10 days) and plan to visit again in July 2013. Some of the facilities and decor are a bit dated but the hotel doesn't advertise itself in the 5 or 4 star class. My room overlooking the pool and with a sea view was spacious and clean. Staff very helpful and service generally good. An excellent... More

It's the oldest hotel in Zamboanga City, though the facilities is not that at par with other cities in the Philippines, I kept on coming here for their food - especially the grilled pork ribs and panga. I just couldn't resist it plus its location.

due to the fact that the motif of the hotel is being antique then we must also consider that the facilities and decorations are also antique ... but those decorations is unimportant what is important is how the employee serves and satisfy their guest ....... bcoz a hotels mission is to satisfy guest .................... i think Mr. Crisanto Monsi Dela...

Still, i wanted to give them the benefit of a doubt, thinking it might be just a one off situation, i was wrong!!!booked a restaurant for a romantic evening with my husband and again we were... More

Indeed, the hotel is old but it is reminiscent of the old Zamboanga appeal. It is not in the pueblo itself but places of interest are either walking distance or just a tricycle ride away. If you forgot something to bring home from the city, a small trade center is just a few steps away. For South Sea and fresh... More

The facilities and decor are in desperate need of improvement. Poorly lit halls and rooms, the furniture and toilet/bathroom fixtures are old and must be updated ASAP! The room assigned to us smelled musty with a hint of insecticide! Once we even have to wait until 10:30 at night to be given bath towels! By the way, the sink leaked.... More
