“The worst experience ever”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2012

I am trapped here because they asked for the payment upfront and now say I cannot leave a day early because they deposited my money into the bank already.

The only reason I was lured here to begin with was because other locations you have to go to the lobby or restaurant for wifi. Here you have the option to log in in your room, after two hours of the network loading up.

Standard rooms in other locations mean a king or queen size bed, table with chairs, tv, ac, and a closet. I am here with my wife and 2yr old daughter in a 8 x 8 ft cell with no room at all.

Room Tip: Be either 5 ft or sleep diagonally

Ok...this is a budget hotel...u can't expect too much. If you are looking for clean and convenient location...and maybe good wifi connection, this would be your hotel. My room didn't have a window and fridge but I was ok with it since I was there to sleep. The location was good...robinson mall is a block away...you can access to many bars and restaurants in walking distance. Ayala center is maybe 10 min by taxi...less than 100 peso. They would provide breakfast coupon for Jollibee next door which I didn't like too much.

Room Tip: you can ask a room with window...

Love this place, and I would recommend to anyone. The family room with loft is big enough for 5people or more and just ask them for extra bed. It is not 5 star hotel, but the place is clean. The staff is very efficient and convenient location-wise. I had AC problem at first, but it got resolved right away as soon as the maintenance guy came and fix it.

**FYI: Leave the key inside your room, so your room stays cool and just ask the front desk to open it for you when you come back.

The hotel is located on the 3rd floor of the building. Front desk was accommodating but it made me wait for a couple of minutes to get to my room. The room was modern and stylish but it is very small.. toiletries are well provided, clean linens, great bathroom and well lighted room. You could hear your next door neighbor or footsteps on the hallway at times. My claustrophobia was a bit triggered during my stay.. I guess because stairs and fire exits are not very well emphasized, but its there you just need time to explore. And free breakfast? not breakfast on bed you need to get out of the hotel, with 3-5 minutes walk to a fastfood chain (Jollibee) to get your free breakfast.

Room Tip: Shopping tip: Malls are walking distance or a jeepney ride away right at your doorstep. Banking inst...

I stayed at Gran Prix for only a night. The amenities are very basic but the room (including the restroom) was clean and the wi-fi was working properly.

I got the Deluxe Room. It was small but not dingy. There was no window save for a very small one next to the restroom door so no breath-taking views of the city, naturally.

The staff was accommodating but not memorable.

The location is very near the Fuente Osmena Circle which is not very ideal for those who fancy a more upscale environment. It is very near restaurants and other commercial establishments though. Just across the street is a Robinson’s mall convenient for any basic needs. A few blocks away are bars and clubs but I’m not sure if they’re any good.

There’s nothing special about the place but if you’re on a budget, it would suffice as the property is clean and the room rates are very affordable.

Room Tip: Shamrock, where most tourists buy pasalubong/gifts, is just a stone’s throw away somewhere around th...

We stayed in the 'family room' which is a split level room with a double bed on each floor. They allow 3 adults to stay in this room which has a sink, microwave, fridge and 2 TVs. For the price (only marginally more than the much smaller normal rooms) I think this place is a great deal. Breakfast is a voucher for each guest to go to Jollibees!!!

Room Tip: only book if the family room split level is available. they only take cash btw.
