I stayed at The La Rica Hotel for 2 weeks this April 2015. I found the hotel to be old and dark and in need of a new remodel. However, there was always a hot shower available.

The rates are really cheap but the service is bad. You walk by the lobby and the staff are sleeping on the benches and stare at you. I told receptionist to prepare my... More

Reasonably priced for such type of accommodation. Everything is within walking distance like food, transportation and entertainment. Rooms have hot and cold shower. Also has wi-fi, telephone and intercom connection. This is my choice hotel in Tacloban City.
