The wait staff for the functions are really very helpful,especially with venue arrangements and other logistic concerns. We had some issues with the front desk at times, though. Perhaps because of overwork, they were not very accommodating at times. Ask for a newly renovated room to make sure you get the best value for money.

I stayed at Hotel Alejandro back in 2012 but that was only for an overnight after doing some fieldwork in Samar. I found it a nice hotel back then that had a lot of history about it and the city of Tacloban. I was back in Tacloban for a few days last April and we were booked at the hotel... More

This place looks great and homey from outside. Beautiful building and good location. The room we stayed at was spacious. Beds and furnishings were not new however - they were comfortable enough. Considering that they just went through Typhoon Haiyan - I think this hotel did good. The only disappointing thing - at the time of our stay there seems... More

Still recovering from the typhoon, but a hotel steeped in history and a WW2 Museum on the premises that is very interesting and worth the visit! Rooms are small, but clean. Can be noisy if you face the road! Nice cafe on the premises too!

The hotel has a great job recovering from Typhoon Yolanda. I recommend staying here and the room has internet as well. Since it is December the hotel is in Christmas lights. The staff is nice, and the food is acceptable. You can see the photos and videos at http://exploreTraveler.com

The lobby and common areas are nice and well decorated. The staff is charming and helpful. The restaurant is OK although you can find better for cheaper in the area. Ask for newer rooms that have brand new facilities (TV, Ac, bathroom) that are nice and modern. The rooftop offers a great view of the city

I wanted to stay a couple of nights in a good hotel in central Tacloban. This is why I choose the Alejandro. However it was a big mistake. Initially it looked good, a nice welcoming old style entrance, a helpful reception etc. The room looked good too, big and clean. The first night we opted to have dinner in the... More

This is not your normal Hotel with extensive carpets, glass doors, cozy corners. This is a king size hotel in a small town with passionate connections with the past. I checked in to the Hotel after a long after burning long hrs in the air. Yet, I couldn't resist checking out world war two history depicted through photo frames on... More
