I just checked in this morning and to say that i am disappointed is an understatement. If only I haven't paid the 50% dp, I would have transferred to another hotel. For P3,000+ for a de luxe room, I expected a lot more -- at least a nice room with buffet breakfast plus coffee/tea making facilities. What I got was a gaudy-looking room with worn, dirty carpet and toiletries composed of soap and shampoo. It doesn't even have the standard toothbrush/toothpaste set which even small B&Bs provide. The TV is old although thankfully, it has lots and lots of cable channels. And yes, one big plus is the fast and free Wi-Fi connection in the room. Btw, the bathroom is nice and modern enough.
I was informed beforehand that renovation is ongoing and that the hotel facade is being repainted. But i never thought that the painters will be working right beside my window (I'm on the sixth floor). Fortunately, they were quite noisy so I noticed that they were just outside, otherwise, they could easily peep into my room since the curtains were not drawn. The smell of the paint, however, managed to seep into my room and made me a bit nauseous.
Metrocentre is located right smack at the city center as its name implies so it's somehow noisy coz the windows couldn't really block off the sound from passing vehicles unless you decide to get the rooms at the back which do not have windows. It is walking distance to Asturias supermarket where jeepneys going to Island City Mall are parked. It also owns the BQ mall about 300 meters away. Hotel guests get to use the pool, gym, and game room for free. There's also free entrance to its bar/club.
The place is not really a sight to look at considering that it's the sister establishment of the lovely Panglao Island Nature Resort but since it's undergoing a makeover, hopefully, it can be as good someday.
