The rooms are very big, well-lit and beautifully formal but also lend a comfy feel. All you would want to do is revel in their queen size beds and their special ortho pillows and fluffy comforters. They had this beautiful dresser and matching lounging English chairs, top to bottom draperies lining the whole window side. On the outside, it runs... More

For some reason, this Hotel is always teeming with guests and visitors. Good for its owners and for its staff, may the business of this Hotel continue to thrive, even if I chose not to stay here again and any more. I was there at this Hotel last month to attend some meetings. I was first given a old room... More

Pongos offers rooms in the new and old parts of the hotel. My budget couldn't stretch to the new so I had a room with noisy air con, run-down furniture and cockroaches. Still very much part of a building site the snazzy entrance hall is deceptive. I'm sure there is much better accomodation elswhere and it's not really worth the... More

Stayed during a seminar/conference. Spacious parking. Working elevator Rooms are basic with an old world charm. Thankfully old world didn't mean cockroaches. I could tell the hotel was old from the dated wallpaper, fixtures and beddings. It was clean though. Bed was too springy for me. And staff were bit too slow in accommodating requests. There was poor wifi reception... More

The first hotel ever which offered me rooms with or without cockroaches. Don't end up in the old part of the hotel. There are much better alternatives in Ormoc then this hotel. Its all, except for the entrance, rundown and bad maintained.

This hotel is very basic. Beds, sheets and towels are clean and they have strong WIFI connection.It is centrally located and there are eateries nearby so meals should not be a problem. In addition, they also serve reasonably priced food from the hotel so late night meals will be accessible. Other than that, this hotel has nothing more to offer.... More

New Pongos hotel is not really new, it lacks most of the basic things a hotel needs. The only positive thing if you will stay is it is very near the city center but if you have a car I would strongly advise not to to even consider this place. I would advise the management to consider renovating the hotel.... More

Stayed here one nite before going to the girlfriends town, paid1,100 for a standard superior room, hotel has a beautiful staircase leading up to the rooms, but that's where it ends. The halls are dark and dirty and the room was shabby and outdated, cheap foam mattresses that kept sliding of the bed, the bathroom was terrible ,dirty gray towels... More
