Hotel is about a year open. Staff is very helpful and well trained. Room is spacious and nice. Breakfast is really good. But... the wifi in the rooms really sucks and in the lobby it is sometimes good sometimes not. I could not even open my mail sometimes.4G though has coverage in this area. Pity for a hotel like this....

Some web sites list all rooms as 30sq m but not so. If you are staying more than one night I would recommend the Admiral suite. Well worth the extra money. And you can bargain the price down. You'll have a view of the market place and more. The noise from the tricycles is a bit loud but I used...

If you're not too conscious about the hotel's surroundings, this place will just suit you. Located not too far from SM, GMall and KCC mall and just almost 30 minutes away from the airport. The place is near the public market but far from what other people think, the place is not too noisy :). The place is also near...

The hotel was clean and the room where I stayed in for about 4 days was big and spotless. The only downside is that there is no toilet for the men in the reception area. You would have to go to your room to use that facility. I stayed at room 405. It has a small ref and a wide...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Since 1993, Anchor Hotel has been one of the eminent hotels ever built in the heart of General Santos City with an overlooking view of the beautiful Sarangani Bay. It will take you about 23kms (approximately 30-minute ride) from General Santos City International Airport. It has also an easy access to the downtown business centers and government offices. The new Anchor Hotel is a five-storey building inspired by maritime concepts mixed up with the touch of modernization without even leaving the rich culture of the city. It provides exemplary services to all guests - both locally and even worldwide. It has 40 well-styled accommodating guestrooms situated at the 3rd and 4th level of the building. The rooms are equipped with flat screen cable TV, IDD/NDD telephone, hot and cold shower, and free Wi-fi internet connection. A very calming ambience of coffee shop at the ground floor and fully air-conditioned and soundproof function rooms with the relaxing view of the Sarangani bay and the busy city. This is a perfect place to dwell in while in Gensan. ... more   less
