This hotel is perfect for history buffs. It is a WWII museum and has some very unique architecture. Rooms are basic but nothing negative about them. The on site restaraunt is not that great. Staff was very friendly. Wifi in room works well. I showed up without a reservation and they accomodated me but as other reviews on here state,... More

I reviewed the hotel in 2009 and this year we returned and booked a room for a 3 week stay. Let me say first that I understand that the typhoon was a horrible catastrophe and they've worked hard to restore the hotel. That being said though, our stay wasn't good and we wound up changing hotels after a few days.... More

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
