“Disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 9, 2013

Arrived at Bacolod Airport, spotted your ad, phoned, was told yes you had a room for 10 nights. Got a taxi to your hotel, wonderful new reception area, i thought this will be nice. Only to be told there were NO rooms, and yes we could help you with finding a room in town, please wait. Then came over to say there is 1 room, but its a smoking room, to which i said ok lets look. Well it did smell but i was prepared to live with this for 5 days and move 5 days later to another room.
But the shocker came when we went to bed, only to find the mattress was NOT A MATTRESS BUT FOAM. Angrily we went to sleep to be woken by renovations.
Went downstairs to a cold breakfast, and told reception we are moving out and would like our refund, to which this was done, but there were also no apologies either.
SO OLD
Would never stay there again.

Room Tip: Don't choose a room, just wait another year

Good value. Good food. Clean rooms. Good air conditioning. Nice big flat TV (don't know if there are still big boxed tv in other rooms mentioned by other earlier comments). Bar fridge. Microwave. Safety box. Good wifi signal. Clean bathrooms (but shower heads could be better). Staffs are friendly and helpful with your every need, be it asking directions, toiletries, towels, etc. Although location is a bit off (along Sebastian street corner Lacson Street), since all the neighboring stores are for cars / autos, but walking distance to wet market, Gaisano department store, Merci, thrift stores, drug stores and other fast food stores like McDonalds, Jollibee, Greenwich among others (approx. 2 blocks away). And just a 10 minute taxi ride to SM Bacolod from the hotel.

Good value modern hotel, clean with wifi, nothing luxurious but capably meets the basics. Friendly efficient service with a smile from all the staff. Woke up too late for breakfast so can't comment on that altho the dining room is simple elegance in keeping with the rest of the hotel.

The location is great during the daytime - being of walking distance to the wet market and a department store where everything is so much cheaper than Manila! Then Bacolod favorite pasalubong places like Virgie's and Mercy's are also near the market as well as favorite snacks like La Paz Batchoy. It is also an easy taxi ride to almost anywhere in the city.






However, its a differenct story at night - the hopping place of the daytime gives way to stygian darkness lighted only by carts selling food illuminated by torchlights or passing vehicles.



All the pasalubong places

Hotel is fantastic and so is the staff. never had a chance to try their breakfast as we woke up too late all the time. The location is a bit obscure and quite close to the auto-parts district of lacson street. Its proximate to downtown (but wouldnt walk around at night) and to lacson street. Hotel is well maintained, well run, very clean, and convenient. O Hotel is easily comparable to a 2-3star hotel in europe or us. beds are comfy and slept well-and mind you im a light sleeper...

Hotel was 3municipalities away from the Airport. Expect to pay Php500 to get to hotel from airport.
Hotel was friendly; the taxi drivers knew where it was. It is located in the middle of uptown and downtown Bacolod. It has a fruitstand on the corner of lacson and san sebastian; virgie's pasalubong is one block away. The buffet breakfast was good for the Php235 we paid for it. And it was very clean!

Room Tip: street gets noisy as it is 2blocks away from the provincial hospital- ambulances at night. also cur...

I just stayed in this hotel for one night only in a 412 if remember correctly. Actually I transferred from a different hotel since I didn't like it there.

Anyway, this O Hotel provides you nice atmosphere with a reasonable price, or even cheap price. Premises are guarded, parking space is safe and their restaurant offers excellent menu.
And a side comment, 'one of their restaurant cashier girls is also cute' :)

Only thing I was thinking to replace are the outdated box type televisions which should be already upgraded to year 2013. I would stay here anytime again.

Room Tip: I was thinking that upper floor rooms might be the best since the hotel is next to a busy road.

The ambiance of the hotel is warm, the staff in the reception are all nice. Experienced a fast check-in. Clean surroundings. The room is big, clean bathroom. With basic amenities. Transportation won't be a problem because their security will hail a cab for you and will tell the taxi driver where to drop you off. If you don't want to take a taxi you can walk 1-2 minutes to jeepney stop.

I'll recommend this hotel to friends and family. The rate is good considering the comfort you will have staying in O Hotel.
