This hotel is charming on the exterior and one very floor there are old memorabilia of World War II all along the walls in framed photographs and manuscripts/letter. The rooms are dated and lighting is not great but when I was there this was one of the few hotels that was still open post Yolanda. I had a room on... More

The hotel enjoyed a lot of unplanned coverage at the height of the mega typhoon , thanks to CNN's broadcast from its premises as the waters rose. Today, it is back in harness; hardly any traces of the devastation that may have set it back for months. The welcome addition is an outdoor grill that serves very reasonably priced dishes,... More

This my second visit to the Alejandro and can't commend it enough. They are currently renovating after Yolanda but even back in January it was the best place to stay. Now the pool is open and the rooms are being redecorated. Top marks for recovery! It's really busy though so try and book in advance.

I stayed here for 4 nights and it was a safe heaven I looked forward to coming back to each night after a long day of aid work. Clean toilets, nice spacious rooms, everything you need for a short stay. The food at the hotel is awesome too. Only thing is wifi only works in the lobby and there is... More

The Hotel Alejandro has seemingly been around forever, so it's great to see that it has weathered the latest challenges thrown at it by Typhoon Yolanda. The facade, lobby, spiral staircase are charming throw-backs to the past, and visitors interested in history can spend hours looking at the outstanding collection of photos and memorabilia from WWII and before, the MacArthur...

Spent there three nights in two different weeks. The hotel still suffers from the typhoon surge. Partially rehabilitated. Humanitarian crowd is there. With big smiles and their laptops. Some bottles of poor wine available (15 euro each).

I went to Tacloban to arrange for a meeting development partners. I was told that Tacloban was so ravaged by Typhoon Yolanda. The facade of the building is that of an old house (circa 1940's?). But there were newer extensions in 2 sides and at the back. The front desk was helpful and efficient. He gave me the LAST room... More

Hotel Alejandro is open after Typhoon Yolanda and housing many relief workers. It has a pleasant restaurant, lobby cafe and a pleasant old-world atmosphere. The staff is professional and friendly (if not the fastest) and everything is just comfortable and generally what you would expect for the price. Note: I was here shortly after the typhoon, so things in Tacloban... More
