“"Best location and nice room but not kids friendly"....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2014

We had a nice time here and good location for shopping too....but not safe for kids,the windows should have more extra locks,unfortunately the windows in our room is broken so we tied the windows using curtains...they should consider the childs safety but overall i like it...

Room Tip: We are on the 30th floor so i have no idea for the other room but i think they were all good...

Sir/Ma'am:

We would like to thank you for choosing Greenhills Elan Hotel Modern for your recent stay in San Juan. It was truly a pleasure to serve you.

With regards to the room, as we have seen your review regarding this, we have immediately take an action. Maybe the next time you will stay here it will be better if you will stay at the lower floor especially if you have a kids with you. Some of the rooms at the lower have a small windows only wherein the rooms are definitely child friendly and safer.


We would love to have the pleasure of seeing you as a regular guest.
We are looking forward to your next visit and wish you the best in your business and personal endeavors.


Thank you very much.

San Juan is centrally located in the Metro-Manila area, and the Elan Hotel is next to everything happening in San Juan. Located right next door to Greenhills Shopping Center, with an array of restaurants, Starbucks, J Co Donuts, and stores from the flea market up to the Virra Mall; everything you need is within yards of the Elan Hotel.

The staff at the Elan is extremely accommodating and as friendly and respectful as any hotel I have stayed in around the world. Starting with the delectable breakfast buffet in the morning, the clean and modern conveniences of the updated decor in the rooms, to the friendly smile and good evening sir from the doorman holding the door for you as you are retiring for the evening, the Greenhills Elan Hotel is the only place my wife and I stay when in the Manila area. I highly recommend staying at the Elan Hotel when in the Metro-Manila.

Room Tip: I recommend the Executive Suite for any couple staying there.

Our second time stay at Elan. The location is convenient for shoppers and parents travelling with young children. Very near to Greenhills shopping centre and restaurants. The aircon in the room is a bit noisy and huge, should change to a more silent one for a more comfortable stay. It is also time for the hotel to change its television set to flat screen one.

Room Tip: when travelling with children, a room with pantry is useful.

The hotel is in a great location, nice to be able to keep popping back whenever you need to.
The breakfast was pretty good, nothing special but for a budget hotel it was at the higher end of the scale.
The bed was good, the room was clean although our "non-smoking" room had a lingering aroma...
The other real positive was the massage place attached to the hotel, one of the best we have visited in Asia.
There were two notable negatives:
1. The air conditioning in our room was deafeningly loud.
2. The staff in the roof top bar and the staff at breakfast were quite poor. The hotel appears to operate a policy of massively over staffing with no training. At breakfast it's a bit annoying having waiters hovering around the table and whipping things away whilst you are still eating. That said maybe it gets busy and that many staff are needed at times...

Room Tip: Check the AC before unpacking...

We like staying at Élan, it was so convenient, especially if you have a toddler. Everything was so close and walking distance, the shopping, the restaurants, hairdresser, dentists, supermarkets and pharmacists. The only thing we noticed was the hot water in the hot shower was not enough and changed it quickly change to cold water. That's the only thing we didn't like. The staff are fantastic, very good customer service. Will definitely come back again.

We booked this hotel for our wedding preparations last December. We have searched online and really compared hotel rates and we were so glad to find Greenhills Elan! It was recommended by our wedding coordinator. At first, I was having doubts after reading the other negative reviews here at TripAdvisor, but since we were on a tight budget, we decided to book the hotel, anyway, even without doing an ocular (we went there a few times for an ocular but the rooms we wanted were always occupied). We got 50% for early booking which was a really great deal!!!

After booking, we still went to the hotel to check if our booking went through (we booked online) and we were told that only one room was booked! So we showed them the vouchers. They emailed us that our booking was ok after a few weeks. We were informed that if something goes wrong, one room will be upgraded without extra charge.

A day before the wedding, we went there to check in. We were told that the rooms are still occupied and asked us to wait for at least, 30mins. We already arrived there an hour late for checking in, which means, they haven't cleaned up the room yet for 1 1/2 hours after the previous occupant was supposed to check out. We were told that because of this, one room will be upgraded to Presidential Suite and they would extend our check our time to 1pm instead of 12nn. Of course, we didn't mind waiting! And we were so pleased to see the upgraded room!

Overall, we were satisfied with this hotel. We would certainly recommend it!

BUT... They should do something with their receptionist. I didn't get the name, but SHE wasn't friendly and accommodating at all!!!

Receptionist are very slow and only few seats are available at reception so you have to stand for sometime and wait.The room is average but we were lucky to be upgraded to a better room. The only advantage is the location which is a stone throw away from shopping and dinning area.
