“quite from inside .. noisy from outside”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013 via mobile

actually i like the hotel it's so clean . the stuff was wonderful & expert in dealing with guests . the rooms design was so nice . but there's little disadvantage . 1st : the prices little bit high . 2nd u need to walk around 400 m. to reach the entrance . 3rd it's too much crowded at the entrance because of the museum's visitors.

We booked an aquarium room. The aquarium itself was interested and nice to look at.
The rooms are somewhat small though. Service is correct and nice, but could be better. It is clean though. A negative point is that around 6 am, the aquarium lights switch on (i suppose this is necessary for the well-being of the fish, so okay) but also a light in our room switched on (Not good for my well-being).
The hotel is clean though although i think its a bit more expensive then what you get in return. I don't regret my stay but i won't go there again.

We experienced a great stay at this hotel. The staff spoke excellent English, was very well trained and helpful. The rooms were spacey (bayview), super clean and the bed really comfortable. There was a minibar in the room and a fresh stock of complimentary coke, water and some snacks. Aircon worked fine. The location is perfect if you want to see Intramuros, Rizal Park, Binondo and of course Ocean park. Hard to catch a (metered) taxi sometimes, anyway you have to head to the main road 200 meters from the hotel (no big deal). Airport is about 30 min away, depending on the traffic (we went there 11am) and costs 800 Peso. It tool us around 30 min to get from Green Belt to the Hotel during Rush Hour. The breakfast buffet was excellent, ranging from Asian over Western to cereals and cakes. Best we had in Philippines so far. There's also a fitness center and a swimming pool free to use. Check in and check out went quick and smooth. Downside is that just outside of our room was a open roof bar which played music until after 12pm and with the curtains open, we could hear it very well. The bathroom is only covered by a half transparent glass door through which you can easily see the Silouette and hear practically every noise. take this in consideration if you don't like this intimate setting too much. The concierge is somewhat off of the lobby in a sort of outside booth, no problem with that though since you will be directed to the main hotel area very easily. We had to pay 200 peso for the hotel to take our postcards (I don't know how that's handled in other hotels here, but I usually experienced this as free service). Overall an excellent stay in a nice riom with good service and great breakfast.

A very interesting place to stay. It is located inside the compound of the Ocean Park in Manila. If you get a good room you can have a good view of the sea or a view of the side where the dolphin shows are held. The place is neat, very comfy, with very nice hotel staffs. Spacious parking is also available. A must try

My boyfriend and I love to travel and we've been to numerous places. It's not usual that you see such a beautiful sight in your room as we booked their Aqua room. The bed was comfortable. The aquarium is really something interesting. However, the shower area floods. Not so nice huh. It's accessible to the airport though, another plus. Service was another plus.

Will definitely recommend this hotel!

Just checked out at hotel h2o and its sad to leave coz i really love this hotel. Its our second time to stay but the experience is still the same. Manila ocean park is just downstairs so we had a wonderful vacation. Amazing hotel. I just wish they could have lower rates so that we could keep coming back.
